They’re aiming for a start after midday

Many thanks JB, where can I get updates from? (Apart from RiotAct that is!)

HoldenC, I have to agree, it’s a shame, he’s a good keeper but not good enough to fill Gilly’s gloves.

Poor old Brad can’t take a trick at the moment. Even the weather has dumped him.

Any one know what’s happening about the chance of play today? I don’t want to go and sit in the rain! Phoning the ground gets no reply.

What about having Nathan Lyon and then we’d at least have a bloke who deserves his spot in the Test team.
