That's the point, James - I've read lots of comments about McCullum's attacking batting, but he wasn't trying to plonk the ball that bowled him. He was just pushing at it, was a bit frazzled, and the inswing beat him.
Yeah, I watched just about every game - Ross didn't have a memorable tournament. I thought he played a real Finch of an innings in the final, lots of nicks and dots and plods. Plenty of talk about his possible retirement, though I'm not sure how likely.
Yep, but how often are all your top-line bowlers fit and firing at the same time? If you need three decent fast bowlers in a side, you want five or six around the traps who can play at that level. Injuries will always take out bowlers here and there.
