Well Done, Mitch



Mitchell Marsh: Australia all-rounder to miss start of Test summer after punching wall & breaking hand



Showing great leadership qualities there. Bloody idiot

Rather disappointing that all our English friends have not congratulated the greatest-ever Test cricket nation returning to the #1 Test team position


Now I ain't one to skite but look at these figures




Number One in Test Cricket









Not only that but they have the best Test batsman and bowler in the world as well. Plus three in the top 10 in both categories












Even more amazingly and probably for the first time in the history of the game, they have the top 4 Test batting averages to boot. Look how far Kohli is behind and he is the next best of the current players













All joking aside, this bloke deserves a bloody medal.









Thrown in at the deep end when the shit hit the fan a couple of years ago in South Africa, he has turned everything around. Who would have thought that? There are better batsmen/wicketkeepers in Australia but with his quiet, unassuming style (gentlemanly?) he has brought them back from the brink. I hope he stays on for another season or two.

Managed to watch a fair bit of this Test. It was pretty good stuff and nearly got to be a cliffhanger, but not quite. Windies deserved their win and kudos to them for coming to England and getting International cricket kick started again. Got all the makings of a nice tight 3 Test series.

The Pakistan series has started well too and now there is a white ball series to look forward to in a few weeks time

Aussies are there next month for ODIs and T20s

Cummins being groomed to be the next captain. Don't think a quick has been a regular captain of a Australian side before

Watching Jofra Archer going for the head against Indian batsmen in the 19th over of tonight's IPL game. Bean balls and short stuff and actually hitting one bloke in the noggin. He will need to watch himself or will end up being banned from the game. This is 2020 after all.


He has already probably finished Steve Smiths's Test career after hitting him in the Ashes series in 2019. Pretty sure Smith hasn't hit a Test century since. Not that I really care


Archer brings back memories of other English players like Larwood in the Bodyline series and John Snow in the early 70s. They liked hitting Australian batsmen for the fun of it.


Most* Australian cricketers are gentlemen and play the game accordingly.









* Cunts like Smith, Warner and Bancroft are obviously not considered as gentlemen

I’m sure Stuart broads batting career was over once he was found out he didn’t like the short stuff used to be a very handy batsmen
