Sa vs aus
« on: March 01, 2018, 08:31:32 AM »

First test today.


Bancroft gone early. Still seemed to be planting his foot. Cant help but think pressures on with renegade making runs back in shield cricket.

Seen nothing from Bancroft to suggest he will ever be able to cope with a moving ball. Looked out of his depth in Perth and Melbourne

Is it just me or is Smith really exaggerating his mannerisms today, drives me mad. It can't be natural, looks forced

I think Smith just gets in a zone, and his movements are an extension of his intensity. Probably drives bowlers mad as well but whatever works i guess.

Don't say that, England will pick Dawson for the next Ashes now.

Close of play, Australia 225-5. As they say most days, first session tomorrow will be crucial.

350 on the board for AUS - i reckon is a great 1st innings total on that pitch.

5 wickets for Maharaj and Lyon takes 2 wickets in his 1st over!!

Mitch marsh batted well and sensibly. But got out trying to moo with the tail.
Nice innings holding 96 though.


Clubbie Lyon with 2 in his first over. Elgar and Amla gone!!

All down to AB. DeKock also needs some runs after struggling of late.

No wonder AB wants to jack in the Test format. Watching AB against India and now Australia, it's like what Chanderpaul was doing throughout the latter stages of his career.

Some shocking reviews in this test.

Philander missed thaylt by inches and only Smith was interested and reviewed.

Gone next ball though.





2 very good bowling attacks, but cant help but think Australia has the better batting line up.
And yes it pains me to write that.
