Why do people. Keep banging on about test matches in it?

Donít slate someone who has just torn England apart then. Itís also very dull when suddenly every white ball hitter is apparently test class after a random innings.

It is a totally different format with completely different skill sets. Smith as a one day player is a different beast to smith the test player. Same as the rest of both sides

I haven't 'slated' anyone. I commentated that in this game his strike rate was lower than Tim Paines - which is correct. If you watch the post-match interview Smith himself said that it was good for the team that the umpires gave him out because he was slowing the team down. Not sure why you feel the need to fight his corner

And he hasn't torn England apart in this one day series (thread title) he's been fairly average throughout

This is one day cricket - Test cricket is irrelevant. Theres a thread for the Test series if you want discuss that I will be more than happy to agree that Smith is a brilliant test player

Stop beating the same very dull drum

I think   batting and bowling well in a couple of ODIs doesn't make you a test match player.

Again - two very different formats. Even you must find it hard to deny that Woakes is a very good ODI player for England?

Do you not think his part in the partnership with buttler allowed them to force the Aussies into a corner?

Smith showed our Lads up in the ashes. The fact heís not a hitter like we have jut shows heís not as good at white ball. To start crowing at Smith when heís just torn us apart is a bit rich. After all, this isnít test cricket so the fact theyíve lost a few one dayers wonít bother them overly

Better strike rate than Steve Smith who is 2nd only to Bradman according to the Australian press

To keep up with England at the death was an unrealistic demand with the players Australia have. They lost the game in the middle overs when Smith and Marsh were content taking the spinners for 5s without any intent to score boundaries

It is quite enjoyable watching Australia try and go about ODI batting the same way England were doing in about 2013. At least we used to win at home! :D
