Nothing new but Warnie is teeing off on selectors.
Holy shit, I've just seen why. When looking at our batting card, I couldn't see the name P. Cummins in there. I just took it as a fait accompli that he'd be given a shot in the final dead rubber match. But no, we wheel out 30 year old Peter Siddle and give him a crack instead. Not sure if ACB, or AFC.

You do realise we won the 2nd Test by over 400 runs? At least we've shown some fight this series, unlike England's pissweak display 2 years ago.
yeah buts that's when they were doctoring pitches as though Graeme Swan was still playing. since they started doctoring pitches to suit their current attack, it's been amateur hour from our batsmen.

Didn't Siddle just sign a four year contract?

Very different conditions in the second test. Flat, dry pitch. Was like playing in Australia.

We haven't shown an ounce of fight this series, let's be honest.

Just a terrible selection decision.

It's only looking back that you realise how good the Trevor Hohns, John Benaud selection team was.
