Australia have added Glenn Maxwell to squad as cover for both David Warner and Shaun Marsh; both of whom have picked up injuries. 

Seems to be more likely Marsh misses out than Warner.

Guy from some Aussie sports channel said if Aussies bat first Warner might struggle to make start. 

Either way he can’t be fully fit which can only be good for us. 

Im buzzing for this but won’t see much of first 2 tests.

I wonder if he’d bat down the order or just open with restricted movement and swing for the fences.

It’s not easy to do that with a new ball and if conditions are cloudy and wet 

they might put England in if they win toss 

all out for 170 and chasing a game.

They could always open with Marsh and Bancroft, assume that they won’t need Warner on day 1, and play him at 7 or 8.

Can’t help but feel England are making the wrong call with Ball. He’s barely played in the warm-ups and his style isn’t really suited to Australian pitches. 

Overton went well in the warm-ups and would have provided useful extra batting in Stokes’ absence.

When the day night test is on (think at the 2nd test), does that mean it’ll be on at a reasonable hour?

Looks like play will start at 3.30am so will see the afternoon/evening sessions.

For years I've defended Cook as my Dad calls him a lazy cunt who prefers watching the game from the gallery rather than playing and he goes and does that..!!??..:duh:

He’s turning in to an all or nothing player.
