    As limited as Watson was in test cricket he still is an all time great in ODI cricket. Would go close to making our best ODI side of all time. His numbers are phenomenal. Had a year/2 year period in test cricket that Marsh would only dream of

    Bedders, did he have back issues? Can't remember. Jamie was highly skilled in both codes.

    You obviously don't like Langer , but FFS give him a chance as coach.

    Nonsense. WA were woeful in the Shield under his watch.

    He campaigned for the job and got it ahead of better credentialed coaches, eg Gillespie.

    I have seen nothing to suggest he will be successful.

    Australian cricket might not be in the best possible shape at the moment, but this morning of Test cricket has taught us one thing: never underestimate India's ability to crumble away from home.

    Two highlights from todays play would have to be Uzman's catch and the run out to end the days play.

    Pity Langer did not need Victorian advice that Fink is NOT an opener. The

    Adelaide always turns it on for the cricket. So many good days of cricket I can remember from Adelaide Oval. Something about the place that brings out some good matches I reckon. Size of the ground and the kind of wicket produced would be a factor I assume... Can be a bit of a road but there's enough there for the bowlers and if it gets to day 5 it does crumble more than you'd expect I reckon. Not Sydney levels but the seamers can usually have some fun out there early on days 4 & 5.

    WADR his record down the order in the last couple of years is very good , so blame the selectors. I've never been a wrap on him , but it's not his fault.
    Interesting to Maddinson getting a ton for the Vics on debut and Maxwell in the runs as well.

    Look I’d be batting him at 5 and getting rid of Marsh. However personally I don’t see him being a long term test player. The shot today was appalling.

    The Victorian coach and selectors were proven correct. He is not a red ball opener.

    Marsh is a shocker. He will probably make a score in the second dig to prolong what has been a lamentable career.

    I note the Vics carted Marsh around the park.
