nick agree with you on warner head. my other concern is Cummins as captain again let him concentrate on bowling but half the audience won’t let smith captain despite his wicket antics he’s still best candidate. cracks will be covered up in aus though this summer as they will likely beat windies and boks and then struggle against india picking same team

glad to see all getting in board over warner they won’t drop him though . they love carrot top for his ticket sales. problem is hell get some Aussie pitch runs then repeat poor batting in india

swepo just hasnt had the turning pitches he needs. they need to get specific for each venue and rotate said it for years

rowdy told you often I know you don’t like it as much make smith captain until next candidate ready

been saying it about warner since uk ashes. only good for a few test pitches in aus now

best solution make smith captain again for a few years let Cummins concentrate bowling . said it all along but 50 percent won’t have it . then we lose. leg spinners not used enough. labs ,smith not used and swepson not used enough

trickiest wicket for spinning only missed one stumping really other two very hard . dickwella was worse on his home pitch. general your back it took that test to get you talking again . know you needed some time to get over the loss of your idol . today our first loss since. how is Tassie treating you? should warner and head play abroad again ! agree on the poor review always said Cummins better just bowling . think you have to look at head and warner performance more though .

this is gold. hilarious

Stranger than fiction: Fake cricket league set up to fool Russian punters

don’t know Jeff 194 is alot of runs . 2ay more than any other bowler Lyon got hammered and we lost and it was on a Sri Lankan wicket where luo. was the worst frontline spinner statistically

we were beaten like dogs in a Nagpur heatwave in a leopard risked campfire (which I’ve lived through once when young). we have no defence

I noted a few dropped catches and drs would have had one of starcs out . I’m still getting over it , the fact is the whole team pretty bad outside of smith and labs first innings and starc and swepson bowling in particular .

geez trial by media with that comment about dating him . we don’t know him by all accounts he’s very loving and generous and great with kids off court. check out his nk foundation too. he’s not entirely what you think despite he’d had some mental issues and poor moments in his youth in particular

John watch the post match confs on wimbdlon site . he’s fine for most of it and actually gracious enough then the rag trades like daily express goad him with a question about red shoes he wears after the match . they ask him about allegations un proven with his ex partner . it was non stop at him if you actually saw it all . more pressure than any normal player gets and out of place

they have a biased to Lyon at times when they shouldn’t although he’s generally very good on the bouncy Aussie wickets they need to be careful with him overseas or at least rotate him more. they bowled him too much fifth day of lord’s In ashes uk 2019 and he got clobbered and it nearly cost us the match being sent In earlier and aus was nearly bowled out . Why labs and smith weren’t bowled more was beyond me and swepson as well

Lyon 2 for 194 just didn’t measure up Jeff . swepson and starc pick of the bowlers . I’ve advocated swepo for a long time was he bowled enough was smith or labs bowled enough . I’ve said it for years . to much over bowling of Lyon and sometimes he needs rotation

he’s had his moments where he’s gone to far . no worse than McEnroe at his worst he called the chair umpires mother expletives I shall not repeat and he certainly didn’t blast tennis balls in to crowd like Tsistipas or smash balls at tsitispas directly like tsisitpas did at him. not sure many have watched all the matches In this wimbldon . I did and the media goaded him non stop it was a bit comical In this tournament

Jeff usually two of the tests In India are raging turners the other two are more pace bowling orientated until last day or two . I suspect Carey will travel to India and keep unless he has an awful summer on home soil which shouldn’t be hard . this test has really shown Australia’s issues yet again. warner and head will bat well on Aussie wickets but does that mean they go to India . the bowling got hammered by Sri Lanka and the batting crumbled . Sri Lanka is not always easy but we got well beaten

'Well and truly in this game': Aussies still believe as Chandimal century, missed chances have Sri Lanka on top

intersting debate Jeff , most agree dickwella performed worse than Carey and most media said two of the stumpings were difficult. I saw one that should have been taken but you can probably forgive one on foreign pitch . the other kept very very low and the initial one against chandimal most said was simply extremely difficult . Will this matter back on most other wickets now ? time will tell Carey has done very well on Aussie wickets . so let’s assess Aus and India and england tests . if he is making too many errors there I’ll definitely support the search for a new keeper although I think his batting holds up well outside of his decision to reverse sweep at times . warner and head remain the biggest problem on these foreign pitches right now

you lost out some fantastic matches . nk was sensational through out tournament with his tennis against tsitispas and garin and djokovic amazing at times too. wasn’t as bad as media have made out or social media who probably didn’t watch the whole matches .

'You'll be back': Djokovic ends Nick's run after Aussie's inevitable meltdown, but praises 'phenomenal' foe

think your harsh on him , he’s a bit mental at times but just was talking to his own team . Djokovic is a machine and goat and second best on grass all time really so no did himself a great service today slightly copping some nerves in key moments . he was humble in defeat and lead up before it . joker is no saint either . nk has been a bell end in past but lit up this wimbldon . see how he goes from here

John bit of a rant there kyriogs was great today maybe not quite at his best and some nerves came in but he behaved well and was gracious in defeat . Djoker hasn’t always been a role model of decency . Think kyriogs has been pretty amazing most of the tournament despite some chair and lineman rants against tistipas who behaved even worse , the rest has been flared up by media and pitch fork arm chair crowd. kyriogs pretty humble in his pressers and faced a few fierce opponents . to lose to the goat is no shame and he wasnt far off that fifth. great effort . only 4 players the big four have won it in 20 years so no shame to lose to the second greatest grass courter of all time today pushing him all the way, just a few genuine nerves in set 2 and 3 I brief moments . by all accounts he hadn’t slept much in the last two nights with nerves . well done nk

'You'll be back': Djokovic ends Nick's run after Aussie's inevitable meltdown, but praises 'phenomenal' foe

there was definitely one easy one but the other two very difficult to impossible. two of them you can view o here . not easy keeping in Sri Lanka as even their own keeper stuffed up more than Carey

He will do well on foreign pitches . I’ve noticed the Aussie pitches are just bouncier and quicker for him and pink ball can be harder to pick up at night . he has indicated moving from red bounce at Gabba to pink ball dn and back to red ball takes more adjustment for him . by and large he bats well at scg where it is less bouncy . I suspect he can do really well in India and uk coming up and may be able to get on top of the windies at home this summer .

Has Marnus Labuschagne’s success limited Steve Smith’s impact?
