    Yeah, reckon Rossco is due a big series after average one in Oz. Plus he averages something decent against everyone he's ever played except South Africa - time to make amends.

    Nice to see Levi in. P, Parnell and Ingram pretty lucky to still be around.

    According to Athlai, Philander is reminiscent of Andre Adams, and since Adams is king of the Plunket Shield, and Philander has some guy called Steyn who is better than him to bowl with, we are screwed.

    G Smith c Guptill b Martin for six consecutive golden ducks will still be hilarious though.

    If he is as good as Jesse Ryder that would be fine with me. What do we want from our 5th bowler really. Just want 10 overs a day no wickets for 30 please and thanks.

    If Grant Elliot is good enough to get a couple of test match wickets then I am sure that Wells can average 1 wicket a test.

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

    Grant Elliott isn't a terrible bowler though. Not a frontliner, but far from a part timer. I guess he fits in the "Scott Styris's heyday" category.

    I've got highlights of Australia 47 all out but it's over all too soon to make much of a judgement.

    That and I don't really stream cricket all that often.

    To be fair, no match involving Philander has been broadcast here, and our news coverage of cricket is mostly limited to "lol look how bad the Black Caps are HOLY **** WE BEAT AUSTRALIA!"

    Phlegm is the bloke who raves about Wells because he heard him on the radio and fell in love with Henry from a camera angle that never really showed him bowling. No need to be fair to that ****.

    Love is you on Jeets ****.

    I would never do such a thing to someone I've never met. I'm not PEWS here ffs. Henry has good statz and I want to know how he bowls. That's it ****.

    I do however, rave about Wells, especially now I know it annoys you so much.
