Our batting is fucked.

Even so, still hoping that fuckwit Warner gets hit by a bus before he’s due back.

Sad news I read today, regardless of your thoughts of Andrew Strauss as a player.

I knew she was seriously ill.

RIP Ruth.

It's very sad for Strauss and his two young children. Let's hope he follows Glenn McGrath's example and makes something positive out of it.

Australia 2-1 down with one to play now. Hard to imagine a trickier place for India to win. Even poor Australian teams usually see off subcontinental sides pretty easily at home.
I can see Smith and Bancroft getting back into this team relatively easily, but given Bancroft has well and truly thrown Warner under the bus, and deservedly so, it's hard to see anyone wanting him back in the fold.

Aussies on the wrack again. That toss was vital. You knew India would bat and try and grind the Aussies into the dust again if they won, and so they are.
I thought England's batting was bad -- if you have to play 3 wicket keepers because your specialist batters can't cut it, you should be in trouble -- but Australia are getting skittled on the reg.

Have Courtney and Curtley made a come-back ?

We're playing 3, count em, 3 wicket keepers. That's how fucked our batting is.
