    So you reckon Smith's fallen to shite in 10 months? Or Younis in 24?

    Speaking of 24 months, did you know Faf has the 17th most runs in the last 24 months, at 39? Latham 20th most runs @ 53. What a couple of absolute spuds.

    Maybe I should've picked Marcus Harris to get someone in real hot form.

    I still don't know what point you're trying to make?

    And again, I don't know where I said my batting was better?

    Seems like you may not be following how the batting situation is at all itbt.

    Though the irony is that Harris almost scored as many in 4 Tests as Latham has in two years against meaningful bowling attacks

    No, I appreciate that there's a dearth of exceptional Test quality batsmen around at the moment and so the best in this comp might not mean that it's an exceptional lineup.

    I'd appreciate it if you could try and clarify the point you wished to make with regards to Smith and Khan though? I have no idea where you were going with that

    On closer inspection Harris has scored less Test runs in the last two years than Tim Southee. Maybe try batting him at 8?

    Smith hasn't played Tests. Smith is getting "I'm not playing Tests" owned, same as Khan.

    Less weird when you find out Marcuss' team is called HYDRA

    Yeah, but your point about who has played more games in the last 12 months? Did you just not do your research?

    Also not sure if you're aware but (a) Smith has still been playing cricket, Younis hasn't and (b) Younis averaged sub-30 on his way out of the door

    2 years is now 12 months? Well FMD, a mathematical breakthrough, someone needs to tell CERN. The world as we know it has changed.

    Oh you're referring to the games that are counted in CPL and not the Latham/Faf years thing alright. Yeah neither have played a FC game in 10 months despite Smith's team playing plenty of matches.

    Don't get me wrong I absolutely think Smith is the best batsman in the world, but will CPL think he might've retired or is injured?

    Maybe Cribb installed a "banned due to cheating" button after Amir, Butt and Asif got the kick.

    The whole thing is a strawman anyway because I've never talked up my batting and I thought picking Smith was a risk so... :Shrug:

    I'm interested in what batting top 6 you think is actually better than mine. Cribb did concede I probably do have the best top 5. Whats your hot take of the batting eh Marcuss?
