    Langer just couldn’t f**king help himself could he. Had to get his little protege into the side somehow.

    First Bancroft straight back over Joe ‘only competent opener in Australia’ Burns, and now this.

    What a f**king joke.

    Lol Head dropped for Darsh Jr Lololololololol!!


    I read with amusement Australia’s brilliant planning and selections are the reason why we have retained the ashes. Lol what a load of donkey spunk.

    The main reason was we have Steve Smith and they don’t plus we have Cummins and Haze. Haze the bloke who was left out for that banana munching trundler Siddle. Head dropped but Warner somehow keeps how place averaging 9 and being a walking wicket up the top of the order.

    At least the England selectors have admitted that we don't even have 5 Test standard batsmen so we've dropped Roy and gone with half a dozen bit part all rounders for the 5th Test.

    You have a couple of gun quicks. We have a couple of gun quicks. But you also have the BatGod. We don't. The rest of the players on both sides minus Stokes are a shower of shite.

    On the upside Cummins will play, on the down side MMash gets a run

    On the even downer side, Wade will go up to 5.

    Although Head is up there with the also rans behind Steve Smith and Minus Lotsachange he really hasn't done that much.

    My favourite part of the Mitch f**ksack story is the part where they tell us he's 'really worked on his game'.

    Should have put in Pattinson instead of MMarsh
    Better bowler and better batter
    Only advantage marsh has is that he bats right handed

    I'd say Mitch Marsh is a poor persons Ben Stokes, but it's more like up to the eyeballs in debt and about to be sold on a slave market by the banks version of Stokes.

    Mitch Marsh averages under 26 with the bat and he actually has hair,can you imagine if he was bald?

    Extremely disappointed to read that Jason Roy has been dropped, I think the England selectors swung the axe too soon and should give him one more Test.

    Dave Chappelle is my hero for defying the odds and laws of baldness to succeed
