Cricket Part II


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

Jadeja in for Ashwin and Vihari for Pandya.


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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.


Siddle is back!


Who the ■■■■ is Brendan Doggett?


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.


Indigenous blood. Had a big year last season.


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.


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


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.


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?


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.


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