I'm sure there will be some excuse for this one.
West Adelaide Soccer Club president Alex Alexandrou said the club was still in a position to be playing and training at the new ground either by the end of the 2015 season or in 2016.

I believe so, been quite a few other nationalities though.

Yeah, the Kiwis have been propping the Aussie film industry for decades.

Batting average of 0 so far

I guess he can only improve (and at least took a wicket) :wink:

What's the lowest ever crowd to watch a test? Surely this one would be up there, when the camera scans to a crowd shot, at best it's been a couple sitting by themselves with hardly anyone else in sight.

Behind some of that glass is the air conditioned bar. I know that's where the England fans are when we play there.

Makes sense. Still seems like it's a ghost town (despite probably having some of the best indoor facilities going around)

Seen bigger crowds at a Div 9 SAASL match.

I think Australia might struggle to win a test in the next two years. Might sneak one in v India at home, but otherwise team looks very ordinary at the moment. Maybe I'm over-reacting and the return of Smith might help down the track, but one wonders how much damage has been done.

Do you think Warner will ever be allowed back in, especially if Australia cops a few bad losses?

Hard to say, not being privy to all the internal "feelings" of the team are about him.

The openers have done ok this test, so a lot will depend on their form moving forward I suppose

Seen being the appropriate word.

Just because you can't see them, doesn't mean they're not there.

Could say that about AO (members tents behind western stand). Usually heaps there, many won't watch a ball of the day's play (not counting tv screens around the area).

If these two stay there until lunch, this could be an interesting finish.

Are Pakistan out of reviews?

A good draw (if there is such a thing). Pakistanis sure scored the bulk of the runs in this test. :wink:

Lucky the game is on "neutral" turf, otherwise he could have been in strife. :)

I wonder if both batsmen could have been run out by getting the ball to the other end and knocking them bails off also for the one where the 2 batsmen where standing in the middle having a chat. :?:

Once one batsman is out, the ball is dead, so not possible. Its not baseball. :wink:

Silly thing is the "saffer" that got out in the Oz first innings, I did myself once playing indoor cricket many, many years ago. My excuse was I was high as a kite at the time though.
