Just bowled a testing delivery to one of the India lefties (Menaria) who had absolutely no idea and edged to slip.
That's no surprise - Mitch hasn't bowled in a match since March. He's supremely fit and carrying no injuries but is slightly rusty, and a bit bulkier (muscle wise, there's not an ounce of fat on him) than end of last season. 3-42 is a pretty damn first hitout for him, even if it was on a green one and luck went his way a bit. I was going to say he'll get quicker as the series goes on but he's off to South Africa with the Aces come next week.
And Blain, I take it the last C in CDC stands for cricketer...!
