3 centuries in 4 innings.
I'm resigned to him getting a recall now. He is one of the ECB's golden boys and they recalled him last year off the back of one solitary century after averaging about 30 for the season. Then he came back for England, guess what, he averaged 20 over the course of his 10 or so innings.
He struggled with the New Zealand and Aussie quicks in English conditions, they really exposed the shortcomings of his technique. What do the ECB think will happen when Rabada, Morkel steam in, and more importantly when Starc, Cummins and Hazlecrack come for him down under?
Literally the only hope we have is either him getting injured or having an absolute nightmare of a season after this round of matches.
