I have never said all countries doctor pitches. All our pitches are reasonably different, which is more than can be said in many other countries.
I will say it, ALL countries doctor pitches.

Your pitches are pretty much the same now.

You never had an offer to turn down. You wish you did though but sorry I don't swing that way.

:lol: thanks, shows my point quite well.
I don't see how.
I'm not surprised given history of your vision.
You asked a question, I answered it factually. What is your point?

The point is that australia had had many opportunities for time in the middle, SA hadn't. A doctored bowling wicket helps the team who've had more time in the middle.
So next ashes series here, you want some test matches to be played here before the ashes actually commence? Will that make it fairer? You tour, you get a practice match or two and that's it nowadays. Suck it up.
As for doctored wicket........said before.........had SA won the toss the result could have been different.
Bottom line they were comprehensively outplayed

Looks like cry baby cheater is looking at signing for Sussex for some county games. Apparently he thinks it will be an advantage to have some batting time in the middle on English wickets.

Not sure you answered the questions, but it would be simple enough if Sussex just said no.

My apologies, I have just seen your last question.

Australian pitches are generally doctored to ensure they start batsmen "friendly", then gives something for the quicks and on the final few days spin comes into it. It seems that anyone who doesn't produce a pitch exactly how australia want it they just accuse them of "Doctoring". Remember, all pitches require doctoring or they wouldn't actually be a cricket pitch.

Sussex certainly should say no but clearly they are thinking of themselves and not England.

How many days is final few days - 3,4 or more ... so based on your comment final few days it starts to spin on Day 2 ?

My apologies, I have just seen your last question.

Australian pitches are generally doctored to ensure they start batsmen "friendly", then gives something for the quicks and on the final few days spin comes into it. It seems that anyone who doesn't produce a pitch exactly how australia want it they just accuse them of "Doctoring". Remember, all pitches require doctoring or they wouldn't actually be a cricket pitch.

Sussex certainly should say no but clearly they are thinking of themselves and not England.
How many days is final few days - 3,4 or more ... so based on your comment final few days it starts to spin on Day 2 ?

How can day 2 be the final few days? Your comment of "or more" suggests you think Day 1 is the final few days.

Sydney apart, not many tests get into day 5 of late.

It's not like our pitches are all just dust bowls or all just seamers, which can't be said for some nations. At least you get reasonable variety here. ;-)
