This works well in the Australian summer but there is a dew issue in the uk early in the morning

Eleven ways to speed up Test cricket - time to cut out the wasted hours

Agree prez. If the umpires enforced this it would solve a lot of the problems

Eleven ways to speed up Test cricket - time to cut out the wasted hours

Pink ball game in Hobart? Don’t think slow overs will be an issue with a 2 1/2 day game

Who should get the nod for Australia in the final Ashes Test?

For the love of nectar…

Who should get the nod for Australia in the final Ashes Test?

Drop Lyon. Won’t need spin in Hobart, even if you did there’s still Head, Markus and Smith

Harris
Warner
Marnus
Smith
Khawaja
Head
Green
Carey
Cummins
Starc
Richardson/Boland

Who should get the nod for Australia in the final Ashes Test?

Suspect theyll bring Burns in for Hameed, Billings for Buttler and Woakes for Stokes. They’re a bit coy re the Bairstow injury but if it’s not a fracture ( and it proabably wasnt judging by his second innings) then he’ll probably bat, doubt he’ll keep

Stokes, Bairstow racing clock to be fit for Ashes finale: Root

Actually the game situation on day 5 meant he got less of a bombing and more length deliveries. Would have suited him

The Warner whisperer, the clam catcher, and other observations from the SCG Test

S*$t gets wickets. I played with a guy who bowled absolute pies but you could just see the batsmen’s eyes light up. Unfortunately for them they would often spoon catches. He always collected wickets where some of our better bowlers would go wicketless

The Warner whisperer, the clam catcher, and other observations from the SCG Test

Here’s a left field suggestion – drop Lyon. Green has been performing really well with the ball and spin may not be required in Hobart. If it is, there’s Marnus, Head and Smith

Harris
Warner
Marnus
Smith
Khawaja
Head
Green
Carey
Cummins
Richardson/Starc
Neser/Boland

Obviously Neser would bat higher of selected – positioned at 11 as like for like Boland injury replacement

Khawaja must play ahead of Harris while Starc should rest but selectors remain coy

Glorious! What a legend

Agree Pierro but not convinced about elevated Labs, doing well at three. How have you enjoyed the ashes so far? Happy with the new keeper?

Khawaja must play ahead of Harris while Starc should rest but selectors remain coy

Harris has had plenty of chances. He’s also very similar in terms of stature, stroke making and mode of dismissal to Warner. I was recommending uzzie to open pre ashes. Agree with giving the incumbent a good run tho

Khawaja must play ahead of Harris while Starc should rest but selectors remain coy

It’s amazing his white ball form has never been able to translate into the red ball game with the bat. Must be the pressure

Going back in time to prevent Headingley

The Liebke Report Card: Khawaja proves Warne principle, while Alpha Pat is most Australian captain ever

Reckon they’ll go back to Burns and Hameed will be one of the scapegoats for the tour. Although I’m sure Malan could open, seems a shame to disrupt the order with he at root at 3 and 4. It’s been one of the few things working for them. I’m very interested to see the result of bairstow’s scan

Root confirms Buttler's series over, praises team's 'small step forward'

I never ever thought the robot uprising would begin with Ben Stokes

The Liebke Report Card: Khawaja proves Warne principle, while Alpha Pat is most Australian captain ever

Agree, most teams wouldn’t declare and risk losing. The weather was the unknown and was hard to factor in. 350 would have been a very aggressive declaration. As I said during the live game feed, Alistair Cook would have batted to a lead of 550

DAY 5 REPORT: Honeymoon’s over for Cummins as Aussies fail to finish off Poms in thriller

Yawn. Don trump Freo. Head meet sand

DAY 5 REPORT: Honeymoon’s over for Cummins as Aussies fail to finish off Poms in thriller

A lower target would have changed the style of the English batting, ie trying to score instead of shutting up shop. Ultimately though we had our chances and didn’t take them. Still 3-0 is a nice comfy position

DAY 5 REPORT: Honeymoon’s over for Cummins as Aussies fail to finish off Poms in thriller

Yes it was widely criticised. It was a declaration aimed at not losing and it fell short of winning, hence it was criticised. Not that hard to understand Don

All this talk of the English bowling lineup and selection choices when the fact is they’ve lost the series with the bat and by dropping catches. Tinkering with the bowling unit is deck chair shuffling at its finest

'Spin hasn't been there': Lyon cautions against a Swepson SCG debut

What are you talking about Paul have you seen his action? 5-fa on debut for sure against this Eng line-up. There must be some sort of Sydney test medal he could win for his efforts too

‘disrespectful to the institution that is Ashes cricket’

This England team is disrespectful to ashes cricket. They could play Johnny Howard at 6 and still win

Earlier reports had suggested it was only a head cold…

I’ll show myself out
