I was very disappointed in the attitude of both Khawaja & Burns on Boxing day,after each of them reached their century they lost complete interest in the game,especially Khawaja who looked TOTALLY BORED as I was with them both.when he was at the bowlers end he was looking around at anything,(probably thinking about his evening meal),I have been watching test cricket for more years than I care to remember but I have never before seen the attitude that these two appeared to have.Iwot be surprised if BBcricket overtakes test cricket in popularity if other players adapt this attitude.
I didn't watch it. For me Cricket has gone in the wrong direction, I'm old school gentleman's game. There are many problems with the modern game which include the money triopoly (India, Australia, England). Twenty20 money chasers who choose dollars instead of their country. The concert nod to the sky everytime a century is score and other issues that I can't think of right now. I'm hoping my current malaise will pass, but I think the great game needs to change.
Get your kids in 2 cricket!
Why do the selectors keep picking Khawaja?? you don't have to be a Rhodes Scholar to see he is simply NOT GOOD ENOUGH TO JUSTIFY WEARING THE AUSTRALIAN BAGGY GREEN CAP. several players have been given far too many chances in recent years,(including the Marsh cousins),Rogers,and the biggest flop of them all WATSON. god it took the selectors years to get rid of that useless git. and now there is talk of Lehman & Maxwell coming in to the test side,heaven help us,if they are the best we can use I suggest we start looking at some of the Aussie female players ......One final remark. For gods sake get rid of Clarke from the commentary team, he has about as much personality as Andy Murray the Tennis player.
