I Don’t Like Cricket, Oh No

Scott Wickstein has a good preview of the Windies/Australia test that started last night. Since it’s already started though, let’s take a look at the big news so far.

  • Australia chose to play both spinners. (Leaving out Martin Love)
  • With Hogg, Bichel and Lee in the side, Gilchrist moves to #6, and either Bichel or Hogg will be #7. In one day matches Australia has chosen Hogg ahead of Bichel, but Bichel’s good form should see him get the #7 spot. If he continues to bat well, he becomes what we have lacked since, well forever. A genuine test All-Rounder.
  • Bichel has already chipped in with 3 wickets, including Lara. Not a bad start.
  • Brett Lee dismissed debutant opener Devon Smith LBW, after it came basically off the middle of the bat onto his pad. A truly disgraceful decision by Rudi Koertzen.
  • Four LBW’s in the first innings. That is a lot.
  • The West Indies are awful and we will win 4-0 barring a double century by Lara.
