    He's a superb television salesman, the best we've got.

    I've been saying this for f**king years, but nobody would listen. I was laughed at. Mocked. Ostracized.

    'He's a orrrsie legend!'

    Ya'll laughed at me. YA'LL LAUGHED AT ME!

    He's a flat track bully - and a massive grub.

    That away average of 36 looks good compared to his recent efforts. He has one half century in his last 3 away series (15 innings) at an average of 22.

    NZ: 5, - , 12, 22

    SL: 0, 1, 42, 41, 11, 68

    IND: 38, 10, 33, 17, 19, 14

    I was just about to post the link to that article until I saw you had already done it, and say that it looks like News Ltd journos have been lurking around on this forum

    And I agree with what others have posted, about how Warner should be dropped for this upcoming test. It would be the biggest Australian team change to a test series decider since Steve Waugh dropped Shane Warne in favour of Colin Miller in the 1999 tour of the West Indies, but I don't see Lehmann et al having the balls to cut Warner in favour of Khawaja

    Love to know warner's away stats if you take our South Africa (literally his only good away area)

    looks like Pujara would give Davey a run for his money, his away average is worse

    If you drop the South African tests and it's about 28 - slapstick funny in this era - no centuries (that excludes the UAE one)

    But he'll tee off through the line in another home summer, and the CH 9 commentator will have a self-saucing session and the myth that he's a world class test opener will continue - Tarzan in Australia, even Jane might do better on tour

    only 18 tests away (30 odd for Davey) - and at least you think his style and technique might serve him well, he doesn't act like he's hitting of a tee in conditions he enjoys

    JJ's post count is 21,413, I bet 19000 of those are about Warner.

    Warner seems to have lost the fire in his belly since he got his new TV set

    and had kids

    I prefer him to be a merkin & score runs

    That would compound the issue he needs the ball hard. It's frankly his only chance the softer the ball the more stuffed he is

    Biggest myth of all time. But you will never hear a word from Lehmann about his golden boys form.
