    lol, so you want to get of Paine permanently. You also chose a one gamer instead of Hazelwood and someone who can hardly walk in place of Warner. That Darcy Short plan of yours didn't last long.

    Head and Finch are part timers. You're not going to get great work out of either. But I don't think that is why we are losing. England don't have a spinner Root's getting wickets!

    How would anyone know who our best spinner is when we barely pick one?

    Imo Lyon is our best spinner in all formats.

    Did I say I want to replace Paine permanently? Richardson did a great job last night so there is no need to drop him. And Lynn would be my first pick if not him it would be Short.

    How long would you replace him then? Why are you replacing Paine?

    Exactly your not going to get great work out of a part timer so put a genuine spin bowler in (Lyon).
    Finchs batting outweighs any problems with his part time bowling.

    Carey is more of a batsmen in the shorter game than Paine. I would rest him until SA

    We are losing it and England winning it at the same part of the game, we lose it in the middle when we lose wickets and then don't have set batsmen like Finch and Marsh there at the end. 62 runs last night from the last 11 overs.

    Butler and Root gave them stability after a wobble. We haven't had that at all.

    England are very good in the middle overs and Australia are very poor. That's what is costing us 50 plus runs and then exposing bowlers who are part time in the power play.

    Interesting record against spin since the WC

    Australia averages 35.92 run rate 5.20.
    England averages 58.44 run rate 6.30.

    We don't use a spinner so we aren't playing it too well either.

  9. Just gonna throw it out there, I'm not sure Head is actually as good as a lot of people think he is.

    Seems to be living off his form from 1-2 years ago. Has only scored 1x 50 for Australia since the 2017 Summer at an average of 28.8

    He’s not on his own. Smith is averaging 35 in the last 10 games.

    When you lose 9/10 games no one gets out of it well.

    They’re just not playing smart cricket. I don’t think it’s the personal.

    Much tighter bowling. England’s dot ball percent is highest of the three games and cross batted shots down from the two previous games.

    And then they lost their shit and threw it all away.

    Death bowling needs work.

    That’s when happens when you play a side like this. The ODI game has evolved but the Aussies still play too traditional.

    Another Warner failure.
    Surely his spot in the side has to come under some pressure....

    Still sticking with Warner? 3 100s in his last 14 ODI games

    After this horse shit, just about everyone but Finch should be under pressure.

    Would I stick with the vice captain who has scored 736 runs in the last 12 months at 49? Would I stick with the guy with 4315 runs at 44? 14 100's?

    Yep I would.

    Just out of interest what more from an opener are you looking for then averaging 49 this year?
