Where’s Pat Farhart when you need him? Australia need those magic hands, even if previous quotes hint that they might tamper with spin bowlers from time to time.
Already without Nathan Bracken, Brett Lee, Peter Siddle and James Hopes, Australia’s bowling attack now has to cope without Moises Henriques because he too is injured. This is on top of the absences of Michael Clarke, Brad Haddin, Callum Ferguson and Tim Paine.
Different people, different injuries, but is there any chance that any were brought about as a direct or indirect consequence of Australia basically being on tour since February? It’s a surprise they don’t schedule in-flight matches to be played down the aisle.
This is why everyone in the frigging world is saying cricketers should play less. We don’t want to watch Moises Henriques’ replacement. How is that international cricket if he’s barely good enough to play for his state?
