    Ireland doesn't bat very low, if they want a miracle it has to happen with these guys.

    But I do hope he improves, because I would like to see Fletcher take the gloves for 20/20s and ODIs, leaving Ramdin to focus on improving his test game.
    Didn't Andre take catches and stump players with he kept wicket when we played Ireland in the warm up matches recently? he's ok with the gloves imo, and he can still improve, Ramdin seems to have lost all confidence with the bat and i think it's time to give Fletcher an extended period with the gloves, not just one game here and there, lets give him three or four games to see what he can really do behind the stumps, i believe his batting will improve with more experience too.

    They bat down to 9 tbh. Botha has five First Class hundreds.

    Oh missed Botha, rate him as a better bat than Johnston and Mooney. Johnston cant hit the ball a bit but I don't think these conditions are going to be conditions he can do anything on. Would probably bring Botha in next.

    Yeah it'll depend on the situation as to who comes out next. If a wicket falls soon it'll be Botha; Johnston and Mooney are more suited to the end of a T20 innings though so the 'plan' is generally for Botha to not bat at al.

    Botha should have probably came in for O'Brien ver II, he would be best to launch at the end. Mooney's crap.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.
