No probs with that view point. It worked for TC against Canberra.
Although he did seem to start to feel the old hamstring before half time
according to the commentary & as he didn't start the game, that doesn't
auger well for the Ashes.
They are a going to be a damn site more intense than the VWCC so if the
Aussies know he's injured it could back fire.
After his comments on Monday night though, I think Bradley Clyde is
praying that Edwards is picked for the Ashes.
