He is in a good head space and contributes a lot to the team even without the runs.

Yeah he's been absolute quality. I wanted Neesham or BJ as I thought they were slightly better and, especially Neesham, will be around for a while. Happy to be wrong ☺

Have to say that I would be leaning towards Mills and Vettori to join Southee and Boult as our starting attack Vs Sri Lanka

I'd agree except i'd probably have Mccleneghan instead of Boult for that raw wicket taking power.

Nah, unless England get one of these two soon I reckon they'll still have it by about 20 runs. Broad's having a poo poo old time of it, and Woakes is playing.

Might be an idea to play Smith at three in test cricket. His technique might have him in trouble against a ball swinging all over the place but he's better than Watson against all bowling.

Scylo

I agree but the problem with having Smith at 3 is that Watson is useless once the field starts to get spread a bit, so he'd basically become even worse

Bailey has been quite bad lately. With Watson and Clarke likely back soonish I wonder if Watson will take finch's spot and Clarke will take baileys.

Bailey has turned into a walking wicket. He was exceptional in 2013, and I'm hoping he can recapture that, though he may not have much more chances.

I think the worst part about the Australian commentators is their complete lack of knowledge about any players that aren't Australian. It's pathetic.

It is isn't it. Chappell is actually pretty good but the rest are disgraceful. Mark Nicholas has no excuse, he writes for cricinfo and broadcasts cricket around the world

Part of me is hoping that Channel Nine have a wider variety of commentators for the world cup. No reason they couldn't have a guest commentator for every single match Australia play but they probably won't bother

It's this, but it is because it is Channel 9 mandated. They aren't allowed to speak negatively about any Australian players, and also it seems that they are actively discouraged from talking about the opposition. If someone takes 7 wickets, or scores 100+ then they may say "well X has done well against the AWESOME AUSSIES" but apart from that it's 100% wall to wall Watto Big Show matey matey blokey bloke wanking.

It's about finding that next group of core players we can win with in the next 6, 8, 10 years. Let's face it, it's hard for 20-, 21-, 22-year-olds to lead an NHL team. Look at the playoffs.
