Henry if you went back and looked at the progression of our discussion you will see that you’ve created an argument out of nothing.
I made a comment that Handscomb was not established in the test team. Of course he’s not, he’s not even in the team. I said in the same post that he is in my best 11. How you managed to disgaree with me when we both agree on this point is ‘odd’.
I also said Marsh had a brilliant summer followed by 2 bad tours (ie SA & UAE). So it’s obvious I was talking about summer at home against the poms where Marsh batted 4 times and averaged 100+ (according to howstat).
The only point of disagreement is I’d pick MMarsh at 6 in tests at home this summer, not because he’s a standout selection but I want a 5th bowler so we don’t destroy the careers of 3 brilliant quicks and he is well ahead of the other options, not to mention his best is brilliant.
