swepson bowled pretty well in Sri Lanka bit agar is the one to assess in say an Aus A pre match there

How Australia can win its first Indian Test tour in five years

I agree some questionable performances abroad and Sri Lanka wasn’t good . I would definitely select him in Australia but they need to get smart in India and probably play Maxwell there . intra Aus v Aus A match in India and lead up match w
or two would be very wise to assess how hunt renshaw Pierson Inglis agar and phillipe play there. Pierson and phillipe had a few huge innings for australia A in Sri Lanka . head and head failed there which did not surprise me after what I’ve seen them do abroad as opposed to Australia

How Australia can win its first Indian Test tour in five years

Matt considering I can only remember one series win in India I think India are as always form favorites . Aus did well last series there though so they need to analyse what went right there and what went wrong and take an Australia A side there earlier with an intra match for me given the limited red ball cricket in last few years and Australian decks are simply not compatible so if warner and head make runs this summer they should not necessarily play in India . Sri Lanka wasn’t good for them

Like your side boes but I would still select Carey . the spin was low and and sharper in Sri Lanka and India may have two pace decks if it’s like the last series from rough memory ..Carey will make runs and inglis has not convinced me as much with bat lately although I know he has talent . Carey made some good runs in sri Lanka . I have seen better keepers but in Sri lanka Pierson made some huge totals for Australia A . Carey has played very well in uk at times all be it not at test level he had a huge world cup In uk and good red ball performances there . with ashes looming next year he stays for me . bare in mind dickwella was worse in sri Lanka keeping on home soil it was difficult there with low bounce in the last test . he has also had to sacrifice innings in Australia coming in late to go the long handle quickly too . Let’s see how he goes in aud this summer as Pierson inglis and phillipe are talented as is whiteman

excellent summary on head . in the UK he got caught and baited outside off stump at times slashing with wild shots . Sri Lanka was not great at all. I think he will make great runs in Australia but are we looking at warner mark 2 in that he goes well on Aussie decks and scores quickly like a flat track bully . I think he can develop abroad but not sure about sub continent if Maxwell is available . Problem is they will select him off bigger runs scored on Aussie decks . Escher was a fine artist and rowdy I’m reminded of the Melbourne exhibition I went to some five years ago

How Australia can win its first Indian Test tour in five years

bottom line warner averaged 8 over 5 tests in uk from memory last ashes. it was the worst opening average in a series for any country in the history of cricket. no way . he’s on the slide as well .farewell tour this summer ending scg for me and play hunt at mcg for the experience or perth

if the hip is that bad good with pain to get it done even at 63 the upside is you can. do all the physio whilst younger the downside as you say is you get a tad more limited to a few sports but if it’s significant daily pain then it’s time as it will only get worse .

Sri Lanka expected to give young guns a chance to turn the tables against Australia

your doing well to get through it all rowdy well done . not easy . be good to yourself . what age are you again to be getting hip done?

Sri Lanka expected to give young guns a chance to turn the tables against Australia

rowdy just checking in on you via an old thread hope your brother is now out of any pain and suffering swiftly if he passed and youve been hanging in there yourself . thoughts are with you mate

Sri Lanka expected to give young guns a chance to turn the tables against Australia

well not 100 percent sure boof wasnt involved but no evidence

Time for Warner's ban to end: Chappell

agree to an extent john but we do know warner was angry and wanted extract revenge after staircase feud. moreover we know he hatched the use of actual sandpaper instructing bancroft red-handed. warner was a senior VC and many would think you wouldn’t need to manage him at that age and level of experience . he should be grateful he was welcomed back to bat. there’s no mystery around warner being the instigator with full knowledge

Time for Warner's ban to end: Chappell

The ipl and new bbl was probably inevitable . even Australia big bash could have done a deal but won’t for now and that would horrify many cricket fans as it is effectively inspiring a monopoly . CA isn’t run very well and will always be reactive.
money talks and ipl through endless amounts of it around to gain dominance.

Latest IPL purchase makes the BBL look like the Small Bash

totally agree relum from stairwell gate to planning warner threw them all and the nation under a bus . of course smith was negligent with inaction to an extent he may trusted warner as vc not to do something so stupid and rushed to defend his players and then totally botched the press handling although CA marketing and heads didn’t act quick enough either . this is a bbl play and chappell would be wiser to be directly honest

Time for Warner's ban to end: Chappell

rowdy I think you summed it up there until we see further evidence from CA in future we know warner planned it and bought a rookie in to do it and was riled up by stairwell gate which most forget. that’s factual. we know smith reacted poorly all be it initially I believe he was trying to defend his players but was a bit brain dead and probably panicked and paid the price for being passive and then in effect he never outed warner or anyone else for example we don’t know if Lehmann was involved in general instructions. warner should be happy he’s just playing as he damaged alot although CA was totally over the top as media made a circus out of it and smith as warner cowered in background. not to mention scg should be his last test as an average of 8 last uk series doesn’t inspire and he shouldn’t go to uk . problem is he will likely a few big totals on Aussie soil this summer to mask big cracks in his game abroad

Time for Warner's ban to end: Chappell

I’ve suggested the same and give hunt or another a start in mcg and Perth. warner retires scg

Time for Warner's ban to end: Chappell

Athena intersting some valid comments and agree with alot of them but given the Aussie record in India with series wins being so few and far between and our demonstration of playing spin last week in Sri Lanka India will be favorites on home soil. I agree about many of your last series comments Australia did well and had chances to win the series but we’re well beaten in the last match from memory in northern India and it’s some time ago now ..Here is hoping they pull off the win though

What lessons will Australia learn from the tour of Sri Lanka?

Agree max that’s a stupid comment by McDonald going forward ..He has a clear bias for warner who was a chief culprit (yet again) in removal of paine in terms of the player feedback . I also think bailey has bias to warner as they played so much ODI together .

What lessons will Australia learn from the tour of Sri Lanka?

I think hunt , pucovski lead street and whiteman is close too

What lessons will Australia learn from the tour of Sri Lanka?

They need to learn no matter how well some players. at in Australia , when they hit spin wickets in India or Sri Lanka that the ones that haven’t performed previously in the subcontinent need to play In Aus A before they can get a start for aus on the spinning wickets abroad . the selectors probably won’t change if head or warner make runs In Aus and re select them which shows they learn. nothing of so

What lessons will Australia learn from the tour of Sri Lanka?

hey rowdy , head of course can knock up big runs in Australia but if they should declare now players like head need a stint in Australia A in India before first team selection in India . They may have to even watch him score two centuries or more this summer but the wickets in India and Sri Lanka may well as be like going from grass to clay in tennis , it’s a different ball game where the wickets are raging turners for certain players and the selectors need to know it’s not about not being allegiant it’s about being honest with players skillsets and form on particular foreign wickets , well really spinning ones

Why Glenn Maxwell isn't the answer for Australia's Asian woes

Matt intersting points and mist seem well spotted and valid.
I can’t help but think it’s what could have been with Maxwell and thats he’s unique talent that wasn’t well managed by cricket Australia let alone himself . 35 is tricky . perhaps though he can come in to play in India although Jeff rightly points out Mitchell marsh could be the right pick there . Moreover against Sri Lanka A Pierson and phillipe had some very impressive batting innings . There are a few options for heads position in India . I expect him and to a lesser extent warner to get runs in Australia which may take it all back to square one with the same selections and same conversations during the India series. If you were looking at agar v Maxwell it’s a different situation . In India I sometimes scratch my head over taking a risk to select someone like zampa for spin but gets hard with Lyon there . they can both bowl alot of overs containing one end and zampa knows the indian team and pitches inside out . The same old white to red ball debate comes in there though

Why Glenn Maxwell isn't the answer for Australia's Asian woes

I’m wondering if Pierson and phillppe are actually batting options after their efforts in Sri Lanka for aus A were better than non keeping batsmen. I’m not afraid to let one play as batsmen and keep Carey on his toes when they have just proven they can make more runs than the first team in a foreign pitch. There’s a small pool of four players as replacement openers (hunt , whiteman , pucovski and less so street . they should all play Aus A and shield asap to assess but hunt seems to be leading them for now )

Is David Warner on the final slide?

It’s all on ice now and the windies will allow warner and head to draw attention away from their infficiencies and failures abroad . head can make big runs on an Aussie pitch no doubt about that and warner was much the same until more recently but could get a bigger score or two this summer. we will be back to square one come February in india

Is David Warner on the final slide?

U the selectors need to think long and hard about who is selected for india and england next year no matter what runs are scored this summer on home pitches. warner should not be selected for foreign tours as the evidence is quite compelling since 2019 despite limited cricket

Why Glenn Maxwell isn't the answer for Australia's Asian woes

your article will unleash the Maxi fans in to rage . Maxwell has a lot of supporters . I think he could play well in India but then your suggestion about him batting too low does make some sense unless he replaces head and not playing red ball since 2019 is a concern as well . some suggest Mitch marsh is pretty suited abroad (not in aus as much ) and it has some merit in India and england
