    Starc has in doubt with his heel.

    Guess Mitch Marsh doesn’t get dropped

    He won’t be dropped for the next ten years after making a ton and having the name Marsh even if he gets nothing but ducks.

    Was this while Paine was batting? I couldn't imagine that Paine would miss out, he's been good with gloves and bat

    Paine is in doubt due to a family health emergency

    He’s not in Melbourne. Father in law had a stroke. Handscomb is the cover you’d assume from training.

    They think he will join the team Sunday.

    It's mid 130s but swings it, very different to Hazlewood and Cummins and obviously completely different to Starc.

    Just about any other era, I reckon he easily plays 50+ tests for Australia.

    The Umpires have told Anderson to man up and learn to play the short ball

    Bancroft not handling bounce; he’d be out caught four times if they put a short leg.

    Seems odd an opening bat from WACA not having a plan for bounce.

    Warner looks dangerous. His average has been good this series 49.

    But his strike rate is well down like he’s playing a bit within himself. 54 v career 76.

    10th opening mate might not be helping.
     
  17. Great stuff from Warner so far, he's primed for a big one.

    In the eight Tests he’s played, he’s picked up 34 wickets and managed to induce false shots off 11.8% of the deliveries he’s bowled. Compared to that, Cummins & Hazlewood average 11.9% and 11.3% with only Starc’s 15.3% being vastly different from Bird.

    No good Bancroft struggled through that and did plenty of hard work then out.

    Needs to learn how to still score when it’s tough. 12% attacking shots and there was plenty of short balls and over pitched. One scoring shot off the 17.
