How do we get all out for 60, no luck, Everything caught for the match by great fielding; to none for 100, All other the luck in the world and poms fielding like busted asses all in the time span of two days? What a strange match.

Don't worry it's back to normal proceedings now, 4 wickets fall in the space of 27 balls. SMarsh looks to just hang his bat out where it doesn't belong to give the slips catching practice.

Good times.

How long was left in the day before they went off for bad light? You would have to admit it would have been piss funny if they had lost within two days

If it wasn't for ticket sales, broadcasting, sponsors etc I'd be putting them on a plane and bringing them home. They won't last the morning session on day 3.

So were likely to see 5/6 batting changes for the next test series. Great.

Only in limited overs stuff though. They didn't score many in the 4 day stuff.

Bancroft did though, he'll be short odds to be Warner's next partner.

Burns and Khawaja will almost definitely come into the test squad for Bangladesh too, but more likely as middle order bats I reckon.

I suspect we are about to see Australia go through another period of bollocks performances like they did a few years ago (prior to the 2013 Ashes series, where they started to turn for the better). A lot of players who might have talent but aren't test hardened, and what's more cannot play on abrasive pitches (I am betting on a 4-0 thrashing in India again to accompany the main course of an ass whipping in England)

I wouldn't be surprised if we turn around and spank England next time they're here

We weren't great in the 2013 England tour then came back home and wiped the floor with them

Hard to make a case for Clarke in top 6 of the past 20 years
Hayden
Taylor
Ponting
M Waugh
S Waugh
Hussey

I ain't no Clarke fan but he averaged more than Taylor and Mark Waugh I am pretty sure. That said other than Taylor I'd have little argument over that order - we really miss someone with S Waugh's grit nowadays.

That's a great 6 but how close were you to adding Stuart Law ?

Taylor opening with an average no worse than Clarke and, from memory, no tests against Bangladesh or Zimbabwe.
Taylor made 890 runs at 80odd in england in 1989, 334* in Pakistan. His poor patches of form were probably on home decks.
