Tom is our captain.
He has had 2 matches. 4 innings. One dismissal was a nick down legside.
Of course he needs runs soon but its crazy to be dropping our captain after just 2 poor matches.
If he was the right choice in December surely he deserves more than 2 matches.

Everyone entitled to their opinion, the above is mine. I have no intetest in debating it.
If he scores runs Friday i'll be well pleased for him.
To even be questioning him after 2 games makes no sense to me.
People seem increasingly short term these days.
We have 4 champo games in a row now, if after those things havent improved yes maybe a call to revisit things but 2 games for me isnt enough to write him off.

And to pre-empt, pre season nor 2nd team matter a jot, nice if you get runs but champo runs the only currency that matters.
Finally i think his captaincy has been unquestionable so far, a score with the bat Friday and all sorted!
