Get Compton back ASAP!

And that Jimmy bloke who was going to replace KP in the other Ashes, why's he not on Tour?

    What does everyone think of Aus only taking one specialist spinner to Adelaide? If Lyon doesn't turn it and the batsmen don't fire then England could have a field day, especially Cook and Pietersen with the short boundary. Johnson could be a ticking time bomb if he doesn't get his line and length sorted.

    I think finally lyon is the guy

    smith will get 2 or 3 with full tosses  :D

    plus I think baily gets dropped for the left armer.

    warner and clarke might roll the arm over.

    Swann is the better spinner in Aussie conditions, English conditions whatever. Lyon may outperform him on the day, but over an Ashes series Swann will easily beat Lyon.

    Smith ain't bad, Clarke turns the arm much less since becoming Captain and Warner can doddle but Aussies have to either go for one spinner or two.. there is no in between. But all their fast bowlers deserve a place in the team and that is their most dangerous department.. imo leave it as it is. Though if Bailey goes for Faulkner as seems likely and Watson is back bowling, that does leave the option of dropping a seamer, as you really don't need a 6 man pace attack however good they are. Imo they don't need the extra seamer in Faulkner, and if they think they can start weakening their batting, just because of one decent batting performance..

    Only one spinner at Adelaide? I can't remember it being anything but a road the last couple of year. One should be enough with Smith's pies in support. Or Clarke is he can bothered to break someone's arm legally. ;)

    Hopefully Smith should be enough support but I'm not sure that there's enough for the quicks. There was a little swing when the rain was about but since then, not too much. Clarke won't be rushing to bowl any time soon either - his backs just not up to it.

    Bailey is starting to look good after getting a life early - just smacked Broad for six to bring up his 50 :D :D

    Don't remind me!!! Swann took a screamer of a catch though, that was heading to the boundary for sure. I think we need ACF94 to come back and tell us how crap Clarke is so that he can get another triple century, we'll need it on this pitch, Johnson is going to go for 6 an over...

    I wouldn't get too downbeat, Cook and Bell look in decent touch. If either really gets going it can spark something and if it's going to happen, Adelaide is the place.

    Haha! I'm just hoping that we don't see a return to the days where most Ashes series were more or less decided by tea on the first day :D

    I want to see Australia win, but I also want to see the English remind us what they are capable of. Bell, Carberry, Root, Broad, Pietersen and now Prior have all shown their quality at times but Cook is having a bad series both as captain and a batsman. WACA is do or die for England and Johnson is going to be rearing to go on what is expected to be a traditional, bouncy, lightning fast WACA pitch.

    I hope Broad has good dental cover, because there will be lots of short stuff!!!

    No complaints as we've been handed our asses big style.       Carberry can field but even he dropped a dolly.     Root is the gutsiest guy we have out there and not phazed by Johnson in the slightest and hopefully continues in the middle order and not opener.    But yes our bowling looks terrible and batting not much better.

    With Cook hes either on or off - no middle ground and he's in one of his periods where he's totally useless.    Hopefully he can show something but I doubt it.

    The WACA Ground may never again host a Test match, with Cricket Australia and the International Cricket Council united in their belief the venue no longer meets international standards.

    In Cook's defence he has been targeted by Johnson and Harris and had to face some blistering spells of very good new ball bowling. Pietersen, Broad and Anderson have also had to face the music nearly every time they head out too. Since Lehmann took over and Clarke stepped down as a selector the leadership in the Aus camp has stepped up big time.

    Seems like he recovered quicker from his injury than they expected and played a terrific innings to win the BBL. So when Watson gets injured they take the opportunity to call him up...They wouldn't have called him up if they had had a full squad.

    "You can't make them," Holding said. "If it was simple as that you'd just send young bowlers into the gym and tell them to bowl fast. When countries do find someone with that ability to bowl fast they need to know how to deal with it, and that is why England have destroyed Steve Finn.

    "They need to know how to deal with people who have the natural ability to bowl fast - not everyone can. You can't just say everyone is going to search ... I've heard that for donkey's years, and people tried to copy us. When you get someone like that you've got to cherish it, nurture it properly from youth and make sure you take full advantage of it."

    On the topic of bowlers... one can just sit back and laugh at the Indian Bowlers. B. Mcullum is on the verge of a triple century if New Zealand chose to continue batting and India from having a good shot at winning are now thoroughly embarassed and for good reason, you just have to look at the IPL auction to see the emphasis the Indians put on batting over bowling and tbh I don't really feel any sympathy for their plight.

    South Africa's bowlers were simply outbowled by Johnson, and this series has fast become very intriguing. SA's batting needs to step up as only De Villiers is in any real form, and the big loss is Amla who is out of nick. Australia's batting is strong, but even so they aren't invincible and can crumble under pressure from Steyn and co.

    Erm, I do hope you've watched the match. Otherwise you could call Australia overrated after Laxman's 281. This is one of the best ever innings. The IPL logic is simply flawed- first, it's IPL & second, they're mostly sh*te.

    South Africa need to get their thumbs out of their arse and select their best side.

    This is more or less their best side, it's just Kallis who has retired. That leaves quite a big hole in the team, as he is arguably the best all rounder in the game since Sobers. I also rewatched THAT spell from Johnson, it was just devastating. Even batsmen the calibre of Richards, Ponting, Tendulkar, Lara and Kallis would have been reeling from those four overs.

    I'd love to know what Dennis Lillee was doing with Johnson when he worked with him early last year, as he is a completely different crickter atm. He's always had pace and unpredictability but now there's some thought, confidence and consistency in his bowling. He's scaring the runs out of batsmen.

    Brendan McCullum's batting in this match will be remembered as two of the best innings of this era. He has been absolutely tremendous, stepping up in Ross Taylor's absence and then some. NZ are winning this match far more than India are losing it.
