So why don't you pick on Finch? 3rd ball duck and can't make a run.
Why don't you pick on Hapscomb's wimp dismissal?
Khawaja's pissweak attempt?
Marsh tried to hit a bad ball as it deserved. So fkn what?
back to stats ?
This has left a man who has befuddled so many in the cricketing world because of his inconsistency with only 163 runs at 12.5 in his past 13 innings since his 156 against England in Sydney in the New Year's Test in January. ( from the SMH )
A closer examination reveals major issues, for he has failed to reach double figures in his past six innings (top score of seven) and has only done so twice in his past 10 knocks. Indeed, he has become the first Australian top-five batsman since 1888 to be dismissed for single figures six times in a row.
(from the SMH)
He averaged 3.5 in two Tests against Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates and only 18.37 in eight innings in South Africa during the tumultuous tour there in March but saved his spot with strong form in the Sheffield Shield and a century against the Proteas in a one-day international in Hobart (again)
Marsh has a modest Test average of 35 but this drops to only 22.76 in 13 innings in the prime batting spot, compared to 42.54 with two centuries in 22 innings at No. 5 and even 38.55 in 10 innings as an opener.
