He's had 8 one dayers and averages 20, guess he's due?
seems like Boult and de Big Man are having fitness tests - still in doubt for first test...
All good...now tell me your useless opener is playing?
Raval is a dead cert
Really looking forward to this series. New Zealand have a cracking side which will be a true test for us. The Pakistan series was pretty meh.
So Adam Lyth won’t be the worst opener we’ve seen on our shores!
They'll fall in a complete heap and be no threat. Its the NZ way
Boult is a big deal. Without him, our attack is toothless and incomplete.
I am over Matt Henry in Tests
agree, would much rather see Kiwis at full strength
Yeah I think the NZ attack may struggle outside night time in Perth
Though they do tend to come up with clever tactics.
That's when Wade was a donkey wicket keeper,now he's a specialist batsmen extraordinaire
I think you’ll need to play Ferguson, especially on the drop-in in Melbourne. You need to force the pace there. He and Boult will be vital to any success you have. I can’t see Southee or Henry doing much outside of twilight with the pink ball.
I am very interested to see how Wagner goes. I had initially thought he’d not do well on our decks, but it occurs to me that his medium pace bumper barrages could actually work - the outfields are so huge and our batsmen will have faced very little like it. He could get a few blokes caught on the on side who don’t get enough on the hook/pull due to his lack of pace. There’s certainly no bowler like him in the Shield, so they won’t have seen anything like it.
Speaking of the Shield - I am absolutely gobsmacked that Will Somerville didn’t even make the squad. You’ve got a bloke with five years of Shield experience, who was Lyon’s understudy at NSW on the SCG and you don’t even want him in the playing group? Absolute madness. Santner will be eaten without salt if he’s your front liner over here.
Adam Lyth never played Test Cricket in Australia!
and one of the worlds best fielders...
Agreed good sir
Look, Locky knows about as much about cricket as a Kalahari bushman knows about glass bottles
40 degrees forecast for Day 1
40 degrees is a piece of cake for an alpha male like Wadey bruh
I expect to see Wadey rocking the sweater vest in the afternoon session.
Ian Chappell used to don an extra horse blanket for every degree the temperature rose over 30, just to show how f**ken tough he was
