    If it's the same comment I am thinking of, I kinda agree with him.

    No doubt the selectors have made Bailey T20 captain as they have bigger plans for him down the track. But Surely he is not among the top 6/7 T20 batsmen in the country. That being said if having a specialist captain is the difference that wins us the T20 world cup, then I won't be complaining.


    (For those who didn't hear the comment that I am thinking of, Nasser basically said that by bringing in Bailey Aus are handicapping themselves, as they basically HAVE to keep him in the team now no matter what even though there are better batsmen).

    We almost pulled it off last time, after all.

    Got a lot of respect for Clarke when he would consistently put himself lower down the order (and eventually retiring from t20is afterwards).

    Bit of a caribbean thing, these surname-for-first name/first name-for-surname monikers.

    Used to be a Trinidadian footballer called Stern John too.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Well that was neat and tidy. Smith confused by one that shaped back in... after two previous balls shaped back in.

    Starc is seriously progressing as a bowler at the moment. One more season and he'll be the completely finished product.

    Expecting big things from him itbt.

    This Charles character would probably be a decent bat against club standard bowlers.

    I'm calling him out as an international hack.

    Can't the Windies hide Charles somewhere else in the order? Has no idea.
