He’s going to be a generational bat; but picking him early like this is desperation at protecting his job which could “potentially” destroy a budding world class bat.

At least they didn't pick Sangha or the Edwards kid...though if Chappellg has his way they'll surely be on the plane to the UK where Anderson & Broad will eat their green arses for breakfast....:shh

Why do Indian crowds always sound like they're full of teenage girls? Sounds more like a Taylor Swift concert than a cricket match...... :shh

Paine lost another toss so Sri Lanka are batting.

Teams - Australia: Marcus Harris, Joe Burns, Usman Khawaja, Marnus Labuschagne, Travis Head, , Tim Paine (c/wk), Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Jhye Richardson, Nathan Lyon


SL 0/17

Starc thought he had Thirimanne out LBW (given out by the umpire) but it's been overturned on review (hawkeye had the ball missing leg stump).

SL 3/58 at Tea. Lyon with the last wicket.



Matt: "Is there any way to find out Mitchell Starc's bowling numbers since Sandpapergate? I cant imagine they're going to make very good reading."

Richardson going a long way to booking a flight to England for the Ashes. 2 wickets already on debut and able to swing the ball both ways which will be vital on English pitches.

Aussies 2/72 at stumps. We were lucky to not be three down. Playing a weaker Sri Lanka doesn't hide our top order deficiencies.

Still no one went on to make a century even against this Sri Lankan side. At least one of Labuschagne or Head should have reached their first ton if not for a loss of concentration.


At least we can laugh at England. Rolled by the Windies for just 77  :rollin.

Aside from India and South Africa, every other traditional cricketing nation seems to be at their lowest ebb batting wise.
