Always pick a spinner. Always.
When selectors are so sure about a pitch and feel that they ‘know’ what it’s going to be like, to the extent that they don’t even countenance the possibility that a spinner might be of use, we love to see them proved wrong.
Not just proved wrong, but ‘us appearing on TV demonstrating how to dance and look cool’ wrong.
How much more wrong could you be? The answer, of course, is none. None more wrong.
Irritatingly, Australia’s selectors don’t seem to be all that wrong so far.
