Who cares..

Follow on..don't follow on.

The Poms are on their knees, let's finish them off in Perth.

Steve Smith backs his players and so far they haven't let him down.

Mitch Marsh seems to be back in the mix.

Id say Handscomb is in trouble. If u look back, he was my sneaky not to last the Ashes.

Talk that MMarsh could replace Handscombe. Unbelievable.

Maxwell must have slept with all the selectors wives or something.

I'm still here too. We gave them a sniff by not enforcing the follow on. We would've massacred them otherwise.

Should he have slept with the selectors instead?
Gina Riley: Oh, come on, John. That’s a bit old hat, the corrupt IOC delegate.
John Clarke: Old hat? Gina, in the scientific world when they see that something is happening again and again and again, repeatedly, they don’t call it old hat. They call it a pattern.

TBF, Mitch has avged something like 80 with the bat this season and just started bowling again.

Maxy will just have to keep scoring too

Avg 44 actually.

Maxwell replaced MMarsh in the test team and out performed him. Maxwell continues to out perform him at the domestic level too. There is no logic about MMarsh jumping the queue ahead of Maxwell again.

Ironically the top 3 batsmen in Sheffield Shield so far are Maxwell, Callum Ferguson and Joe Burns. All recent discards from the test team.

I think If Maxi bowled at some medium pace he’d be in, selectors want a ‘pacer’ to back up the quirks

Yep. A grand total of 22 overs in Shield returning 2 wickets at 48.00. crying out for a recall on those figures.

This says 71 in Shield cricket. He has 2 tons this season too.

FWIW, Id go back to Maxy, hell id have picked him over SMarsh for the 1st Test.

But at least MMarsh's batting numbers this season are actually worth reading, rather that previous yrs.

If you are going to cite media articles then you should probably read ALL the words. Its says "Across the last three Shield games, he has averaged 71 with the bat". Get your stats right Matt. :D

Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.
