whats people’s thoughts on the top 3 battling line up for the ashes? Warner’s availability and Uzzie’s hundred today makes it pretty hard to pick a team.

To be fair, I've got no idea but what a good problem to have.

We've been bitching about our batting depth for ages, now with the emergence of Patterson, Head and Harris we have options.

Some good signs Spider.. but to put it in perspective Tom Latham averaged about 150 against the Sri Lankans for NZ. Its a very weak attack
However it would have done the confidences a lot of good and you can only play what's in front of you

a worry is that your top order failed twice in this game to the new ball, and you wont get away with that too often in soap dodger land playing for the ashes. Not when their seamers are of a much higher quality than Sri lankas

Anyone else see the finish to the Saffas v SL test last night? 78 to win with 1 wicket in hand and SL get up. Great innings from Perriera. The bloke batting 11 for SL wasn’t good enough to get out. Fair dinkum looked like he’d never picked up a bat before. Made Jim Higgs look like a legit alrounder.

Overtakes a record that fell against our favour.

Made Chris Martin look like Garry Sobers.

Astouding innings from Perreira. Smoking sixes to all parts against the best fast bowling attack in world cricket on their own deck.
