    Re: Third Test Australia v India - January 7th to 11th - SCG (at this stage)

    If suggesting that someone's team mates don't like him and that he is a dickhead is beyond the line then yes. I'd be amazed though if this was the nastiest thing said during the test from both sides.......though maybe the game has become more sanitised than I though.

    I'd be happy enough for the stump mics to be turned off.......but you know, apparently it's entertaining to listen to banal chatter in between deliveries.

    I don't think the actual sledge crossed the line, I think Paine just came across as a petty douchenugget.

    The sledging is whatever, but its just another example of the diversionary tactics employed to keep the public from noticing that we continue to go out of our way to pick a guy who is clearly not international standard to be the captain for some reason?

    Drops three catches? Never mind its his *leadership* thatís let us down, and no one is madder than Paine. What a leader.

    Fails with the bat again? Burnt another review on a clear non-wicket? How about some fín consistency with the DRS!

    Has India 5 for -200 with an injured guy at the crease? Better put in a deep point and fine leg. Tactical brilliance yet again from the guy who thought 5 guys on the fence with one wicket to get against England would help us win the Ashes.

    Iím so over it. He has to go.

    No way, it has all been pretty tame since he took over as captain.

    Not sure why all the hate towards Tim. He was touted as a future leader some ten years ago and I think he has done a great job.

    As for his keeping, just look at the numbers and you will find he is up there with the best. Yes he dropped a couple this test, happens to the best.

    Drops three catches? Never mind its his *leadership* that’s let us down, and no one is madder than Paine. What a leader.

    Fails with the bat again? Burnt another review on a clear non-wicket? How about some f’n consistency with the DRS!

    Has India 5 for -200 with an injured guy at the crease? Better put in a deep point and fine leg. Tactical brilliance yet again from the guy who thought 5 guys on the fence with one wicket to get against England would help us win the Ashes.

    Never scored a hundred in 34 Tests. His keeping just isn't good enough to make up for the fact that he is very average with the bat and given how fragile our top 6 are (aside from Smith and Marnus), we need more batting class from our keeper.

    That's the reason why I asked the question as I don't quite see what prompted his apology

    It could have made a huge difference to the result

    Remarkable the way India defied us and I think they will go into the next game with some ascendancy despite a growing injury list
    I've always held that the keeper sets the fielding standards for the team. If the wicketkeeper can't do his job then the whole team's fielding tends to be below par.

    Am I surprised that we dropped so many catches yesterday with Tim Paine wearing the gloves? Not really, no.

    Paine is a very conservative reactive captain too. His field settings, especially late in the day, were very poor. They were not really saving runs and neither were enough men in catching positions. Overall he's done a pretty meh job this series, for my money he has run out of credits.

    I would suggest the mollycoddling of the BCCI in lieu of them doing us a massive favour by going to Brisbane has something to do with the initial sledge and the subsequent apology.

    The racism issues at the ground wouldn't have helped either.

    Not even this current Australian cricket team and management is into the level of self-masochism being displayed all by itself in this instance, there's definitely something behind it and the fact Paine forced himself into referring to him in the third person probably backs that up. Cracking performance.
