Lol, drop the winning captain - seriously?

If anything, Marsh in for Wade, leave the rest as is.

They needed to drop Warner. How many chances can he get?

Warner won't get dropped, saying that, he will probably score a century in the 5th test..... provided Broad doesn't bowl!

He will do nothing. Just give Broad the wicket

Stoopid decision in dropping Head, the selectors should have just stuck with the same team instead of bringing in Marsh

Best bowling figures. :wink:

Thought mad not to bat first, and drop Starc for Siddle.

Almost like we are playing the junior style where give everyone a game.

His batting has been below average, he needs to make some runs.

OK, now it's too obvious.

Hey, Greasy, I bet you believe everything you read in your copy of Womens Weekly too. Haven't you figured it out yet, that people who write books & newspaper articles always add in some spicy titbits.....it sells copies. :lol:

Win home, draw away. I'll take that for as long as it accepted by the poms. :lol:

In a way, there is a positive to us losing the last test - there were many problems exposed in this series, so hopefully they are addressed before too long.

The objective is to win the series. Did you see the aussie celebrations this morning, literally celebrating failure.

We (Well the MCC) are always in posession of the urn so weird objective.

Conclusions:
Drawn series, good enough - would have taken it at start of series
Paine good media speaker, but not really future captain (too many errors, eg DRS, sending opposition in, pressure when we lost by one wicket, batting form)
Selectors - lots of queries here - Head's omission, Starc dropped for Siddle last test, persistence with Warner.
Opening batsmen - failed, simple
Positives - Smith, Labuschagne, Cummins, maybe Hazlewood but that's about it
Umpiring - not very good
Root - cheat

So you want to draw a series, not win it?

You don't care about the test rankings?
You don't care about the world cup standings?

Truly laughable, bit like aussie rules, celebrating mediocrity.

I think most people were upset about losing the semi. Didn't see any celebrations.

If you want to list everyone that has "cheated" in this series, could be a long list.

You can do better than that. Umpires were bad for both teams so would have been a weird way to cheat.

Khawaja and Warner were both caught and stood their ground.

Thinnest of edges (given out anyway) as opposed to claiming a catch that was a half-volley (given out, when it wasn't). Justice served re Warner and Usman, not with Root. There's your difference.

Root caught it. Only way he didn't was if he had deformed fingers or he had previously dug a hole in the ground to put them in.

Both (if for some strange reason you think Root cheated) then both were attempts to deceive the umpires. Aussies were quick to abuse Broad for not walking, why the hypocrisy?

Broad wasn't given out, the others were so justice prevailed.

By the way, why does Leach wear goggles when he bats, but not when he bowls or fields?
