Silly Point told you that Haseeb Hameed would debut in Rajkot…

… and then did the same when Keaton Jennings was summoned for Mumbai…

… well not wishing to put the mockers on things for Liam Dawson but the Hampshire spinner could become England Test cap number 676 in the fifth and final Test in Chennai that commences tomorrow. Aside from Silly Point jinxing things for the slow-left-armer, the aftermath of cyclone Vardah, namely a damp pitch might also cost ‘Daws’ his becoming a Test cricketer.

If Dawson does debut tomorrow, he’d probably be quite content if he claimed first innings figures of 4-134, ala the last Dawson to debut for England, former Yorkshire offie Richard ‘Dick’ Dawson (In 2001) but would prefer to finish his Test career with a not so Dawsonesque (Richard) bowling average of 61.54 which in itself is reminiscent of another former Yorkshire offie and is therefore almost a Battyesque 60.93!
