    Pant should open his mouth when the ball is knicked he has more chance of catching one than he does with his gloves.

    People don’t like Paine because Warne told them he was no good

    This Test, incredibly, is not over yet.

    There's a case to be made that Australia's nos. 8, 9 and 10 are just as good as half of the top 6 at scoring tough runs.

    So if they can somehow muster a 3-figure leader then a lot of stranger things have happened.

    Don’t try and blame lockdown for our shit performance Lalor. If they were that worried about being away from their family they wouldn’t have been playing in the IPL.

    Steve Smith fails a couple of times and they want a coronal inquest.

    Warner and Smith would welcome that news with joy. The SBW mask makers will be devastated

    Green should bat for the average here. At worst, a good chunk of time in the middle will be great for him

    Why is Steve Smith failing? He’s coming in at 2/30 or 40 with the weight of the world on his shoulders to fix it. Problems are at the very top of the order.

    Paine's clearly being judged through the lens of history and time, rather than the status quo.

    In the modern game, he's a good keeper. Compared to the past, he's pretty shocking.

    The mens Australian Test Team should call themselves the Renegades.
