    Warne was hardly enthusing about Mitchell Starc’s (1-75) performance.

    “He’s a fantastic bowler. My criticism is about his preparation,” said Warne.

    “He opted to have rests before Adelaide — they were all given the option, and he opted for the rest. I don’t think he’s been anywhere near the Mitchell Starc we’d hoped.

    “I don’t think that’s good enough. He’s taken a lot of time off rather than bowling, bowling, bowling.
    Ferocious Mitchell Starc sends Ajinkya Rahane packing

    “Mitchell Starc is averaging 47, probably higher after today, with the new ball against the top six. Josh Hazlewood is averaging 41. That is not good enough. If you match them up to all the other bowlers in the world, it just doesn’t compare.

    “If you’re saying, this is one of the best attacks in the world, which everyone likes to say, which they can be if they get it right, but they’re just not.

    “I don’t think any team has feared Australia for a few years now, and that’s an unfortunate thing.”

    Basically been saying that they are bowling crap with the new pill since the 1st test.
    He's right

    Most disappointing aspect for me has been our pitches, Perth aside. How you go into a series against elite batsman (which we can't match) and prepare docile, low bouncing wickets is quite odd. Everyone knows Lyon relies on bounce over prodigious spin, and any quick we've got is going to prefer zip over things shooting low.

    The bowling itself has been disappointing, no doubt. I don't think Hazlewood has been all that bad despite his poor figures to be honest. Cummins is Cummins and just makes it work. These pitches really haven't played into Starc or Lyons hands. BCCI flat out refused to participate in the day night aspect of Adelaide, wouldn't shock me if they sent a thinly veiled threat after Perth.

    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.

    Its hard sometimes

    Completely agree Rumblah

    The Indians create pitches to suit their bowlers, why don't we do the same? What are the English pitches like, could we be setting up for the Ashes?

    English pitches will be seam friendly but with their cloud cover and the better duke ball (swings for much longer than our kookaburra) the pitch can be less important there.

    So no, there is no reason whatsoever for these insipid Australian pitches.

    It's something we should be using to our advantage.

    We're more worried about setting up for 5 day tests here.

    Give us 3 innings we still wonít reach what they put up.

    But what annoys me the most is we are letting kohli win a series in aus ffs. We didnít even let Sachin win here

    New ball has made it easier to score. Deck still doing nothing, bowlers are tired and canít control the seem. Everything is coming on fast and straight.

    I just want to see someone* make a hundred, don't even mind if it's Harris at this point.

    *not Handscomb because then he's going to England.

    Anyone but Marsh. I hope it's Labuschagne, just to shut a few people up.

    Alison Mitchell is that weird in-law relative you see every Xmas that is about two glasses of red away from breaking down crying about how her husband doesn't want to be intimate with her anymore. Creepy.

    Harris trying to smash Jadeja first ball is exactly the kind of stupidity JL slated him for in his time at WA. Seems he hasn't learnt shit.
