In relation to Smith marking his guard, I find the whole idea of him being some quirky, misunderstood batting savant a bit strange.  It doesn't really matter if marking his guard when he is fielding is just something he does - he shouldn't be doing it.  He shouldn't be walking near the crease, let alone standing on the crease and/or marking his guard.  It's just odd behaviour and umpires should stop him doing it.

I thought the Australia team came across really well on that Amazon series, but it’s annoying they’re trying to come across as a changed team when they still resort to unpleasantness when under pressure. Paine is constantly talked up as some good bloke, probably because he’s captain while not being very good at cricket and also a more sophisticated sledger than some, but he clearly put that into question with his comments to Ashwin (in fairness, there are less acceptable players to insult). I’m all for good banter on the field, but he hardly sets an example in being a gent.

Also Labuschagne and Smith - wonderful cricket players, but as well as their mannerisms being weird, it’s even weirder how much Labuschagne seems to idolise Smith.

Nearly the perfect start - Curran so close to an LBW!

Missed every single wicket so far since I got up, for one reason or another :lol:

This is going to be a s*** series if these keep doing this.

since 70 odd for 3 they've chucked all their wickets away. Are they aware they have 5 days to get through both innings?

You just know England are going to get skittled for 60 odd here.

Bess somehow has a 5-for, I don't think even bowled particularly well, thought Leach was better. :lol:

Was he still bowling full of a length? That was my big criticism of him during the summer - the talent is there - just a few rough edges to smooth out

Sure I heard them mention he’d been working with Herath, can only be a good thing.

There's a lot of talent and ability there but their execution and temperament has been appalling today. Was well worth setting my alarm for 4.30am mind.

Great day that, looked slightly ropey when Crawley got out, but Root and Bairstow batted really well, and put on a great partnership.
