    Come on Peterson! You need a big score, and Smith would be nice if you had the time to keep your wicket and get some runs…

  • @Richard Ferguson (Comment 19) :

    And he continues the great start, hitting three boundaries off the first three balls. Is he looking at a big score here?

    He moves past Alan Border as the captain to score the most runs in test cricket.

  • @klempie (Comment 38) :

    Deciding who plays and who doesnt.

    Thats what selectors are for.

    Remember the clash he had with Haroon Lorgat??

    That was because he didnt agree with the team selection.

    As far as I know, the captain and coach have a say in team selection but the buck stops with the selectors.

    They select the team and get input from coach and captain.
