Australia needs 10 runs an over

Taylor: "Australia pretty much need to make sure they hit a run off every ball. And they probably just about need a boundary each over too."

...........

We need a commentary mute button.

That's a nice team.
It'll be a shame if something happened to it.

Why does anyone not just mute Ch 9 and have Grandstand on for the sound instead? Or just turn the sound off entirely and make up your own commentary?

Nice. Now just bowl three decent balls with no effort, let them pump them for six if they can, just make sure they're not no-balls or wides because they're trying too hard when they no longer need to, and they're home.

Good night Australia.

e: Okay not all three but still.

How is Australia's side full of poo poo merchants while Maxwell watches from home? Oh, yeah, Smith thinks he should train better, that's it.

Someone tell the commentators that this isn't The Ashes and that The Ashes are over and that we can stop talking about The Ashes during the ODI series.

Australia bowling 13 wides and then that period with White and Smith hosed them.

What is the equivalent of smashing them in the nets but about training hard, that is why White gets picked

Partially? Surely you'd pick Maxwell if you didn't have idiot reasons for not including him and going with White instead.

Also England faced a bit more than 52 overs to Australia's 50.5 or something, thanks to Australia's on target pace attack and ability to keep up the pressure when they get into the lower order (lol). Those extra 7+ balls were the difference in the end (also White).

Alex Carey's one innings looked much better than anything Paine tried to do tonight. Fewer old farts that can only hit fours or run 1s and more guys that can run 2s and 3s imo

Pretty much the same squad for Australia to go to South Africa. Jhye Richardson is in, Bancroft and Handscomb both retained in the squad. Jon Holland is going as a backup spinner but is largely there to bowl in the nets. Unless someone gets injured it is hard to see them changing the XI from the Sydney test

Ahahaha. From cricinfo:

Harkaran Singh: "The importance of 3/4 competitive warm-up or tour games becoming more evident. Every tour should start with at least 8-10 days of tour games with competitive home teams. ICC should start penalizing the home teams for not providing competitive teams or not preparing adequate pitches "

They've played more than 3/4 games and have got worse. What's your excuse now?
