    My boy Labuschagne! The highest wicket taker as well as the top scorer for his team (so far).

    I am genuinely surprised in how well he has fared with the ball in county cricket. Been bowling with reasonably good economy, surprising as he has always had a bit of a tendency to bowl the odd long hop. Obviously he is working pretty heavily on his bowling, seems to be paying off

    Pretty poor bowling attack if numbers 1-4 all have less than 9 wkts after 4 games

    ****, Labuschagne now scored his 3rd hundred in 4 games + 9 wkts at 34, now guaranteed to be a Langer smokie

    As someone pointed out earlier, they're playing on roads. Hence Labushagme's batting stats

    You only have to roll the ball out of the back of your hand to cause the Poms problems. They play wrist spin in Braille.

    Labuschagne with 182 gives him 527 runs @ 74.75 to go with his 9 wkts @ 34.33

    Siddle took 3-29 and 1-17 to now have 14 wkts @ 20.14 to go with his 85.00 batting average

    If Labuschagne plays ahead of Patterson, I'm gonna be so pissed off.

    Yet they can't bowl it to save themselves (with the red ball at least). Hear people talk Mason Crane up and frankly he is truly dreadful

    You should hate Crane Burgey, if not for him bowling continuous pies in that tour game, Jason Sangha would have probably not got his ton against England

    Just read a crap article where Harris was asked how he felt about Warner clipping at his heels for the Ashes...he answered correctly by saying Warner is already there, however how is Harris considered so much above Burns

    Harris - 6T, 327 runs @ 32.70, 2 fifties, 0 hundreds, FC average of 37.71

    Burns - 16T, 1123 runs @ 40.10, 4 fifties, 4 hundreds, FC average of 40.24

    He's not quite as good as his stats suggest. Watching him play for Queensland he seems to trigger batting collapses when the ball is doing a bit. He's probably least suited to English conditions.

    Having said that he's done more in one test than Harris did in 6, so he deserves more chances.

    Yeah tbf though he has made big runs against some ordinary teams on flat wickets in his Test career so far, and generally failed when the going gets a little bit tough. Not that he's really played in many tough conditions, IIRC. Seems to have missed out on the more challenging tours to Asia/SA etc. and keep getting picked for home Tests against NZ/WI/SL etc, and made a big ton away against weak NZ.

    looking at the stats that seems to be the case. Played 11 of his 16 tests at home and mostly against weak sides. The only typically challenging games he played in (vs SA and away vs SL) he failed miserably.

    It's perfectly understandable why people feel hesitant about his chances in England

    Hard for Burns to prove his worth overseas without getting a consistent run at it. He was poor against Sri Lanka and was dropped, since then he has been in and out of the team almost indiscriminately. Can't blame him for having a bad time in that Joburg test, flying in to an absolute crisis can't be easy at all.

    Ultimately I am completely undecided on Burns V Harris, both have strengths and weaknesses of their own, it should probably be decided by form between now than then.
