    Yep and it's not simply a case of him walking in. He had time to get back and catch it if he had better awareness of where he was. A very difficult catch and I wouldn't expect it from your stereotypical "big fast bowler", but a good fielder could've made that catch look almost comfortable.

    A better record than a number 8 bat and spinner?

    Did the skipper just call big bro "Matress" there?

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Ooops, Watling. Not so flash sans gloves, eh?
    Yeah Nathan McCullum is a complete hack of an international cricketer; even when he's effective he basically plays anti-cricket. They just don't anyone close to be an ODI standard spinner so he's the least offensive option in that he can bat a bit, is a good field and will usually manage to take 1/45 off 8 or something rather than completely going the journey. He does well in T20 cricket too and people manage to mix that up with being a good ODI player.

    I think both he and Ellis are essentially wasted spots though; I'd be looking to get more overs out of Williamson as a spin option which removes the need for McCullum, and I'd pick a proper bowler ahead of Ellis.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    Tbf to NcCullum in T20s and ODIs you can justify someone who concedes relatively few runs through the middle though doesn't take wickets, is a good fielder and contributes quick runs down the order. Passable bits and pieces and he's performed better for us in the last couple of years than before.

    Ellis is like NcCullum without the batting or fielding

    I'm generally a fan of Trott's but he needs to up the run-rate here, This is why we need KP top 3, and still think instead of Bell.
