The pride of the nation has once again been put on the line by a top-order batting collapse in Brisbane this morning.
Openers David Warner and Marcus Harris went cheaply in the first session and were quickly joined in the pavilion by Big Marnus Labuschagne and Matthew Wade.
The odd one out there being Steve Smith, who’s still at the crease with Cam Green.
That means the hopes of the nation are once again on Steve Smith’s shoulders. A loss here in Brisbane would result in a real arse-whipping from Australia at-large and probably spell the end of a few careers – some before they even got started.
Nevertheless, the game continues.
More to come.
