As well as Bancroft has batted, I'd be happier if he pulled off a neat stumping, or took a decent leg side catch.
Probably more important in the long term.

Even more important (to Smith at least): did he have good chat, and did he pat a few bowlers on the arse?

[EDIT]
I see that was the point you were making previously; I should read the thread in order!

It seems The Aussies like playing at The Gabba because it’s the only ground where it seems half the support in the ground isn’t English. They tend to split the English fans up somehow into smaller pockets at The Gabba.

Good call on Tim Paine it would seem; his sledging practice has paid off.

Just watching a fascinating interview of Mike Brearley by Mike Atherton.

Really good watch and thoroughly recommended.

So, Vince and Stoneman survie for another Test series (I can understand the latter far more than the former). Not seen Livingstone other than on ECB highlights clips, but I have to say his batting technique worries me. Maybe it is just that I've seen his attacking strokes, but he seems to play most shots with a diagonal bat and really whips his bottom hand through. Maybe a certain Australian player has shown that an unorthodox style can be successful at the highest level?

Which is basically all Ben Foakes has done. And I think that has been very short sighted. It's not as though the batsmen have shone. I definitely feel he should have been given a chance once the Ashes were lost
