It's looking like a slaughter at Leichhardt.
Might switch over to the Cricket.

Good on Smith - he saved the Test Match. 

Looks like Jimmy Anderson is going to be out for a while  - big loss to England. On the other hand Archer will probably get his first run in the next test.

There has been some accusations of Smith's backseat conductor.

https://www.smh.com.au/sport/cricket/ponting-defends-smith-s-backseat-driving-during-captaincy-ban-20190804-p52dqt.html

My view is that as long as Smith has got Paine's permission it's not a violation of the ban from leadership.  And Paine is not a fool. I guess he'd rather be a captain who knows how to maximise his chance to win rather than one who's driven by his pride and ego.

What do you think?

Smith ruled out of the third test. 

 

Hmmm.  Time for Warner and co to step up

Without Smith, we'll probably lose and then he'll have to save us in the next one!

I predict a big innings from Warner - well I'm hoping for one...

Will be interesting to see the team chosen this evening.

Both Warner and Bancroft have to perform ... or else.

*someone* has to fill the space that Smith not playing leaves.

Sorry. I was not aware of this thread.  I have left a message on the other cricket thread.

 

 Are the Aussies on the cusp of a rare Ashes win in England?

I agree. Smith has a decent captaincy record. Yes he has sometimes shown poor body language, not always produced the wisest bowling changes but the man has an astute cricket brain. I expect Paine welcomes his imput.
