Am sure we all share your frustrations re Coles, and it does seem he bowled a couple of poor overs amongst the other 2 very good ones. Dont forget he took a hat trick the other day and is generally one of our better bowlers/players.
I would say, whilst he is by no means perfect, the way to iron out these problems is to keep playing and practicing, we cant just drop everyone when they have a bad game. I would be more inclined to ask the coaches what they are doing, but then again perhaps they would say they give him advice and he just ignores it, I dunno!
You could be right generally in that we seem to stick to the tried and trusted (but failures) and are slow to bring fresh blood into the team. Dickson has been unlucky not to play. Stevens and Blake have not done much, but are potentially explosive and match-winning players. But the fringe bowlers like Ball and Haggett have never really done much when given the chance.
I dont know if you have been following Martin Shaw's match commentaries on facebook. Whilst they are excellent, there are always a couple of moaners who want players dropped and kicked out the minute they bowl a bad over or lose their wicket. It's pathetic that they cant support their team for what it is.
I know you're a long time supporter, but saying something nice about the team now and again wouldn't do any harm!
