I noted today that Simon Katich again failed to make a substantial contribution, against Northamptonshire. I’m one of many Englishmen who hasn’t really seen the best of Katich, and I’m keen to know more from those that have. Quite why Mike Hussey isn’t in the current Test side, in replace of Katich, is beyond me. Hussey seems to be at least his equal with the bat, and an outstanding outfielder.
Aside from Hussey, who else do Australia have in the pipeline? Batsmen can often “go on” longer than bowlers, but it would obviously be in Australia’s great interest to introduce some younger batsmen sooner rather than later. What, and who, is Australia’s batting future?
