    There's no doubt that at the WACA, MJ is one of the two best options to come in. The problem will be saying "ok you bowled well at the waca but now we're at hobart. **** off".
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Well, well, well...

    Edit: He just spoke to Peter Walsh on ABC - no indication of retirement there.
    Well, no thought of retirement and he said selectors haven't spoken to him. He will have to be dropped as there is no way he will go on his own terms...

    ...I also feel there is no way he will score the 50 runs needed in Perth to keep his average above 52, which is a shame as he averaged near 60 in his prime

    This situation is just made for Huss to bat with the tail, and put on a stack

    I'm not gonna lie I'd quite like to see Johnson and Starc for Perth. Either way it would be entertaining....either absolute wicket taking carnage or a junk bowling extraordinaire.

    Why does the caption for Hussey have M. Hussey up, it's not as if Dussey will ever play test cricket, even if he's much better than Quiney. Might as well have I. Bell because K. Bell his bro exists.

    Mind you only a mild question, more fascinated by why the JPGA put up blood types.

    In normal circumstances, I'd say the Aussies have enough runs now

    However, with Pattinson down, and no Watson, we probably need 350 - 400 to feel comfortable

    I invented the Mussey / Dussey distinction/abbreviation on this forum

    I like to give it exposure when I can

    Would be nice if this test ended in a draw and the series hinged on the Perth test.

    I thought for a minute Tahir would bowl a maiden, but then there was that.

    Couldnt believe yesterday when Smith kept Tahir on for five overs when Ponting came in

    Got him to 16, and was on the way to playing him in

    Situation was screaming out for Morkel and Steyn to bowl in tandem immediately Ponting came to the crease

    He did it in the final test against us too, the only reason it got so close, Smith really seems to have a very strange faith in him.
