Macewell objectively the superior bowler in this XI
Why am I always thinking Tickner is a leftiedoes tickner swing it? never seen him swing the ball... also he's right arm
Kuggeleijn, despite popular belief, has had plenty of chances (incl. A tours, not so much ODIs) and has been decidedly average. He's not the future.We're kind of sneakily building up a lot of legit international standard options in the wider limited overs squads atm. Mitchell, Allen, Chapman, Phillips, M Bracewell. Neesham seems to good in the T20Is to forget about him in ODIs. You've got huge competition for spots now. Fast bowling has been a bit of a miss but admittedly I've never rated Tickner or Duffy. Honestly N Smith should've been picked and Kuggeleiijn despite his indiscretions always looked a much better player than either of them. Hard to say much about Sears because I just haven't seen much of him. Spin bowling you've still got Santner, Sodhi, Rippon, M Bracewell.
I can see why Duffy was picked, after a pretty decent domestic record and he has some good basic tools to work with. Good he's had some international experience now, but if we were to get more from him he needs some intensive work with a bowling coach to get some more zip and options to be more effective at international level.Yep. I've never seen anything from Kuggeleijn. Reasonably quick, but doesn't do much with the ball from what I've seen. But yeah, Tickner and Duffy aren't much chop either, it seems.
Sadly that's under-cooking it to say the least...Hardly been a tour of consistently convincing performances, has it?
He should be one of the first names in this team. Has that elite mentality that a bunch of these players sorely lackNeesham is quite a come back artist isn't he? Every time they try to cut him, he seems to come back roaring. As hard as they want they can try but the man is here to stay for few years I think.
