He's got it once or twice. You could see it was playing on Gill's mind when he first came on. Given there's nothing for him to aim at on the other side of the pitch, he's not losing anything by going around.He's trying to hit the crack Cummins hit earlier in the day.
So far no good; he's either not accurate enough or the crack isn't making the ball misbehave as he thought it would. Should go back over the wicket and just bowl normally IMO.
Nah he's annoyed about Starc going off the field because of the footholes when bowling around the wicket.
Paine either needs to get him to toss the ball up more or set the field for what he's bowling now. It's the half-arse strategy that frustrates.I do seem to remember Clarke trying to push Lyon to get it outside off more by setting fields that would encourage him to do so. I think the straighter line Lyon used to take gave him the ****s. Paine may just have set the field poorly, but he may also not have wanted Lyon to be pushing it down leg.
On a fifth day wicket where there's a hint of turn, spending a bit of time tossing it up outside off isn't the worst idea. Lyon seems to take more encouragement to do so than most.
It feels like a "default" field with no particular strategy or specific tactic to specific batsmen in mind. It's not an accident there have been so many balls at catchable height just wide or over fielders in this series, the field isn't being set with a great deal of precision IMO.Paine either needs to get him to toss the ball up more or set the field for what he's bowling now.
