    Yeah I agree basically except I would have stuck the boot into him more with my choice of words - you have chosen to be measured and accurate with your words.
    We really needed him to come through in the final and he flaked out on us...would be the way I would put it.
    1) Ross is Boss.
    2) See point 1.

    Leading the charge against nuances being used in posts.

    Overrated XI M Bracewell, Burns, Rahane, Don Voges, Bairstow, Alecz Day, Donovan Grobelaar, Luke Ronchi, Faulkner, Dan Christian, Permaul

    Bit harsh on Ronchi. The only opportunities he got were at the end of the innings where he had to slog. Sure he failed against Aus and SA but that's only 2 genuine failures in my mind, and the dismissal against SA could be counted as unlucky.

    He's undoubtedly icing, he just didn't have much opportunity. He was definitely the right choice over Watling to bat 7.

    If we want to make the argument for Watling then it would be in the top 5.

    I think most people see Watling in for Elliott, Latham for McCullum and Neesham/Munro for Ronchi as the main changes for 2019, as far as retirements go.
