I guess it's never saved australia. 2010 adelaide - they were doing rain dances on day 5.

2013 - saved by the weather at the Oval.

Try not to be so hypocritical.

If the rain saves us here, you can blame Smith.

Yeah, silly Smith for making so many runs and getting a decent lead. How dare he!

If we get a draw due to the rain, he batted too long. How can you deny that?

Yesterday shane warne was interrupting McGrath on fast bowling technique, today he's interrupting KP on batting technique.

Err, so lets say he declares only 100-150 in front - you could well be around 5 or 6/250 by now and therefore 100 in front. Still have to get you all out and then make the runs on a cracking up pitch. Have no issue with the timing of the declaration. The point was so we might not have to bat again at all and rely on the mental and physical weakness of the English batting again.

Hold legs up to chest whilst in water, head in just underwater and hold your breath for 10 seconds. Sounds quite a task but from memory it was lesson 1, task number 1.
The second was something like to retrieve an object from the bottom of the pool within 10 seconds. Mind blowing stuff!
5 or 6 similar tasks all up and you had your basic certificate.
Then it was all the really hard stuff like diving in to the pool, swimming to the end and back without drowning - and a few more things like that - then you got the advanced certificate.
That's why we've won so many gold medals at swimming in this country. 8)

Full clothes on (jumper pants t shirt socks shoes) tread water for 10 mins then collect the item from the bottom and climb out of the pool, then get back in take the clothes off leaving bathers on and get it all out of the water. I remember doing that a long time ago for swimming lessons lol

As for the cricket it seems like it will be nothing but a draw at this stage. Cant see them getting out there today for any worthy amount of time.

I've go no problem with the rain. In fact, it can rain all it likes in Melbourne and/or Sydney too, for all 5 days.

Just means we'll have to wait a bit longer for another 5-0 though.

Getting the wicket wet and then drying it with blowers meaning there's wet spots and larger cracks.

Doctoring?

No, we call that whingeing.

Since when are you averse to a "wet spot" within a "large crack" anyway? :wink:

Doctoring I don't think so but I do think mistakes were made and the ground staff and they may have a case to answer for. The pitch is clearly not in the same condition as it was at the end of play yesterday.

Pitches rarely are the same condition after each day's play.

Clearly they shiraz up, with a leaky cover.

I still struggle to see how those blowers were allowed. Surely, the air blowed on it and vibrations from them would have affected that crack.

That said, outplayed on day 3 and 4, draw by weather would have been the wrong result.

On the positive side, army still making all the noise
