Millionaires lose the last test in a dead rubber.

Once upon a time, Australia liked to lose the last one.

Before that though they would beat you into the ground, turn up from the other side, and beat you out of the ground and so on.

Then, they would rest. And lose the last test. Murali Kartik would turn up. Clean them up in Mumbai.

Right now the Aussies look like they’ll lose to Middlesex. Murali would turn up.

And lose to the Railways. And Murali would turn up.

And lose to the Kolkata Knight Riders. And Murali would turn up. Worse, so would smug faced Saurav. A little late, but he would turn up.

So what’s losing a dead rubber to South Africa?

Just sing the Dead Rubber Blues.

Not that simple. This one at Sydney has more at stake than Perth and Melbourne.

It’s No. 1 at stake. That or burn at the stake.

More than word play. More about play.

Aussie hasn’t made the play all summer. It’s déjà vu all over again – India.

None of those beat you into the ground gambles. They just beat Symo into the ground, that’s all.

Ironical, a punter for a captain, yet such safe play.

If ever there was a time to send test cricket for another toss, it’s now.

The injuries are a heavensent. Time to rebuild, and give cricket its due.

C’mon Aussie C’mon!
