Have this for an unlikely, yet hilarious analogy.
Selecting a spinner is like choosing a pair of shoes. ……… A spinner must be worn in over a period of time, he must be given time to mould himself to the shape that the team needs and, if he starts to sag a little, he shouldn’t be thrown out, but repaired.
Andrew Hilditch, however, is the Imelda Marcos of selectors………. 🙂
