Unlike most of the Eastern States batting, Sean got out having a crack.

One commentator said Ashwin, the spinner for India, had completed a university degree earlier in his cricketing career.
 I want to know who was the last Australia cricketer to complete a university  degree, ? I cannot come up with anyone in recent times.I do not mean a “Mickey Mouse” degree in marketing or sales but a degree in enigineering, medicine or law etc.Maybe a teacher who did  a combined  Education / Mathematic degree.

Not sure what the point of Bubba's question was.

But

"He is a qualified commercial and instrument-rated pilot, completing a bachelor's degree in Aviation from the University of New South Wales before he made his Test debut. He attained his basic pilot licence before his driving licence."

Yep, he played a brain dead shot. Chased a wide and got rewarded

Anyone who’s played the game at any level knows you don’t slash at that shite.
He got what he deserved and sadly the team suffered

Bad balls often get batsmen out.  You mustn't have been watching cricket very long.

And apart from the Sth Aussie, no bastard got decent runs. 


But let's pick on Sean Marsh.  'Cos we're idiots.

So why don't you pick on Finch?  3rd ball duck and can't make a run.


Why don't you pick on Hapscomb's wimp dismissal? 


Khawaja's pissweak attempt?


Marsh tried to hit a bad ball as it deserved.  So fkn what?

Umm, I did comment on Finch. T230 hacker shouldn't be playing test cricket.
Handscomb batted very well, unlike Marsh and then, as you said, played a very poor shot
Usi got a ripper of a ball after doing what Marsh couldn't do

Main criticism  of the day was the lost art of rotating the strike

back to stats ?

This has left a man who has befuddled so many in the cricketing world because of his inconsistency with only 163 runs at 12.5 in his past 13 innings since his 156 against England in Sydney in the New Year's Test in January.  ( from the SMH )

A closer examination reveals major issues, for he has failed to reach double figures in his past six innings (top score of seven) and has only done so twice in his past 10 knocks. Indeed, he has become the first Australian top-five batsman since 1888 to be dismissed for single figures six times in a row.
(from the SMH)

He averaged 3.5 in two Tests against Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates and only 18.37 in eight innings in South Africa during the tumultuous tour there in March but saved his spot with strong form in the Sheffield Shield and a century against the Proteas in a one-day international in Hobart (again)

Marsh has a modest Test average of 35 but this drops to only 22.76 in 13 innings in the prime batting spot, compared to 42.54 with two centuries in 22 innings at No. 5 and even 38.55 in 10 innings as an opener.
more.....................

I remember when Greg Chappel couldn't go a yard in the 50 over game.


About 6 ducks in a row.  He wasn't much chop either obviously.


I thought the Test team was mainly picked from Shefield Shield results?


If so - and I'm sure it is - Marsh picks himself. 


Merry fkn Christmas.

Let's see the usual suspects have a go at Khawaja for a completely stupid shot.

219 need with 6 wickets in hand.   :chin:


Both batsman look comfortable but they'll have to get most of them you would think.


If this was a one dayer, you'd think this total was easily gettable.


Why does it look much harder in Test cricket?

There seems to be a lack of patience from both side’s batsmen. I wonder how much can be attributed to the overall nature of cricket these days with a reliance on 20/20 and higher contracts from 20/20 comps for quick scorers.
