Don’t understand Paine’s decision to bowl first or the selections TBH.
And then there's also the fact that we have a slight tendency in any given game to collapse at any point of our innings, i went out at 125/2 and Root seemed to have 9 lives, what happened ?
Yip, just start praying for rain again, we're not even good at that and we're in fcking England!
I still think it was a poor decision to bowl first - albeit the pommie middle order has let Paine get away with it to some extent. But the pitch looks like it will be difficult to bat on fourth dig so we’re going to need a decent first innings lead.
Overall, it seems to have been a strange day’s play. Poor decision at the toss, some poor selections by us, poor fielding, and poor batting. It has the feel of an end of long summer match.
Walt has no interest in cricket, Kenny. You only see him on this thread when he thinks he sees an opportunity to have a dig at me - someone he pretends to be ignoring.
He is, of course, poorly armed for a battle of wits on any thread, but whenever he appears on this one he resembles a retard with a potato gun.
There will be no end to the problems afflicting mankind until economists become rulers, or, by some miracle, rulers become economists.
