Steven Smith's New Balance (NB) is not his usual shape. It looks more like a H4L bat. What do you guys think?

Well that was a paddling, my predictions gone already. That was Watto's final chance for me, I also don't think we can have the 2 left armers, Siddle will need to come in if Marsh plays. I would nearly drop Haddin as well, these aren't panic moves, they are the fringe decisions that were close in the first game but we can't afford to let it slide too long.

Watson will go. I'd bring in Cummins but they will bring in Siddle.
Haddin will see out the rest of the tour and then retire.

Australia way too arrogant and cocky. Can't wait for the 2nd test.

Australia's last three games on slow tracks: lost by 300+ runs, 200+ runs and now, 100+ runs. First two games were vs pak in uae, but shows a pattern of absolutely sucking on slower tracks.

Those WI pitches weren't the fastest and they did alright over there.
Still, I think Aussie would admit they are not the best on slow decks.

I thought England bowled as a pack similar to 2005 without the pace and fire.

Let's be honest Australia will come back all guns blazing but the same questions about some of there batsman who have never done well in England remains.

Shaping up to be a cracker series I was worried it would be a anti climax after the New Zealand series

I think Aussie were very average.
Rogers now has a real problem with squaring up.
Watson is rubbish
Haddin is rubbish
Michael Clarke has not really shown much for the last 12 months and has a problem with the short ball.

Get Warner and Smith early and England will be licking their lips.

As i said and was laughed at long time ago fragile batting line up especially in England conditions.

Root and Williamson look a class apart from any of the others so far this summer

Love how Lehmann has been moaning about how little juice was in the pitch.  Seemed like a typical Cardiff pitch to me.  Besides, there was something in it for the seamers, they just didn't have the knowhow to extract it...  Mark Wood could bowl bouncers, yet he's the shortest fast bowler on the pitch!

What does he expect, us to prepare wickets to suit Australia?

Also due to the way Warner and Smith play bowlers always have an opportunity to get there wicket early in there innings.
