Parmi | #1 draft pick | Jake King is **** | Big Bash League tipping champion of the universeCome and Paint Turtle
Henriques - Better than expected, would be interesting to see him on a pitch that suits his bowling a bit more.
Abbott - Very impressive but beat up a very wounded opponent. Looks a better long term bet than Kleinveldt

India is really one of the places he'd struggle the most as a test bowler, so his performance today/yesterday was pretty encouraging. I'm also not convinced whether he'll be a good test bowler for a long time, as I'm not really sure he has enough weapons when the ball gets old, but he'll be a pretty handy new ball bowler when India visit England in 2014, and could form a decent pace trio with Yadav and someone else. He'll be a pretty good ODI bowler IMO, particularly with two new balls now in use, and I think he'll go really well in the Champions Trophy.
I'm not sure whether he can get the ball to reverse, but it is likely. Most successful medium pace bowlers in the the Ranji are capable of reverse swing with the SG ball. It's how they pick up wickets at such low averages.
