Cricket Part II


#8773

Poms win the toss at The Oval and bat. 0/13

Jadeja in for Ashwin and Vihari for Pandya.


#8774

I really appreciate the English style of commentary, they only talk when there is something to say.


#8775

Would be good to see Cook get a ton. Flat pitch and dead rubber, has the odds in his favour


#8776

Not a fan at all of Ali batting at 3. Much better coming in down the order. Against pace on bounce pitches he will be cannon fodder


#8777

Shami beating the bat about 3 times every over. Hard to believe no one can get an edge


#8778

Problem is they have no other options. Have a multitude of 5-8 and world class at that but nothing otherwise


#8779

Cook!! Well done!!

Gets a ton in his final game. Fitting way to end to a fantastic career

I think he is the only guy in test history to make a 50 and a ton in both his first ever match and his last ever match


#8780

Cook brings up his 100 with four overthrows.
Well done to a modest champion


#8781

Don’t think I have ever seen someone get their ton off overthrows


#8782

Congrats Alistair Cook. Absolute champion and honest character if ever there was one. Wish we’d had a couple of him over the last few years.
And feast on British balls India.


#8783

Siddle is back!


#8784

Who the ■■■■ is Brendan Doggett?


#8785

New coach same issue for Maxwell.

Anyway here is the team:
Tim Paine ©, Ashton Agar, Brendan Doggett, Aaron Finch, Travis Head, Jon Holland, Usman Khawaja, Marnus Labuschagne, Nathan Lyon, Mitch Marsh, Shaun Marsh, Michael Neser, Matt Renshaw, Peter Siddle, Mitchell Starc.

Doggett is a tall fast bowler.

5 Qld’ers in the side.


#8786

Indigenous blood. Had a big year last season.


#8787

Maxwell clearly has his card marked as never to play again. It’s disgraceful really that because he doesn’t fit the mould he misses out. His shield record last year combined with making a century in India had to make him one of the first picked in this squad.


#8788

True, it’s a absolute disgrace.

Joe Burns also very harshly done by, was very stiff to get dropped in the first place couple of years ago. Seriously will get pumped in this series


#8789

Tim Paine has to be the luckiest player in living memory. Shouldn’t be in the team let alone captain.

Marnus Labuschagne didn’t realise he was in contention. Maybe we’re going down the route of the English and hoping for the saffas to contribute to our batting line up.


#8790

Amazed that Maxwell wasn’t selected by Australia. One of the best players of spin in the country and he doesn’t get picked. Must of really ticked someone off at some point along the line

Aaron finch in tests? Does he even play shield cricket?


#8791

The one thing that Langer expects, is friggin’ hard hard work. That is one thing that continues to dog Maxwell, he doesn’t work hard enough.

I don’t know if that is true or not but that is always what is talked about.


#8792

Maxwell should just join the T20 circuit, he’s had his run, time to cash in
