Old Mitchy boy certainly got us out of jail after sending them in. Tim Paine has to be stronger. When David Warner says he doesn’t want to bat Paine needs to say no.

Humble pie all 'round as Mitch Marsh rips through England

Oh boy. Just stop this now. I really hope he doesn’t read this.
He could be two tests away from going full Renshaw.

Is Marnus the best first drop since Ponting?

I’d bring in Ussie for Warner, Neser for Wade, bat Paine at 6 and rest Cummins for Pato. That’s plenty of bowling and no weaker batting (in my opinion) for a test we should be focused on ‘not losing’. Plus it has an eye to the summer

Australia retain Ashes in a thriller

Went 12 months without a single run

Australia in box seat to retain Ashes today

A little surprised England didn’t open with two nightwatchman?

That’s why they are playing in this test right?

Australia dominate as England fall apart at Old Trafford

In this day and age when professional sport is so cutthroat it amazes me that things like pride still get in the way of sensible selection decisions. Warner clearly is not suited to opening the batting in English conditions yet he is chosen to do so because the selectors, and himself I’m sure, see him as an “opener”. David Warner is certainly one of our best 6 batsman but he should be batting elsewhere in England. Being listed as 5 doesn’t make you a failure. It’s makes a sensible decision

Warner has lost the plot – and his off stump

Warner's struggles against Broad continue

I’d read the whole thread before commenting. That’s what I’d do.

The Ashes: England vs Australia, fourth Test preview, prediction

My original comment was tongue in cheek given Pierro’s love of Carey. I was merely confirming that. I don’t understand how on earth that relates to your recent tragedy but I’m certainly sorry for your loss

There was certainly tongue involved

Carey would be the difference between the sides if they picked him……

If we gave up our wickets in the same manner in which you give up an argument we’d be up 3 nil

Usman Khawaja axed for fourth Ashes Test

Based on what? Slapping around a white ball on some roads in the world cup?

Sangakkara in Hobart was something to behold. I imagine if he got them over the line it would have made this list

The five best Test innings versus Australia

I just wonder whether the Marsh consideration is a package deal thing with Starc. Have him take a big chunk of the bowling and use Starc in the Mitchell Johnson style of short explosive spells. It’s worth noting that I don’t support this theory

Mitch Marsh Ashes recall would be farcical

It was quite extraordinarily batting. Albeit allowed by Paine. The panic shown by Paine when they still needed 70 was odd to say the least. For a specialist captain it was very poor. Chuck in a rubbish review, botched runout, dropped catch, umpire howler and it was a dramatic last 20 minutes. Poor wicket though. Last session day 4 and it’s a deadset road. If the wicket broke up at all Stokes doesn’t swing that freely

Stokes revives Ashes with extraordinary match-winning ton

I imagine England simply drop Woakes for Anderson. Root doesn’t bowl him anyway

Archer can exploit Paine's short-ball issues

On Pattinson, I think it’s the opposite. The weather makes this test look like a stop start affair with maybe no result. Better to give him an extra long rest and get the last 3 out of him. If he played at Lords he would have certainly sat out the 3rd so why waste him on a rain affected test?

Lord's set to be a happy hunting ground again for Australia

What’s your point? That he didn’t bleed runs (4 an over against a county side) or that he did clean up the tail? (your mate Sam didn’t mention that either)

Lord's set to be a happy hunting ground again for Australia

I expect no changes for the Aussies but Starc and Hazelwood to both play the 3rd. Maybe for both Pattinson and Cummins. I reckon they may run Sids into the ground over the first 3 or 4 tests in order to get the best out of the other 4. For England, Ali poor form is the only thing that saved Bairstow. It seems his keeping is making his batting struggle and vise versa. They had a few options to fix this and seem to have taken the worst one. So much pressure on Archer. He will do well to get near the expectation. If he struggles and Leach gets carted it could get ugly. On an unrelated note, all the excitement of the first Ashes test and then what seems like an eternity before the second. Missed a trick with scheduling

Sounds like locker room talk

Great read.
Was expecting Todd Woodbridge to make an appearance but it’s a long series
