I enjoyed Maxwell in the team, not getting one single home test was a joke. But from the ashes we have Marnus Labuschagne. He is the future.

Glenn Maxwell's Test career cruelled by World Cup flop

NSW didn’t dominate as they should have; Queensland came back and scored two late tries to tie it up. The game came down the last 30 seconds and and poor decision not to kick either a field goal or a better kick.

The Maroons had the passion but not the cattle

Well I’m not going to be bothered by shirt numbers and names. Can’t wait to see the 49 of Steve Smith hit England around in the 2019 Specsavers Ashes Series.

Test match shirts: A game of letters and numbers

And your argument isn’t any more facile? Previous unrelated changes are fine (due to either chronology and/or level of interest). Just don’t change things from now? Right.

Test match shirts: A game of letters and numbers

Firstly, evolving is evolving, there is no devolution technically.
How did any change improve test cricket?
If adding names and numbers to shirts is going to put you off, then just watch youtube clips of test’s past.
P.S here’s some more changes to test cricket.
Ruled our underarm deliveries
Third umpire into DRS
covered pitches
day/night tests
you’re argument makes no sense, unless you are equally upset about those changes?
So test cricket should go back to 4 ball overs, on uncovered pitches with rest days on a Sunday? Get a grip.

What?

Test match shirts: A game of letters and numbers

what tradition is test cricket upholding?

4 ball overs? No.
8 ball overs? No.
Limitless tests? No.
Rest days? No.

Test cricket believe it or not has evolved. This is nothing new.

right up there with the Australian men’s teams efforts of 60 and 47.

I’m not sure you have? The New Testament is love and forgiveness, the Old Testament, is obey or be punished. It’s as if it was written by multiple sources over such an extended timframe that’s a human construct.

The thing no one wants to say about Israel Folau

A proper Bible study?

Which one is proper? Roman Catholic, Protestant, Lutheran, Jehovah’s Witness, Church of Latter Day Saints, Prebertyean, Episcopalian?

The thing no one wants to say about Israel Folau

I feel like the approach taken in 2015 by the top teams, to build a platform and then explode in the last twenty overs (i.e. play a T20), is the most aggressive we can expect in real cricket. I just don’t believe that a team can go hard for 50 overs, game after game, on proper wickets and against decent bowling.

I don’t disagree. The hype was all who’s scoring 500 first. Then the English weather happened, the pitches are slower maybe a bit lower, and our style is winning games. Going against form and expectation.

It almost feels wrong to say, because we have been winning. But it feels like Maxwell is the only one trying to play 2019 style ODI, i.e. 10+ an over from the 40th. Everyone else is content going run a ball till the last 5 overs. Not that it has mattered too much.

If England had made roads, I’m not sure this would work, but thanks the dam weather and multiple uses of the same ground these low scoring games have been to our favour (oddly).

Anyway, CA can lock the trophy away for another 4 years.

The Ashes are ours!

Archer is hopeless, Root is horribly out of form. Stokes couldn’t punch his way out of paper bag.

Cricket’s coming home.

the latter, it’s always the latter.

Also, this gives the winner some impetus for the Ashes; they’d be entering the series effectively up 1-0 before the first test. Can’t wait.

If you say so.

Why I donated to Israel Folau - and why I will again

I’m often astounded how often the ball goes straight to short fine leg and the batsmen charge through and make it in those circumstances.

I’m not, cause it shifts the dynamic from the runners to the fielder. They both stopped, allowing a few seconds the gather steady aim and throw. If they kept running, all of a sudden the fielder now has to make all those actions happen a little bit faster. That leads to errors. All the runners’ need is an extra second and they are home.

It wasn’t an inside edge, it was a deliberate shot through the legs.

@ Paul you’re judging the outcome of an event for another. They came to halt mid pitch, as Khawaja said no, giving time for the fielder to steady and throw. If they kept running a different outcome could also be expected.

Compare to Carey and Stonis who would take off for the quick singles. If it was anyone but Khawaja, it was a single.

they had time to complete the run, they met at halfway. In Over 47, that’s a run.

The fact they stopped, it gave old mate a bit of time to aim. If they continued, it puts that pressure on the fielder.

So it seems, we sent what should have been the bulk of the 2019 squad on the A Tour, to get prepped for the 2023 World Cup.

No, I’d say Maxwell has by and large done his job.

No one else in the current set up can score from ball 1 like he does.
