School Boy/Girl Captain
**** umpires call
From commentary and his FC record it does sound like he is a batsman first and spinner 2nd but yeah certainly looks capable of bowling wicket taking deliveries even if it comes with the inconsistency of a non specialist spinner.He really gives it a good rip does Mendis. Length has been a bit all over the place, but something to build on for sure
Scary thought. That cover drive he played just now goes to show what a talent he can be on these sort of turners. Against the turn, using his wrists to generate power while keeping the ball down, superb.Got to say I think Buttler is really getting to grips with test match batting now. Just looks very assured at the crease. India will present a much more difficult challenge with their pace attack but he looks good
The reports I've read suggest this is also down to a lot of work in the nets to correct issues. I hope it's the making of him in Asia. Whilst we've been critical of the openers Crawley got a brute by all accounts today. I still have faith in the top three.Got to say whatever happens from here this is probably Sibley's best test knock, under pressure after 3 failures and he has played very well today in a tense situation.
