Usman and Marsh's strike rate are huge issues imo. They don't have another gear on recent evidence. I know they are both decent t20 players, previously elite in Shaun's case, but they haven't shown much attacking upside in ODIs. I dno if we can have a 'holding' player who can't go above a 100 SR when needed. Smith is that kind of holding player, but he can amp it up if we need quick runs.

If you have a slow run rate you bring Maxi into the top 4

Fox are firing up for the Cup as they are broadcasting some classic matches. The '07 domination by the Aussies still amazes me.
Ricky belting the shit out of India in the 03’ final is my favorite cricket innings ever. Got it recorded, will watch over the weekend.

Still can't go past Michael Bevan's famous last ball win. My favourite cricket memory. **** Australia had a cracking team back in those days.

My old man was at that game, sitting 5 rows back, to the right of the sight screen, to this day reckons it's still his favourite sporting moment ever, and he consumes a shit load of sport.

Watching that game, you just knew he was gonna do it too. He was hitting them so well that innings.

I remember being at a New Years Day party and watching this game. The Aussies were something like 6-38 chasing 180. Needless to say, I was fucking hammered but still a match that I will never forget.

Could happen but SA’s batting is really thin. At least de Kock is still out there.
