What BD need is someone like Rajin Saleh who is willing to play a lot of balls, he may not have kicked on enough (didn’t get to triple figures even once) but he played a lot of balls which can help the other batters. I’d beinterested to see the numbers of who has played the most innings facing 100+ balls or even 80+ balls. From what I saw skimming through some numbers quickly of current and even older generation players Rajin Saleh seems to have been the best at this by quite some distance, but like said would be interested to see a more in depth look at this. Of course an average of 25/26 isn’t good enough which is why he got dropped but at least he had the proper intent.
