I’m a massive Patto fan mate, would love to see a Test featuring Starc, Hazelwood Cummins & Pattinson as the bowling attack. But hes averaging 16 with the bat (his last four knocks have been 3, 9, 0 and 6*) and 33 with the ball, so he is still working his way back into it. Maybe not as a genuine all-rounder but I would still like to see Patto play Test cricket for Australia again.

Thanks John, I appreciate the kind words.

I should have been clearer in describing Finch’s move down the order was more in relation to batting in the middle order throughout his first class rather than at the number 6 position. The main point I was making was that the pressure of opening, a new ball moving around and patchy form, a move down the order may release some of that pressure for him to play more of his natural game effectively.

While it wasn’t a well executed drive, Shaun Marsh can definitely play that shot well, as seen in the second innings, and to drag on from that far outside off stump is unlucky. Pat Cummins was literally nutmeg’d and it didn’t hit the stumps.

But thanks again for the advice, I’ll be a little more careful next time and I’ll be posting another one very shortly.
