Well, we bounced back. But it was a dead cat bounce.
Peter Siddle did his level best, producing three wickets of his own, and awarding two to his mate Mitch via a workmanlike couple of catches. But let’s face it, Australia just can’t play cricket any more.
Until CA (Cricket Australia) wake up and sack Ponting and Clarke, and select players on form rather than on mates and enemies criteria, we ain’t going’ nowhere. But CA aren’t going to wake up until someone shakes them. The entire Australian cricketing environment needs reorganisation in the same way that the football codes have been reorganised over the past few years.
Don’t hold your breath. 😥
