    Kulasekara's batting has actually come on leaps and bounds in the last year or two. Fortunately though it's been more as a hitter he's developed; if anything he's actually less suited to this situation than he used to be when he was a more limited but more compact batsman. Certainly far from a mug though.

    Yeah his bowling has got worse as this spell has progressed. Time for Jeets again.

    Speaking of Kula, would you pick him in the Test XI in Australia considering he only gets it through at120-125 kms?

    need to get through angelo here to speed this up. no idea how we're going to do that though. not enough bounce in the wicket to play the compulsive hook shot game again.

    all we're doing with tastle is getting Kula's eye in.

    Yeah absolutely, especially considering which Australian venues they're playing at. I've always been one of his biggest fans of this forum (I even started a thread about him years back) so I'm probably not the right guy to ask, but he's so much better than their other seam options that it isn't funny; he has to play.

    Really comes down to a combination of whether or not the new ball swings & how quickly it starts getting dark after tea. If it swings a lot and we get 80-90 minutes at them after tea, I back us to win it.

    Yeah I've always had a bit of time for him too but I don't think he's fully fit at the moment and he bowls complete and utter pies when he's not at the top of his game. Playing Randiv would be pointless AFAIC so they're going to need three quicks anyway; dropping one of their current quicks isn't going to help there.

    Kane on next over imo. Race through to the new ball and he might lull them into a false sense of security.

    Yeah I agree with both of these posts

    Or he's just going to hit anyway

    Certainly a far cry from this match saving innings, so far...

    EDIT: Although tbf he hit two sixes there too. I remember it a lot differently to what it was it seems.
