If that was in the sub continent Trav would be accused of match fixing, genuinely looked like he was trying to hit it there FFS

Head will never take the next step.
Head has no mental ability.
Head needs to relinquish his spot for an allrounder. Any allrounder. Lets face it, Henriques M Marsh or Green could make the occasional handy 50 that Head does BUT will also provide some overs.

I think Head needs some runs to prove his worth or else should be dropped, but I don't understand the obsession with allrounders.

The top six need to have a FC average at least in the 40s, IMO.

Even our last genuine test-level allrounder, Richie Benaud, didn't take the spot of a batsman.

Reckon Shane Watson would feel a bit hard done by there. Surely to be a genuine all rounder your batting average has to be higher than your bowling average.

Watson- 35 with bat, 33 with ball
Benaud- 24 with bat, 27 with ball

An all rounder is the insurance needed in the event a bowler pulls a hammie after 8 balls. The 4th innings might be frustrating if the kiwis dig in. With just 3 frontline bowlers we would be relying on Marnie coming up with enough decent deliveries to keep the batsmen guessing.

Would think the Australians will bat again



No doubt about that, could be an entertaining 2nd session and a bit, get a lead up over 400 and send them back in for the last hour tonight

Yeah cant see this making day 5


Fair play to the curator, you can't prepare a pitch for the fu**en apocalypse but he's still managed to do a far better job than the clown in Adelaide.


I get the temps in Perth but you can’t be happy with a pitch that is a spitting cobra on the 3rd day. One more afternoon bake and that pitch is going to be a landmine. I’d be tempted to declare now in case another bowler cops a broken hand, finger or arm...

Adelaide and Brisbane are by far the best Test decks in the country. As a venue Adelaide is far better and would be one of the best 3-5 cricketing venues in the World. It’s been curated over the years to get a result in the last 4 sessions which means runs galore for the first 3 days. The only time it changed was when they played the first day-night Test and they were worried about the pink ball scuffing up, so they made it a green top. To suggest Adelaide is a road is a bit rich. It has consistently produced the best outcomes (Most days and results) for a very long time.

Depends how you look at it

Personally I believe a pitch should produce a result through 4 completed innings.

Off the top of my head I would say Adelaide is very reliant on declarations especially in the first innings, no stats to back it up.

Howie is so freaking annoying


We don’t care that Wagner has bowled his highest number of overs in test. Mentioned it a good dozen times today
