Ponting doesn't think he can bowl SA out for under 425 on a good bowling pitch?
Will be great to have Geeves tour South Africa. Writes the best blogs, will give a great human insight into the thoughts of a touring bowler.For mind I would have gone with Magoffin as he is a tall hit the deck bowler. Also handy with the bat, I guess the selectors either feel hes too old or his pace is up to Test standard although they did pick McDonald as the 4th pacemen so...
But I'll take Geeves over McDonald, he can bat which the selectors love and bowls over 140km/h. Haven't seen him do much with the ball in the ODIs but probably does more in FC.
I do not understand what you are getting at.To those questioning Ponting's decision to bat on, the 10th wicket partnership is currently 32*... So long as they're just throwing the bat and not risking injury or wasting time trying to protect their wicket, that 30-odd runs could be the difference in the end. So long as there are the best part of 5 sessions left on this pitch, it doesn't really matter. When was the last time a young, fit, bowler was injured batting?
