They will cop more of it and it's expected. Put the shoe on the other foot, they would hound us in their backyard.

Wish the players wouldn't go throwing themselves around in a fairly meaningless game

Steven Smith with his first century since his ban. Batted rather nicely

Dont think the booing of smith or warner will bother them overly. I wouldnt myself if I was in the crowd but they can have no complaints really. It wasnt the act of ball tampering so much as the bear faced lies to try to cover it and let a junior member take the rap.

Nothing changes the fact that both Smith and Warner are superb batsmen-theres no argument there

The Aussies could make it far if they both fire.

They will do this to almost every team in the tournament. No mercy.

I note from the Cricinfo report that Root was bowling a mixture of offies and leggies - indeed picking up one of his wickets with a deceptive leg-break.

I was mildly intrigued as I wasn't aware he could mix it up like this, and also that he wasn't bowling much (if at all) due to a suspect back.

Did anyone see the game or see him bowl? was this actually the case?

Root bowled mainly leg breaks.

This is brutal hitting from Dre Russ - about time he got some overs to bat

Looks like KL Rahul has cemented the #4 spot with a brilliant century..

Still seems ridiculous that Pant couldnt get selected over Shanker or Karthik

Agreed, think he is leagues above both of them personally. Especially after a decent IPL
