Kiwis win toss and will bat, Siddle in, Smith at 3 and S Marsh at 5.

Pitch could offer a bit more for the bowlers then we've been seeing.

 

Will be nice to see a decent crowd at a Test match. See how the pink ball and day/twilight/night Test cricket goes, bring it on.

85/5 with the Marsh boys quickly out.

 

Shaun run out by some slick fielding, by Mc Collum, but he hesitated at least twice.

 

Mitch probing forward to Bracewell, when he might have played back.

 

Bad situation, Smith will have to stay in.

Crazy shot by Smith, ridiculous DRS call by 3rd ump on Lyon decision. Otherwise this is fascinating Test cricket, Aussies getting some vital runs and soaking up some time to limit the Kiwis time batting in daylight and give them the tougher night conditions.

Starc slogging up a few runs as the game evens out.

 

Advantage still with the Kiwis, we are down a key bowler.

They only need to set us 250, but 300 to make it secure.

 

Nice game of cricket.

Marsh hits Mc Cullum going forward, out but for review.

 

Everything was good, the ball was on line, hitting top 1/3 rd of middle....OUT.

Getting on top, but Bracewell back on.

 

We need 76 more but another wicket will swing it back their way.

Amazeballs!

 

A track with a little bit of grass on it and the surrounding square and ... all those 'modern day Bradmans' look like park cricketers ...

6-70 for Tamworth's finest, well done Josh Hazlewood. And a quality keeping effort by Peter Nevill.

 

Don't insult the boy, from Bendi not Tamworth.

 

Worked with Trev, his father, when Joshie was born.

With Australia's latest injury list - not one quick in the frame who is not either injured, out of form or underdone will the selectors prevail on Mitch Johnson to do a Melba for the windies series?

With the Windies, I suspect any decent Grade cricketer could take a few wickets. Might be time to have a look at some of the new guys. What about that Fekete guy from Tassie? We could bring back champagne Douggie.

Bring back Jackson Bird - he won't let anyone down. Although I don't like the concept of having him and Siddle in the same line up as they are both 130km/hr max. For me the ideal set up would be Hazalwood, Pattinson and Bird (Siddle).

I thought the retirement was premature and in retrospect the selectors could have rested him in the 2nd test. Most bowlers his age would struggle 2-3 tests consecutively on hard wickets.

 

With Starc out, Mitch would be the natural replacemet.

 

What's his retirement status "from all forms of cricket" or from international duty only?
