More good poaching than recruitment. Chris Jordan found Archer as a net bowler in his native Barbados  and seeing that West Indian cricket did not appear to want him and the fact he had an English father offered him a future contract with Sussex. Later the ECB fell over themselves to waive the current 7 yr eligibility period to 3 to fast track him into international cricket.

One mans poacher is another mans recruiter. Fortunately someone recognised a great talent.

It takes value away from test cricket. In special circumstances it maybe alright ( Kepler Wessels ) could not play tests as his country was not allowed but went back when they could.

I think Archer was being a sook cause he got dropped in the West Indies so went some where else. If that's the case we might as well start having a draft for disgruntled cricketers who cannot get a game for there country.

Burns was stone-dead but for that miniscule inside edge. Brilliant new ball bowling by Hazlewood. Cummins is a touch too short.

Yep. Recruited from South Africa in 1970 by Kerry Packer for WSC.  Played his first game for Australia 12 years later in 1982. Very good cricketer.

Had a technique problem when the ball was pitched on his legs. Good bowlers worked him out.

Pommies are in dire trouble. 5-45. Superb pressure bowling from Hazlewood brings about Denly's wicket. That was a case of the non bowler getting the wicket.

Who would have thought. Six wickets in the first session in bright sunshine. Well bowled. Well caught Warner.

Yep Warner took a couple of screamers. last test he grassed everything. Baffling. Is this series the best Hazlewood has bowled in years. Makes a big difference when he has a ball in hand that aids his impeccable accuracy.

Simple.   Father is English and good recruiting.

 

Australia does it as well - Marnus Labuschagne was born in South Africa.

 

Both Archer and Labuschagne are Australian and English citizens respectively, so they are entitled to play for those countries.

 

Sounding like sour grapes Tony :P   We are good enough to beat whoever they put in front of us  - or at least I hope so.

 

All out 67!!.  Told ya  haha

Now Harris and Khawaja follow him with similar wide wafts with little footwork. How many blokes have tossed away their wickets today?
