Good to see Marumani in the other squad as well. My opinion is that we expected token pics and we got them. It could have been far worse.

Watch Elton have a blinder of a week and make his way into the team for the ODIs :lol: on a serious note I'm not mad at him being picked for T20 cricket. Did he not win us a game last year? It's better than picking Ervine who can barely hit a 6.

The reason why we will keep losing t20 cricket is that we don't pick specialists. A team with Waller Elton PJ Zhuwao Mire and Hami would have stood a chance because it only would have taken 1 of them to tee off and it could have been curtains. Picking guys who don't have the natural ability to hit a 6 leads to what we saw this last week.

I think Zhuhai should probably be there in T20s. Just for the high risk high reward factor.

What plays against him is ZC are jewish with their selection money and don’t pick specialised players of all three formats.

They pick the squads for a one size fits all, with T20 getting shafted.

It's unfair to pick on Ervine for the T20s. The same game you are talking about that Elton won is the same series where Ervine was our best performer in every single game, and he did score 29 in said game too.

The problem is that we think T20s are all about hitting sixes and going big. We saw that with K-long and how he would just swing the bat. That is not the case. You need to have a good balance in the team. You have your big hitters, but you also have your guys who hold down an end and can rotate the strike regularly to keep the run rate ticking. You don't pick a team of only big hitters. That idea was tossed away ages ago. Ervine provides that platform so that others around him can go big. Ervine too can hit them big. He has his 13 sixes in his T20I career. Granted it is not much, but it disproves the theory that he can't clear the rope.

0 out of 10 for this interpole ripened ass.

Where are your ratings ?

Taylor was fully off colour in Bangladesh Series but since he scored 59 of 48 in last T20, he will get 6 out of 10 :)
