Ashes 2019

Recommended Posts

Steve Smith may not be the epitome of style & grace as a batsman.........but who cares - he does make a lot of runs...........like Bradman!

He saved Australia yesterday!

He's a disgrace. I can't believe he gets chosen to rep his country.

Faf keeps getting a game and he has been done twice for ball tampering (and did the tampering himself on both occasions). Pot, kettle

At least Faf took it on himself. Smith ordered the youngest easiest swayed member of his team t9 do the dirty deed"

And that's why he got a year. Complete abdication of responsibility as captain - he knew it was going on and should have put an end to it immediately. 

I think Faf was unlucky on the second one but probably should have been a little more careful given his prior.

I'm not defending Faf. I just can't believe CA can't find a replacement for ss.

Not many batsman averaging 60 plus but he should never be captain again.

I guess not. What do I know?

Australian cricket is light on quality batsmen - if Smith and Warner were anything other than the best two batsmen (then daylight) they might have been barred permanently which a lot of people here would agree with. Warner in particular is still very much on the nose.

All teams fiddle with the ball, but the sandpaper was just a step too far.

Yep - sandpaper was a new low and surprisingly ineffectual.

Well we don’t know in how many games it was used. I seem to recall it was going all over the place in Durban.

May take is this. I love cricket. ODI is also mostly good. And then is there that hit and giggle bullshit that some like to call cricket as well.

Labuschagne making a name for himself.

I must say without SS there I'm glad the Roo's are giving the Roses stick. 

Do you think Archer can make a comeback? He looked totally washout to me, even before the 'cramps'.
