Amazing. Would have loved to have snagged that, but it was an incredible contest.
One wug.

Very fine line between 2-0 and 1-1.
And just for a change umpiring and DRS are in the spotlight again...

EDIT: But, to be fair, Stokes played amazingly with both bat and ball.  Again.

In western lands beneath the Sun
the flowers may rise in Spring,
the trees may bud, the waters run,
the merry finches sing.

Head dropped, Marsh selected (pretty much assured a spot in the XI as AUS won't play 5 bowlers).

Not too much opposed to dropping Head I know he averages ~42 after 12 Tests it's mostly due to empty runs at home against a Sri Lankan B Team. Without the SL series, he averages ~30.

The selection of Marsh they say was for extra bowling which makes sense given the length of the series - could've gone with Neser too.

Thoughts?

Listening to The Grade Cricketer podcast as I work.

"This Ashes was 4U Maths, and Steve Smith dominated it, and everybody else did really badly, so he got scaled up to 100, and everybody else got like 30 in their HSC."

Did not expect an HSC analogy in this podcast haha. Amazing.
One wug.
