Final Ashes Test.

I have a feeling that we will spank the Poms in this test.

We’ve retained the urn. The boys know they will be home soon after a long time spent away.

Apart from Head, the coach has shown faith in the rest of the players, and his mate Marsh!

The weather will be good and the scene is set for the boys to win and win easily.

Come on boys, fire up!

  • Warner should have been dropped also for Khawaja. I can't fathom that Langer insists with Oz batting only with 10 players.

    Aus should also rest Cummo. Don't want him breaking down again due to his big workload this summer.

    • Mitchell Marsh has been selected to take some of the load off our front three pace attack.

      • Well Mitchell Marsh is certainly taking someones load, that's the only explanation for him being in the team after his long line of failures.

        • LOL. And 100% correct.

    Massive CHAD!

    • Fan on the hill...Khawaga isn't much better unfortunately. Our top order has struggled big time, but so have the opponents top order. Warner obviously has a weakness Broad is perfect at exposing. Let's hope Warner gets a century. 

      • We'll maybe not so much but at least he's not knicking them first few balls he gets. He's got more stickability. Broad's doing a number on Warner and it's criminal on behalf of Langer leaving him out there destroying his confidence even further.

        • I guess it is Davey Warner, and he is renowned for coming out and proving the critics wrong. I'm guessing this has been the case for the past 2 test matches!? Yes, he shoul;dn't be playing IMO, but they have selected him, he has some credits in the bank from a few matches and maybe the selectors have recognised this. Here is the perfect opportunity for him to shut up the critics. A good batting strip, faith shown in him. home after this test and we've got the ashes. If he doesn't perform, time for him to be whipped, stretched and shot from the feet up.

          Nothing less!

           

  • The Oval is the best batting pitch in England. Smith needs to score 309 runs to pass Bradman which, if he has someone to stick around with him, he realistically could do given he scored 293 runs in the last test and 286 in the first test.

    • Just think that the only way Smith has been out this summer is because he went out slogging (for quick runs) after Aus took the upper hand and when Archer felled him, we wasn't himself after coming back out.

      I'm sure England had a couple plans for him but they went out of the window because you have a batsman who doesn't have any weaknesses and has the soundest defensive technique in the world. What he did to Broad in his 82 who was bowling constantly way down legside to simply forehanding shots to the boundary I'VE NEVER SEEN BEFORE. That would have been as humiliating as when Youvraj Singh smashed him for 6 sixes in an over.

      I was watching a youtube clip yesterday and the journo was saying ever since he came back into the Aus team in 2012 (leaving aside when he was an allrounder) he has a freakish average of 75 in test cricket.

      The guy is a freak and we are lucky to witness his greatness.

      Yuvraj rocketed away to a 12-ball half-century, which to date remains the quickest fifty in T20Is. He eventually finished on 58 in 16 balls, his inni…
