Post by bayman on Wed Aug 23, 2017 8:28 pm

Looking forward to this. Bangladesh are no longer automatic easybeats, particularly at home. And the Australians difficulty with good spin bowling is well known. Wasn't that long ago that Sri Lanka gave us an embarrassing thrashing.

Best bit is that I can watch the last session after I get home from work.

Another capitulation in the second test.
Cruising at 4/300 and then lose 5/77 to be 72 ahead at stumps on day 3.

These guys never learn.

Well, they only picked 4 batsmen.

They love all-rounders who can bat a bi, or bowl a bit, or 'keep a bit but can't do either well enough.

Maxwell.

Wade

Cartwright

O'Keefe

Agar.

Spot on. We would be much better off picking one specialist batsman and one specialist bowler then two all rounders who aren't up to test standard in either category

Agree, 1 allrounder is enough
The only time you have 2 is if they are exceptional or world class players
England has 2, Moeen Ali and Ben Stokes

Of the 5 mentioned by Lee
The one that just looks like he could evolve into a decent allrounder is Ashton Agar

Australia lead by 72 after the first digs
Australia the only side that can win this
Bangas will have to bat too long to set up a winning lead

Australia should win easily

Lyon writes himself into the record books with a fantastic display of spin bowling. A seriously underrated cricketer.

Great bowler that Nathan Lyon
Has the disadvantage of not being able to bowl to Australian batsmen in sub continent Test Matches
