    This. That Galle pitch was no where close to this in the ****iness.

    shane watson's displayed this summer that he got his injuries out of the way early, now he's fine. CA need to hire damien martyn to break everybody's thumbs in like june/july aka yearly england ODI period that nobody cares about

    or they need a thirteenth month between july and august or something which the breakage can occur

    Semi interesting days play today. Despite the wicket I'm nervous with Sanga still not out after surviving the dropped catch and a couple of run out opportunities.

    If Clarke misses out on the Boxing Day Test surely we'd make Huss captain. I know Watto is vice captain but I'm sure he'd acknowledge the fact that he needs to get his game in order first.

    I've been a fan of Coulter-Nile for a while now but with the replacement being for Hilfenhaus, Jackson Bird comes more into the reckoning.

    What if Siddle exhausts himself tomorrow and is out for Boxing day as well?

    well, to an extent. And there have been too many bland pitches in Australian Test cricket in recent years. But that shooter that Watson bowled to KS was the sort of delivery that the WACA pitch became notorious for. And unlike the WACA had the excuse of at times, it's not like the weather has been boiling hot there.

    Yeah, Hobart is just a ****ty pitch. Nothing for it, really.

    the biggest problem with this type of pitch imo is that it places too much significance on the toss.

    fwiw I thought last year's Hobart pitch was pretty good. Was consistently seaming throughout so all pace bowlers had a chance but if you had the right attitude as Warner did you could prosper. Only downside was that it negated any real need for a spinner (Vettori getting injured probably was decisive in the end).
