Ferguson looks good but still needs to do more before given the title of future Australian player. With
Tait, I think everyone has been blinded by the fact that he is quick. That takes wickets at first class level, he isn't accurate enough to succeed at international level. At international level (and any level of cricket) what gets wickets is balls consistently going through the "corrifor of uncertainty" with movement off the seam/in the air. Even Brett Lee has only been somewhat successful at international level and he is far quicker and more accurate than Tait.
Tait isn't that bad.. he is all over the shop but he tends to be to full often rather than to short and that;s the better of the two lengths.. plys he does move the ball through the air and off the seam.
With him what i've noticed is bowls alot of poor delivery but also alot of wicket takeing ones because he attacks the stumps.
