IT'S good Mathews is returning. he is not playing good cricket. no use of having him in the team as a free bull.

It was embarrassing watching Mathews struggling against the short ball against Windies. Gabriel was hitting 150 kph so it was not easy but Mathews is an experienced player who had batted in South Africa and Australia before and should have been hooking and pulling many of those balls he was taking in the body.

Come'on... Tell me something new please. This is so recurring, it has been part of our team culture...

Not sure what the personal reasons are but lets show some respect as it could be a death in the family or other family issues. At the same token we cannot have this guy walk in and out of the team for what ever reason, its totally destabilizing. Just look his peers in other countries - hardly miss a test and here we have our main man missing more than playing and it shows in his numbers.
