  • Boxing Day Test

    Australia deserve to lose after what they did to Steve Smith.
    Worst batting line up weve had in the entire history of the game.
    Pretty good quartet of bowlers however.

    Everyone know's Smith is innocent. We deserve all that happens if we keep selecting the Marsh bros.

      considering the farcial penalties given to overseas players for similar offences, the penalties should be halved immediately!

        ICC's penalty for the ball tampering...1 match suspension.
        Not enough for CA officialdom though.
        'Win at all costs' was basically how it was.
        You can tamper with the ball...rubbing it on your pants to shine one side could be classed as ball tampering.
        A former captain of ours said on tv that you can throw the ball back to the bowler etc with one side down, on the bounce to roughen up one side.....you just can't rub it with sandpaper.
        Steve Smith didn't do it, didn't order it done, but took the blame for it, obviously thinking it wasn't a big deal (and he would change the culture in future)...because it had never been a big deal in the past.

          Good bowlers...but they've looked very ordinary in this Test.
          Do they even know what a yorker is?
          They bowl many stupid bouncers...which is just a waste of energy and deliveries.
          Slower balls...where are they.
          Swinging deliveries, where are they.
          They're at it again now in India's second innings.
          Finally...Cummins bowls a rising delivery at chest height instead of a bouncer way over the batsman's head and gets a wicket.

          This worst team...playing "goody two shoes" cricket...is basically useless...can't bat, can't bowl.

            The team does have a good bowling attack, just lacks leadership and anyone who can score runs.
            With Warner and Smith playing we'd have gone into the boxing day test 2-0 up.
            The ACB are insane.........................kinda like the nrl.

              Yes...nrl clubs suspend top players for indiscretions instead of fining them.
              Fans pay to see the best players in their teams playing ...and their teams winning.
              WINNING IN SPORT IS EVERYTHING.

              That having the 'sandpaper three' crying at press conferences..distraught to the point that fears were held for their mental health...was a total outrage.
              This "let's all shake hands, and sit around in a circle singing kumbaya" before every match is totally ridiculous.
              We'll see how much longer this "goody two shoes" Aussie cricket lasts.
              Bring back attack dog Warner!
              Apparently his teammates are all blaming him for the ball tampering etc.
              If I were them I'd be keeping my mouths shut tightly. The persecuted often have a habit of telling all.

                No one to challenge/ 'fight back' at him, Kohli is mouthing off and laughing at our players, and therefore us, at will.

                    I think our Roosters team would score more runs than Finch, Marsh etc.

                      Nice of Lillee to set up a fast bowling academy in India, wasn't it.

                        Lillee's academy must have worked ,because except for Cummings our bowlers have no variety in their deliveries while the Indian bowlers do.Have Hazelwood or the others any idea what a yorker or a slow ball is.

                          Winning in sport without honour is nothing.

                          Cricket lost most of its honour when they started criticising walking

                            On the boxing day test, the most farcical thing by far was again the pitch at the MCG.
                            they deserve to loose the right to have the game if they can't prepare a decent surface

                              In India now...March 2019...we're still bowling short rubbish at Kohli etc.
                              Still getting belted to and over the fence.
                              Still losing.
