Could Selectors Call-up KP?

No no, I’m not expecting and England recall for a one Mr Pietersen but whilst the batsman that Australia have selected for their Test team were floundering in a tour match against Sri Lanka, the one that they didn’t pick, Kurtis Patterson, amassed 259 runs (157 not out & 102 not out) without being dismissed!

Unlike KP2, the hugely exciting Jhye Richardson has been called up to Australia’s Test team. This move comes following injury to Josh Hazlewood. Richardson caught my eye in the Big Bash a couple of seasons ago and has been mightily impressive in international white-ball cricket recently.

Despite Richardson’s promise, with a World Cup and Ashes tour ahead, Australia will have serious concerns regarding the fragility of their bowling line-up… let alone their batting!

  1. Kurtis is an interesting one because he hasn’t played any Big Bash this year but is a great Sheffield Shield player. He is a canny and wise batter and could help the Aussies with their lack of experience and run scoring ability in their middle order. It will be interesting to see which batters from the CA XI that were selected for the Australian side play in the test match. I think Renshaw and Labuschagne will play but its Australia so who knows?
