Test Match Cricket


#4661

Not even Marshy could save them.


#4662

Maybe they need two Marshes.


#4663

Stumps on Day 2 in Perth. Australia 326 India 172/3

Good recovery from India from 8/2.


#4664

Kohli well set.


#4665

Kohli’s a complete nutter.
He’s standing over 2 metres from the stumps for the quicks. And hitting them.
He is tremendous fun altogether.

Australia’s first innings was exactly what this team needed, practically everyone scored, they dug in and dug out scores.
The first test was excellent, this is shaping up just as good.


#4666

What’s the new pitch like compared to the WACA?


#4667

Was supposed to be a green top, but not as fast as the traditional Waca, though the Waca has been about as fast as Luke Shaw turning for the last few years.
Much controversy about the CA closing off one of the shaded areas in the stands durimg a test wherr temps are approaching 40 degrees. Pure cost cutting, pure bastardry of the paying punters. The attendances have been shithouse
Whuch isn’t really surprising given the circumstances.
But I have to say I like the look of this Aussie team. I didn’t think I’d watch any if this summer, but they are becoming a very likeable bunch, young and enthusiastic. Hopefully Warner will never come back to posion them with his toxicity.
Smith? Dunno, they seem to be coping without him.


#4668

Is Bancroft back soon?


#4669

Pretty soon but unless he scores a shitload in the shield, he hasn’t a hope of getting back in the test side.


#4670

Who’s taken over his job with the sandpaper?


#4671

Stumps on Day 3 in Perth. Australia 326 & 132/4 India 283.

Australia leading by 175 runs. Nicely poised.


#4672

That’s six centuries Kohli’s scored in Australia.


#4673

They claimed a ball that didn’t carry to get Kohli out.


#4674

Same oul aussies.


#4675

Did you actually watch it or just dping the same old?


#4676

Australia level what has been a very good series so far with a 146 run victory in Perth.
Sets up what should be a cracking St Stephens day test match.


#4677

Dialing it in pal.


#4678

Boxing Day test.


#4679

Cheated to do it. Back at it. Same old aussies, always cheating. :joy:


#4680

What are you blathering on about?
