    It was a shocking dismissal though. Short of a length, didn't move and he's somehow edged it to slip? Pretty ordinary.

    Yeah, I thought I made it clear I wasn't commenting on the dismissal, which was Harris-level ******, but rather on how he looked before it. Seemed pretty compact and happy to play late. Which made the dismissal all the worse.

    Fact is TPC just makes mortals look really bad. And Bancroft is more mortal than most.

    More or less. It just shows the pitfalls of bringing a young player with minimal FC experience and straight away annointing them as the next best thing, when things go a bit wrong the weight of scrutiny is very high. Same reason I am glad Australia didn't pick Pucovski.

    Yeah I know Puc isn't an opener but the point stands

    Of course, I was just expanding on the discussion. My apologies if it came across that I was disagreeing with anything you were saying.
