Just thinking could have done more to the left hander in that Sydney test . big of rough by his front foot from that Randwick end .

The death of the leg spinner

both leggies was the similarities I was drawing 2nd and 3rd on the all time test wicket taker

The death of the leg spinner

Could provide more on a 5th day wicket or older wickets , plenty of 5th day tests still around .

The death of the leg spinner

The toss was won and bat on both surfaces hoping for 5th day or 4th day help , nothing of the sort

Australia is far from pitch perfect

Yeah couldn’t agree any more, He’s just bangs it in and goes back and does it all day .

Australia is far from pitch perfect

Made some of the Aussie bats look poor especially with Washington and Thakur’s innings

Very True , Just not the usual wear and tear we are use to seeing on Australian surfaces

Australia is far from pitch perfect

More on the mentality of the players

Are the bad-boy Aussies making an unwelcome return?

Pant is in for his batting shown in that second innings plenty of promise .

Are the bad-boy Aussies making an unwelcome return?

Yeah poor mentality would love to see a new era of Australian cricket . Hard fought but fair

Are the bad-boy Aussies making an unwelcome return?

Personal attacks when decision don’t go their way . Loved the no frills performance after the ball tampering saga . Almost sober feel no swearing or abuse

Are the bad-boy Aussies making an unwelcome return?

Good call , a captain should be leading by example – Kane Williamson is the prime example great cricketer and captain no surprise their number 1

Frustration loomed large could and will happen again to push the limit

Are the bad-boy Aussies making an unwelcome return?

completely agree continues to push the boundaries .

Are the bad-boy Aussies making an unwelcome return?

Marking centre in a break is a very rare in the test cricket I’ve watched over the past 15 years

Are the bad-boy Aussies making an unwelcome return?

Crossed a line from banter to personal attacks.

Are the bad-boy Aussies making an unwelcome return?

Going from another angle a Craig Bellamy from the Melbourne Storm would whip that side into form real quick .

It paid off especially in that second innings on both fronts . But geez Pant knock proves that a batting keeper can change the course of a game or save one in Pant’s case

The versatile wicket-keeper

Seems like the likes of Ms Dhoni would have inspired a new generation of youth keepers coming through , Next tour don’t be surprised if we see a fresh new face 😊

The versatile wicket-keeper

Luckily he made runs in that second innings, might have made me look a bit red faced if he didn’t haha 😛

The versatile wicket-keeper

Yeah don’t think it’s animal cruelty as yet , but if international horses continue to die that is more than cruel .

The race that breaks the nation

Creatures of Habit ?

The race that breaks the nation

Yeah agreed the track doesn’t suit an international raider – there are tougher regimes that include the horse running up hill to build muscle obviously doesn’t compensate for the struggles of the race

The race that breaks the nation

The major connection was the international raider on wetter tracks and softer compared to Australian harder tracks with added weight might be too much

The race that breaks the nation

His head will not grow heavy .
