    Funny how when Phil Hughes' shocking technique against swing - for the entire world to see - brought up questions about whether he would have played well against South Africa and your first line of defence was summoning cricinfo stats to defend your boi.

    But Rogers' stats don't stack up because you went and saw him for a couple of Shield games.

    Tell us more about the cognitive dissonance behind the edgy larrikin.

    Swann's a non-event. Unless there's dust bowls for him the series won't be decided by how he bowls to lefties.

    Using stats in conjunction with visual evidence is fine.

    Using the former without the latter like you do all too often?

    No thank you.

    Nah ****, it's a wake up call to Watson. Either bowl, or we'll bring this other **** in to bat seven or so and bowl a few overs.

    Not convinced he's the answer, mind you. But he may well get a bit out of the conditions in Blighty.

    If Starc gets injured and we've got a batsman out of form I think there is definitely a chance that we'll move Haddin up to 6 and play Faulkner for variety in a 4 man pace attack batting at 7.

    He wont start the series, but I think that is his best chance.

    Forkers needs to make his stock ball more dangerous to be a real force with the ball. He has outstanding change ups in the short form, but the effectiveness of those are reduced significantly when batsmen aren't trying to take you big every over.

    I would have gone Moises for the alternative allrounder spot if we had to pick one, however I wouldn't have played one at all so it doesn't really matter.

    Has Rogers done enough to earn a Test place or not?

    Would he perform better against an older ball and fatigued bowlers?

    Of course not, because like Katich, Chanderpaul and Smith he would never score runs because he has a displeasing technique to an armchair cricket analyst.

    Deadset, this posting on your part belongs on the Roar.

    What happens if he chooses to kill you first?

    It matters if he plays a test, ****.

    This post is the pitts. Well, not the pitts, probably the norm.

    Go away, watch him play, then come back and talk to me about it when you have more weight than 'his cricinfo profile says this' behind you. Absolute gutter and I will not respond to you further on this matter until you do so, though I won't hold my breath on that because it's easier for you to just go on cricinfo.
