Pretty much this. Starc is better than Pattinson these days but Pattinson is by no means a spent force, still have him a good level above the Neser/Abbott/x form Shield bowler tierwith shady and bambino here. pattinson's trading on what he was ten years ago, and county wickets don't count lol.
nowadays he's 138kph outswing which is fine. he's still got the tools to be a test bowler but starc has been comfortably outbowling him. pattinson's bowling "unlucky" length, getting plays and misses instead of edges because he's not quite full enough.
if Haze bowls anything like he did in England it’ll be a nightmareI never got the hype over Pattinson either. Yes, maybe, when he was very young, but he's looked distinctly first-change at best in every one of his comebacks since.
In any case, Lyon's more liable to cause us headaches on a consistent basis than the seamers.
Yeah pace options often descend into "picking the blokes we rate who are fit this week" pretty quickly, which does make having options great, because if you don't have them you end up with blokes you don't rate playing instead.Ehhhhhh fair enough.
Either way it's a good sign that this debate is even a thing, nice to have pace options
lol he's so oddLet's hope he doesn't run out of tape
But there other intricacies that only Smith can see and feel, such as the need to tape his boot laces beneath the bottom flaps of his pads so they aren't in his eyeline when he looks down that the crease in his batting stance.
To be fair, the bowlers have a years worth of experience playing as a unit together over last time, and starc seems to not be spraying the ball all over the place in test (probably jinxed it.) So wouldn't say bowlers are "exactly the same."So the good news is that the last time India toured Australia, the followng was the main 1-6 batting line up
The batting order will now be completely different with Warner, Smith and Labuschagne obviously being a class above all of the previous.
However the sobering thought is that the bowlers are exactly the same (and bowlers win matches don't they?)
