What a start to the day
Can Australia pull of a victory today?
This clearly confirms that neither Asian team and that includes Pakistan stands a chance against Australia in Australia. Only SA can compete with them.
Australia pace attack is right up there amongst the best. Their reserves are even frightening - Starc, Hazlewood, Pattinson, Clint, Bird etc
If you come out with a negative mindset, this is the price you pay. England haven't learned their lesson all series, just trying to hang in never helps. One good ball will get you eventually" Australia's attack has been unrelenting against a batting line devoid of confidence and broken apart
Don't know what the weather forecast is like for the rest of the test, but Clarke probably won't enforce it anyway. The pitch will take more spin the longer the game goes on and will increase Lyon's threat, not that Australia need to rely on the spinner the way things are going.
Clarke might like to have that extra threat anyway.
Against this bowling line up which is just not giving anything away conventionally why not adopt the T20 mindset. That's what devilliers would have done at least
