Maybe it’s all about selection policies. AB and Steyn were throw into the top end with little experience… their talent was backed to the hilt. Ditto Ishant Sharma and ages ago, Zaheer Khan and Harbhajan Singh for India. But Australian selectors are so determined to have their players to have proven their mettle, that they wait and wait and wait on their best young players. When Symonds was not able to tour India, that was the best time to ground a talented youngster with little experience in Moises Henriques. an even better time is the next test.. a dead rubber. But they choose a limited but experienced guy instead…
On the other hand, we have had a bucketload of over-aggressive sledgers under the baggy green cap, does the cricketing world really need a preening prima-donna in Cristiano Ronaldo’s old neighbor in Madeira (as Henriques is).
