I'm not so much bemoaning Paine, more that as a proud cricket nation our captain and keeper can play 31 tests and only hit 7x 50's no tons.

Oh yeah, its a very weird situation. Honestly, I dont think there is a keeper in the country ATM putting their hand up for the long form job.

I liked that Phillipe too but he hasn't progressed.
Wade's keeping was substandard but his batting is good enough.

I'm 3rd in line keeper in my side, might have to put the head down score some runs Keep getting myself out cheap to loose stuff this season, so easy to get out when you are seeing them like beach balls.

Just bat long mate, and there is an opening :D

I can definitely write a list of short form options, but who can we find to bat long?!?

Only showing the one day internationals on pay services loses so many casual observers and potential new cricket fans. No one at work or around the neighbourhood even knows the cricket has started.

Same issue for rugby league on a Saturday. Why NRL gives Saturday free to air entirely over to AFL I’ll never know. A few of my relatives picked up an interest in AFL by watching free to air on a Saturday.

Zampa really making up for that dropped catch. Got to say... it’s a very late finish, especially for the people at the game.

Australian innings went very long. According to ABC radio Warner and others were changing gloves every couple of overs. Maybe they wanted to keep the Indians in the field in the heat. Good win to Australia though with the top order (apart from Marnus) scoring heavily and quickly.

Not sure, I fell asleep on the lounge.

AUS started batting at 2-40pm local time and were still batting after 6-40pm.

The late finished actually cut into FoxCrickets “long break”between innings.

I’m not sure if that disadvantaged both sides preparation for a feed and change of inning though.

Just looked at the cricinfo commentary.
The last comment before India started batting was 7.16pm - ie, Dharwan and Agarwal are opening and Starc to take 1st over.
The comment at 7.09pm, says "starts in 10mins", so 7.20pm start, give or take.

The last comment - ie, Australia has won by 66 runs, etc etc, was at 11.09pm.

So, it was somewhere between 3.5-4hrs too.

Which means, Australia were probably 10-15mins slow, or maybe 3 overs. Not great, but acceptable with extra drinks and 8 wickets falling.

I recall reading, I think it was Warne's comments, its supposed to be the end of the Aussie innings and we still have 8 and a bit overs left, which at normal pace is 40-45mins. That's a joke!

I was listening to ABC radio, and I think it was Stuart Clark, said, doc them the overs they are behind by in the run chase. He also said, monetary fines mean nothing to the teams and players.

A listener then posted, every over past 3 should be doubled, coz thats so harsh no one will ever do it again.

I saw Gillespie said, 10 runs per over past time. I dont mind this, a reverse "Duckworth Lewis". However, it would need umpires to track reasons for stoppages, eg gloves ever 2-3 overs shouldn't count against the bowlers.

They should outlaw the constant changing of gloves and ****, or at least make it every 10 overs.

It's a joke they can have a drink every 10 mins
