Matt Renshaw...

What happened to him? I thought he looked decent at the top for us in a tough period.

I know Puc was dropped twice, BUT, good technique, great application, looked to have heaps of time, and was unflappable. Great to see his Shield form transfer.

I think we have found a couple of good'uns in Green and Puc

Got dropped then had a real lean trot at 1st class level. Scored a 150 for QLD this season batting down the order. I believe it was his first ton in 3 seasons.

That was a 8min rain delay.

They rolled the hesh out and the rain stopped.

It was a few spits. Why even bother ?

The ICC need to look into this.

Anyway we are back.

Have to say he's been out performed by Head since the Ashes. Head has just been dropped so he's on shaky ground.

Yep, it's much better than last year when we had the no1 team here and kicked their butts. At least we have a contest now. :D

Yeah, reckon it's a 400+ pitch and they did choose to bat first. It's in the balance right now.
