    They use whoever they can get, and because there is decent money in country cricket for talented players they get a lot of them from all over the place. its no different that African American imports naturalising and playing basketball for Australia or someone like Karrmichael Hunt doing similar. It doesnt worry me, if they want to play for england then they are english.

    Tom Curran, one of the backup quicks, is a Yarpie.

    You'd reckon he's half a chance of debuting before the tour is done and dusted.

    They could at least find a saffer that can bowl 140+ and made the series a contest.
