I'm expecting big things from the Big Show this innings. Its now or never Maxwell!
I'm hoping he doesn't get a chance. Would love to see these 2 bat the innings out. :)

This is nice, sensible batting.

Now for the next trick, will I make it to the end of our innings?

Him and stoinis need to do something and make amends for their poor tournaments to date

I'd rather see him sit there and block for a little bit while he gets settled than to start thrashing straight away and throw away his wicket...

Fancy Stoinis failing. Should have medically ruled him out 2 weeks ago.

neither do I but he's gotta do it because otherwise one of the bowlers has to and I have even less faith in them...

**** Stoinis... I am not a fan of his at all. Whenever I watch him for Australia he contributes nothing (though admittedly I watch a lot less cricket these days). Plus he seems like a d-bag... has this annoying smug look

On the other hand if Maxwell is there at the end we're probably in good shape

We should have put Wade in the team ahead of one of these two. Surely someone here agrees with me

Wade should have been in the side but for Handscombe. He's technique has never been good enough and it hasn't improved at all and it's not working for him. You could argue that Smith's technique is flawed but he makes an unorthodox technique work.

Handscomb was pretty good in India, understand why he was picked as the replacement.

Stoinis and Maxwell are a waste, Wade could have replaced one of them.

I'm giving up I don't think we can win the match from here :-(

I didn't see any of India but I don't think I've ever seen Handscombe look comfortable.

We need to fluke out another 50 or 60 and Starc to rip through the top order.... or rain Image

Handscomb was pretty good in India. He's up and down though.

We have really missed Cummins lower order batting given that our middle order hasn't been strong in this world cup. Feel sorry for smith batted well but no support
