It’s great to see Jake Weatherald scoring a hundred for South Australia last night at the WACA in Perth.
People are jumping on social media saying that Weatherald deserves a spot in the Baggy Green.
Weatherald’s a such a fantastic young player at 23 who’s a left-hand opening batsman.
He always whacks shots where it’s a bad ball and blocks if only’s a good ball.
Not just straight bat shots he came up.
But Pull and Hook shots over the ground, unbelievable!
Plus he stayed tall for the entire time with a beautiful eye and technique.
It would’ve been useful if Australia chose Weatherald to open v Pakistan in the UAE.
The flat tracks where Weatherald performed well at the WACA would make the Pakistani bowlers feel isolated.
But they feel at this time that Matt Renshaw will get his 2nd chance in the Baggy Green.
It depends going into the start of the new Sheffield Shield Season.
However, if Weatherald’s able to maintain his consistent form like he did last night, then he will play test cricket soon enough.
It will be the start of the Australian Home Test Summer.
Yes, Australia v India 1st Test at Adelaide Oval.
Imagine Weatherald demolishing the bowlers all day through his classic Justin Langer-esque shots & temperament.
Cricket Australia will thank SACA for developing the best youngsters that they’ve done for many years.
They’ve done the right thing by calling up Travis Head after his impressive performances for Australia A.
Jake Weatherald should be the next to play Test Cricket after Head.
The back end of his impressive start of the 2018 One-Day Cup can launch into an outstanding season for Weatherald.
