WITH Australia’s bowling attack baked like an overcooked Christmas roast, Steve Smith must be a conjurer, cajoler, motivator and a head scratcher.

    AUSTRALIA’s pace attack was pushed to breaking point after the scorching Brisbane heat triggered a bowling meltdown against India.

    DAVID Hayes was forced to bunker down for a second night as raging fires burned out of control near his Lindsay Park property at Euroa.

    SHANE Warne has slammed paceman Mitchell Starc as “soft” and lacking presence as the second Test got underway. He might have a point.

    INJURED Australian skipper Michael Clarke provided running analysis of the second Test at the Gabba on day one via Twitter.
