Well it is a good come back by the Aussies this morning and very respectful of the Indians too.

Cheers Charles

Bit harsh ..... it was bloody hot I can tell you, and nobody wanted to go off. Bowling was off, fielding was off, and the Aussies paid the price.. Couldn't believe how many drinks breaks and "runners" coming on ....... looked like an AFL game there were so many yellow singlets among the whites. Umpires were sick of it too.

Today looks a bit better, so I hope our batsmen can make the Indians suffer.

Cheers

So much for great expectations.

What a bunch of girly men.

One day in the field and they are wrecked!!

Over paid pampered prima donnas - "can't bowl, I have a sore finger!!"

Bring back the real men of the 60's. All the West Indies fast bowlers. Dennis Lilleee, Tommo Hadlee etc etc.

Two fresh, big tall lads on the Gabba strip could be entertaining. Good bounce and swing. Starc's big inswinging yorkers can be unplayable.

Hazelwood and Starc in for Harris ( injured) and Siddle ( loss of form). Well, they'll have a fair chance to show their wares at the Gabba. Looking forward to being there.

If we can keep them fit they could all play. Harris and MJ are current stand outs but as you say , they do not have that much left in them, especially Harris who is older but still a superb bowler imho.

Right or wrong, if he can prove his fitness, I think they will stick with Siddle for a few matches yet. There are only a few days between tests, so it will be a challenge for all that played.

We have a rich vein of talent in the fast/ medium fast bowling dep't across all ages. Cutting Bollinger Abbott Starc Hazlewood Copeland Siddle Harris Johnson to name a few. I have read good things about Jason Behrendorf and Gurinder Sandhu too but have not seen them play at all.

Johnson is 33, Siddle is 30 ( and a vegan??) , and Harris is 35, so our fast bowling definitely needs some younger blood. Harris also looks as though he's suffering most of the time, although I have the highest regard for his bowling.
Definitely need to be blooding the younger ones more, also need to resolve the captaincy succession issue. And do we have another 50 test average batsman waiting somewhere ?
Interesting times.

Cheers
J
