ACB looks backwards rather than forwards ......... Haddin to lead while Clarke is treated.
As far as I know, Haddin is recovering from injury himself, isn't he ?

Cheers

So, does this thrashing show that our spinner(s) simply are not good enough? Of course I am ignoring all the other team shortcomings, but Pakistan's spinners seemed to do well, while ours were basically laughed at.
Much repair work to be done before the Gabba test, so Boof will have his work cut out.
Seems like we still don't have a clue how to play the sub-continent teams at home (not even in Pakistan in this case).

Cheers

It is poor but I don't think it is as bad as it looks. Win toss, bat forever on what must be a road, pitch deteriorates, takes spin. That and we dont play spin well.

I'd like to see Pakistan bat first in Perth v MJ and co and see how good they are.

How did we get SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO bad so quick?
I remember when the WI were the top team. We always dug in and fought tooth and nail.
Our current crop don't seem to have the same guts or grit.

I must say, seeing cricket so one sided is so bloody boring. The ABC cricket site gives us a generous 0.3% chance of a win.

Our only chance in this game really was if we won the toss and got 400+.

No chance now IMO

Its pretty sad that after all these years we still haven't learnt how to play spin.
