    Happy 21st Matt Renshaw.
    Guess for him it's the offseason, time to work on some chinks in the armour. Still all in all a good first up tour to India. One of the positives to come out of it.. Stood up where others are still wondering what happened.

    They wont drop Davey on our home pitches, Smarsh should go, he well past his use by date.

    The big question for me is what will happen to Oozie ?

    Had a huge summer and gets dropped.

    I'd suggest Wade. Into a bottomless pit.

    Runshaw came back to the pack in the last Test, but they all pretty much failed there. Even the best have off games.

    Rather impressed with his development, he was one who I thought would really struggle there but he outperformed most of the others, particularly Mr. Teeny.

    Can we clone Smith, 499 runs at 71... FMD!

    For a kid, I thought he did A-Ok.

    What did Warner do again? Shaun Marsh...with all that sub-continetnal experience?

    Yeah. I think he hit the wall a bit at the end of the tour but he's 20 (or 21 now), playing tests 7 and 8 in a very short space of time from when he got called up. Gets a bit of a break now. Very impressive cricketer.

    This thread gave Renshaw dire wolf aids, and now he knows he's a Pom.


    He's done.

    Is that the AIDS that a dire wolf would get, were they not extinct, or is it a particularly dire case of regular wolf AIDS? It's an important distinction

    Wtf? If ever there was a player to show a little loyalty to, it was this guy? Good last summer, and showed some promise in Asia, and they dropped him as soon as they could..

    Go back to the shield and score 600 million runs and he'll be back before you know it.

    Or change his name to Matt Marsh and he'll be back next week.

    Steve Waugh was 68 years old before he scored his first century,we shoulda stuck with this young kid for at least another 200 tests

    Cameron Bancroft rocked up to training and the selectors were shocked at his small levers. Is already on thin ice apparently.

    If Warner is injured, do they pick Renners?

    Or do they try and get Chris Rogers out of retirement?
