What are the excuses this time? If a day's play can be ignored for the expiry of an Australian cricketer, then one day's play should have been postponed for today as a mark of respect. Salams

Time to put in some front line off spinners.With our best bowler on the sidelines and the most economical off spinner also sidelined. Time to look for young Off spinners. WE do have some excellent leg spinners at least three ,give them a chance. Unfortunately run rate is so slow at the start it puts a tremendous burdon on middle order. This reflects a state of mind. Time for a change Or is it futile expectation from these selectors and management. National culture of clinging to the past also contributes to not inducting young players.
