There's a poor Air Quality Forecast for Sydney tomorrow, it will be interesting to see how bad it is, and whether it effects the cricket.

Surprised Australia have declared, i thought they might bat till 30 mnutes after tea. The Kiwi's need 420.

How well is Cummins going? 100+ wickets at 20 in the last two years. Those are Malcolm Marshall-like numbers. He is as accurate as McGrath and around 8 km/hr quicker.

Touch wood, his body stays together.

Apologies if this offends anyone

I got a good laugh earlier today. It was the green garden bin day so i was in the yard raking up some leaves and listening to the cricket on my little pocket radio.
Alison Mitchell a pommy commentator was the calling the game and she said "Warner has gone for a pull in front of the ladies stand.

I hope he doesn't get in too much trouble:peepwall:help

Really disappointing Test series V NZ. Expected much more of a contest. Their batting never seemed to get going or couldn't sustain any impetus. There's no way they can be world No.2 although a far better team at home, like everyone else.
Wagner is a real fighter but, with the very green Ferguson out injured, their attack has no-one who can barely bowl over 135 kmh. It's not all about pace, but when Australia has 5 bowlers (when all available) who can manage 145 kmh bowling with swing and seam, it's very hard to be a serious competitor.

It was so one-sided I lost interest quite a while back.

Afghanistan or Bangladesh would've been more competitive. Have said that, are quicks are outstanding, and the Goat goes ok too.

Jeepers!!!! Tom Banton goes ok, 55 off 16 balls so far, he's making batting partner Chris Lynn 23 off 8 look like Boycott.

The size of the ground is a *smile* take. Rope must be in 20m all around the ground. No surprise people are making *smile* loads of runs - barely need to get it off the square. Making a mockery of the sport.

Agree. Makes me sick when visiting teams melt over here, especially the Pommies.
