FWIW, I've no issue with the bowling, but you can show a bit of compassion when a guy narrowly avoids getting his head removed.

Thousands of crickets have been hit by the ball. One tragically had fatal consequences. It's by far the exception, not the rule. In the nets I've bowled short balls and hit teammates on the head and we've all had a laugh about it. One incident, as tragic as it was, won't change my perception.
Probably the most accurate thing you've said. Wow mate, you must have had a seriously shitty time when you were living here judging by that massive chip on your shoulder. Can I suggest you take up carpentry it'll help with the chip & your anger issues.

Smith out of today's final day and possibly the third test due to concussion.

Massive loss for Australia.

Yeah, massive boost for England.

The HIA protocols clearly not up to standard given Smith was allowed back on the field yesterday.

I don’t get taking pleasure in seeing a sportsman injured myself, but it was a Beauty of a delivery from Archer and has ultimately given England a solution as to how they deal with Smith.

He actually looks mean with it now whereas yesterday he looked a bit bashful.

Headingley has been quite a quick pitch the last couple of years so if we get dry weather (yeah big "if") it could be interesting.

I also wonder whether this may tempt the Aussies to bring back Starc to fight fire with fire.

It really has, we've found a chink in his armour. Get Jofra on and send rockets at his head.

Although England aren't great (well a bit rubbish really), if Jimmy and Jofra had been (fit &) available for these first two tests I think it's highly likely we'd actually be 2 nil up now.

Hopefully someone poisons Joffrey's jerk chicken.

Need to get Starc in and fight fire with fire. Start by lining up that cheating cunt Root with a few right into his windpipe. Cop that you E.T. fingered prick!

Joffrey's been such a success, you lot will probably shelve the South Africans and go all out for West Indians now. Im sure they can knock up some easy passport fixes

Bit different than getting a 20yr old that's barely set foot in the country playing for you.

The West Indians must be steaming. They've been robbed an absolute beast of a bowler.

To not play for England and play for the country he's spent basically his whole life in.

Loads of players play county cricket!

Bloody Peter Siddle been playing for some county side for years FFS.

Mark Cosgrove that fat lump of turd (he's in my extended family somehow) has been playing for Glamorgan for years too. Don't see you lot picking him

By these rules we should be able to get that little Afghan spinner that comes over every summer and plays in our 20/20 league. He's an absolute cracker too.

Well yeah if they called i'd think about it. I'd feel bad for Australia though.

We're so shit, a player of my class could make a real difference. I'd still get to play in the World Cup. Plus I'd be a national hero here, whereas for Spain i'd probably be just another talented central midfielder in the Xabi mould, and have to be fighting for my place all the time and copping the jeers of their temperamental fans.

So i reckon i'll play for Australia.

Jesus. This is going to be a bloodbath. Don't trust any of our top order to make a score. Only two that look even remotely solid are Head and Wade and Wade is just as likely to make 10 as he is 50+. Absolutely spineless this side really.

There's absolutely nobody in our side that can dig in and drive the bowlers nuts. Been saying this for years too. They all just cannot help themselves and have to play their shots. Its not a 20/20 game you morons!

Yeah both sides batting is absolutely awful, bar Smith and maybe Root and Stokes.

Two very solid bowling attacks though. Some of our bowlers handle the bat better than our bloody top order do too

Outside of India in the sub-continent, I don't think there is a solid batting team in the world. We're in an age of strokemakers and T20 dashers. I remember a few years ago, South Africa didn't necessarily have the best players but there were guys like Smith, Petersen and Prince that would dig in and bat long periods of time providing the foil for more fluid players. England have had plenty of their own with likes of Collingwood, Cook and Trott. This style of player is a dying breed, but essential for winning test matches.

The last days cricket I went to had 1 wicket and Smith and Amla batted for ever. It wasn’t that long ago really but it feels like a different era.

It was boring as fuck to be fair

England could never get to Graeme Smith, same as Steve Smith these days.

Warner is an absolute moron and he's exactly the type i was talking about in my post above.

Simply cannot help himself and has to slash at balls outside off. You might get away with that in Australia on our pitches, but you're going to get out very very early in England when the balls hooping around like it does!

Its pretty fucking obvious. A bloody cricket simpleton like me can see it. I haven't played a game of cricket since i was 12 FFS

Yeah, both top order plagued with a lack of discipline.

Where’s your Alistair Cook types? Just blocking for the first session, wearing attacks down but ultimately eventually going on to big scores. It’s not pretty but it wins tests. That England batting line up with Cook and Strauss opening then Trott following up once those two had worn the attack down and then KP following that attrition up swinging for the ropes. Without the attrition you can’t get the expansive play.
