    Lets win the series eh.
    Yup.

    Yes he was awesome I agree, just not my MOTM. Sure there was pressure, but it was a perfect situation when he came in. I would imagine any number of players would love coming in at that situation. IMO RG Sharma played a much more important and crucial role. When you look at all the batting performances, they were all pretty good. It was hard to get a "real" wicket for the bowlers from both teams.

    No problem with you saying Rohit should be motm, was only questioning the point re: Kohli not being under pressure.

    Gee Australia is completely screwed if we happen to get an injury. By the sound of things Ferguson, Henriques and Coulter-Nile are SO far behind our current XI.

    I like to see changes during ODIs. I know all 3 don't have to happen next match but I would disappointed if we don't make any.

    Over 0.2: Putland to Nevill, OUT, no run, full ball swings in late to crash into his pads. Nevill is almost falling over trying to get bat on it but can't. Huge shout for LBW and Umpire Martell eventually raises the finger! P.Nevill - lbw b:Putland 0 (1 ball, 1 minute).

    How do you think? Voges is far better than Ferguson. He disagrees massively, massively that Henriques can bowl well in these conditons and he also thinks NCN isn't as good as a guy like McKay who he gets great pleasure seeing getting smashed around because he doesn't rate him at all. Obviously McKay's figures/career record is above Prince's estimation of him.

    is not the same as

    Whether he thinks those guys are terrible is neither here nor there, the point is that they aren't as good as the incumbents and hence shouldn't be picked.

    That's might be your point, but it isn't necessarily correct. You think they aren't as good as the incumbents again which makes it appear as though the current XI are the chosen ones and are producing good cricket as a team that couldn't be emulated with a change or two. The bowling last night was woeful, I don't think it necessarily hurts our team giving NCN or Henriques (or both) a game to see if they can go for less than 6 runs an over. If they come in, it doesn't mean we aren't trying to win the series and it doesn't mean the players out have their cards marked never to play for Australia again or anything.

    If Australia are dropping anyone for Henriques it's Faulkner. Are you down for that?

    I wouldn't mind if Faulkner was omitted from the 3rd ODI with Henriques in his place.

    ftr i think Henriques is an under rated white ball bowler and think he would do well in this series, but having said that from what i've seen of the indian innings theres no way he wouldve made a difference last night
