They're working as a team.  One sleeps, one deletes.

Khawaja has to go.  He isn't up to the job - simple as that.


I wonder if I can say that or will the delete police pair get rid of it?

Not sure if I can say this but it might be a good time for Jason Roy and Dave Warner to go to the pub


and drown their sorrows.  Both have had horrible matches with the bat and in the field. 


Sometimes the harder you try, the worse it gets. 



Labuschagne (pronounced Lab-us-chag-nee)  has impressed me - not with his batting so much - he played and missed early a lot -


but unlike Khawaha, he has shown John Wayne-like true grit. 




Khawaja should probably watch this on replay and learn what spine is.




I think the Poms have found a good spinner in Leach.  He's impressive.

Labuschagne gets out to a catch that clearly bounced in front of Root.


Terrible decision.  Might have been his first Ashes ton. 


Carey needs to come in like yesterday.


Just hope this opinion can stay up without it being taken down by our own spin twins.

Risking censure from those that are extremely selective in their censorship, I wonder what defence Wiley and the Cockroach


have of their favourite player - Usman Khawaja. 


Neither the President nor the Vice President of the Khawaja Fan Club have uttered a word since he forgot which end of the bat


to hold.  I guess it's tough when you don't have Shaun Marsh to pick on and your man stands ( :nowink: ) on his own. 


Gosh but they've gone quiet.   :yes:

Easy to say in hindsight, but I thought (and Geoff Boycott agreed with me) England batted too long.


I never thought we'd get 200 without Smith and it was so.


England should have had longer to bowl Australia out.  Root waited too long.


England, being 1 nil down and needing wins, needed to be bolder.

Nothing to write home about but Khawaja's first innings score was the 6th best of the completed 31 innings in the test.

So do Australia drop any of the top 3 if Smith is injured? That is the question.

After the test on Thursday, it is almost 2 weeks for the next test so do you bring someone in for a test and then drop them if they fail.

Warner has scored less than 20 runs in total so far this series but he has a previous history (no pun intended) or scoring runs. The other two especially Bancroft will be lucky to hold on. Khawaja may get a reprieve depending on Smith.

There's no way Warner will go, nor should.

I agree that Bancroft is the one most likely.

Warner gets to stay but English conditions have not been his favoured. He canít handle a moving ball
Given that langer is smitten him, langer will pick him because of his fielding  :lol: . Bancroft May play this test but surely Harris comes into he team when he fails again
Labuschagne seems to be a favourite as well, and fair enough. He seems to have plenty of grit

He played a couple of nice shots but he also played and missed at least a dozen times in that innings.


He's not up to this - mentally or physically.

Interesting that Carey has not entered discussions as Paine looks like he will stay for awhile or at least till middle of next year when Smithís captaincy suspension expires.

Gilly with all his runs was not considered to be good enough to juggle captaincy and keeping. Thus when do they look at dropping Paine as he has never scored a test hundred.

The issue is will the selectors make any changes at all if the team is not losing especially on tour.

Youíre right jeunes. Carey is a keeper who scores runs in T20.
Thereís a heap of batsmen who should be selected ahead of him.

I do however think that if smith finishes this series as he has started Tim will be lucky to see out our next summer unless he starts to score significant runs

Carey is a keeper that scored a ton of runs in the 50 over World Cup in English conditions.


Yeah, why should he get a go against almost the same bowlers he thrashed some weeks ago?


Just doesn't make sense.

I thought he played with great judgement and patience when required.  :bulb:


Plenty of players have made the tansition from the short form  - Warner for example.  Or Gilchrist  :bulb:


Tim Paine played a dreadful shot to get out in the second innings and could well have cost us the match.


His keeping has been very ordinary too.  Be that as it may, Carey could get a game just as a batsman in my book.

So that's Paine, Wade and Carey.

The 4th Test is starting to look like
 
1   Adam Gilchrist
2   Brad Haddin
3   Alex Carey
4   Rod Marsh
6   Steve Rixon
7   Matthew Wade
8   Tim Paine
9   Ian Healy
5   Barry Jarman
10   Brian Taber
11   Wally Grout
12th Man   Doug Ford

Firstly, comparing Carey to Warner & Gilly is laughable. They actually scored runs in limited overs cricket.

Carey has played 29 limited overs games and generally bats at #7. Thereís a reason for that. The 3 times heís batted up the order he failed.

He averages a pathetic 13 in T20 :bulb:

He canít even average 30 in Shield cricket :bulb:

He should never play any other position than wicket keeper when Paine steps down which will be very soon

Once Smith resumes captaincy after this series there is no way Paine will be in the side.  Either Wade or Carey, both who are superior batsmen than Paine, will takeover wicket keeping. Whether both would play in the side will depend on Wade's performances in the upcoming tests, if he makes runs he will get the nod over Carey.
In the current side I would rate only Head 6.5/10 and Smith 9.5/10, none of  the rest more than 4/10 , the bowlers are carrying the team. If Labuschagne can follow up his batting at Lords in the next test he could easily step up to the other two, but he is still unproven.
By next summer the batting line up will be nothing like that it is presently in England

Added to that Harris, Pucovski, Burns & Handscomb have all scored runs in the Australia A matches. All have scored 100s from memory. Patterson scored an unbeaten ton in his only test and FZ wants to parachute a #7 bat into the team above all of them
It defies any logical thought process   :lol:

I know a future star when I see one.


Your continued support for Burns and Handscomb in particular - both have had their chancd and failed.


Scoring runs for Aus A means what exactly?


Carey made consistent runs against this very English attack on English pitches.


No brainer.
