That's the point, though. As I said in the last Test, all it took was a horror toss to potentially cost us the series if we didn't try to win last match as compared to simply not trying to lose like some suggested.This is flat deck and no way the same as last test, insane we decided to bowl first.
He can't even trust Warner to get through an over.First we pick Siddle and Marsh, and then Paine tells them we're having a bowl. Just dumbfounding. Did Paine not trust his openers to get through a session?
This pitch will be a belter to bat on after lunch and England should be looking at 400 plus.
