    About 4.5 months

    Still a long time, and a contributing factor sure enough.

    “114 days down and only 7 to go! It’s been a long 4 1/2 months away from my wife … but I can’t wait for her to join me in Melbourne next week just in time for Christmas!” Smith wrote in what is now an utterly heartbreaking post.

    Chance for Head and Green to lock their positions

    Wade did good for someone who should not be opening the batting

    The difference in this test is the captaincy.

    You’d think that if Wade could do it, anyone could?

    But not Joe Burns.....not Joe Burns.

    Single digit scores from Burns or Harris, doesn't really matter I guess. But Burns is so obviously mentally shot right now I think you have to get someone else in there. He is nearly running himself out because he's so desperate to get off the mark ffs. And then burns a review for a caught behind that he nicked? Like what the f**k Joe? He's cooked and what's worse, his shitty form and decision making is impacting his team more than just the shit starts he is getting them off to...

    Or, y'know, the hundred from Rahane....that's pretty important in a match where the next best score is 40 odd.

    Thats a horrible shot, once again trying to play far too square.

    Some of these blokes have had the same technical issues for years that just haven't been rectified.

    Head is good enough, he just needs to learn that you don't have to hit every ball. Has a serious desire to feel bat on ball all the time. That was an unnecessary shot
