Bah, we've turned this kid Mendis into the next Voges.

Tony Tea

Hope I wasn't out of line with my crack about Mendis never making another 100.

Lou

Our bowlers are toiling away. It all looks fairly tepid out there.

Lou

Really mucked up that catch, the skipper did. Marsh is bowling quite well too.

Lou

Absurd start but they've calmed down a little. Just a little.

Nick

Burnout. When you pull a short ball to the fielder on 0 as an opening bat in Sri Lanka on a slow pitch with less than an hour of play left. D'oh.

m0nty

Looks like this will be another series to put in the forgettery because we get flogged like Xavier boys, like that one against Pakistan in the UAE.

Bruce

Just pathetic. Utterly pathetic.

Tony Tea

Peak FTB.

philsgone

Perhaps all the left handers should bat right handed and vica versa. Might make them concentrate a little better.

Bruce

Where's the list again?

Lou

As Terry Thomas would say, "a shower, an absolute shower."

Lou

Smithy might as well bowl himself or make Marsh bowl leggies

m0nty

N'Evil's first Test duck.

Studiously Upbeat

Luckily for me I just reached my happy place and if I can regulate the intake it could stay this way throughout the next game. Go Eels!

m0nty

We're not just losing, we're getting pantsed.

We will Rise

No we're not!

We will Rise

Hayne goes out, Bevan French comes in!

We will Rise

Oz cricket just needs to find the Brad Arthur within.

Parra win out over the entire NRL.

Lou

Well, Ussie's really improved against spin, hasn't he?

Lou

All round applause for the Shrees. Ducking in the witches pond for the Aussie batsmen.

Tony Tea

It defies belief how a seasoned Test nation can be so dismal against spin.

philsgone

On the plus side, we can take 20 wickets. On the minus side, we lose our 20 for a lot less runs. That win the toss and bat first option might be the one to introduce in the third test. Would be a start anyway.
