On average, how many chances will you give a currently non-performing player before you rotate him out of the playing eleven?
i dont think any player can get back in form in the nets...match and nets are whole different thing..But 1st class matches yah then its all right..i personally believed mash should have tried to get his form back in the DPL
on ur second note..we dont have a choice on mash as we have on ash...He is by far our best 1st bowler with the new ball..even with rubel and sofi doing well..we need mash..
