Last time Australia played an ODI in New Zealand (the World Cup match at Eden Park) everyone thought road and runs, then the ball started moving. Given recent matches, though, and the hefty scores made by Australia, India, New Zealand and Pakistan you'd have to think juicy runs will be on the menu.
They still play Tests at the WACA? I trust the nets are up to keep the savages off the oval. (Or to keep the commentators from raving on about the pace of the WACA pitch.)
Bill Collins of film fame once said that you must keep watching films to keep in practice. The same applies to blogging: you've got to keep up the momentum. I've lost momentum.
95% of the way through a post on Stokes, Starc, Smith and obstruction, absolute grist for the AGB mill, it suddenly occurred to me that I couldn't be bothered. Couldn't even be bothered doing a post about David Gyngell and 4 days Tests. Jimmy Anderson saying the Poms fixed the pitches. The cancelled Bangladesh tour. Warner on McCullum and sledging. Yawn.
