well whose fault is that :oops: :oops:

CA, ridiculous penalties handed out. Others who actually succeeded in changing the condition of the ball got less.
I see the Indian ball polishers have a ridiculous amount of bandaging on their fingers much like Warner had, you cant tell me its for medical reasons.i assume its to stop any sweat getting on the rough side of the ball when they polish the ball
I tend to agree with you days. For starters in that series Faf the South African captain had been done twice for it.

Agree, just about our most important player in the team right now.

Shane Warne reeling off stats earlier about Hazelwood and Starc and their wickets and averages in Tests during 2018 and they are not that great. Talk about us having the best attack in the world is just not the case.

Cummins however has the best record out of all of them as first change bowler. As whufc said, whoever got him to where his body appears so strong these days needs to work with the rest of the pace bowlers in the country like Pattinson who continually break down still.

I would love to see Starc’s average for the top 6 batsmen vs bottom 6

Considering his career average is 28 and his renowned for cleaning up the tail, I’m guessing it’s somewhere in the mid 30’s at best

And the Mitch Marsh one as well!
Both should never play again for Australia at Test level.


Correct.... but there is no one else. Nothing. Zilch. Zippo. And thats our perennial problem. As it is Head and Harris are playing ahead of their time. Only Ussie is a Test batsman of note. And he isnt in great nick.


At least Burns is in form and has a history of hitting long form runs as a opener


Burns has as good a first class record as Shaun Marsh let alone Mitch and a better test record than either. I bet if he had a W.A. connection he would be in the test team.
Kurtis Patterson too averages as much at first class level as Shaun Marsh and has started the Shield season well. Surely he too is worth a go.
I know that they can't do it but unless they score centuries in the final innings of this test I would bring in Burns, Patterson and Handscomb (for all his technical flaws he has a much better average than S Marsh at test level) for the Sydney Test.

Even Moises Henriques, who I have never thought was test standard has a better first class record than M Marsh.

Agree with Burns and Patterson getting a gig. Handscomb I think needs to seriously work on his technique but he's certainly not a worse batting option than Mitch Marsh.

There is no way in hell you can play Handcomb next test on the back of smacking around Greg West ffs

Pattinson has not done enough in the shield , if any bowler is to come in it will be Tremain or Richardson hopefully for Starc the peaheart

You'd have Monty Burns and Sir Les Patterson in instead of Stan Darsh and 'Rachel' Finch.

Been thinking of who they can bring in, as they have to make changes, can't keep going with the same top six.

With Big Bash on, makes it hard to choose who should be selected.

I keep going back to Sheffield Shield, and to me the guy who should be picked is Matthew Wade.

Has two Test centuries to his name, is clearly the leading run scorer in SS this season, and looks like is hitting the ball as well as ever.

I know he divides opinion bit like Marsh brothers, but at least he values his wicket and will give 100% as well as bit of mongrel to the team.

I would play Handscomb on his test record compared to Finch and the Marsh brothers. Sure he has technique issues but he scores more test runs than any of those three

I am talking about Kurtis Pattinson, not James Pattinson. Kurtis Pattison is averaging over 47 this shield season and has an identical career average to Shaun Marsh, who at 35 years of age surely has had too many chances.

Actually I hadn't thought of Matthew Wade. I thought that he was a wicked keeper but you make a good point about his batting. He would be a better number 6 than Mitchell Marsh.

Wade just smacked em in the BBL, must be a sure thing for the test team now.

I'd play Tom Cooper ahead of Handscomb just have to tell him if he doesn't score a ton before each match he will be dropped, will average more than Bradman.

Ahh - and here in lies the truth.
I’ve held this thought for a while - he’s very pro Marsh brs.
Yes Langer has come in at a difficult time, but he’s clearly a yes man. Softly spoken with views that don’t upset.
The jury is still well & truly out in him.
