"Straight out of England's Bumper Book of Balls ups"
- Mike Selvey on England's first innings collapse at The Gabba
With Hauritz out of the team and most likely Doherty in our batting is slightly weaker. So moving Smith up from 8 to 6 would be madness as he hasn't shown enough signs to show that he would be able to handle the move up the order.
Smith's batting average is going down quickly which was always going to happen.
I don't completely mind the fact that Smith is in our plans, but surely Smith batting at 6 against a good English team at the GABBA is not the best circumstances for a cricket so unproven like he is.
I was more saying North shouldn't be there at all, rather than who should be in his place. But, now you raise it, yeah I would rather have Smith.
But yeah, with Watson a genuine 4th seamer - Could see why a spin option could be handy. Shame they've picked the wrong two, though.
