Agreed, I’m sure he’ll be tested as teams work to find holes in his technique. But it was a promising start.

But in the right conditions two average sides can make some very entertaining cricket.

Tougher batting conditions produce better batters, the flatter Aussie wickets do nothing to help our batsmen when they tour. Warner in the recent Ashes is a perfect example of a fish out of water.

Bankers, builders or bin men, everyone gets the day off but this has made me realise how I’ve inadvertently used an English term in an Aussie article.

Thanks Paul. I’d never heard of Labuschagne before the Ashes warm up matches and in the first five minutes of his call up I just felt the poor guy was horribly out of his depth. But I was proven wrong and by the time Smith was set to return to the team Labuschagne had earned his place through merit.

It was a gritty, promising start and it was pleasing to see him score runs back home.

As for my wife….. the more runs he scores the more she dislikes him so it’s not going well at the minute.
