Pitch playing a bit slower than a normal Gabbatoir wicket so pretty underwhelming opening session.

Stoneman's poor record against around the wicket pace is incredible.

We should be all over this mutt.

Pitch is a road on day 1 :rustle:

Miss the days when there was real bounce & seam movement at the Gabba - have 3 quality fast bowlers so makes sense to go away from that & prepare a road.

Just Cricket Australia things these days.

Reaction to the [Moeen stumping] decision was predictably polarised. Some viewers saw no controversy whatsoever, others quibbled both with the notion of the benefit of any doubt going to the batsman, and with the geometry of the crease itself, with images on Twitter suggesting that the line was wider in the middle of the crease than at either end.

Darsh probably gets replaced by Maxxxxy for Adelaide anyway, as they'll want the extra bowling option. Or is it a D/N test? Might be able to get away without it if so

Bit of love for Nathan Lyon.

Always though he was okay, just a decent spinner who was next in the line of spinners who CA went through looking for the next Warnie. Always good for 1-2 wickets per inning and to keep it tight and a reputation which exceeded reality because he had a nickname that became a catchphrase. But he is actually become world class, just about unplayable throughout the test.

Bancroft describes 'weird' Bairstow incident | cricket.com.au (http://www.cricket.com.au/news/england-reaction-jonny-bairstow-statement-bayliss-root-vaughan-botham-katich-bancroft-headbutt-ashes/2017-11-27)

And Australian opener Cameron Bancroft has laughed off the incident in an hilarious media conference after Australia's 10-wicket win in Brisbane.

Bairstow, England coach Trevor Bayliss and captain Joe Root all addressed the media on Monday, but it was Bancroft who stole the show with his recollection of what he labelled a "random" action from Bairstow.

"For me, it was just really weird," Bancroft said to laughter from the waiting media and skipper Steve Smith, who was sitting to his left.

"It was so random, I didn't expect it coming. A handshake or a hug is something I would have expected more than a headbutt.

"But as I said, there was nothing malicious about his actions.

"I don't know Jonny Bairstow but he says hello to people very differently from most others.

"He didn't knock me over. I've actually got the heaviest head in the West Australian squad, it's been measured. There's an actual measurement for it.

"I just took the blow quite well and moved on from it. It was a good hit, play on."

Never said that.

It's clearly a bizarre introduction, no getting away from that. But both individuals involved have said they moved on straight away and were amicable and friendly for the remainder of the night.

That Fox Sports breaking news live cross was implying a Joe Root/Warner incident from the start which is why its created so much hysteria.
