Couldn't believe it mate when we declared giving them a great chance to chase down 273 off 75 overs... unbelievably they didn't even try to have a crack it ?

What the>>> lost a post.

Morning Pete. Only one word for that Pommie decision after Kane's sporting declaration.. gutless. Turned what may have been an exciting run chase into a boring draw for the punters. A poor advertisement for the pure game mate.

Morning Craig - your team would've definitely had a crack in the same situation... just shows you the difference between Australasian & British attacking mindset, not just in cricket but in all the other sports too.

That's strange you lost a post mate.

You can lay bets my Baggy Greens and your BCs 've had a big crack mate.
Perhaps Joe was guided by his brittle top six.. mainly the four we spoke about. They really need a seasoned pro in that middle order to help out the skipper when going gets tuff. I do see only one of that quartet with the temperament for Tests.. Dom Sibley.. not pretty to watch but is effective in blunting an attack.

Even though they lack that bit of experience in the middle order they still should've had a go - if they had lost a few early wickets then they could've batted for the draw... yeah, Sibley is a pretty dogged batsman.

:thumbsu: totally agree Pete. Win your nation a test match goes a long way to cementing your place.. is what their coach needed to tell the batting order. Not shut up shop when there is a game to be won.
Boy those five days went fast mate. Next match on Friday?

Precisely Craig - you're going to be a better player if you consistently play in a positive manner... yeah, the Test went pretty quickly, losing a day through rain wasn't great.
Mate, 2nd Test is on Thursday, Edgbaston, starts at the same time again, 8pm {AusT}

Craig - Sounds like Stead has changed his mind concerning Boult in the 2nd Test... going by that article he wants to play him because we drew the 1st Test, what absolute nonsense, these tests are basically preparation for the big final, the reality is Boult always needed to at least play in one of these Tests to get the match play & flow in his bowling going into the final.

Course Boult needed to play Pete.. a no brainer given he has a better record in Pom conditions than Southee. Who goes tho.. Santner for mine.. a dead loss with bat and ball last match. BCs are red hot favorites now with Trent playing mate.
