What vic­to­ries hide

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - Letters -

Luck­ily, we have won the first two Tests and the Aus­tralian bat­ting line-up has es­caped the close scru­tiny of selec­tors.

I sug­gested be­fore this se­ries started, that the last six in the lineup would outscore the first five. Well, af­ter three com­pleted in­nings, it goes some­thing like this. 197/125 186/243 56/78. Pretty im­pres­sive stuff.

If the Aus­tralian bats­men aren’t on a “road” or con­fronted with a ball that swings, this is what you get.

It’s been like that for many sea­sons now. Richie Blanch, New­cas­tle
