I am a huge fan of Cricket and Football (Soccer). I am a huge fan of Manchester United and I love my great state of Victoria in the cricket. I am a bit of a traditionalist and I love my Test cricket much more than my ODI and T20 cricket. If pushed the Stars are the team to go for. Happy reading!

Overall, I was too scared to look first innings
But it was 34
2nd: 19
3rd: 65
4th 78
So, when the pitches are dryer in England he does a bit better

Australia must drop David Warner

If anything, they could arrange to have some form of tour going on in the background, say, get the remaining players and some more to play Ireland or Scotland, even have a joint team with the English

Australia must drop David Warner

Wow Pete! We are on the same page pretty much.
I was going to turf Bancroft first, but I thought Warner needed the break more. Then I did consider dropping both and moving Khawaja up, but I am not sold on Khawaja’s form just at the minute. I think bringing Neser was a poor choice when we were always going to need batsmen.

The selectors are unafraid though. They dropped Patterson & Burns of the back of hundreds in tests, but conditions were very different.

Australia must drop David Warner

Wade scored a century last test and is currently the third top scorer in the series. That being said, there are some technical issues he has in England, but he has been one of the most prolific in the first class game last year

Australia must drop David Warner

Warner overall averages just over 30 in England, so he hasn’t been the most successful there

Australia must drop David Warner

Thanks Jeff, I think that the tank might be running a bit flat, so maybe it would be worthwhile sitting the tour game out for Warner and giving Harris a run. I did find it hard to come up with selection replacements, but hopefully he will come good again.

RE: Rory Burns, I think the editors might have changed my original message a little bit, but I would say I was trying to imply that he has probably been the one who has been the surprise package.

Great thoughts though!

Great Comment!

Why Jofra Archer won't be England's saviour

No doubt if he comes down under for the Ashes we might be in some trouble on bouncing decks

Why Jofra Archer won't be England's saviour

Touché my friend, Monty Python!

Why Jofra Archer won't be England's saviour

I agree 100% Kopa. No doubt he has skill and talent, but sometimes he is hyped too much

Why Jofra Archer won't be England's saviour

I worry that he may be sucked in by the money in shorter forms to not properly give 100% to the Test format. He is a bit of a globe trotter, and I hope a spell in Test will help mould his talent to be a bit more patient. I no doubt think his pace will blast out some of the weaker batsmen in the Aussie XI, but I also think he will struggle against Smith, and maybe Khawaja and Head, who have those gears and solid technique in defence.

Why Jofra Archer won't be England's saviour

I would still be very much sceptical about his abilities if he were an Australian pace merchant, mostly based on his success in limited overs, which makes me worry he will not be able to adapt to Test cricket for a few years yet, as he might be too erratic and impatient, unlike an Anderson (who does need to consider hanging up the boots) and Broad.

Why Jofra Archer won't be England's saviour

I predict Archer to flop

How Australia rediscovered their golden era mojo

Also, to add to Ryan, Siddle mainly gained selection from decimating the English County Comp. for 3 years, maybe 2

Australia needs to take the same XI to Lord's

I agree with these, all very good! Especially Archer.

Spoiler alert: The Ashes stories that will emerge

I am a bowler so I love seeing it, but I am a tad worried that short form cricket might pull the pendulum and drag it back to the middle a lot longer than it should normally

Why Mitchell Marsh cannot start the first Ashes Test

That is what has thrown me the most, I was expecting a seaming deck with some grass on it that might crumble later on

Pace stars in Ashes battle, while Bancroft firms as Aussie opener

Hopefully the pendulum will swing back towards some stronger batting, with some great matches again between bat and ball. I remember the 2006 Adelaide match as a true great, even if I was only 4 at the time.

Why Mitchell Marsh cannot start the first Ashes Test

Great Article! I agree 100% and it is important to recognise Labuschagne is a very good sweeper too

Why Labuschagne should be selected over Wade

Unfortunate indeed, but possibly the bowling ability has increased whilst short form cricket has eroded techniques of batsmen?

Why Mitchell Marsh cannot start the first Ashes Test

Which is not a bad number seeing as in the same time England have capped 692.

Why Mitchell Marsh cannot start the first Ashes Test

Would you agree that we put too much expectation on our players to be like the greats?

Why Mitchell Marsh cannot start the first Ashes Test

Then explain why we won a lot more than we lost with such selfish batting? And scoring runs certainly helps become great, but not the only criteria. I would like you to explain how my argument of success is invalid, because surely Australia should not have been so dominate and successful?
I am curious to know what your definition of great is?

Why Mitchell Marsh cannot start the first Ashes Test

Great Article Glenn, Exact same line-up as me

Sure things and surprises in my Aussie Ashes team
