Pucs made a 50 today.
Sure as shit better than Finch and sure as shit better than him coming in at 6 or lower like he had him doing in the one dayers earlier on as if he wasn’t one of the best batsman in the country. As you said won’t work all the time and I’d probably steer clear of that being the opening replacement for one dayers but at t20 it seemed to have worked and I like it. Only thing is that heaps of Aussies are excelling in the opener position domestically and will probably snag it over him. Find him a place I. The top 6 in the t20 side for sure though. That hitting was not only destructive but beautiful.
Yeah I agree. But we don’t really have a locked in 4 in either format so Green might find a home there. I agree we need Smith in the t20 side. Has good tactics, great fielding and can be the lock of an innings.3 or 4, depending on the game situation.
Need a guy capable of holding it togethor instead of someone who just shrugs after trying to switch hit the bowler for 6 and just saying “it wasn’t my day”.
Yeah saw the handy 60 he scored today. In one day as well which he previously hadn’t excelled in. Really Excited to see some batsman get some domestic time over the next few months in Hardie, Phillipe, Pucovski, Green (when he can), Hunt, Sangha, Renshaw and Street. Really need some of these boys to stand up (less so Green but I think a good domestic season could get him to the scoring 100’s phase) and prove they aren’t a group of Nic Maddinson’s who can do well in domestic but haven’t suggested they can provide any use to the Aussie side.Pucs made a 50 today.
He has probably just about risen to Australia’s best batsman over the 3 formats. Definitely most in form batsman in the country right now as well in any form. Heard one of the commentators call him a bowling all-rounder. He’ll nah this kid if not a genuine all-rounder is a batting all-rounder. Scary what he can do. Putting the likes of Marsh and Stoinis who have been heralded as world class all rounders (mainly due to a lock of them existing) to shame really in just a few games in all formats in what about 18 months in the Aussie setup.He’s an absolute freak who is getting better and better all the time. A once in a couple of generations talent.
