"Cricketer saying and doing things that will most help them get selected" is hardly a stunning indictment tbh.
Problem with Watson is that his versatility has given selectors the excuse to move him about to cover for the team's deficiencies elsewhere. Been justifiable in the circumstances I suppose but he could use a definite role now. I kind of think his attitude to bowling has been made in light of his fitness history as well as his recent bad run. You'd think that the no. of overs he bowled in Hobart would be exceptional and that he should be slotted back in at 6 and bowling again.
chappell is annoying the **** out of me
At what stage does this innings fall into the "too ****ing slow" category without an acceleration?
I think if you get to 15 overs left with 7 wickets left in hand you go from there. Malinga still has 5 left so it's not going to be easy.
