    Can people now see the value in having Starc in the line up? Pattinson, Bird, Harris and Siddle are all similar bowlers, so given generally you want to go with a 3 man pace attack plus Watson and a spinner, you pick the best two of those four (which is Pattinson and Bird/Harris if fit) + Starc who provides the variety in the attack, who can go for runs if the ball isn't swinging, but can take bags if it does swing.

    Enjoyable day's cricket.

    **** me that last partnership was funny.
    Warner seemed particularly eager to interact with the crowd, I noticed. At one point seemed to almost be laughing at them always chanting his name. They only got the odd wave out of Hussey (who ofc got the biggest cheer of the day by a mile when he came on to bowl)
    + time's fickle card game ~ with you and i +


    get ready for a broken ****in' arm

    How can we trust that man in an Ashes series??

    That's a smashing shirt Peter.

    Benchy, I've been pro Starc all summer and agree with your assessment apart from obviously we rate Siddle differently. I agree that Pattinson is a special talent and Bird is looking the goods so at some point you might be right in the fact that Pattinson Bird and Starc would be a killer combination, but currently Siddle is a very important member in the XI and deserves a spot in the bowling attack ahead of everyone else.

    Reckon Bird's good form may leave his Tassie teammate Hilfenhaus stranded on 99 Test wickets.

    I don't see how you can rate Siddle better than a fully fit Pattinson and/or Harris.

    Bird maybe because he's not proven.
