Expect the Pakistan middle order as a whole to do well. But lose both tests by around 150 runs anyway.
They can't possibly do worse than last time around, can they?God, this Pak attack will get bloody murdered. Why are T20 bowlers being tried in the test format?
The new domestic format certainly hasn't deepened the player pool just yet.
Haven't had time to follow any cricket of late. I hope Pak can at least put a decent performance in the tests. Have 0 interest in the T20s.
I remember seeing him play a Shield game at the WACA where he got absolutely slaughtered, couldn't land two in the same spot. Simon Mackin also had an absolute shocker that game, one of the worst team bowling performances I have seen.
He'll make Tahir look like Warne. Yikes.
WA play QLD in a 50 over match on the same day. With Heazlett injured, Bryant is a likely starter.^ why would CA not pick D'Arcy Short or Max Bryant in a game like this?
Thanks, now I understand, just players not playing in the Marsh Cup.WA play QLD in a 50 over match on the same day. With Heazlett injured, Bryant is a likely starter.
Yes. Smith's captaincy ban doesn't finish until the end of this season and there's no reason to dump Paine as captain unless you drop him from the Test side. Which I can see an argument for, but I don't think he's been so bad he has to be dropped...despite my ATG rant in the Stokes match.Is Paine still captain of the test side?
