“Rascals win you comps”
In the first episode of The Fire: Before The Ashes, Brad Haddin declares the rascals in the Australian cricket team that you should buy a beer if you ever get the chance.
Everyone wants to have a beer with the GOAT, Nathan Lyon, but I think the Australian public needs to get to know over a beer these three quicks; Starc, Hazlewood and Cummins. They’re really really good people but also they’ve got that little naughty boy glint in their eye when they’ve had a few drinks and I’ve always said rascals win you comps, you need rascals in your team to win big moments and to push the envelope every now and then. And I know these three are pretty straight and narrow in front of the media but you get a beer into those three or behind the changeroom, they’ve got a lot of energy about them. But do not get stuck at the bar with Josh Hazlewood. He’s got hollow legs.
