Moores & Moeen - questions Colin Graves will ask

Moores & Moeen - questions Colin Graves will ask
moores--moeen-questions-colin-graves-will-ask


If Colin Graves is a man of his word, then there http://www.authenticmetsshop.com/authentic-18-darryl-strawberry-jersey.html will soon be an inquiry under way at the England and Wales Cricket Board. In March, Graves - who will start as ECB chairman on 15 May - said there would be "some enquiries" if England did not win the Test series against what he called a "mediocre" West Indies team. A three-day defeat in the third Test meant England could only draw the series 1-1, a final low point of a winter that has included humiliation at the World Cup. On Monday, the BBC was refused the opportunity to ask Graves if an inquiry will indeed take place. If it does, what questions might he be asking? How bad were England? Graves's "mediocre" comments resulted from the fact West Indies began the series five places lower than England in the world rankings and had not won a Test match against a team other than New Zealand, Zimbabwe or Bangladesh since 2011. In addition, they were without a number Arron Afflalo Kids Jersey of players, including Chris Gayle, Darren Sammy and Kieron Pollard, because of their Indian Premier League commitments. However, under new coach Phil Simmons, they looked like a side ready to re-emerge as competitive on the world stage, with BBC cricket correspondent Jonathan Agnew saying: "West Indies are not, in any way, a mediocre side, they are a developing side." England had the better of much of the series, falling three wickets short of winning the first Test, conjuring victory in the second, before giving it away with a poor performance in the third. Still, even when England were on top, questions were being asked. Why persevere with the now-retired Jonathan Trott at the top of the order? Why was leg-spinner Adil Rashid overlooked? Where is the fast-bowling support for record wicket-taker James Anderson? Without the answers, England were exposed in the third-Test defeat in Barbados. Why was Rashid not tried? So poor were Moeen Ali, a batsman who bowls off-spin, and Joe Root, who is even more of a part-timer, on the second day of the final Test that it led former England batsman Geoffrey Boycott to label their collective effort as "the worst spin bowling I have ever seen from an England team, maybe any international team". Their struggles highlighted the treatment Adrian Peterson Authentic Jersey of Yorkshire's Rashid, who was part of the touring party and played in both warm-up games but was not handed a Test debut, despite all three matches being played on slow, turning pitches. The faith shown by Cook and coach Peter Moores towards Moeen comes from his performances last summer, when he took 19 wickets in the home series win against India. Then, there was a lack of expectation of the Worcestershire all-rounder, who missed the first Test against West Indies with a side strain and took only six wickets in the next two, despite the helpful conditions. Was Moeen simply below his best, or are England asking him to do a job that is beyond him? Why was Rashid not tried in conditions that appeared ideal? "People should remember that Moeen has won Test matches for England," said former England off-spinner Graeme Swann. "The expectation on his shoulders because of that is massive and he needs time to develop because he is not an out-and-out spinner. "Rashid should have had at least two Test matches http://www.officialpredatorsstore.com/authentic-9-filip-forsberg-jersey.html in this series, but England's safety-first policy will always see them lean towards fast bowlers. That attitude has to change if we are to see more spinners come through."
