    In Perth they always talk about full value for shots, the ball going over the stumps at greater height so the players and umpires have to adjust, the Freo doctor and how it's a great 'seeing' ground.

    You gotta remember that not everyone who watches the cricket watches every game and knows all the commentators by voice and posts on a cricket forum.

    Frankly, you lot can't complain until you have Danny Morrison orgasming in your ears.

    which reminds me about ear sex.

    Chapelli will always remind you once you get in at the Wacca you can score really quickly.

    tbf I think he normally goes on about being either straight or horizontal, not in between, which is fair enough

    The not playing with a diagonal bat is definitely a big one.

    In my mind test cricket has always been about straight bat shots and the limited overs format about horizontal shots. Which is why seam bowling gets more purchase in tests and variation in the shorter formats.

    It really seems at odds for someone to suggest that horizontal bat shots are safer to play in any test match. Does the length at Perth really stay that true all throughout the game?

    For the record, I would pick Lyon over Johnson, but selectors get all hairy-chested in Perth (fast bowlers paradise; let's blast 'em out etc)

    Lyon a definite chance to play even with all quicks available, in my view. Has bowled quite well on the WACA in the admittedly few times he's bowled there for SA.

    The fact we've won in Perth the last two years without a tweaker will also be at the forefront of the panel's thinking

    Johnson apparently thinks he can "be the leader" of the attack again. What a man.
