    Yeah that is a seriously bad piece. It's not just poorly put across or an opinion I disagree with; it genuinely shows great ignorance of Australian cricket.

    Could've swore I mentioned Maxwell in there.

    no-one who pays attention to NSW is surprised by this
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Not to mention of teams, squads, the mental side of the game, technique, cricket in general, etc.

    classic example of someone who only looks at stats, never bothering to actually watch the up and coming state players they so vocally advocate and then just roll with the opinion of the bogan australian cricket fans who think t20 is a good gauge of someones ability as a test cricketer

    Its not like he is a top order batsman, he bats lower down the order and its highly unlikely that you would be scoring too many hundreds while batting that low.

    I already have money on the Indian win pregame at 2.1.

    I'd load up further but for the fact that Clarke is due for the second innings now considering he is in god mode.

    I actually consider that a positive day for Australia. Clarke didnt contribute and they still managed to bat out the day. Turn some of those 0's into 20 odds and you've got a competitive total.

    Good knock from Smith, against spin he has always been pretty good. Now the challenge is to stretch this total as much as possible, would be nice if the last three guys can hang in with Smith to give him chance of scoring his maiden test hundred.

    The pitch is dusting up so if Doherty and Lyon bowl well in tandem then they might cause a few problems. Australia are now absolutely in a position where they have nothing to lose, so hopefully the guys can come out and play with a bit more freedom and see how it goes.

    104 overs in the day. If that continues (probably unlikely) we only lose 34 overs from a full test match. Still every chance of a result.

    The guy who wrote it watches every Victorian game for the Hun.

    It's not that he doesn't watch, he just doesn't "get" it.
