I don't think Aus will pile on 500 plus mind, both sides are better bowling than batting at the moment. The net result might well be the same, but I think our bowlers will be okay.

And yes, I do expect this to be quoted tomorrow when Labuschagne and Warner are on 200* each.

When did we last win at the Gabba? 30 years or more ago?

It's rare for anyone other than the Aussies to win at the Gabba.  It's perfectly suited to their bowlers and batsmen. However, waving the white flag in the first hour of the Ashes probably sets a tone you don't want to be setting.

Well that was a bit better.
Could do with Root making a double century, to even have half a chance. Just hope we donít collapse again tomorrow after a good day.

Absolutely superb fight back by Malany and Rooty. Big hundreds from both and a cameo by the likes of Stokesy and Buttlery and we actually have a sniff of winning. Especially if the pitch throws up a demon or two

Great fightback, bodes well for the rest of the series but we're still a long way behind in this game.

To quote Blackadder, rather a spectacular return to form after the genius moment.

Whoops

I did admire the optimism when you posted that.  Smiley

Strange decision to bat first and to leave out the 2 expert bowlers in those conditions.
Saving them for the day nighters I guess, but don't really understand the need for rotation in cricket.

I called it time when we were 8 down last night. The nod order collapse was refreshingly consistent with recent ashes series it would seem.

I wouldn't mind but the Ozzies hardly have the calibre of McGrath, Warne, Gillespie, Lee, Ponting & the Waugh brothers etc.

Jimmy is 39, fast bowling is quite hard on the body, especially if the opposition bat for a good chunk of 5 days. Having said that, rotating both of then out in the same game, then finding a bowler friendly Day 1 pitch and choosing to bat, does seem a little poorly thought through.
