    We already tried that; it didn't work out very well and he stepped down to coach WA anyway to save us the hassle of sacking him.

    Good to see him join up to CW anyway; welcome Justin.

    I've found the same when travelling there, the people in the south are considerably friendlier.

    Pattinson looking at sideline again

    Was about to post something similar under the heading of selection problems

    This guy is potentially a future ATG but he is a young man whose body is still developing

    Irrespective of how important the game is, I would be happy to see him sit it out as no-one will care in 6 months, 12 months or 10 years so long as he is bowling

    Doherty bowls faster than Lyon, doesn't he? If the pitch is a real crumbler, then it might be worth going with him. The English spinners, especially Panesar, were successful because they were bowling a fair bit quicker than Ashwin and certainly Ojha. Besides, can't get much worse than Lyon.

    Lol.

    Isn't the point to bowl more and to get into rhythem and gain match fitness.

    What's up with the latest Aussie pacers? All of them are breaking down constantly. Maybe we need to export some from Pak for them like our spinners.

    yeah.. I was actually telling Benchy coz he was making it seem as if it was a partisan crowd or something. I saw the standing ovation for Clarke when he got his 100, so the crowd was as sporting as any you can expect..


    But I still do think crowds across the country have gotten less sporting since IPL.. I just think they have grown too impatient to actually laud the opposition's good cricket in any game..

    lol.. the sarcasm aside, even if it is being prepared to instructions, the local weather will/can still spoil their best plans.. So it will be interesting to see how the wicket turns up.

    It need not be, for good seamers to have an impact, esp. the ones who can bowl at real pace.. Dry pitches can work both ways, as Australia showed us in 2004 esp. when the Indian batting itself is in dodgy form..

    Unless you believe WW, the best young fast bowlers in the world are Cummins, Pattinson, and Starc (not to mention Richardson who has just led Australia A to a 7-0 victory over England A)

    All are Australian

    All are kids

    All need rest between matches as they have all proven themselves to be injury prone

    No-one will remember this series in 12 months

    The cricket world will remember their names for a long time if they are allowed to develop naturally

    I think it applies less to the young blokes. Pattinson had next to no work before this test and bowled really well.

    The interesting one to come out of the first test was Siddle. He's older and told CA he didn't want to play after the SL tests because that was the best regime for him. He looked massively under done.
