Cricket Part II


From WA - what is there to get?


400 is the new 300


Tye is one of the best T20 bowlers in the world, with ODI becoming increasingly ‘T20-fied’ bowlers with his skillset are invaluable, there aren’t many in Australia with them.


Pretty much is. I think the end game will be that the 50 over games are just WC only with a few games thrown in each tour. Reckon domestically it will be gone in a few years time


7/Foxtel/CA putting it behind a paywall signifies this and will help expedite it


They weren’t picking his slow balls which made him hard to play. I haven’t watched any of this series, but by the looks of his figures, the English batsmen are picking him. If this is the case, he’s done, even if he was born in WA.


S Marsh
J Richardson
Ashton Agar

6 of the 11 that played from WA. Good to see a grand Australian cricketing tradition continue: who you know, not what you know.


M Marsh would be there too if he wasn’t injured.

WA is the new NSW huh?


T20 and ODI are still very different, T20 you can use variations to greater effect because the bats are coming at you harder. Sometimes your only bowling 1 over spells and batsmen have to hit from the get go.

ODIs still has room for a bowler vs batsman contest, you get more overs to work on a player, your spells are longer and the batter has time to get himself in if he needs it.

He needs more tricks to be a good odi bowler he can’t get on by variations alone


True, haven’t seen the game don’t know if they were picking him consistantly or not; but he was one of the best bowlers in the IPL, and having variety in the bowling lineup is important. He does need to find a way to be more damaging with his stock ball though.


Agreed, Tye will always be better at the death in ODI games when they are in T20 mode, he’d also be more effective if those batsman were under more pressure.

Also Nottingham is a batsman’s paradise isn’t it? The 444 against Pakistan was also there wasn’t it? Any reason why we chose to bowl?


Could be played with a tennis ball and still unacceptable to give up that many runs


If we used duct tape on the tennis ball we still wouldn’t be able to swing it


The best way to play cricket.


England should have enforced the follow-on!!!


Does he offer that?
Tye bowls right arm fast medium

In this squad we have:
Stanlake right arm fast medium (albeit from from 4.5m high)
J Richardson right arm fast medium
K Richardson right arm fast medium
Stoinis right arm slow medium
Agar left arm orthodox
Maxwell right arm orthodox / not allowed to bowl ever under any circumstances
Finch dunno what you call that


Specialist T20/LO bowler, provides variation in pace, yorkers.

I’d say Stanlake and both Richardsons are fighting for the 1 spot when the WC comes along.

First four quicks:

Agar/Zampa & whoever else pops up

Backup quicks:

Even WA bowlers like Paris, Behrendorff and Coulter-Nile will be in consideration being West Australian and all


Stanlake is a bit above fast medium. He’s as fast, if not faster on a regular basis, than any other bowler we have. Including Starc and Cummins. 150+ is no worries for him. A great talent is Billy.


Coulter-Nile is quality and would be in my top 4.


At one stage were 200 runs below the DLS par score! :laughing:
