Jade Dernbach suffered another torrid day at the hands of Australia's batsmen. After going for 50 from his four overs in Hobart, the Surrey bowler was struck for 42 from just three overs today and engaged in a futile war of words with White as his bowling was flayed to all parts.
Dernbach has played precious little cricket in the lead-up to this series, in fact, he hadn't bowled competitively since September 11th before this series, and that does make you wonder a, why he's been picked in the first place, and b, why he's played no cricket in between. There are plenty of club sides in Australia who Dernbach could have linked up with, it is both a fault of him and the management that he hasn't been handled more effectively.
It must be said however that although he has struggled badly here, and indeed in ODI cricket for England, his recent international T20 form hasn't been that bad; albeit spread over a year, and there is thus reason, although tenuous reason considering his lack of cricket, for his selection.
If he is still in England's World T20 plans he should play in the final match. If not, then focus should move elsewhere, although the relative lack of alternative options in the pace department is a problem.
