This is a massive banana skin for the Aussies. I can't find any prices for it on the bookies sites yet though.

Aus 7th in rankings??

"UNDERESTIMATING Bangladesh could cost Australia dearly later this month.

Steve Smithís men could fall as low as seventh if they lose both Tests in their two-match tour of Bangladesh.

And thatís not as unthinkable as it was just a few years ago. Just ask England.

The Tigers defeated England by 108 runs in October last year and came within 23 runs of dealing the tourists a 2-0 series whitewash. Mushfiqur Rahimís side looked to be on the cusp of chasing down a target of 286 to win the first Test of the series, fighting their way to 5-227 and then 8-263 before Ben Stokes saved the day for England with two wickets in two balls.

A 2-0 loss to Bangladesh would see Australia slip from a rating of 100 to 92 points, which would place it anywhere between fifth and seventh on the Test rankings. It should be noted that Australia can only fall to seventh if Sri Lanka manages to win its final Test against India.

The Australians currently sit fourth.

A 1-0 loss would see Australia drop to 94 points and slip to fifth behind New Zealand and a drawn series would also see Australia finish the campaign fifth on 97 points.

Conversely a 2-0 win for Australia would only garner one point for the side ó rating points are weighted, hence victories against lower ranked sides are worth little but losses are costly. Itís possible that would be enough to lift Australia back above England to third on the rankings but that would require Joe Rootís side losing its upcoming three-match series against the West Indies."

I can see some squeaky bum stuff v Bangers in this series.

When did Bangladesh last play a test? Against India? Can't remember any since.

Cheers, forgot about them. Guess there's been so much cricket (too much IMO) that it's all been a bit of a blur recently.

One of the most incompetent wicketkeepers to have ever played for Australia has been named fielding coach. Why don't they make him bowling coach as well?

... or to give him the benefit of the doubt as a coach, maybe he knew what to do but was incapable of doing it himself.

Wank good, Schweppes bad

"A dashing century from Peter Handscomb and a blistering 96 from Darwin product Jake Weatherald were the headline acts on day one of Australia's intra-squad match at Marrara Oval in Darwin.

At stumps, the Steve Smith XI was 2-32 in reply to the David Warner XI's 6-360 declared, captain Smith unbeaten on 11 alongside Glenn Maxwell (7).

Handscomb (105 from 130 deliveries) teamed up with Western Australia allrounder Hilton Cartwright (81 from 120) to move the Warner XI to a solid total against the Steve Smith XI after they found themselves in early trouble at 2-19.

Handscomb used his feet typically well, particularly to the leg-spin of Mitch Swepson (0-94 from 13 overs), clipping through midwicket and sweeping impressively. At one point the Victorian danced down the track to loft state teammate Glenn Maxwell for six over long on."

Not a great confidence booster for Swepson.

Sure looks like it, beams. Although I'd hazard a guess that the NT pitch is pretty flat.

David Warner retires hurt after being struck by a bouncer

The Australian
PETER LALOR
Senior sports writer
@plalor

David Warner is receiving medical attention after a chilling blow to the side of the neck during a practice game in Darwin this afternoon.

The opener was struck early in his second innings by team mate Josh Hazlewood.

Warner fell to his knees before getting up unassisted as Steve Smith, who was captaining the other XI, ran to his side. He walked immediately from the ground, met by medical staff on the way off who retrieved his bat and followed him to the dressing room.
A team spokesperson said the vice captain was applying an ice pack and had retired hurt and was in the hands of medical staff but seemed to be alright.

Warner appeared badly shaken by the incident, leaving the field as soon as he found his feet.

Warner was on hand when team mate Phillip Hughes was hit in the neck and killed by a cricket ball during a Sheffield Shield match in November 2014. The batsman ran for help and helped support Hughes as he was driven from the middle of the SCG.

The left hander was 2no out at the time and would have been hoping for more time in the middle after being dismissed for 4 in the previous innings.

Warner is in Darwin preparing for two Test tour of Bangladesh. The squad split in two and has used local cricketers to stage the intra-squad match at Darwinís Marrara Oval between a Steve Smith XI and David Warner XI/

Earlier Smith made 84 retired ad Glenn Maxwell 45 as the Smith XI declared on 6-181 in reply to the Warner XI 6-360 declared.

Just saw vision of this. GCS went down like a bag of shit. He was hit in the same part of the neck that Hughes was, but bounced up quickly.
