Based on those figures your 3rd favourite player after Binga & Watto will replace Khawaja in the first test...

I like Renshaw. Puts value on his wicket.

When are we going to give up on the Marsh experiment? I would have played Maxwell as the all rounder.

Shocking pitch.

I remember arguing passionately with someone on here about O'Keefe. Still think he doesn't deserve his spot?

Nup. He's still a f****** pie chucker. Don't forget, Michael Clarke once took 6 for 9 over there with his left arm donkey drops.

As I said Benny pie chuckers don't average 24 at shield level.

He took 6/5 in a 6 over spell. Legitimate good bowler.

I think we argued about this 2 years ago. Fawad Ahmed kicked arse in Shield too.

There is a 2nd innings in this match. He is now expected to bring it home. If he does, I'll concede. If he doesn't...

Yeah it probably was back then.

And I was right, he deserved his chance then.

And I'd hope one of our senior bowlers stands up next innings. Give Hazlewood the ball, surely its accepted he's our best bowler by now?

You watch India bring out their next version of VVS Laxman in the 2nd dig.

I'd like to believe but I've been shattered too many time following the Aussies on the sub-continent.
My material isn't very good..Oh...and then there's the bladder problem.

I dips my lid to SOK!

He's done what many have failed to do over so many years. Amazing =D>

Special mention to young Renshaw for his efforts.

And the skipper =D>

What a dominant display. :shock: vingertje =D>

Unfortunately in this day and age of betting and sub-cotinental cricket the result wont be validated unless we can draw or win the series.

If we lose the next 3 in a canter no one will believe that this was an honest contest (we no one that has a f***ing idea - I'm sure the media will keep drinking the coolade)
