When they were talking about Shaun Marsh getting yet another chance I thought of Wily.

I doubt that he would have got any sleep thinking that if they can think of recalling Marsh then Watto must also have been a chance of a recall.

Marsh and Maxwell battling it out for the number 6 position, Marsh averaging 39.33, Maxwell 40. Why wouldn't the incumbent hold his spot. How can they say Marsh stood out without a 100 ?

Not only would Watto be a better choice but Haydos and Deano would still be better than marsh. Wheel them out next week :clap2:

In saying that, at least they have picked him in his right position if they end up batting him at 6

The selection of Tim Paine is even more staggering and the dumping of Renshaw is moronic

Thank God we have a Marsh.  Two would have been better but one should be enough to beat the Poms.

9.  That's how good he is.  They should recall Swampy as well.

A tribute to the umpire Russell Evans, who has sadly died this week.

He was a county cricketer before taking up umpiring.

Mixed emotions over this.
Good to see him get runs. Finally in his best position but geez its been painful.
Should have pulled his finger out and got on with it.
Ideally we would have had 15-20 minutes at them before the break

It is only a matter of time before an Australian captain suffers the same fate that the Australians did about 10 years ago in not enforcing the follow-on against India when they got rolled.

Very risky strategy not enforcing and I'm surprised very few enforce the follow-on these days. It is an opportunity, but the talking heads on the TV and radio always know better.

Yes, bad move. It actually shows no faith in our batsmen

I think the theory about NOT enforcing the follow-on was if you were faced with that decision early on Day 3 you might not want your bowlers to toil for a long day in the sun.

Every other circumstance you DO enforce it.

Especially given the fact this is a day/night test and the decision was in the last session on Day 3 in the night.

And before we go blaming Steve Smith, I reckon the coach would have had the final say.

Interesting observation I heard today was the Mitch Marsh has been picked in the test team in Perth as a cost cutting exercise. As he lives in Perth CA need only pay his return taxi fare each day to attend the WACC, whereas if Maxwell had been selected they would have been up for a return airfare from Melbourne plus 6 nights hotel accommodation. Could save them thousands  :beer:.
