    Test cricket is a funny animal. Steve Smith leaving a ball alone demonstrates as much skill as hitting fours.

    Warner fails again, Smith couragous, our bowlers very good, our fielding not so much. England batted well. All in all, a very good test match so far. Hats off to Smith.

    English Sports Minister condemns crowd who booed Smith.

    'Distasteful': UK sports minister condemns England fans for booing Steve Smith

    EDIT......

    I found this very interesting comment from Dave Warner, back when Du Plessis was fined for tampering with the ball.

    Du Plessis was found guilty of ball-tampering by the International Cricket Council. He had previously been fined half his match fee for scuffing the ball on the zip of his trousers against Pakistan in 2013.The charge did not result from any accusations by Australia but vice-captain David Warner told reporters afterwards: "We hold our heads high and I'd be very disappointed if one of our team members did that. "The rules are in place for a reason. If you're not going to use them why bother having them?"If you're going to overstep the mark, be prepared to get fined and miss Test matches."Punishment: Du Plessis fined 100% of his match fee and given three penalty points





    Remember Mike Atherton, English Captain?

    England captain Mike Atherton was in the crosshairs in 1994 when he was accused of ball-tampering during the Lord's Test against South Africa.After TV pictures appeared to show him applying dirt to the ball, Atherton insisted he had only "put some dust in my pocket from a used pitch... to keep my hands and the ball dry".His defence was that, in trying to keep the moisture off the ball, he was therefore seeking to maintain its condition, rather than alter it. There are varying accounts of exactly what Atherton told match referee Peter Burge, who chose a fine rather than a ban.Punishment: Atherton fined 2,000

    Time for the real Warner to stand up. And the team to carry the weight. Can't wait for the confrontations in this test.Test cricket is back, baby.



    Warner will relish added burden: Paine

    Just finished watching Rabbits Vs Broncos, a ball tearer of a game, switched to the cricket, and Australia have England 6 for 54, Warner 4 catches, to hell with Trump and Iran, all is well in the World.
