    Don't like his bowling action...love his run up though. Very balanced.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    He actually resembles Bond a fair bit appearance-wise IMO.

    Similar hairstyle, and has that Bondy look up after he bowls.

    Oh God. This is the kind of thread that Scaly spots on the forum and practically creams himself in excitement even before he opens it.

    I have something for Scaly.

    James Franklin fans won't like it though.

    Very slight resemblance, but that's all

    I thought I heard Danny Morisson saying that he was clocked in Queensland in the high 140's/low 150's during the EPT, so I would imagine that once he gets back to a more comfortable climate we'll see him bowling an extra yard faster. Other than the pace though, he was pretty much what I always imagined him to be. Big, strong, erratic and...kinda dumb. His ploy of bowling yorkers in his first spell was very odd, given a good back of a length would've been very challenging at his pace.

    It'll be hard for him if he's picked in the tests against India. I would prefer if we waited and debuted him against Pakistan at home. But there's no doubt that a bowler with his pace and ability to swing it might be a useful player one day. Big might though.

    I didn't think he was meaning to bowl yorkers - just think he was over pitching due to nerves and not having that much rhythm.

    With an action like that his accuracy and speed will depend very much on how 'in the zone' he is feeling. First ball 143k's - well once he is feeling comfortable he'll easily get much quicker.

    Wouldn't mind Bennett having a go at Sehwag with the short ball tbh.

    Provided it's well directed at the body.

    Bennett has the ball on a string. Of course he meant to bowl yorkers.
