Agreed frankie we could cut our test matches to 4 days and still have a result each test
Roy is the scapegoat to save other players averages IMO

I reckon that your lot are going to do a phoenix and rise from the ashes.(pun intended ) 200 odd to get tomorrow. Then go on and win the Ashes.

Same as the World Cup final. Virtually gone but still found a way to win it. A huge summer for English cricket.


This is not a very good Australian Test team. Bowlers are doing their job but the batting (other than Smith and the Saffer) has been abysmal. When Mitch Marsh is the next in line to be selected, then you know that you are in trouble.

Nearly 0200 here and I can't sleep. Feeling all doom and gloomish.







Hang on. Not all bad. QPR had a win. If they can win, then any team, anywhere, can win.

And then I just read this.

Crikey!!! It just goes to prove that anything is possible (other than me backing a long priced winner )

Hey Bazza keep in mind most of the big US stars did not play - Things may be a bit different at the forthcoming world cup - But then again a win is a win in any language.

I think both teams are quite evenly matched. Most of the batting is poor but the bowlers drag the teams along. Anyway the Series is still alive and there for the taking.

At least Roy managed to contribute something this time.

I'm shit sick of watching Steve Smith bat on and on and on........Think England will have to hire the services of a hitman to stop him from scoring runs. Doesnt help when he is dropped, and later caught off a no-ball bowled by a spinner. FFS.

Iíve changed my mind about his 12 month ban being sufficient

Should have been 18 month

LOL! Would probably have this series in the bag by now, if it had of been. Interesting last day. England 365 runs to win Australia require 8 wickets. Got to be the Aussies I think. Unless Sir Ben can pull off another miracle, and be on his way to sainthood.
