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.
He can't even trust Warner to get through an over.

Siddle will come good in this innings, I reckon. Just a bit of an off morning. He'll go back to his best later in his 2nd or 3rd spell (I hope)

Let's be real here, this is the last test Siddle will ever play.

Without a doubt.
Maybe although I’m pretty sure I’ve said that three times already over the past couple of years.

You’d think with Jhye Richardson coming back into the frame once his shoulder gets right he’d drop behind another bowler. Can never be certain that one or all of these bowlers won’t break down in the short term future though.
