^Umm except that 50 came at a SR of 60 chasing 299 at a run a ball from the start. Whichever way you look at it there is no justification for that innings and I was one of the advocates for trying out Naeem at the top. He let me down badly. Kayes got a fluent 42 at a SR of 80+. And Kapali looked clueless? Really? He rotated the strike pretty well in my eyes other than being the most economical bowler of the day.
I'd still have Naeem in the team for the next game but I'd like him at 3. If we lose an early wicket then I'd delay his entry to the crease to avoid exposing him to the new ball for as long as possible.
