    will always be exceptions of course

    but once you hit 30, there's a fair body of work that's gone into producing your average

    plus, while there will of course be exceptions, generally you have less scope for improvement than a green horn in their 20s

    I'm sure he mixes a nice cordial as well. I'm not why you have brought Rogers into this though? What's it got to do with you being called on your silly assertion that Bailey's been picked on anything other than his recent ODI form?

    i meant to post your taste in the rogers thread but sparked it tbh

    nobody could say bailey's lo form didnt contribute to his selection, but had d00lander kicked the season off alright, or the other recent bats to have been given a run not burned their chances completely, his lo form would have stayed just that.

    Yeah not a Bailey fan but wasn't the worst decn to pick him considering. Now we know its a blue lets just not do it again. Rogers though deserved a chance especially when he wasn't up against much.

    reckon we're getting one of three options for the first saffa test

    doolan at 3 and watson at 6
    doolan at 6 and watson at 3
    forkers at 7 haddin at 6 and no doolan

    and i have to say i dont watch shield cricket, very rarely anyway, and ive only seen doolan in bigbash and ryobi, but he looked very good. however if you can use bailey's fc average against him, you can't ignore it in regards to doolan either.

    as i said, a lack of options, and you've said it yourself before that we are very thin on the ground in terms of reliable batting talent.

    and i'll say again, thank **** smith (and hadds, and rogers) have kicked on here or we'd be trying to fit half a batsman into 2 and a half spots. at least its only 1 spot up for grabs

    The irony is that we could have easily carried Hughes rather than Bailey with how we have batted. Makes me think the selectors will go with Forkers.

    That is probably the most depressing list I have read in a long time.
