Thanks, Geoff! Means a lot, mate.
Yeah, Babar is indeed a class act but he still has a long way to go. Such a pleasing player to the eye.

Babar Azam: The hero Pakistan cricket needs, not the one it deserves

Yeah, they sure do. I didn’t exactly focus on the recent eras. I tried to focus more on the statistical aspect of the bowlers rather than the contextual aspects. So as far as stats go (number of wickets and lowest bowling averages), these three non-Englishmen top the list at the Home of Cricket.

Arguably, yes.

Thank you for taking the time to go through the piece. Woof, I always thought Richard Hadlee to be that aggressive pacer that runs in and straightaway aims to extract the demons out of the trough. I thought Malcolm Marshall had the more tricky mind: like the ones who barely make their presence felt on the field through their physique or gallantry. But, in reality, they always manage to outthink the opposition under crunch situations.
But yeah, thanks for the insight. Also, Bob Massie would have indeed taken over the 26-mark had he been able to feature in more games at the Home of Cricket.

Do you feel that England’s fragile-looking top-order can withstand the potent Australian pace attack? Home advantage is one thing but the pressure of delivering at your own backyard is another.

Green seamers and barmy crowds: Everything you need to know about the 2019 Ashes venues

Got a strong feeling that Australia are gonna defy history and their horrid results at the Edgbaston (they are yet to win a single game of any format at the venue since 2001!), this time around. They have got a far better and potent bowling attack and with the return of the once-villainous trio in the batting order, stability has been instilled into this Aussie side that has suddenly bolstered with positive energy. I see this one going 3-1 to Australia.

Familiar optimism, but does UK Ashes success finally beckon for Australia?
