I think once Head can finally go on with an innings we’ll see him kick on.


Like Steve Waugh?

It's a game that relies on human decision making and skill execution: batting, bowling and umpriing.

That's what makes it such a great game, best game in the world IMO,

Ha. The umpires can't see no balls off Lyon so how can they see 20 metres?

Apart from Flinch every batsman has got a start again this innings and not been able to convert it to anything worthwhile.

So far this series highest score made by an Australian is 72 by Head and Khawaja

Only 8 partnerships over 60 by Australia in which Head has featured in 5 of them

That innings was prob just enough to give him his 'ump'teenth last chance for the Sydney test


Problem is Marsh is always batting well until he gets out.
He just doesn’t go on with it.

He’s proven he’s not up to this standard.
Had a reasonable career but time too move him on also.


Stan Darsh is a pamphlet, looks impressive but contains sweet f**k all. His brother performs like a Bedford Industries version of their gene pool.

Cummins is a million miles better all rounder than Mitch Marsh

Sydney

Burns
Harris
Khawaja
S Marsh, survives only because i cant think of anyone else unless Finch gets moved down the order
Head
Wade- All rounder, just as likely to get a wicket as M.Marsh
Paine
Cummins
Lyon
Any young spinner or a new fast Bowler depending on conditions
Hazelwood


Out
Finch never to be picked again
M Marsh never again but i feel he has a solid 10 years of international cricket ahead of him.
Starc, sick of him wasting the new ball, only good for getting the tail out.

Cummins 60* with the shot of the day, sweetly timed straight drive down the ground, beautiful to watch

Well put, better off putting Stoinis/Agar ( how much less does he deserve a gig than Mong Darsh at Sydney ?) at 6, Cummins, Paine, the lesser half of the Healy/Starc partnership, Gary and Hazelwood.
