Patrick Cummins replaces the injured Starc, looks like Cummins might actually get a second Test cap...only 6 years after his first


Those 6 years = more than a quarter of his life !

Put your money on a Swepson 5-for in the 3rd Test. Guaranteed that Boof will select him to keep up the Mitch count.

Looks like the Wade/Maxwell feud isn't over yet. Wade bigging up Stonis for a Test debut in Ranchi, based on Stonis' 'superior bowling'.

Perhaps Wade should be more concerned about his own performances than those of Maxwell?
He's hardly set the world on fire since his recall, has he...

And to keep Wade looking over his shoulder, since being dropped because of his batting Peter Nevill has scored 3 hundreds in the Shield ;)

Safe to day the shield is not of the standard it was ten to fifteen years ago...

Wade's keeping has been surprisingly good so far in India. But aside from Renshaw and Smith the rest have looked hopeless with the bat.

Don't really rate Nevill at all TBH

Batting? I thought Nevill got dropped for Wade because Aus needed another (No Swearing Please) to keep the quota up after Haddin retired?

Even though he arrives at the decision through the wrong reasons, It's probably best Warner puts away the flashy shots on these decks. Best wait for Maxwell to come in show that he puts zero thought into shot selection.  ;)

Neither did I. Turns out I have the same IQ points as DW. Oh dear.

However, this now means I can switch hit everything. To the Nets!

Apparenty Ranchi pitch set to be even more disgraceful than Pune and Bangalore.

Fat chance the bloke with a ticket to day 5 is happy with that either.
