    All these blokes going on with their sledging are pussy's hiding behind the behaviour police as they know nothing can happen to them.
    I say bring back the good old days when there were no stump microphones and if you wanted to have a big mouth you had to be able to back it up like when Stumper Rixon was giving a constant barrage to Viv Richards and the great man finally turned to Rixon and said words to the effect of "meet you behind the grandstand at 6:30".
    Needless to say stoney silence from behind the stumps from then on.

    Eddie Barlows reply =

    Geez Broads send-off for Handscomb was pretty big. Can't wait for the aussies to bowl tonight, our quicks are going to tear their heads off! There is some bounce in this pitch.

    England lucky that the rain has come.
    Otherwise they would be in more trouble

    Marsh and Paine well and truly justifying their selections. It's good to see them shutting their critics right up, I know I was one of them.

    Rain is a killer. I feel it has let the poms somewhat off the hook now. We would have had them 3 down by stumps had we had that extra 90 mins to bowl tonight.
    They are predicting rain all summer across all states unfortunately for cricket fans.

    I love it. I think it adds to the series. I wouldn't want more than one per series but love the tactical side of it. My favorite test is boxing day but the Adelaide pink ball is my second favourite on the Aussie Calendar.

    I would keep it.
    In fact I think in the future there will be more than one a year.
    Because that is what the spectators want .
    Look at the crowds .
    TV love it.

    It is here to stay.

    If we had sent back in it would be over allready.
    But we should get about 100 more runs .
    Then see how the poms go

    Why is it a ridiculous question, far from one, but typical negative merkin has nothing better to do then whinge cause someone contributed to a discussion and that’s the best you can come up with...., reason I asked was because people at work where saying that the ball does too much during the evening and big advantage to bowlers and the tes5 match will be over within 3 or so days, I was more on keep it but was out numbered that’s why I asked....
