    All out 147, five for Cummins. Not a bad start as captain.

    Got to get off to a decent start now after the rain stoppage. It may not be easy

    I would normally agree, but that wicket is green and being under then covers over a sticky hot Brisbane evening will not have helped it dry out any more. The new ball we zip and dart about like no tomorrow. Warner we know is suspect to a moving ball; Harris' technique is not there, we could be 2 for not much with Smith and Lambo exposed and a soft under belly to follow. Head is a mistake.

    I don't disagree. We are certainly susceptible - what I meant was I don't believe we are "just as likely to fold just as quickly". It could happen, but I think the chances are we will stand up better than they did.

    Well it is the English and Wales Cricket Board. He certainly does not support England in sports where there are distinct Welsh teams.

    Yeah I know I've been to Cardiff it's an awesome ground.

    They wanted Simon Jones!

    Think it's been 16 years since a Welshman played in the side and not many come to mind prior.

    Ask him if he likes Brains

    They don't say England and Wales in the team name either. It's a weird arrangement.

    But I wasn't judging your friend of course.

    Edit : Just checking populations Wales has 3.36 million NZ 5.08 wonder if they'll ever field their own side.

    My mate is from from the Western side of Wales, he sounds more like a scouser than a Welshman!
    Reckon maybe Geraint Jones was the last one, and Robert Croft a bit further back too
