Witch is weird because unlike Langer Martyn looks fantastic when he bats. Now that mark Waugh has gone he is our most elegent batsman.Mr Mxyzptlk said:It certainly wasn't slow. He got Langer syndrome... no matter how fast he scores, people always consider him a slow grafter...
Bevan always starts slowly - but the longer he is at the crease the larger his total, the better his strike rate (usually better than anyone else apart from the 'hitters'), and the more likely Australia will be in a winning position. IMO he is still one of the few batsmen I'd have as a 'go to' in ODI, just as I'd choose S Waugh in Tests!!!!juztinlanger said:I think Bevan shouldn't be accused. Sure he's not the fastest scorer, but think how many times he has saved Australia's bum. He doesnt have an average of 54 for nuttin.
As for Martyn, he's a bloody legend. He's shown hes capable.
Gilchrist opens in ODIs!anzac said:He is the ideal transition batsmen to hold the top together around the 'stroke players / hitters' - he just doesn't have the same 'big hit' reputation as those around him in the team - Hayden & Ponting above him, Lehman & Gilchrist below.
