Mitchell Marsh included in Australian team for Perth Test
Cabinet. Anyone remember him? He used to go ga-ga over Cook. Even if the guy played 300 Tests, he'd not rack up more than 15000 Test runs and nowhere near 50 Test tons. He's as good as done. He might as well quit now.
Remember also how people derided a 39 year old Tendulkar, in his twilight, for averaging mid-30s in his much touted twin debacle tours of Eng & Aus! I mean just put that in context against Cook, who should be in his prime right about now! Any day I'd take him or Pietersen over blue eyed boy, Cook. Compare how they dumped Pietersen after topping the averages - will they do that to Cook or Root?! Well, Cook maybe surely, but they won't dare touch their other blue eyed boy, Root - another supposed genius in his prime?! Where's Cabinet? I'd love to watch him squirm, and writhe in his chair as he tries desperately, in vain, to spin it for us.
Why i cant open the highlights. Its keep saying content rejected.
eng. 191 for 2
cook 100 not out
Aus lead series 3/0 with one to go
