A good day out at Hove for the AussiesZac Gelman |
The Australians batted a lot better in the second innings of their tour match against Sussex with most batsmen getting much needed runs under their belts. Marcus North remains a slight concern and is yet to prove that he is anything other than a one-hit Test wonder.
The bowling dilemma hasn’t gotten much easier ahead of the first Test. Johnson and Siddle are certainties, but the remaining two spots are still up for grabs between Clark, Lee, Hilfenhaus and Hauritz. I’d personally go for Clark and Lee with Hilfenhaus slightly unlucky to miss out. I feel he’s a bit too much of a one trick pony, however he does keep it tight and can bowl long spells, so if he was selected it wouldn’t be a complete disaster.
Anyways, for those that missed the action, Sussex Cricket have kindly posted highlights from each day’s play on their website – click here to watch.
