Kyle could **** on my front step and I'd still think he was God's gift to the world, and swing bowling in particular...but yeah, that wasn't great. In fact, it was a long way from it.Oh God Kyle Mills went full Danny Morrison and did a haka on TV. Can’t believe Old Man River let me down like this.
I assume McConchie and Ravindra are competing for the non-travelling-ODI-World-Cup-spinner-all-rounder spot. Or perhaps both are in consideration, one to cover Macewell ROB, one to cover Santner SLA. Over the last two seasons selectors seem to have been picking some T20I / test squad players with an eye on the World Cup in India Oct-Nov 2023.What’s the point of McConchie
Rachin's T20I bowling record is massively skewed by playing on those ridiculously fun bunsens in Bangladesh too.I've always held a theory that as a SLA spinner, you have to be pretty hopeless not to be reasonably effective. So really, given a bit of an opportunity, Chapman might be able to do a decent job as a spinner while not wasting a spot on Rachin. Their T20 (not T20I) bowling records are fairly similar.
I actually think Lister is worth a shot. Can swing it and can hit a yorker. Useful in both power play and at the death. Looked quite useful with transferable skills - when I've seen him in SS. Questions would be with his pace.Ah well at least Rachin seems to have bowled quite well. I guess this tour is also confirming some things we already sort of knew like: Chapman is ok, Rachin isn’t much use slogging down the order, Neesham is pretty iffy with bat and ball these days, Lister isn’t really up to it and Henry, while not a T20 bowler, is just better than most of his teammates.
