What a match that was.
After his first Test innings – 84 against Pakistan – the former England captain Ted Dexter was moved to predict a Test average of 50.When Sarwan came onto the scene someone of note (can't remember who) predicted he'd average 60. Assume that was in part due to a decent technique.
Was probably more hinting at what you wrote a couple of posts later. Some of the initial posts were looking to defensive only players.So are you saying that in West Indies dominance for 20 years and Australia’s for 10 years they didn’t have large periods in test matches where defensive batting was needed? Dude did you ever watch Stephen Waugh bat? Australia’s best batsman in there strongest period was really quite defensive and by his own admission only tried to hit the bad balls for runs. Of course West Indies and Australian batsmen in general were attacking nobody’s said otherwise.
