.....and same mistakes with team selection: why have Pope at 3 when he has never batted there for his county or country....and why move Root and Bairstow from their recent batting positions where they have been doing so well?Hip Priest wrote:New era, new captain, new coach, new mindset, same old fucking batting collapse. It's the hope that kills you!!!
Form players with Test technique and class like Compton and Brook should have been selected. Why Leach before Parky? At least Leach had the decency to commit hari-kari for Parky's sake!
And why charge extortionate entrance fees? Money rules the ECB.
But the biggest crime is to be found with those like Crawley who repeat endlesssly the mistakes that have got them out so many times before.
On the plus side, bowling and fielding were outstanding.
