    *Official* West Indies Tour of England, JULY 9th to 25th, 2024-- 3 TEST MATCHES

    Feels like the listless spell Woakes bowled post-lunch was a bit of a turning point. It just enabled the Windies batsmen to ease themselves in from a precarious lunch position and they took full advantage.

    *Official* West Indies Tour of England, JULY 9th to 25th, 2024-- 3 TEST MATCHES

    Never was the same after he stood out of the side for a couple of years. A shame as during the mid-10s he looked like being the Windies best bat for years to come.

    *Official* West Indies Tour of England, JULY 9th to 25th, 2024-- 3 TEST MATCHES

    Looked in trouble from opening ball of that over and how jittery he looked against that first short ball.

    *Official* West Indies Tour of England, JULY 9th to 25th, 2024-- 3 TEST MATCHES

    Wonder if they'll have to bring in a rule limiting how many times a fielding side can ask to have the ball changed during an innings? Gradually creeped in to the game so it's now a standard tactic.

    *Official* West Indies Tour of England, JULY 9th to 25th, 2024-- 3 TEST MATCHES

    Can only think he was mentally shaken up by Wood's pace as those were two horrible shots in a row out of nowhere.

    *Official* West Indies Tour of England, JULY 9th to 25th, 2024-- 3 TEST MATCHES

    I think because visually it gave the impression of going down legside with how McKenzie played it. It's a bit like how shooters are more likely to be given out live because it looks so comprehensive even if it was missing the stumps.

    Great lower order batting teams in history?

    Australia's 7 to 11 on the final Test of their 1992 Sri Lanka tour was one of their strongest: Greg Matthews Ian Healy Craig McDermott (should've been 11) Shane Warne Tony Dodemaide Just as well they had a strong tail to save the match as none of Australia's top 5 reached 25 in either innings!

    Great lower order batting teams in history?

    Australia's 7 to11 for the one-off Bicentennial Test against England in 1988 was pretty strong. Peter Sleep (FC 34, Tests 24) Greg Dyer (FC 28, Tests 21) Peter Taylor (FC 30, Tests 26) Tony Dodemaide (FC 28, Tests 22) Craig McDermott (FC 16, Tests 12). *Also, No. 5 Mike Veletta that match had...

    *Official* West Indies Tour of England, JULY 9th to 25th, 2024-- 3 TEST MATCHES

    Not really that surprising. If it wasn't for that Da Silva/Hodge partnership in 2st innings in Brisbane, they would've been dismissed sub-200 in all 4 innings.

    Worst bowler to average lower than 30? (qualification: 50 Test wickets)

    Bollinger really seemed to pay the price for that Adelaide Ashes Test and how his fitness wasn't apparently up to standard. Because apart from his debut Test the rest of his Test career was impressive; but he must've really disappointed those of influence in Adelaide as he was never in the...

    *Official* Australia tour of New Zealand Feb-Mar 2024

    Re: NZ's long-term Test record against Australia, they did pretty well from 1997 to 2002 under Fleming. Australia were clearly the better side in that period but they showed enough fight and some inventive captaincy to be competitive mostly. It really went downhill from the 04/05 Oz tour...

    *Official* Australia tour of New Zealand Feb-Mar 2024

    Quite startling how much better Oz are in Test series in Australia compared with most countries. Since their last series win in NZ in 2016 until today they'd only won one other away series - Pakistan 2022. Five consecutive Test series wins in NZ; not sure Australia have done that in any other...

    *Official* Australia tour of New Zealand Feb-Mar 2024

    So much for that theory! I guess we'll see if the middle order can counter-attack successfully. It's their only hope now.

    Great bowling from Cummins again today, always lifts his game on flat tracks like this.

    *Official* Australia tour of New Zealand Feb-Mar 2024

    Bulk of runs have to come from Top 4; middle order not in great form and showed as recently as Brisbane how vulnerable they are in this situation.

    *Official* Australia tour of New Zealand Feb-Mar 2024

    Australia really should've buried this match with the bat today but some sloppy batting really let them down. That Head/Marsh/Carey middle order doesn't work for me; too flashy and high-risk and not well suited to when someone like Labuschagne is in for the long haul and needs support. The...

    Carey's list of inept dismissals growing into quite a long one.

    Crazy review, he was a mile down the pitch amongst other things.

    Shocker of a review, had nothing go for it.

    *Official* England in India 2023/24 #CryMoreTour

    Serious hubris from Stokes to review that; maybe as a group they're mentally fried at the end of this disappointing series.
