FTR I'm not saying it should be ballsy. But it's definitely on the ballsy side by most national selector standards.It really wouldn't be ballsy at all. Records are in the past, now is what matters, or the only way guys would drop out of the team is if they retire. There's a frustrating inability to admit the obvious. Just because somebody has bene good in the past doesn't mean they deserve to stay in the team if there is someone better now. Incumbency is taken too far as a concept.
Neither are wade tier of lol-bad to spin and that's all that we need to worry about honestly. Inglis is the better batsmen vs spin and has a higher ceiling than carey, but carey has marginally better fc stats and is an established international cricketer in odi's, don't mind either.I don't think there is a huge gulf between Inglis and Carey as batsmen. Both are better than Paine by a considerable margin
I've said this before too that there are 3 tours to the subcontinent for this WTC cycle. So keeping up to spin is massively important and I have no idea who is better at it. Maybe Inglis slightly
Fairly safe to say he is, was our best bat bar smith and marn in the india series on debut and has done nothing wrong domestically since then, top run scored in the shield after that and averaging 40-odd this season.Yeah, I think Carey will get the gig too.
