  1. Finally, Thiri has to make way after years (and years) of failures despite numerous chances. It’s crazy this guy averages in the low 20’s in test cricket after all these years and still gets picked and still pokes around like a novice.

    I like that Mickey says about Kusal – he has the x factor! Been saying this for years, even when he was raking up ducks like a chook farmer! He has something few others offer and you don’t just find arguments to keep him out but arguments to keep him in. He is now our premier white ball batter and the holder of the “greatest test innings of all time” and we are still wondering if he belongs at test level! Its a classic case of all the talent in the world is of little use in the hand of an idiot.
