You are one of the fast bowlers in a four-man bowling attack, consisting of three quicks and a spinner. It’s the first session of day one of a Test match, […]

DIZZY: Australians lacked discipline, not skill, in the UAE

7 Nov 2014

Australia struggled in the UAE against Pakistan but I would not say they battled. A battle tends to have two sides and is hard fought. It is difficult to say that this two Test series was a hard fought battle. There is no way to sugar coat it – this simply was a one-sided series. […]
