    So a few things

    1. We just had a big sub content tour this year. We did pretty well considering the doctored wickets in india (you can even look it up in the Indian press). But still lost the majority of tests. Because the mcg and scg are now drop ins they don't spin anymore so we get pummeled on spining wickets.

    2. New Zealand actually have a really good side, Kane Williamson and Taylor are playing really well, they bat deep, and have a reasonable bowling attack. I've watched alot of nz test matches, it works well in Australia, and you can get about 12-16 hours of straight cricket if it all lines up.....lol

    3. Anderson will still get his century soon

    4. That has to be one if the worst days for England in the last 20 years

    5. I don't care for international t20, to me they are overshadowed by the leagues.


    edit: Also why doesn't malan bowl more? he looks like a very competent part timer, good flight , landing them well.
