    It doesnt suggest good things about our batters being able to deal with swing but in a test match you can afford to be more cautious in your shot selection than you generally are in a 1 dayer. Got to think Clarke and Hughes would have player different shots in a test to those deliveries. There were some top deliveries though.

    Well I've seen Clarke get out in the same manner in tests quite a few times tbh.

    I didn't get to watch a single ball of yesterday's match but just saw the news wrap now - With Bailey's LBW where was the ball hitting? It looked like it pitched outside off and could have been clipping the top of the bails or going over. Am I right in thinking that if he had of played a shot it would have been not out as it pitched outside off?

    Would've smashed into middle and off. Hit well outside the line, though.

    Thanks, so he should have played a shot. George will learn from this.

    Yeah look that ball swung a mile. I can forgive him for leaving a delivery on that line given it was his first nut.

    Yeah but by the same token he'd be well aware of what Kula's MO is. It's just interesting that it seems these days any time there's a hint of movement around, the Aussie bats don't just struggle but don't even look like they know how to keep it out. Good spell by SL's bowling unit but I doubt I doubt their opposition is unaware that swing bowling is a big problem for this batting unit.

    The scorecard would suggest unplayable bowling and it just wasn't so.

    There's still a part of you that first ball sees it so wide, and habit takes over.

    Yeah indeed. If it was, say, tenth ball and he'd had a chance to have a look what the ball was doing, then that'd be a different matter but on the first nut, I'd just say "well played" to the bowler and move on.

    Jackson Bird called up as cover. Cover for who?

    Or maybe they're going to bat Johnson at #7 again, because obviously we have enough batting at 1-6

    Bird may be the 19th ODI player in 4 games....

    Was he not watching the game though? Even if he'd not done much homework on the bowler before the game, surely see Hughes and especially Hussey get out the way they did should've been making him think "No tight leaves early". More than anything it was just dumb cricket IMO, first ball or not.
