“We’ve given John a run, and we’re hoping he will continue. He looks the part to me. One or two against Bangladesh were a little bit unfortunate… but apart from that, he has given us some good starts, something we weren’t getting years ago.”
Campbell has played 20 Test matches where he has not scored a single century and He has scored 03 fifties with 888 runs.
“We were either 15 for three or five for three, and so far, we’re getting some starts, and I think that John is actually trying to get a score. He’s doing well. He’s working on his game and I think he’s performing fairly well.”
