True.

The shorter form of the game encourages aggressive stroke play (slogging even) regardless of the quality of the delivery.

I tend to disagree, in part, to the question. In the age of professionalism and unprecedented time dedicated to their craft, it couldn't be too much to ask a batsman to adjust their approach and style for a longer stay at the crease.

On the other hand, there's still that split second desicion to be made in the heat of battle, backed in large by muscle memory and repition and there is a lot of T20 played.

Warner's record in ODI's and T20's is shite.
His test record is superior.

Playing T20's now affects ODI's in that.. if theres 100 runs to get off 10 overs - you think its attainable.
The aggressive batting filters through to tests.. You work out you can hit almost every ball for 4 if you really wanna

we as spectators might feel that way, but the players may think differently, when i was playing 100 runs in 10 overs was huge

I think the wickets that are being played on have been having a lot of impact. Also field placements has changed massively in the last decade, fields are tailored to individual batsman based on their favourite shots and other statistics. Bowlers have more developed plans as a result and so wickets fall a bit easier as to play a run scoring shot the batsman is taking more risk. This can be seen by the sheer amount of catches that have been taken compared to other modes of dismissal.

I don't think T20 really makes that much difference except that when players are only getting 2 rpo they may be more inclined to play rather than leave certain deliveries.

Not sure what that would be.. His last 2 games have been really good with the ball - 15 wickets

That Paki wicket-keeper goes real good. Safraz Ahmed or something.


Question: If your team is asked to tour Pakistan, do you go?

You do, but you pretty much isolate yourself to the stadium, and the team hotel.
I think they get $6k per test. Straya

what a fucking test match.. Both sides played well. Absolute nail biter on the last day leading into the final session. It felt like it was always an uphill battle, but you wanted India to win.Kohli is nothing short of a batting prodigy and he is definately worthy of the fucking legacy that accompanies the MRF symbol.
Nathan Lyon got man of the match. I mean sure it takes much skill to keep bowling for the amount of overs he did and to place them in the rough spots, but you sort of feel that he had the advantage because of the pitch. If anything Kohli deserved the motm because of his performance in times of intense pressure and expectation. I mean he scored tons in both innings, especially in the 2nd innings where he made the other batsmen look like jokes when he played lyon.

anyway good fucking game.. I am excite for coming tests.. hoping dhoni comes back into the side. Shame about clarke though. I have much respect for the man as a batsman and captain.

Both test matches have been sweet
Test 2 our tail wagged a fuckload, led by mitchell johson, and then the initial spell early on day 4 was winning as

Kohli is in the top 2 batsmen in the world with DeVilliers

theyre comfortably in the top 5

for me DeVilliers is number 1.. could easily be swayed for #2,3,4,5

-----------------------------------
Im glad Joe Burns is getting a run, instead of 34yo Cowan, 35yo Voges, and which ever other 30+ yr olds are considered. Wouldve preferred Burns over Shaun Marsh too

I'm picking the best player available, couldn't care if they're 50. I go

1. Rogers
2. Warner
3. Cowan
4. Burns
5. Shane Watson
6.
7. Haddin
8. Johnson
9. Lyon
10. Hazelwood
11. Harris

That was a good series.. It was closer than the scoreline read. SCG and Adelaide could've gone to India. Kohli went beast mode. Him and De Villiers should hopefully cut sick in the world cup

Im happy Joe Burns got some runs so he'll at least have another series (ashes) to cement his spot.

Current Spinners better than Lyon: Warne, Katich, Clarke, Dave Hussey

==================================================
To the ashes:

1. Warner
2. Rogers
3. Burns
4. Clarke
5. Smith
6. Mitch Marsh
7. Wade/Haddin
8. Johnson
9. Harris/Cummins
10. Hazlewood
11. Lyon/Warne Razz
