Tim Paine complaining that the umpire should of given out Stokes LBW to Lyon, like seriously stop your whingeing, he is sounding like GIAE!
It was plum LBW but if they hadn't used up all their appeals, different story.

surely you can see what you've done there????

Yes, I said if the Aussies didn't Use up all their appeals, they would of got the wicket!

On replay, Stokes was out LBW.

whats your point?
Exactly as I believed, doesn't even know his errors. You can tell you don't follow cricket. :lol:

Usman out for Smith. Looks like Starc might get a start too.

Now just hope we win the toss (for starters), bat first and Warner to start playing his more natural aggressive style (and make more than 30) :wink:

I'd answer that question with a question, what games have you been watching?

Swing has definitely been there. Maybe not as much as previous though due to the later dates for the series.

Warner, oh dear. Another fail in second dig and I'd say he's out for last test.

3/170 not bad but need at least 400 total on this wicket

He must be done, no way he can play the last test. No one else would have been given the chances hes been given this series.

I see the whinging Pommie double standards are at play again.....
Two Australian fans ejected from Old Trafford after abusive tirade towards Jofra Archer

Among the insults shouted at Archer were “Jofra show us your passport” and other references to his Barbados heritage.

References to his heritage - sounds like possible racism to me. I guess you're fine with that.

It’s alleged the duo shouted “show us your passport” and repeatedly chanted “Barbados” towards Archer.
Whats abusive about that???


Poms are a very sensitive lot

So typical of hypocritical aussies, when they have a South African with no australian blood whatsoever, chanting that to Joffra who has an English mother. When the aussies are not cheating, they are either being hypocritical or whinging. A sad race of people, indeed.

Easy choice. The other two are cabernet boring sports.

You can't give him 3 chances and expect him not to destroy you.

The only hypocrite her is you, mi amigo.
There was nothing bad or insulting about what those aussies said to him, he needs to grow some "cogliones".
Can you imagine what will happen to him when touring the West Indies, seeing his family?
Or what about when he finally tours here, the aussie crowd will give him much more than he is receiving.

Its ok though the abuse Smith, Warner and Bamcroft received though?

Incorrect, you seriously cannot count the chance when he was out on a no-ball!
