Just watched some highlights and that Chanderpaul fella has horrific technique.

He’s going to be out LBW 99 times out of 100
And yet he’s still not out

Watson has a beautiful technique and yet he was still out lbw 99 times out of 50 (twice each time wasting drs)

Ponting has been taken to hospital with a heart scare

It's not thought to be serious, just precautionary. he was feeling unwell and suffering from dizziness

I understand it’s mid week but this crowd is fucken woeful. Woeful stadium for the majority of its purpose. Beautiful but unnecessarily big. Hopefully far bigger crowds come out on the weekend or we should seriously be considering the future of the test at this location. Likely to be an entertaining nation come next year I reckon it’s probably the venues last chance cause it has been very underwhelming every time it has gotten a run in at any level of cricket. Would seriously love for the government to pump a bit of money back into the WACA for it to be operational (I believe it is pretty run down now) cause that is a genuinely great venue.

Same shit happens in the NRL far to many teams try and use to big a venue despite how asshole not only the venue is but they perform (not that Australia is performing asshole).

They averaged 25,000 against New Zealand and India the other two Tests there.

WI are terrible, it’s not holidays and mid week.

It’s all the same arguments the QC use when the ‘Gabba only get 10,000.

The WACA wicket had turned into one of the flattest, most boring pitches in world cricket too

Green looks to be quite a danger to face, because of the bounce he gets

Are you watching the game ?
Flattest pitch what ?

Batsmen are getting hit in the head regularly .

West Indian batsmen, not Australian, massive difference in class there that factors in.

Huh? I am talking about the old WACA ground. You know this isn't being played at the WACA, right? That the WACA and Optus are two different stadiums? That I said Optus is fine and not flat.?
