    So when are Warner and Smith finally back?
     
  2. First time in Test history a top 5 batsman has been dismissed for single digits 6 innings in a row.

    Shaun Marsh making history.

    Head proving me wrong here. Very good knock.

    Lol @ Shaun. Just get rid of him and get Patterson in. Strip Shaun and Mitch of their Aussie citizenship or let WA secede so the selectors can’t be tempted ever again.

    EDIT: Or Wade, he put on another special knock in a low scoring affair.

    Burns and Wade in, Harris and Paine out, not the worst option going around. Wade in particular is knocking the door down this season.

    Harris was good yesterday- didn't get a score but like I said last week after watching him for Victoria I think he has a style that will suit Test cricket.

    Paine has been sensational and dropping him is the last thing this side needs. It needs stability and Wade getting a few runs doesn't change that.

    Just further on the Oval and how it's changed, hasn't been a 200 partnership there since Haddin and Clarke in 2014. That's any form of cricket.

    This type of Test has become the norm.

    Not yet- George Bonnor 1888 for Australia.

    4, 2, 0, 3, 6, 8, 0, 5, 5 and 0.

    Dropped.

    Why?

    He’s the most in-form batsman in Australia.

    See previous 13 recalls and failures.

    Also he may get you more runs but you lose them on missed chances and byes and everything else he lets through.
     
  11. Wade should be a specialist batsman at this point, forget the keeping. He's out performing everyone.

    Because he constantly fails at the top level and he is a shit keeper.

    She should get a go in the men’s team one day, in any format.

    Anyone on here who is suggesting we shouldn't pick Wade because he's a shit keeper is demonstrating how little attention they pay to first class cricket.

    The bloke isn't even keeping anymore haha

    Four catches against the Bulls in the first innings on Friday.

    Kept in round 1, 2 and 6.

    Paine round 3, 4, 5.

    3 games and 11 catches.
     
  17. You're saying he kept in the 3 shield matches in which Tim Paine wasn't available?.. Remarkable.

    I believe the point is that he's scoring more runs than anyone else in the country by a country mile, and is scoring them consistently. I'd have no issue with him replacing Marsh, moving Handscomb & Head up to 4 & 5 respectively and batting Wade & Paine at 6 & 7.

    72*, 51, 66*, 50, 137, 43, 63, 40 across only 6 matches is pretty impressive consistency.

    Not really remarkable but opposite to he never keeps anymore like the claim.
     
    That last out was very questionable.
