    Head skips down the pitch and bats the ball away for a single, and Kohli's going off his nut for LBW. :rolleyes:

    If they do then Gavaskar will be out in the media talking about how everyone is just not used to Indians not being "meek". He's been using that line since the 70's, but apparently we're still just stuck in a colonial mentality or something when criticism is sent the BCCI's way.

    That's what I meant by "authorities". I meant "officials" :)

    I love to watch Kohli bat, but the rest you can deal me out of.

    I'd love to see a cameo Starc 50+ right now.

    Pretty short of options though, plus Finch didn't set the world on fire during the last Sheffield Shield either.

    Maxwell is a terrific fielder as well.

    I don't rate Maxwell all that highly either so when I'm suggesting his recall then things have gotten pretty desperate.

    Hopefully Head doesn’t run out of partners here, deserves to post a big one

    Yep, this is it. I could sit and watch Kohli bat and thoroughly enjoy it, but the rest of his package just annoys the hell out of me.

    It's getting to the point where thawing Watson out of retirement is almost an attractive option. I'd legitimately have more confidence in him even now than I have in Smarsh.

    He wasn’t that wide of the crease. The initial angle wasn’t angled in, ie out of the hand it looked very wide, them swung heaps and then seamed.... I’ll try a post a pic

    I could even respect the over the top aggression if he kept it on the field, but he has a habit of going to the press when he gets it back, which makes it seem more like petulance than passion.

    How close to the Indian first innings score do we realistically reckon we can get here?

    Wade is more deserving of a recall based on form in the last 12 months than Maxwell.

    Unless we need a specialist fielder I couldn’t care less about that given our dire situation when it comes to our batting stocks.

    And I get lambasted for slagging off one innings out of 10 SMarsh.

    Warne has a lot of faults but that's a great thing to say to new team mate.

    I still think we can get close to being even with them. Our tail can wag as long as head sticks around.

    Question if I may. Why is it that the only possible changes are to juggle the order to keep finch in when it is not deserved or to bring in Maxwell. Victorians both. Plenty of bias being shown.
    There are other states folks. We need to look to the future and that does not include marsh, finch or maxwell. Paine is also a stopgap. The older guys have had their chance. Go with blokes with a few aeasons in shield under their belt and pump skills and mental strenght into them. Rotating failed batsmen because they got 100 last week solves nothing.

    Oh okay.. strange. I heard from the horses mouth that it was rye a few months ago, that's the outfield I'm talking about.

    On Finch, after his showing in the UAE it's not reasonable to drop him, even though he absolutely didn't deserve the call-up in the first place. It's annoying, but it would set an even worse precedent to put anyone on the chopping block after doing well then failing once regardless of wider context in my opinion.

    Yawnnnnnnn "Kohli testimonial #50 from the commentators today". They're obviously paid extra for everything they say about him, and each time he's shown on Kohli-cam.

    Why does kohli get so much praise for his over the top celebrations and Warner got blasted for his over the top celebrations
