    Not so fast Djokovic and good for Australia. Hopefully Nadal will get healthy enough to stop him at Roland Garros.

    Djokovic visa cancelled and ordered to leave Australia. The media claim that he is under armed guard, not that that means anything, given all border police airside are armed.

    I hope Djokovic is refused entry and gets booted out of Australia. Such a self centred, self entitled individual.

    It will be good politics for PM Morrison if that happens.

    Well, isn't it ultimately the government that decides whether or not an anti-vaxxer can enter the country? Maybe he should do a little more than make comments.

    After all the mystery he allowed to fester, the exhausting rhetorical games he played, now we know the truth. The world’s best tennis player really is No-Vaxx Djokovic after all.

    ...Top doubles player Jamie Murray already went there, telling the Daily Mirror: “I think if it was me that wasn’t vaccinated, I wouldn’t be getting an exemption.”

    What happened?
    We got a hiding.
    So much for being ranked world #1, and having won the world test championship a few months ago.

    Congratulations to Bangladesh finally beating us.

    There's a big difference between being bowled out and giving away your wicket. I didn't watch the test, so it will be interesting to see how the same attack deals with a competent side.

    Still shorter than a six-day race!

    One thing to note is that I read recently about how few balls in recent times would actually hit the stumps if the batsmen missed. If that is the case, then that indicates that giving away the wicket might be closer to the mark.

    It's a shame we couldn't rerun the England innings facing disciplined bowlers like DK Lillee or Michael Holding who would hit the stumps (or ribs) every single time except once every two overs to encourage a rash shot - relentless pressure.

    Oh, and to fix Tauriki's autocorrect error, the Ashes are purported to be the remains of a cricket bail (or bails) not ball. Bails are the little cylindrical bits of wood that sit on top of the vertical stumps.
    Maybe autocorrect is actually correct, and that the urn contains the ashes of a pair of English balls

    Cos they certainly got no balls these days.

    The only trouble with that El Toro is that the Poms were not even close to finishing the journey.
