“He is this sort of large weapon. If England is going to do well inside the World Cup, he needs to have a good match. He becomes disappointing within the Tests. However, he has been outstanding in the one-dayers. He is this type of dangerous participant and suit-winner for England within the white-ball layout.” Gough’s evaluation is in keeping with the larger belief of wrist spinners and the cost they carry to aspects within the modern-day-day sport.
