Or maybe it goes to show that when your opener scores centuries you win alot of games?

So basically no centuries recorded by australian players mean anything between 1995-2008 because we won most games?
of course they do. But only the ones made overseas against good teams count

Joking, having a quick look the main test batsmen during that 00's golden period they had a pretty good rate of hunderds outside Australia

Gilchrist 10/17
Langer 8/23
Pointing 18/41
Hayden 10/30
Martyn 9/13

How the fu** does a west Aussie only score 4 centuries at home in a 67 test career. Nuts.

Holy shit the MCG pitch was an absolute minefield in VIC v WA today. Play suspended with good reason.

Yeah why would they play in that? Pitch should be so flat that both sides make 700.
Would hate for batting to be difficult


How about instead of playing on the front foot they play on the back foot like batsmen used to when there weren't helmets around?

Somewhere in between 700 run innings and old man Siddle being able to clock people in the head just short of a good length would probably be ideal.
