Delan, nice to hear from

Delan, nice to hear from you!
Thanks for sharing more info on Finch's performance in the domestic circuit.

Agree with you that in longest format weaknesses get exposed, but given the playing conditions nowadays (which often favor the bat), I think he might pull it off, after all, he is no mug with the bat. I feel the absence of Warner & Smith provides the perfect opportunity to try Finch in the longest format. Its now or never.

Despite being a good player Bailey gets few opportunities in shorter formats so the confidence level wouldn't be great.
So to drop him after playing just one series in which he did reasonably well isn't fair on the part of selectors. I think they should have given him at least one more series before dropping him from the Test team.
