- My dear old things, it's STW TMS!
Whilst that is going to make England’s job a lot (potentially – depending on how Labuschagne plays) easier it’s a real shame. You want both teams at full strength. It’s like when McGrath tripped on a ball and we made hay – does not feel quite the same when you win in those circumstances.
It does make letting him go back out to bat looking even more daft a decision.Posted 6 months agodannyhMember
While it’s good from a winning perspective I would like to have seen how he coped with Jofra on what’s been called the fastest pitch in England. We should see a decent win here if some of the batsmen can wake up.
Don’t get too carried away with the Jofra effect. Yes, he is capable of bowling a ball at 96mph, but Starc has hit 95mph himself, Cummins can bowl 90+ as can Pattinson. Hazlewood is also a match for every other available England bowler in purely pace terms.
Wickets that favour extreme pace are not to England’s advantage as we only have one truly express bowler, they have three.Posted 6 months ago
