    4pm start Eastern states I believe? Meaning play will most likely go well part 11pm most days

    Should be a close series. Kiwis have better batsmen and far better and more experienced bowling attack than Pakistan, there will be no triple tons for Davey here.

    If our top order fires, in particular Smith, Labuschagne and Warner. (With a couple of Wade deadly cameos thrown in) Then can’t see us losing a test

    If the decks are bloody roads. I can see one , maybe two tests , being borefest draws

    Looking forward to this, hopefully we get some competitive cricket

    I question the need for this to be D/N though, WA tests naturally provide a prime time session in every other state/territory. It will be interesting to see what type of crowd it gets to justify the D/N fixture.

    I get they want two per season so they should have had the Brisbane one as D/N and had Pakistan play in Perth with this first test being a D/N in Adelaide.

    Is Boult likely to be back for NZ?

    I think if you need to carry a concussion sub it should be someone who has played a few tests rather than a rookie
    Can't imagine making your debut after someone has been hit in the head would be the best way to ease into test cricket

    The pitch will be the key here. It’ll be either a road or a minefield pending on who wins the toss.

    Looking forward to this at Optus, although I reckon the crowds will be lousy.

    I should be there for days 1-5.

    Im sorry mate, will be deleting these type of posts unless you run it by your partner Haynetrain for approval first, we don't want a domestic lawsuit :D


    No changes good to see. Bowlers will get a good rest
    I don't think kiwis are playing a warm up match? Probably dont need one

    Yeah not required. Both Australia and New Zealand have just had a short series against minnows.

    Wade matches up well with everyone tbh

    The Admiral vs De Levers will be worth the price of admission alone.

    Great prospect but no rush. Id play Pattinson on boxing day but that's it, same side bar injury.
