Catches win matches
By avalon on Jan 24, 2008
From longer ago than I can remember, the phrase "catches win matches" became associated with cricket and for a good while, Australia (as a team) was always converting a high percentage of the catches into wickets. In the first innings of the test at Adelaide this year against India, 6 catche were put down.
While they might be in the doldrums at present after being given a hiding in Perth, if they can't get their act together and hold onto the ball when it comes their way, then they're not going to win matches either. Obviously a few lads need to spend more time remembering how to catch the ball!
