If the French noblesse had been capable of playing cricket with their peasants, their chateaux would never have been burnt. - G M Trevelyan
Bah humbug.wearing the harry-optimistic-hat, I'd say he has the physical attributes, his height makes him different from our other seamers - and, if used well, is a tremendous asset (can we get Curtly to coach him?)Our pace bowling attack is ok, but fragile. I wouldnt pick Broad to bowl for my life, Sidearse is surely on his last legs, Pierce isn't a test bowler, I think Onions could be the new Hoggy, but he isnt yet, and p'raps should be by now.So if Finn can develop, he could make a massive difference to our Ashes chances. That is a huge "if"...What this test has done, I hope, is given him the confidence to bowl "properly". All bowlers - all sportsmen - know the value of confidence. It won't last long if he gets a pasting, but it's a fantastic start.
It's a long way, literally and metaphorically, from an overcast St Johns Wood in May to a very hot Brisbane in November.
...we're allowed to dream, aren't we ;)C'mon, join in the excitement and fevered anticipation!I read today that Adam Gilchrist, no less, rates him highly ... although he does also admit to never having met or seen him
New Cricket Bats all round i reckon!
