    I find it excruciating watching and listening to the channel 9 sucks interviewing the guys in the dressing room... Absolutely excruciating...

    Yep a plodder lol.


    Still reckon injury free he could be the best of the lot, when he isn’t contjnally instructed to bowl short pitched rubbish.

    Great to see things were kept ultra classy and dignified with the stage backdrop for the presentations - FMD

    Cummins looks the most complete of them - at least the sort of fast bowler I prefer to watch, he has many weapons - Starc and Hazelwood are fine bowlers, You're right about the short bowling, just dumbass stuff imo, they're better bowlers than that.

    Would be terrible for the rest of us, and great for you, if Pattinson could also get (and stay) fit

    Unfortunately I reckon Patto is done, just quietly. 5 months off 28 years of age, shocking injury history, no return date at this stage....he might come back for a few games here and there but as a front line option he's cooked.

    Be a real shame - but there's hope, Lillee came back... even Cummins

    That said, Pattinson has a Shane Bond appearance to him

    Not a fan of the sprinkler?

    Players will do what they do, seldom are they classy on any side - those stupid hands were Ch 9 or worse cricket Aust...

    You're right it was shit. But meh. It's for merch purposes and that's the classless part.

    Comes to the middle.. scores his 50.. doesn't come out again... pretty poor display from Root I reckon. I know he's sick or whatever, but that would have been the perfect teaching moment for his team, show them that he is willing to put it on the line.. Instead, a pretty tepid finish

    Graeme Smith came out last man down with a broken hand against Mitchell f***en Johnson!

    There's a big difference between a busted hand and fluid leaking from various orifices....
