that is true; Special Ops in Auckland Harbour went badly wrong!

How lucky are we that despite what France and the French think, it will never be a world power.

Few reality checks for Australians.

India does whatever it wants in cricket.
China does whatever it wants in trade.
France screws Australia all the time.

No Warner, no Stark, no Cummins, no Smith runs , no win. New boys did not shine, just a faint glow.

Cheers

I had Matty Wade as opener for the last ODI only.
I would not have him open in tests, regardless of his average.
Pucovski is the obvious choice for the tests, as he has already opened for Vics this year with some pretty good success, albeit on flat Tracks.
But you can only play on what you are given, and he has played well.
Still a question mark over him and the short ball.
Anyone who keeps getting hit in the head and suffering concussion will always be tested by lots of short balls.

Not sure about Wade with a test average only 31. May as well give one of the young blokes a go. Will be bad if Warner is out for the tests ...... he is such a problem for any opposition.

Stark , IMHO, just needs plenty of overs. He seemed to improve a bit last night, but I wasn't watching.

Will be nice if Smith can take his form into the tests.

Cheers

Indians did better than last Fridays game, but still lost.
For a while they were still in it, but with 30 overs gone, they still needed 204 off the last 20 with three wickets already down.
204 off 20 in a T20 game is a big score, so they were a bit behind the eight ball already.
Still managed to keep within striking distance for 8 to 10 overs, but the asking rate just got too big.
Their batting has some potency, but their bowling is a bit sus at the moment.
Australia not without its issues.
Starc was better last night, but only marginally.
Warner will be out of action for a while with that groin strain, wouldn't surprise me to see him miss the tests as well.
Despite calls for Green or Pucovski to get a run, matty bWade is the obvious choice as re-placement opener.
Henriques bowled better than I expected, so thats a bonus.
Adam Zampa has continued his recent good form, and is turning out to be a specialist ODI bowler.
Fielding was good, saved a lot of runs, and things generally on the up

The Indians only gave us 7 extras ......... I suspect ours will be multiples of that.

Indians off to a rollicking start.

Could've been worse for India ........... Warner flying and run out with a direct hit.

Aussie bowlers might be in for some stick I feel. Could be close.

And the OZ team goes 15 runs better than the last game, S. Smith another quick century, with 50+ contributions from Warner, Finch Lambshanks and a quick fire 63NO from Maxwell.
India will have to bat significantly better than the first game to overhaul this total, but they have the batsmen to do it.
Should be interesting.
