Tim Paine has resigned as Australian Test captain as allegations of a sexting scandal while he was a Tasmanian state player emerge.

Cat among the pigeons time !!!  Now the question will be ........ does he still get picked as Australia's best keeper ??

I would take the opportunity to recruit a new keeper, Inglis? Carey? , and I would also give Smith the captaincy for the Ashes series.

Cheers

Seems like Cricket Australia was aware of the situation when it happened, but decided that all was OK.

Now it isn't ....... because the details have been published ???? Doesn't look too great for Cricket Australia  ....... resignations maybe ? Yes I'm kidding, of course the CA officials won't resign.

Situation is pretty dirty.

Smith to captain for the Ashes is my guess.

New Zealand spinner Ajaz Patel has become only the third bowler to pick up all 10 wickets in an innings in international cricket, achieving the feat against India in the second Test at the Wankhede Stadium.

Key points:

  • Ajaz Patel's 10 for 119 is now the third best set of bowling figures in Test history
  • Anil Kumble, the most recent player to take all 10 wickets in an innings, tweeted , welcome to the club
  • Patel dismissed both Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli for ducks
 

Mumbai born left armer Ajaz, whose parents emigrated to New Zealand in 1996, added six wickets to the four he took on the first day on Friday to finish with figures of 10-119.

The 33 year old joined England off spinner Jim Laker (1956 against Australia) and India leg spinner Anil Kumble (1999 against Pakistan) in picking up all wickets in an innings.

Boxing Day test has started

According to CricViz, this is the first time that Australia have won the toss and opted to bowl in a Test match since the Oval 2019.

It is the first time they have done it at home since the Boxing Day Test against England in 2013 at the MCG.

Australia won that Test by 8 wickets, a 116 from Chris Rogers and unbeaten 83 from Shane Watson getting Australia over the line. Mitchell Johnson was player of the match with figures of 5/63 and 3/25.

 The decision by Pat Cummins today ends a run of 19 Tests in which Australia have elected to bat after winning the toss in matches played in Australia.

Strewth, what a total shambles for the Poms and Joe Root. Scotty Boland has probably the best test debut ever for a bowler.

Will be interesting to see who the selectors choose as bowlers for the next test ......... there will be several very disappointed players.

Well, that is a first. The Boxing Day test over before the first Sydney to Hobart yacht is in Constitution Dock.

Australia has retained the Ashes on just the 12th day of the series, bowling England out for just 68 on day three of the Boxing Day Test at the MCG to win by an innings and take a 3 to 0 lead in the five game series.

Debutant Scott Boland was the hero on the third morning, dismissing Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow, Mark Wood and Ollie Robinson to finish with the unbelievable figures of 6 for 7 from four overs in his second Test innings.

Correction.  of the modern era . Since kevlar and carbon fibre and the era of the Maxi yachts. The eary post war sailings were lucky to get to Hobart before the New Year Eve celebrations kick off.

(I remember as a kid growing up in Hobart, the reception given for the stragglers that got in close to midnight on NYE !!)
