Serious Doubts about Simmons

Hendra 2021-11-21 11:31:31 

The WI coach not only in terms of the poor results under his leadership but in terms f the strange decisions that are made. For example why play 3 spinners against against country that's comfortable against spin and rest an experienced fast bowler like Roach. Baffling. Our bowling attack looks so feeble.

Was Roach rested? I think not.

Not issue with playing three spinners in the conditions. The question is more about the experience and skills given the conditions and quality of batsmanship.

I ain't knocking Simmons here though his reproduction has been less than stellar.

We need to show some fight with bat to set the tone rest of tour

I agree, Simmonds have been making risky and IMO illogical decisions for the last two years, no way many coaches will play Gabriel in front of Roach, going on recent form and fitness. On the last Bangladesh tour, the team included many players from his country who were mediocre F/C players, pass their prime, who after the tour were never heard about again.

The truth is we are playing a better team in their conditions.
