    A good bumper can still do him I think. But your line needs to be more off stump than leg stump. With his trigger movement that makes for a really awkward ball to play.

    How much of Smith’s mental toughness is because of bullying during his formative years?

    In the last 5-6 years only looked vulnerabke against left-arm offies. It's like KP from a few years back except on an even heightened level.

    Yep thatís Vaughanís reasoning for bringing Leach into the side for the second Test

    Normally I wouldn't advocate for picking a bowler to get a specific batsman but picking a guy to specifically get Smith is basically like picking someone to dismiss half of Australia.

    plus Leach's record as an opener is superior to Roy's

    Remember picking Xavier Doherty to get KP out and KP going on to get a double.

    Good times

    Yeah that was woeful. You don't pick a player who is significantly worse than another just because they happen to be the kind of player an opponent doesn't like.

    I'm pretty sure he was keeping Lyon out of the side. Either that or it was Hauritz, who had impressed to that point.

    iirc Lyon had achieved very little in first class cricket at that point (and really still has in the shield). Over Hauritz was stupid though.

    No Lyon wasn't on the radar. I don't know if he'd even played a Shield game yet. Lyon was picked for 2011 tour of Sri Lanka basically out of the T20 Bash. Was a pretty random selection.

    You might be right about Hauritz. He hadn't been terrible but tye selectors were tired of his mediocrity.
