Renshaw missing out for that campaigner in the UAE was the worst selection ever. Leaving a kid out with 6 tons and 4 50’s in the 5 months prior for a bloke whose first class coach never considered him an opener. Absolute disgrace and it annoys me that more people werent annoyed
Easy explained. 6.66 was tough asking rate on that wicket. All they had at that moment was momentum of two batsmen in form at crease that used to pace of pitch. Once we got one or two out was always going to be tough for Pakistan to finish it off with new batsmen coming in.
Hats off to the two Paki bats for getting them in a position like that to start with. Good even performance by the Aussies. Still concerned at top of our bating order but nevertheless, winning form is good habit to get into. Hopefully wickets in England are not just flat as our pace bowling group have enough fire power to do a lot of damage. Basically played our 7th to 8th pace bowlers in pecking order and got job done. This World Cup is as wide open as I ever seen in my life.
