    Judging by his performance last year he might spent quite a bit of time on the bench, pending injuries off course. Hope they can get his head space right so that he can reach his potential!

    A lot of talent just a pity he can't control it better

      Don't forget our massive export market to the English cricket team. And lately the Aussie team.

      If you're referring to Mickey Arthur, you can honestly have him back.
