They all bat like a bunch of fucken pussies. Jesus fucken christ. We have had nothing to lose for nearly an hour now and the only bloke willing to pull there finger out was Peirson.
Imagine getting rid of Lynn when that's your batting lineup. Smart decisions.
Ah, so the team expected to have test players available when they were never going to be? Sounds like smart squad building.Yeah well that really isn’t our batting lineup is it. Still missing Khawaja, Marnus and Renshaw plus Neser can round off an innings better than what we had.
Good otherwise test cricket will die. There’s talk about limiting first innings to 100 overs and making it 4 days. Stops teams making 500 and being on the attack the rest of the match.Maybe we're entering a phase where captains are almost gonna be shamed out of opting for draws
I can't see it happening, at least not for a long time, like full generational change amount of time. They've made zero progress on much smaller things like flexibility around breaks (like when it can rain for 2 days, they come out and play and then go off for lunch break 15 minutes later). And I don't think it has to either, the cricket being played is as good as I have seen it in my life. I've never bought into the doom about test cricket.Good otherwise test cricket will die. There’s talk about limiting first innings to 100 overs and making it 4 days. Stops teams making 500 and being on the attack the rest of the match.
