Exactly both Patto and Cummins can bat.If the new ball is deadly, you pretty much always never need those extra bowling options.
I'd much rather extra batsmen considering this series is likely to be dominated by the ball.
They may bat to 9, but 7 of them average less than 30 in reality....
Cummins and Patto are certainly no mugs with the bat either, both of them average 20+
Also anyone who has seen Moeen Ali with the stick recently wouldn’t say they bat till 9.
