WTF are you on about? Warner's friend dies so that gives him a get-out-of-jail card for cheating 3 years later.LOLI doubt Philip Hughes family agree with you- "You're a disgrace, you shouldn't be playing cricket."
[/QUOTE]

Exactly, Warner is a cheating, disliked little grub because of his mate's death Confused

You are truly kooky Brooke.

As for Smith, he has paid a high price for his lack of leadership, will be back playing for Australia, you actually have no say about it Brooke lol.

What do you want from the guy, sentence him to 20 years on Devils Island ?

7/138. Will India enforce the follow on? It doesn't seem to be a thing these days. With a quick turnaround to Sydney next week, they are unlikely to.

Aaron Finch has opened the batting 8 times in the Sheffield Shield for an average of 18.50 and a strike rate of 42.7.

And the 87 times he hasn't opened he averages 32.43. Why is he opening for Australia? Why is he even in the Test team?

Maybe because he along with the skipper are perhaps the only ones in the team who can string two legitimate sentences together in post-day interviews.Shocked

The whole thing is a sham, and I have no reason not to believe that Warner was the instigator.

Unfortunately, these 20 something young "alleged" men, have been taught by our pathetic society that EVERYONE IS A VICTIM - so they are simply playing to the masses, at the behest of their highly paid management and image consultants - you really can't blame them, they are just like the Stop Adani School Kid protestors, doing exactly as they are told ... in a different era, not long ago, the whole team would have been advised to man up and cop the consequences.

Is there anything in existence that is not pathetic in your bitter eyes ?

Do you give the same advice to the 20 somethings in your circle work group LOL

Certainly, you don't harm the theory.

If you are blindly unaware of the problem, like the "Useful Idiots", then you are a part of it, and can't do anything to fix it ... Ouch

Finch shows all his skills in 2 balls from Bumrah

Cricket Australia should mark Aaron Finch down as "never to play test cricket again."

The rest of the team haven't set the world on fire with the bat either but seriously, how many chances does this guy deserve? And I don't care who replaces him, it will be an improvement.

India laughing at Aaron Finch and CA, and so they should.

Langer has been banging on about how Bancroft is like a brother, part of his family made 1 silly mistake a great kid blah blah blah, o doubt Langer will do what he can to get another of his WACA mates in, good chance its Harris and Bancroft in Sydney I'd say.

At this point I think we should get young Pope in for bowling and the shaggy haired NSW opener for the Sydney test.

They could not do any worse!

If Sydney is like this it isn't going to make the selectors job of arguing the return of the miscreants very difficult.

Don't believe we have to make wholesale changes for Sydney: three is should be enough to maintain stability.

Have closely examined all the players in waiting and have come up with the following:

Harris
Lawry (for Finch)
Khawaja
G Chappell (for Shaun Marsh) 
Walters (for Mitch Marsh)
Head
Paine
Cummings
Starc
Lyon
Hazelwood

12th man: Neil Harvey

Just received a text from Alan Davidson suggesting he's a fitter, more talented option than Dougie.Will give it some thought.
