Good job Ponting, Clarke and Haddin were playing today otherwise the Ozmates would have been in deficit on the 1st Innings. You just can't beat experience and class

Did not like Pattinson much, he seemed just like Siddle Mk 2 - sort of a one-trick-pony who gets wickets more out of the impatience of batsmen than genuine skill.
5/27 off 11 overs

Wish we had more of these "one trick ponies".................but then what would I know I only base my opinions on life experience

We need:

  • More one trick ponies like Pattinson.
  • Hughes and Hussey to go (for Marsh and Watson) - Hughes is becoming a joke.

Bombay Duck was right, New Zealand are crap. I was going to go to the cricket today but went to Yum Cha in Chinatown instead.

Whats McCullum there for? A swish hitting keeper is cool but as a specialist opener with a dodgy technique PLUS a keeper[that can't keep]? Theres a hole in your lineup.

They might be crap touring but I still stand by my opinion that they are hard to beat at home. They don't seem to "doctor" their wickets at home either.

I'll admit I may have been wrong about Pattinson, he showed he is capable of a good performance.

Now lets see you admit you were wrong about ANYTHING.

Clarke, the tattooed bogan, defending his 'mate' Hughes and his retention on TV today. Hughes has more technical faults than California or Iceland but thats OK.

If Watson and Marsh are still injured how about blooding Ed Cowan? He only made 145 against NZ a week ago.

Meanwhile Kat gets a spanking...

Khawaja to open or Hussey to rest (hopefully for ever)?

Well played to the Windies, good to see a win for you at last. Maybe India are due to struggle in Oz again?

SN its an ODI, calm down mate.

The test series here will be THE oportunity for India to win here. I don't think their young guns will have it after the holy trinity retires. Our shield players play on greentops theirs on roads.

Even at club level, walking out on a green deck in the morning used to be normal after an evening rain shower and its boingo boingo (not a Berlusconi party).

Except for Tendulkar, Dravid, Laxman, Dhoni, Zaheer and Ishant who aren't playing...

That said, Rohit Sharma should pick up the #6 spot. Technically superior to Kohli and with a good head on his shoulders (as is evidenced by his scores in these games and domestic four-day games). Has played in Australia before and batted very well in the ODI series on the last tour; facing Brett Lee on a hard top in even limited overs is hard.

TC, mostly right about Indian batsmen. The only reason Bombay has come out with better batsmen over the years is its club scene that has a tournament in the monsoons. Damp and grassy pitches where a 50 is worth 100 make life hell for any batsman.

As usual the clowns at Cricket Australia have f*#ked it up again, Steve waugh echoes what "Henry" Lawson and Thommo have said previously.

Too much too soon: Waugh

Now we won't see the delights Of Cummins thudding it into the helmets (oh for the no body armour,helmetless old days)of Dravid, Tendulkar and Co. this summer.

Phil Hughes surely must be gone now.

He is getting out to balls he does not need to play at.

His confidence is shot he looks shot, it is sad to watch. He obviously has talent but he is mentally out of it. I reckon the selectors should send him all the way back to district cricket and let him work his way back. He is young enough and nobody else has really cemented the openers spot.

I hope Warner gets some runs.

Bring on the Indians my second favourite cricket team.

And how many 5-wicket halls does Mitchell Johnson have?

And New Zealand got to 150... surely they aren't a bad team eh Grumps?

we're not talking about Johnson here....I'm referring to your statement that Pattinson is a "one trick pony".......and that is before he claimed his first five wicket haul.

As you very well know I was alluding that NZ are a hard team to beat at HOME....ie New Zealand, Aotearoa, The land of the long White Cloud, the Shaky Isles call it what you will....what part of AT HOME are you having trouble with.

Hobart is more South Island New Zealand than bl**dy Blenheim.

They are crap, DG Brownlie a WEST AUSTRALIAN Kiwi, nothwithstanding.

Phil Hughes is now a comedy act.

And you think they are good at home, when they aren't. Face it Grumpy, you're Ricky Ponting in disguise!

(And Pattinson may have taken two five-wicket halls, but they have been against the same team in the same country.... still one trick! )

Oh, and two names to watch out for in the future (I called Ajinkya Rahane's debut four years in advance, so I'll stick my neck out for these): Suryakumar Yadav and Abhishek Nayar. Run machines, both.

Are they like Raina and play the short pitched ball with the logo on the helmet?

PS I love a good stoush, especially amongst mates, a bit like scrummaging. Go get each other BD and Grumps.
