I see Warner's back to being a chmapion again according to Langer .... no he's not, for ever more he'll be known as Stuart Broad's bunny.

Also, the authorities dish up another concrete pitch for a first class game and ... geez all of a sudden we have lots of batsmen capable of scoring lots of runs.

I watched the game in full. The Oz girls are a classy outfit, though they did drop two catches, one of them a sitter.
Attapathu has now got 7 of the eight top innings in ODI's for her country, as well as the two top T20 innings scores.
And yet she has not been offered a contract in the WBBL, which I find rather surprising.
Someone should sign her up quick smart.

I watched the highlights earlier. Our women are just far too strong across the park.
Attapattu played beautifully for her century. She really is the stand out player in what is an ordinary team.

Healy has played exceptionally well. A wonderful series for her. If she and her husband Mitch Starc have kids they will have quite a pedigree.

An Alyssa Healy century helps Australia cruise to a world record 18th consecutive one-day international win by thrashing Sri Lanka by nine wickets in Brisbane.

It must be a hard day at the office being a bowler in top class limited overs cricket. Aaron Finch broke some sort of record with his 188 against Qld yesterday, Usman belted two big centuries in three days and Ms Healy went on a total rampage. The only way not to be belted is to bowl rubbish. Also it just gives an unfair advantage to players who throw the bat through the line of the ball. Neither Finch nor Usman show off too much if the bowlers are given half a chance (though Allysa Healy does appear to be more of a Matty Hayden then an Aaron Finch)

Just watched the Healy Girl hit the highest T20 score in womens cricket. 148NO.
Not only can they play cricket, they are less aggressive, more sportspersonlike, but they are much better looking.
Two scores above 200 for a few wickets each time.
they are a long way ahead of the rest.

As I have been a captive market sitting up in rehab after getting a new left knee, between being interrupted by the nurses constantly doing obs, I have been able to watch most of this last test.
We were outplayed. Oz players looked tired, but gave their all.
Mathew Wade played extremely well, both of his centuries justify his selection.
There has been much made of the DRS system.
One of the reasons that England got significantly more LBW decisions was because they bowled a fuller length.
Nbut we got the ashes, which was the main aim of the game.

It was Paine's call I'm sure. Even Langer said it surprised him. I like Paine's style, he's a cool customer, but his DRS judgement is appalling.

All skippers make a mess with the bat v bowl thing on occasions. Ponting's famous "we'll have a bowl" in England and Nasser Husseins "we'll have a bowl (in Brissy iirc) when we put on 2 for near 400 I think spring to mind.

I think they are using the Duke ball in shield this year so I hope it sorts out some of the better players of seam bowling.

Yep, B , it was an unholy mess. Don’t know if Payne made the decision himself, but he has to take the blame. In the end we were lucky to retain the Ashes.
So, if Pucovski, Renshaw and Burns can fire in the first few Shield matches, they should be able to crack the team. There’s certainly a few places up for grabs ......... of course they will have to bend to Langer’s will in order to have any chance.

Cheers

After electing to bowl, we got the deserved result. A 3 day break and poor Hazlewood and Cummins were out there again. And willfully ensuring we would bat last with our poor batting group was ill thought out.

Our 1st innings flopped and they were bowling...again. They looked tired. Smith comes back to Earth and we look ordinary. Thankfully Wade stepped up but it was futile from the start. I gave us next to zero chance of winning or saving that test. All too predictable.

Harris single handedly lost some very important moments, maybe the series win. He was not alone, but his input was critical. Crucial dropped catches ( ie Stokes in that innings) Denly in this test on zero who then scored 94, throws to the wrong end with England 9 down in Leeds and awful batting with about 9.5 average. If he keeps his place I'd be very disappointed. He may look better when the ball is not seaming and swinging but then again most players do! He's not good enough to open against quality bowlers.

Sticking with Warner for so long also a mistake. He has been a wonderful opener and deserved some slack, but he's a shot duck right now. One of, if not the worst record by an opener in the history of test matches.
