Come on Aussies give us a bit of space and show some sympathy. We taught the rest of the world to play cricket. Now you are thrashing us.

what's happened to Fawad Ahmed?....he looks to have disappeared off the radar as far as the national team is concerned on all formats of the game

James Muirhead's selection may have been a big surprise to many but the moment I saw him bowl in a BBL T20 match recently I knew that he had all the potential to represent Australia in the near future. I was amazed that his name wasn't even mentioned at all either by the selectors or the media. In fact I wrote a comment in cricinfo at that time about two weeks ago about his impressive legspin bowling but was rather disappointed by his ordinary bowling action. I am sure with some good coaching his bowling action and approach to the wicket can be rectified. He is quite young and I reckon that he is definitely one of the finest spin bowlers currently in Australia.
