Could see this coming a mile off when Starc and co were fu**en joking around and hamming it up at the 1st drinks break
Yep, I made comment about this at the time. I remember when a drinks breaks was just that, players having a drink then straight back into the action. These days they're standing around like a group of mates having a beer at a Sunday BBQ, people laughing and joking, others giving interviews. WTF is going on? Can you imagine previous captains tolerating this?

Happens far too much. Then they all start having a sook when things slightly go against them rather than trying to find other solutions. One of the most frustrating things about this team right now is how entitled they think they are.

Feels like Paine has flip flopped between wanting to enforce the follow-on or not, so we got a lot of spin to rest the quicks, but now he's having to bowl them and we'll probably bat again anyway, so we basically just gave Yasir a generous amount of time not having to deal with the quicks.
Yep, ridiculous captaincy. 8 wickets down with a new batsman at the crease, a real chance of cleaning up, and he starts bowling spinners!!! Too much attention being given to making Pakistan bat at a certain time rather then just getting those final 2 wickets.

He must have alotta pies to make up for that workload...

Meanwhile his team is sh*t.

How you can defend overweight athletes in 2019 is beyond comprehension.
how you can pot a bloke who’s broken wicket taking records and is currently making Australia look stupid - and who actually isn’t even that rotund - is even more baffling.
