    Yeah right of course. Exactly what it is.
    Foxtel coverage is probably exactly what people were asking for. Sounds alot like the English coverage during the ashes that SBS used to take.

    It's pretty easy to find. Jump on Cricinfo, click on Sheffield Shield under the "key series" down the left-hand side of the page, then you're over to the statistics down the right hand side of the page. Once you click on the team stats, you get the competition stats.

    So 4 days between first 2 tests , 8 or 9 day break then 3 days break between last 2 tests . They had better hope our batsmen can bat well and occupy the crease cause that is a hard schedule for test bowlers.

    I'm guessing we are going to rotate the bowlers between tests

    Bring on the batting collapse!

    People are going to hate this too because the media hyped us up to win

    There is a good to strong chance we will get bowled out for under 200. This batting line up is ******* terrible

    Can see the debutant showing up our 'experienced' batsmen.

    Hope the kid does well tho

    How the **** is Finch even in the test team? bloke shouldnt even be in any of them on the form he is in plus he just isnt a test opener. constantly play favorites and drop the players we should be persevering with

    He has played 80 first class matches for 7 centuries at an average of 36.

    36 shouldn't even be good enough to open for Victoria let alone Australia.

    He literally needs 22 innings on average to score a century.

    No he doesn't.
    Because we are ******* shit.
    There's only 4 guys averaging over 50 in first class cricket this year. The batting depth in Australia probably ranks around the West Indies and New Zealand now.

    36
    35
    44
    39
    41
    36
    29

    Those are the averages of the supposed best 6 batsmen and WK we currently have. Only 2 of our batsmen average 40.....

    Damien Martyn was dropped from test cricket a couple times and he averaged mid 40s in test cricket.

    I'm just astonished how bad we are.

    He likes to occupy the crease. Has had some long innings in FC cricket. I honestly think with our batting as bad as it is I'd play another opener at 3 and atleast try and protect the middle order.
    So when Renshaw matures have him open and have Harris at 3.

    Liking Harris. Very composed for test Cricket. You see players like Finch come from the shorter formats and struggle. Harris has been good
