When did Jimmy lose the job??

But asides from that I hate that we sent Finn in as night-watchman.

I'm totally anti night-watchman at the best of times but particularly in this sort of situation. The game can't be won so all we are playing for is momentum for the next test and some mind games.

The pitch is a frigging road and Trott not coming out to bat is a show of weakness. More of the mind games will be lost tomorrow morning when Finn goes out.

We could have made a statement here and done a Gabba 2010 with a massive 2nd innings score for the loss of 1 or 2 wickets....unless Finn manages to score a hundred that wont be happening now.

Shit idea.

I think it did make a statement, it says that our number 10 bat can get a 50 and bat for over 4 hours ;)

LOL, fair call......Finn did play a blinder, reckon he might have the job nailed from now on.

Still don't like it though......not often it works out like this.

I have to agree with you though, if you can't rely on your number 3 batsman to go out and see off a couple of overs at the end of the day, it does say something!!!


Just thought the hindsight of it was funny ;)
