Australia’s policy of favouring pacemen who can top 140km/h is alive and well after prolific wicket-taker Jackson Bird was beaten to the Test squad by an underdone Nathan Coulter-Nile and a left-field selection in Scott Boland.
Despite fielding a team laced with rookies and without the services of their best bowler, Australia earned a comprehensive series victory over the highly rated Kiwis in Adelaide yesterday.
Nathan Lyon is a number 11 batsman. This Adelaide day-night Test has produced conditions which have made it difficult for even top order batsmen to make runs.
Finally, a contest. After two matches which offered minimal intrigue, this first day-night Test is in a fine position after Day 1.
It is not just the New Zealand bowling attack which has a point to prove in the Adelaide Tests. The Australian bowlers must improve significantly, particularly in the way they operate as a unit.
“Just pick the best 11 players to win the next Test. Forget about their age or the future”. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve heard cricket fans make this short-sighted statement about the Australian Test team.
