Jack averages 1-46 in List A cricket, at 1.3 wkts per game. Apparently he is "insufficiently proven."

Here are the figures for everyone else, that we have been picking and all of whom, must be (to judge from JK's words) considered ""proven""

Roelof 1.5 wkts per game for 48 runs*

Craig 1.4 wkts per game for 53 runs

Lewis 1.5 wkts per game for 60 runs

Josh 1.2 wkts per game for 54 runs*

Tim 1.2 wkts per game for 56 runs

Jamie 1.2 wkts per game for 63 runs

Roelof and Josh's figures will include some games at high international level, such as the World Cup, but also some lower standard (than county) Associate level international games, I think the combo of some higher level and some lower level probably roughly balance themselves out.

So, what do we have?

3 of the 6 have been *marginally* more penetrative than Jack.

6 of 6 have been more expensive than Jack, some signficantly so.


The idea that Jack is really unproven is more management pet theory than actual reality.

Yes, Jack has played fewer games but through no fault of his own - a few missed through injury (the fractured skull thing, for example) and plenty by simply being ignored for no apparent reason.
