Cricket Part II


#8973

Renshaw wasn’t picked because he still had concussion is what they are saying.


#8974

P-Siddy gets an early breakthrough, dismissing Abbas by hitting the top of off. Pakistan 4/264


#8975

I legit thought Siddle was retired.


#8976

So a huge crowd turnout, reckon there’s about 3 in the entire stadium? Surely could have put it somewhere where people would want to see it…


#8977

Back to Siddle? I know he’s a honest toiler but we really have no one else to cover Hazelwood? No other young exciting bowler? Holland looks less effective than Bryce McGain…


#8978

Problem is players won’t got to the crowds as it would mean going to Pakistan. Doesn’t help that they started the match on a Sunday - which is the first day of the working week in Dubai.


#8979

He looks the pick of the quicks too… jeez we’re fcked.

What happened to Pattinson and Cummins? Still dead?


#8980

And that it hovers between 38-42 degrees this time of year. Admission prices our out of the realms of affordability for most of the Pakistanis that work in the UAE also


#8981

bit strange that Mitch Marsh has only bowled 6 overs, while Starc has bowled 30. You would think you would be using Marsh more to give Starc a rest


#8982

I thought that yesterday. Could’ve given Head a few overs as well.


#8983

I swear we say that every test. “Why don’t they bowl Marsh more?”…allrounder that never bowls.


#8984

Definitely under used the part timers. Lyons about to hit 50 overs and god only knows how many more he’s going to have to bowl this series


#8985

hehehe


#8986

Then he does bowl and everyone goes “ohhhhh that’s right”


#8987

Pattinson hit a ton for Vic 2nds today.


#8988

If he is being picked as a batsman then we are truly ■■■■■■, like WI levels of ■■■■■■


#8989

That ship has sailed though surely. This is the worst Australia team I’ve seen. Looking forward to watching us make this pitch look like a ■■■■■■■ minefield when we bat.


#8990

Think they have put Mitch Marsh in cotton wool with his bowling to a large extent given his batting importance. The sad facts are that you can easily argue Mitch Marsh is one of our best 2 bats outside Australia in the current team. Even sadder is his brother is probably the best.


#8991

Oh, stop it! :joy::joy:


#8992

pretty close to it imo
