Rogers would get found out in no time in test cricket with his ghey pray mantis looking technique. Why are his runs I'm Shield cricket more valuable than Hughes'?
That's who Watto needs.
But yeah, as much as I've been a Cowan fan, he's had an extended run and he just keeps making starts and getting out. Really thought his ton in Brisbane would be the turning point for him but he's reverted to type. Can only have so many chances.

Cowan's never gonna be a star but he has been good at giving the team a start.His job is to see out the first 20 overs, get the score over fifty and occasionally go on to a big score. He has for the most part done this. He is the Bruce Laird for the current generation.
But the bigger question is who is going to take his place off him ?
Or at least, that's my perception without being bothered to look at a lot of stats on a Sunday morning.
Watson would replace Cowan you'd have to expect.

I'm not seeing how this aussie attack can take 20 wkts
Henriques, Doherty and Maxwell all take around 2 wkts per match in FC cricket, so that leaves 7 wkts each for Pattinson and Siddle...
....or maybe 6 wkts each if Maxwell and Warner can each get a run out with their x-factor
Selectors had a brain explosion. Didnt believe the lineup when I first saw it. A 2 man bowling attack after Lyon was dropped is a garbage selection.
Didnt see any play last night but it really is starting to look the Clarkeh is a one man band. I know people dont like Khawaja but I bet he would do better if given the chances Cowan has. His strong point is being a dour opener who bats time and removes the shine? Yet he doesnt even do that. If thats why your in the team I expect you to bat multiple sessions regularly because your not taking the risks a stroke making opener does.
Did Wade get injured during keeping throwdowns? Because that would just be priceless.
Australia's bowling attack, which was all time great, (McGrath, Warne, Gillespie and I've put Lee in for this version) combined for only 17 wickets per game on average going with your method. Does that mean Australia never took twenty wickets in a test?
If that's the result of an all time great side, I'm sure there a plenty of decent sides who don't get anywhere near that either.
The scream after Watsons dismissal is so good.
Reckon it would've had a greater effect if the screams were in place of the LBW shouts then cut back to the umpire raising his finger.
