When he took over the captaincy, I thought that this bloke could never fill the shoes of a bona fide legend like Ponting... But he is doing a good job. His batting is second to none. I watched him hit a triple century.. The man has classA record for Brisbane, I believe? Hell of a knock.
We were lucky, methinks. Firstly, we did not select a specialist spinner. That was a big (and costly) oversight. Then, we lost JP Duminy, due to an Achilles tendon injury. He WAS our spinning option, so losing him, meant that we had to resort to untested part-timers, costing us a lot of runs.
For once, our fasties were well contained. Good, methinks. They were flying, and it is always good to be humbled once every often
Great rugby the weekend! France 33, Australia 6!
