Astle hasn't really had an impact this summer. Not saying Nethula is the right choice, but I can understand why they would leave Todd Astle out rather than play him against Kallis and co.
Yeah, I wouldn't pick Astle either of course. But even in what you'd call a slight down year his number over the last two and a half seasons **** all over Nethula's.

Has Astle worked out whether he's a batting or bowling allrounder yet?
His FC numbers are actually a bit better than I thought, I probably would take him over Nethula.

I'm pleased as a 'backfootpunch' with Nethula's selection in the squad!

^Not an expert on Easts if Dry is the leg spinner then as of 2 months ago yes he was still playing. He pushes them through quite quickly so I would not have him before Tarun. That said he was too good for NaeNae while I was watching from the sidelines. Looks good in a headband too.
In other news, Mark Watson wants to know the difference between Boult, Arnel and Gillespie.
Unfortunately the NRL intervened before someone could at least tell him Boult bowls with his left arm.
Can someone tell me a bit about Tarun Nethula?
