    The Mathews situation is crazy and its messing about with our plans as this guy is in and out of the team. What’s worse is in typical SLC style, they appoint him as captain – a bloke who misses more cricket than playing! Anji should be our number one batter and in the front line but firstly, he is hardly on the park and secondly when he is, he is hardly making any runs.

Australia faced a similar situation with their World cup winning captain Michael Clarke, but they quickly appointed Steve Smith after realizing that Clarke’s spinal problem can not be solved in a shorter time.
