Yeah those two didn’t finish in the way they would have liked.

Steve Smith named Australian Test cricket captain

Smith needs to stay at 5. Way too much pressure captaining and batting at 4 for a young man.

Steve Smith named Australian Test cricket captain

Totally agree.

Test cricket the true winner

Agree with Smith as captain. He has shown maturity and is ready to step up.

Appoint Steve Smith as Test captain today

Smith looked excellent in South Africa, If Warner hadn’t of gone crazy he would have been our best batsman. I was sceptical going into the South Africa tour that his technique would fall apart, but he straight away proved my concerns wrong. After losing early wickets he comes in and makes a terrific hundred in tricky circumstances. It’s only up from here.

Looking forward to the Pakistan tour as Smith is a terrific player of spin and might carve them up.

Will Steve Smith follow Michael Clarke as Test captain?

There was a late goal by St Kilda, but that didn’t stop St Kilda getting beat by 145.

The Hawks outplayed and destroyed the Saints in every department.

Hartung, Litherland and Hallahan looked impressive and Schoenmakers was impressive on return.

This was an absolute clinic
