I’d be picking Clarrie Grimmett if it was wickets per test.

Australia should not fight Jofra Archer with fire

Maybe Bert Oldfield will be reprised?

After stoking Archer’s Ire n Fire???

Crows, the Tale of Two Rangers.

1) We haven’t relied on the Texas Ranger the whole year. Lawlessness abounds. He is there in molecules only.

2) The Sloane Ranger can’t do it all by himself despite the roost he’s given it. In fact l reckon if we had 17 others putting in 50% of what Sloane does we’d win the flag.

There is function, there is no form, there is no focus.

Which of the contenders for eighth place has the best hope for the future?

There’s a certain edginess to your work.

Labuschagne and Head give cause for optimism

Ok guys you win. I am being won over. Curmudgeonly schmuck that I am.

England's captain is the Root of their problems

The Double Bays? Tiger Blues?

Which South Australian club coach is under more pressure?

Critical to good captaincy is standing at 1st slip for the entire (bowling) innings. He gets the constant feed from the wicky, does not have to worry, as a non-bowler, who is next and marshalls the bowlers thru their overs. They also see where runs can be staunched and fielder placements to effect catching.

Captain-bowlers generally underbowl themselves. I tend to think wicketkeepers captaining is a hard gig. Also bowlers generally don’t like being advised by bowler-captains. Whereas a batsmen-captain can say his piece and leave it at that.

Yet I feel we only have one bowler to make a World XI; Lyon. I know people rate Cummins I just don’t feel as disposed to him.

If we have 4 batsmen in the top 25 World stocks are low.

Maybe the spelling mistake was “England is going too loose this Series for sure”?

I didn’t think Atherton and Trescothick were English. I thought this because they have both been found to be cheaters. And as we all know the English don’t cheat.

Controversial catch leaves Marnus Labuschagne absolutely filthy

Apart from living with himself knowing that the ball touched the ground first. What sort of cricketer doesn’t know if he’s taken the ball clean or not.
And, no, I would’ve called it the same if it had happened to an Aussie. It took me a long time to warm to Steve Waugh because early in his test career he claimed a catch that wasn’t.

Roots are the lowest.

It was good that he wore it though. That was a good innings

Who do you suggest? This has been a very trying series so far. I think the elite honesty and some yogi fixing motor cycles ain’t the way to go. Elite honesty, pfft, what a load processed chicken diet!

Paine has to front up while behind the scenes everyone is told to be sickeningly nice. I think this is part of why Warner has been off the boil. Why Lyon didn’t appeal deserved wickets. I sometimes wished Warner had sm.ash.ed de Kok, he would’ve got a ban, but the air would’ve been cleared.

On another point…what’s happened to reverse swing? It seams (pun intended) it has disappeared

England's captain is the Root of their problems

The fish rots at the head. Pyke needs to go. And a clean out of support staff. Maybe the management needs looking at. It’sa shame that one of the heartlands of footy is at such a low ebb. Get rid of Pyke now. Put in Bassett as head coach.
Collective Minds was a disaster. But its part of the overall MO of Pyke. 3 months ago we could’ve secured top 4 but there is something cankered in the team psyche.

I still think Chappelli is needed to oversee the rebuilding at the Crows.

The SANFL stuffed this up by vetoing Port’s entry to the AFL back in 1990. Which would’ve then seen Norwood in as the 2nd SA team. A rivalry that is is old as any in Victoria. Instead we have manufactured team.

It’s hard row being a native of Australia’s most different state.

Which South Australian club coach is under more pressure?

Pyke is not a good coach! I’ve seen more animation from an oily sponge.

Which South Australian club coach is under more pressure?

Carey and Wade are better batsmen / keepers but Paine is our best wicketkeeper. Not everyone is Gilchrist. Like Lyon is our best spinner but Warne he ain’t.

And whilst our team says the booing is no problem I think you’d have to be superhuman to not have been affected as individuals or the team as a whole.

Warner and Khawaja face make or break Ashes Test

I’m looking forward to Smith not playing. I’d like to see us man up, show up and go two up.

They’re Bordering on greatness!

As much it pains me to say but the Orange Ruffy is one of the few Victorians I like.

'Like shooting Bambi': Clarko leaves door open for Roughead to keep his spot

Wickys, in tests, should be picked on the keeping prowess. Still his batting is handy even if he hasn’t scored centuries.
—-
We are at low stocks and needed a mature safe pair of hands, excuse the pun, and he is the best bet. I reckon only Smith and Lyon would make a World XI.

I hope someone emerges but until then he’s the guy.

Warner and Khawaja face make or break Ashes Test

He did have incredibly bad luck first up on his first coming. I know he’s caretaker till next year. I realise he’s no Gilly, Healy or Haddin. However lets write him up.

Warner and Khawaja face make or break Ashes Test

He is a good keeper and probably at an age where his batting is on the wane.

Warner and Khawaja face make or break Ashes Test

The best thing about Smith not playing, from a team perspective, is that they now have to rally around their absent talisman.

Paine has one insurmountable virtue. He is the only person who can take the team thru this time with the necessary gravitas. He would’ve been our wicky over 10 years ago had not injury crueled him. I think we should back him.
