Aus vs NZ - WACA test

Post by Sathias » 13 Nov 2015, 17:23

Warner just got his third tonne in a row, insanely good form. Very impressed at how he has been able to knuckle down and turn himself into a good test batsman. I have to admit I doubted him in the beginning.

And it's pretty damn hot! Good choice making NZ bowl, as it will be 38 tomorrow!

Also good for the Aussies in that NZ have already used both appeals - and lost them from what I've read.

Feels weird to say this on day 1, but calling it now... Aussies have this test in the bag. The combination of this lead and how much the ball is already spinning/bouncing out of the rough, Lyon is going to be a handful in the last innings.

He really could end up being something special if he keeps up this form. Considering he was such a slogger he is really technically sound now compared.

I love a good Simpson Cricket mash up

Warner is just killing it at the moment, I love him.

Usman Khawaja has also taken this second chance seriously and I hope he sticks around for a while.

dead wicket, that's the problem; NZ just haven't gotten themselves out this time. feels like they have prepared both wickets so far to negate southee and boult.

I can understand why Mitchell Johnson is considering retiring, why would you bother breaking your back on heartless lifeless wickets... probably the most disappointing wicket at the waca ever... and yes Cricket Australia that's how you kill off test cricket !

Kookaburra ball also seems to be causing problems - I've been noticing lots of ball changes and so has Davey Warner.

Here's hoping the pink ball actually tips the balance back towards the bowlers a bit.

I saw a post somewhere implying he was leaving *because* of the pink ball test. Really?

I think a few things he has said have been blown out of proportion
Which means he will not take part in the historic day-night Test match against the Black Caps in Adelaide on November 27, having already indicated his misgivings about the pink ball to be used in that match and the shift away from the traditions of Test cricket that he valued highly.
He's been thinking about retirement for some time now.
