Australian selectors believe Phillip Hughes is "confused" about his technique in the fall-out to the short-ball blitz by England, which is why he was overlooked for the Test squad to face West Indies.

wilter, Monday, 23 November 2009 23:40 (nine years ago) Permalink

'blitz'

he was dismissed 3 times, one to an inside-edge caught-behind off an attacking flash, one to a leg-side strangle, and one dubious low slip-catch...the dude's been unlucky imo

my fave thing to do on the computer is what im doing right now (acoleuthic), Monday, 23 November 2009 23:56 (nine years ago) Permalink

anyway I'm cool with the Perth result - sets up a better series innit. and I said this beforehand.

oh yeah if Australia drop Ponting and Clarke and Hughes and pick a couple of in-form batsmen instead, England are fucked. I suggest Baby Boof, Nathan Hauritz and that 19 year-old NSW chap
