    Indeed. Overnight score was honours even at best, and the Australian line-up has only ever been one good ball to Smith away from a train wreck. It is not like the poms don't have swing bowlers too...

    Can't blame the deck for poor lines and lengths, or spilling catches. Looking at the swing Marsh is getting, Broad might well have ripped through the Aussies. Not sure batting last is a good idea...

    One of those tough ones...lost it as he went to try, but if it went anywhere it went backwards before he fell on it. No leeway over the line though.

    Made good on it within the minute anyway.

    Don't have much time for RA (in case anyone was in any doubt), but got to give them props for the free stream. Even have sideline cameras and all.

    Not really. Last weekend would have only really seen three or four players you'd call local. Which isn't to say that if it were how it worked a few of the others might not have come to WA as a way to...

    My personal opinion is that they should be two different squads, because they should be two separate teams playing in two very different competitions. They could leverage off the same administrative...

    Whether that is true or not in the long term, it was always going to be the case in the short term. We'll see what we see in time, but for the moment can only wish the lad well.

    Ah well, there's a shock. It was always thin edge of the wedge, just as opening the door on anything tends to be. They were 6th in the rankings when they introduced the rule, and they are 6th now...

    Australia choked at the death, but that is why Test cricket. You'll never get a rollercoaster match like that in any other form of the game.

    Yes, look how well it works for the Pacific Islands... ;)

    TBH, I think it's where the Wallabies will end up. But frankly, hard to care; no business of ours.
