lol lol lol lol lol

With the utmost respect Sir Powen, Alzarri Joseph was the only International quality bowler in that lineup!!! It was an incredible and impressive innings by Shai but I wouldn't buy that much into it!!!

With that logic Andre Russell is the best player in the World!!!

Hindsight is 20/20 but Ppl push every type of player especially in this format who is supposedly better, but a cricketer is a cricketer, and a batsman is a batsman.

He is no imposter. Our players just need to be managed better and allowed to play their specific roles.

Sadly...

One would win money every time IF one betted that Hety and Pooran will not finish the job or get out stupidly...or watch the bowler SET the field and then hit the ball STRAIGHT to the man placed to catch him.

ah lie?

That’s the benefit of 67 FC matches where you understand a little bit more about the process of batting.

People point to his poor test record but when you subtract his test record that is 29 FC matches and 7 FC Tons.

I do have a soft spot for Hetmyer, but unless both of them have a mindset shift theirs will be a limited ceiling. It doesn’t escape me that today Pakistan wipe off 200 with out loss in a T20 run chase led by two proper FC batsmen.

Hetty does not give out a lot about team plan and strategy. Remember last night after the toss he also said that he was not sure whether he would have batted or bowled when asked.

He gives vague answers ...

That inning last evening should be good for a confidence booster.
It is good to see back to back half centuries, especially the last one, where to assured his team victory.
I am not going to jump and wave after two innings, I leave that for all the Monady morning Quarterbacks.

Shai Hope wasn’t inexplicably omitted from the World Cup Squad.

Let’s keep some perspective and not think the WC squad was selected based on 2 future innings

One can argue all day against Cariah, and I’ll support them

Jeez Pow big grin
