    Yeah, not out. Still a **** shot though. How far it was outside off just shows how much better a shot bell's actually good at would've been

    One thing McCullum will defo be looking to improve during his captaincy are his reviews. There were some iffy ones in SA as well iirc.

    He can bowl too - but they didn't bowl him SA and may not see him as an option. That may hold him back
    1) Ross is Boss.
    2) See point 1.

    Think he meant out of the captains.

    Commies talking as if it's one of Root or Compton for the test side. Not both?

    And unlike his batting - he has a classically good action. You will really like it when you see him bowl. He is very average but easily as good as Nathan Astle and McMillan etc.

    I hate to think what Gayle or Warner (or McCullum for that matter) would do to Franklin if he bowled 125ks, gun barrel straight stuff to them

    I think he is very fortunate that the English openers havent really needed to take any unnecessary risks as there were lots of balls just dying to be belted
