“That’s been one of my mantras — focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.” Steve Jobs
“Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.” – Mahatma Gandhi
“Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren’t used to an environment where excellence is expected.” – Steve Jobs
“When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.” – Alexander Graham Bell
“For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ And whenever the answer has been ‘No’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.” – Steve Jobs
I just had the chance to read Shane Warne’s comments regarding Mitchell Starc’s bowling in this test. If you missed it the comments are best summarised by this quote:
“His body language has to be tougher. He just looks a bit nonchalant. A bit hunched shoulders. He just looks a bit soft.”
I rarely agree with Warne but I have to agree with him here. 0/17 off 3 overs from your first change fast bowler on the first day of a Gabba test match is just not good enough but is strangely cognisant with what we oft see from Starc in white clothes at this level.
I agree with the decision to drop Siddle: it had to happen. I was unsure about Starc as a replacement given his performances of the past. I hope that he can bounce back in the second session today otherwise Australia will be effectively one bowler down.
