    Samaraweera averaged 50+ in last non-SC tours. There's no reason why he could not repeat the feat

    Hmm I dunno, he has fell victim to black magic in the past. I hope you're right, but it's a tough thing to shake.

    Darren Berry thinks the prince should come in
    Darren Lehmann thinks Usman should come in
    Shane Warne thinks Quiney should come in

    Not predictable at all
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Hughes is in the process of completely re-working his technique, and I'd much rather he did that in domestic cricket than at Test level. We already recalled him once mid-adjustment all it did was confuse the living **** out of him. If he's happy with the changes he's made and confident in taking them in Test cricket already then fair enough but I don't think that's really the case yet. I'm still confident he'll end up a very good Test player but having him bat three or four with a semi-adjusted technique isn't a great idea at this point IMO.

    I've said enough about Khawaja's technique on here without going over it again.

    I backed Quiney to actually hit some runs in the Tests he played but his poor off stump judgement - which I did mention before his debut - was really exposed.

    I almost want to say Burns. I'm a fan. True preference is Cosgrove but it's not going to happen.

    Good series to Cosgrove a lash, with Greig not commentating this series Ch9 would avoid the backlash from when Tony inevitably made a pun about Cosgrove eating all those tiny little sri-lankans.

    he seems to be much advanced this time though. like, almost in the 'this is done, now let's test drive' stage. but i could be wrong. i'm not sure how i could prove i was right

    It's difficult for me to make a call on it without actually talking to him about it or at least watching him bat more in the Shield than I have this season. If he reckons he's got his 'new' technique sorted and that he's ready for Tests again then I'm prepared to back that, but I don't want a repeat of what we did to him last time so it's a big if.

    The Prince's leg side play has certainly improved 800%. Has a pull shot now, so that makes up 790% of the improvement.

    I'm much more worried about him edging outside off than I am about him being tied down on the leg side itbt, although obviously the fact that he's scoring runs on the leg side suggests he's more balanced at the crease now.
