    Heard that the batting average has dropped from around 45 to 30 in the SS this year at the MCG with the new curator producing grassier pitches than before.

    Have him bat right handed. It's not going to make him any worse than previously

    bowler friendly means we can play another "batter" instead of M.Marsh. Especially with how well the GOAT is bowling.

    If we pick M.Marsh next test, then I would start getting worried about another MCG bore.

    Been great cricket the 10 days so far. 2 even sides.

    Wasn't the last Test pitch at the WACA the worst in recent history (in terms of doing WACA things?

    We did put up 650. Us.

    Im not sure myself. I think it is one of those things where I was born with a crop of awesome and then I have kind of watered the gardens, tended to the farm and created this farmable mass of fantastic brilliance. I have so much to give and share out but just not enough hours in the day to give it all out.

    The 29-year-old has compiled 1,197 runs at 52.04 across the past two Shield seasons – numbers that compare favourably with Victorian Marcus Harris, whose returns of 1,207 runs at 50.29 played a key reason in his selection for the India series.

    Right hander also (Ashwin factor) - Finch isn't a test opener, how he made it to 50 in the first innings was a minor miracle. Wouldn't be against him batting in the middle order if his finger is ok replacing Handscomb.
    Would be very happy if Burns came in and opened and move Finch to 5.

    There was a result tho? Can hardly blame the curator for an incompetent opponent.

    Last boxing day was literally the most boring test I've ever seen. Reckon an unlimited day test would've gone for 10 days.

    Not disagreeing with anything you've said - no one has been more critical of the Bushrangers and everything VicCricket more than myself. The Boxing Day pitch has been a let down for a number of years. I'm hopeful this new bloke is better, but do raise eyebrows on any Shield wicket Nic Maddinson can peel off 150 on.

    Same 13 named for Melbz and Sydney. Ben Horne tweeted saying Handscomb has a chance to fight for his spot which makes me think it's Mitch's to lose as of tonight.

    It got graded ‘average’ though right? Still not a fair rating, but they don’t cop any demerit points.

    Yeah it did, I got trolled by the headline which was something like lowest possible passing grade or something to that effect.

    Even average is a poor grading imo, genuinely sick of seeing everything weighted towards batsman. I mean, Kohli still made a hundred, as well as five others going past 50.

    It got a little dangerous though right and that's the issue. Harris knock on the head and short bowling at tail enders on an uneven surface isn't what icc will want.

    That's their theory but can't say I agree with it. It did something early (as all pitches should) and then flattened out for over two days before firing back up in the afternoon session of day four.

    With the advances in batsman safety and the fact you can literally walk out there covered from head to toe in pads, plus the bigger bats, plus the very short roped in boundaries, bowlers deserve pitches that offer them something.

    In my opinion, as a spectator, that pitch offered something for everyone.

    100% agree with you but from an icc perspective I don't think they can come out and say that. They are just covering their arses.
