All we know so far is that you are better in Australian conditions. In a week we will know the answer in English conditions.

Well either we will be considered better or it will be neutral - based on that logic England currently aren't better than Australia in Test match cricket in any conditions



Correct

How was it a chance?

If it wasn't a no ball it would have been out. Same as if a catch is dropped, if it was caught it would have been out so it was a chance / missed opportunity. Only need 1 element that went wrong but which could have gone right to be a chance.


So basically every hit is a chance because if was up high enough and someone was there it could have been caught.

I guess every ball is a chance as the potential of a wicket is there.

Is this a world record for the most times Smith has been mentioned in the one post.

2 times he has been hit by Archer
1 time he has been knocked over by Archer
1 time he was too scared to bat in the 2nd innings.

He has batted well but he has shown small weaknesses against Archer and Leach.

You're right with the last sentence however whether due to poor captaincy from Root or poor execution from the bowlers they haven't capitalised AT ALL

The only way he should be compared to bradman is that they were both scared to face genuine quicks.

He hasn't but probably only because the time he had him scared and hurt someone else got him before he got a chance. Then he cried off for the next 3 innings.

Hardly sour grapes, I said he batted well. Are you denying that leach and archer troubled him?

ave 134 and of the 5X he got out, he sacrificed his wicket for the team 3X

I thought you knew your cricket.....looks like Bummer has more credibility.....

if you had said Broad has troubled Warner.......

I think Steve Smith walking around London with the Ashes in his pocket probably trumps that

The England One Day Team walking around London with the cricket World Cup in their hands trumps that.

I recall a certain English person on this forum saying he'd rather the ashes more than a ODI WC once. :wink:

Anyway, one thing I notice that was critical which hasn't been mentioned much, if at all. Winning the toss. Can't stress how important this is these days and Paine has won 3 from 4, unlike our last few series over there (from memory).

Im sure if he was allowed to play by the doctors he would have. No way in hell he wouldn't have been out there if he was allowed to be. The doctors word in sport is final these days, cant just defy orders and do as you wish.

And you say I have no idea, your comment is so ridiculous and untrue.

ps, Poms don't know how to get Smith out, he is taking the proverbial P I S S, everytime he batting!

Considering you've shown time and time again you don't know much about cricket you don't have a leg to stand on. You do after all think the wicket can be made to produce swing :lol: :lol:

How do you prepare a pitch for swing?

Have you worked out how the pitch would affect your team selection yet?

Do you think Leach and Archer haven't troubled smith?

Warner
Harris
Marnus
SMITH
Head
Marsh
Wade
Cummins
Starc
Hazlewood
Lyon/Siddle
