Seriously, the Marshes at 3 and 4 In Australia's TEST team? As my annoying daughter always says, "REALLY?"

Mitchell Marsh is likely to go down as one of the most mediocre players to play 50+ Test for Aus (he is currently at 29 Tests).

His older brother has flattered to deceive for a very long time. He has made some fine tons for Aus (including a beauty on debut in Sri Lanka) but too often succumbs to poor shots or poor fitness.

Another piss poor collapse after a good start is rather infuriating.

Well done to the Ooze backing up his classy 1st innings knock with an unbeaten 50 in the 2nd. About all that can be achieved for Aus now is some personal milestones. Hopefully Head makes a maiden Test 50 or more. And it'd be nice if the leg-spinning SAffer can get a few runs as well.

The Marsh brothers results were consistent with my long expressed opinion of them

Mitch performed far better as wozzie captain last year than I thought he would ...VC was for a long time a poison chalice in the Oz team ....Puddle seems to be reviving that tradition

Given the talent NLAL has been given to work with (No Sandpaper Three and Renshaw underprepared) and the "seniority" of the Marshes in the selected XI they were the correct choice to bat at 3 and 4.

If Blowie or Lobster had been asked to bat there you would have cried out the Marshes were hiding

All players are prone to failing ....some Marshes are more prone than others

Oz has performed basically as predicted but we seem to be getting upset that they are

Even when Full strength the Puddle and Bog were a liability.

Great start to the final day for Aus. They couldn't, just maybe, possibly, whisper it, pinch this one could they?

A good start to Day 5, but one suspects this will go like the other instances of good starts by Aus in this Test - a wicket leading to a sharp collapse.

Kudos to Usman. I've never rated him outside Aust especially against spin but he's really put his head down & grafted for runs, unlike the rest of the team.

Credit to Ooze and Head, refreshing to see an Australian batsmen prepared to graft a innings out.

Over 4 an over is the issue maybe now. Not impossible to be there at the close is it?
