In reply to openning
Lubuchagne and Cummings particular innings were necessary for the games
Maxwell was going bezerk, and Head had the innings under control
with a less than 5 per over needed when Labuschagne entered.
Your mention of their strike rate in those two innings is disingenuous
and in my opinion seek to obfuscate the issue.
When a team is batting first on a good wicket,
I won't not expect or support a par 90 strike rate from the anchor.
I do not support a dependence on boundary balls,
as international bowlers generally do not give too much of those.
it is insulting to mention Kholi and Michael in the same quarters.
In all fairness, Kholi is an exceptional player,
thus a comparison is not really fair to Bravo.
better to compare him to lesser mortals.
I like and support Bravo,
but his missing years robbed him and Wondies or his best (IMO).
His batting has not evolved with the modern DOI.
i would like to see a player withdraw and he get selected
to see if the new and improved Bravo can cut it.
I mentioned in another tread here recently, that I had no issue with his selection
I also stated that i was concerned with his dot-ball percentage in a modern ODI
