Alok Kapali should have gone with the A team to South Africa and proven himself there.
I fear for both of these players. They may never be heard of again if the get torn up by the Australians.
I really WANT to be wrong....
LBW - I hear yea but for someone who hasn't seen the players first hand or not in a while can you elaborate as it appears you have more recent exposure?
With Kapali I'm guessing it's just the rust of not having faced a express, high-quality attack that will not give you too many 4 balls and fielding that is potentially asphyxiating. Similarly, an aggressive and powerful batting unit will probably treat loopy, slow-through-air leggies as canon-fodder.
But what would the issue for Hom? Bad technique? Lack of a gameplan against better attack? Nerves?
