Got a ticket for Day 1 of the 2nd Test in Adelaide. Buzzing. Reckon 2-1 England going into the 5th Test.

Australia this morning announced their squad for the First Test. No real surprises to anyone watching their one day series, but two compelling players to see how they get on. Chris Rogers David Warner

On paper it's a 5-0 England win. That Aussie line-up in comparison, imo, is so much weaker. This Test is a bit of a no win for Australia. Historically this is their fortress. If they lose it I can see

Yes. If the game was to be saved, however unlikely, then risk/reward needed to dominate shot selection. The hook just wasn't the shot to be playing in the circumstances.

The hook should should never be played regularly. If I was bowling I wouldn't mind batsmen making it. Even if they find the ropes 5 or 6 times before the edge one, my figures would still be what? 24-1?

Exactly. By all means pull, but if you can't be sure of getting over the ball and keeping it down, drop on your haunches and leave it the fuck alone.

A lesson needs to be learned from this, as if they couldn't control the ball on a slow Adelaide strip there's no fucking chance at the waca.

The other thing is, especially with the Broad dismissal, they decide to play the pull early, then the bounce gets too high on them. At that point you HAVE to pull out of the shot. They just kept swinging anyway :lol:.
