I think he worked well on that issue with slashing and flashing outside off around 5th stump line. He is leaving those now. My bet is that we might see him getting out in that fashion sometimes but these things happen to every batsman.Not sure I qualify as someone with cricket knowledge, but I think there are a few definite issues with him when the ball moves, especially in the air. It's not just the England tour I base this on. I thought the same as you after that NZ tour that he'd ironed out that defect, but then he played Mathews' outswinger really badly in Sri Lanka a couple of times on helpful decks. Kept fishing for it on fifth stump with an angled bat. It's tough to say how much he's improved on that and there's really no way to tell for sure unless he gets to bat in those conditions again.
How exactly do green tracks produce a 0-0 series?Jeez that's a slimy cheap shot from Anderson, couldn't agree more, such sour grapes & poor sportsmanship.
Especially from a bowler who averages 25 at home and 35 away. Just seems really disingenuous given it's obvious that Kohli is one of the best 3 Test bats going around, & it's just a matter of time before he scores runs in England.
Does anyone with any cricket knowledge really question his technique not being good enough to succeed in England, given what he's done in both New Zealand and Australia in his last tours here. NZ in particular were green tracks.
Jesus, when teja is going this low what hope is there for everyone else?This weeks friendly reminder that Vampire James has an away average of 33.4 and will probably retire with it even higher.
It makes sense for him to know a lot about conditions hiding one's flaws.
It wouldn't happen in this scenario, but the image of Warner opening with Maddinson in Test cricket is simultaneously hilarious and terrifyingDepends a bit I think; Marsh isn't really an opener. I think they'd sooner play both than play Voges again, and Maddinson and Renshaw are probably competing for one spot to some extent at the moment.
