    *Official* Australia vs South Africa -2022/3

    Australia's chance of winning in hindsight probably went when Cummins' great spell late on the 4th day ended with only 2 wickets instead of 4-5 like it could've. If they'd cleaned up South Africa's tail on the 4th evening, couldn't see SA's incredibly brittle Top 6 surviving the pressure of...

    *Official* Australia vs South Africa -2022/3

    Elgar apparently averaged less this series than Warner did in the 2019 Ashes - quite an achievement! Hard to think of a more abject display by a touring Test captain to Australia in recent decades. Probably have to go back to Jimmy Adams on 00/01 tour or Jeff Crowe in 87/88.

    *Official* Australia vs South Africa -2022/3

    Going back to the 1980s even when it was rarely a New Years Test the Sydney Tests were impacted by weather. The 83/84 Test v Pakistan had most of Day 1 washed out. The 1985/86 Test v NZ had roughly a session washed out on Day 4. The 1988 Bicentennial Test was impacted by bad light on Day 4...

    *Official* Australia vs South Africa -2022/3

    In the post-WSC, this surely has been the season with the weakest standard of batting to tour Australia. I always thought it was the West Indies of 2000/01 that was the worst but on paper at least they were clearly more talented than the dire WI/SA batting lineups of this season.

    Australia yet to concede 300 in an innings in the 6 Tests that Scott Boland has played in.

    Opinion of David Warner

    There's a 2017 Cricinfo article which states that he and Ed Cowan are both conservative in their political views.

    *Official* Australia vs South Africa -2022/3

    The narrative about this pitch was largely set by Australia's mini-chase. If they'd chased it 1 wicket at most down or not allowed SA's 10th wicket to even set a target, I think the focus would've been more on SA's batting than the pitch. As it was, that last innings bowling performance by SA...

    Looking forward to Warner getting a swift 10 not out being heralded as proof that he looks back I'm form.

    Australia on track to bowl an opposition out sub-100 for the 3rd time in the 5 Tests Boland has played.

    *Official* Australia vs South Africa -2022/3

    Hazlewood must be kicking himself to get injured when he did; could've taken 30 wickets at 5 this summer against these dismal batting line-ups.

    If it ends today will Ch 7 launch legal proceedings about lost revenue because the pitch was too bowler-friendly?

    *Official* Australia vs South Africa -2022/3

    Wasn't convinced by Travis Head's run glut at home over the past couple of years largely because didn't rate the opposition... but that innings today was of highest class. Rarely get a better example of quality counter-attacking in a difficult situation by a middle-order player than that innings.

    *Official* Australia vs West Indies - Frank Worrell Trophy 2022

    From a Test cricket perspective, only positive was the excellent crowds that came out for this match. Adelaide has probably the best Test match going culture in the country. But as a Test series this was a non-event. Windies almost as bad as they were in 15/16. Depressing that they're...

    *Official* Australia vs West Indies - Frank Worrell Trophy 2022

    Not a shock at all but still hard to fathom against such a weak batting lineup. The Yasir Shah century match was mentioned above and that was one match where they did enforce the follow-on; they probably had less justification for enforcing it on that occasion.

    *Official* Australia vs West Indies - Frank Worrell Trophy 2022

    Hard to fathom the reasoning for not enforcing the follow-on, especially when you have a genuine 5th bowler. Probably a tacit commercial decision as much as anything.

    *Official* Australia vs West Indies - Frank Worrell Trophy 2022

    The West Indies have barely won a Test tour away from home for the past 25 years and on the majority of them have been non-conpetitive. Is this any real surprise?

    *Official* Australia vs West Indies - Frank Worrell Trophy 2022

    Looks like Oz will enforce the follow-on if the short pacemen spells and Lyon bowling from one end are to go by. Fair chance it will end tonight if that occurs.

    Ha! 2 deliveries later and he gets a wicket.

    Overbowled Lyon here, especially with the bowling options Australia has.

    6 runs off the last 6 overs; an unexpectedly drab end to that session.
