Cricket Part II


#9916

Nah. Marsh has some ability. Moises is a ■■■■■■■ turnip.


#9917

Henriques and m marsh have pretty similar fc averages


#9918

Says a fair bit about them


#9919

sangha and edwards both in the runs and come from nsw. do like the look of edwards though. but in a few years away from the highest level so there are young ones in the future wings. qld and nsw have some good young talent. s.a have a good young un in ferguson


#9920

The ferguson who’s 33? Have you been smoking crack with sameolds?


#9921

tongue in cheek


#9922

This thread makes me question everything.

I agree on Edwards. One to watch.


#9923

its like a cat chasing its tail. there are some talented young ones out there but i fear i won’t see them thrive


#9924

Can see it happening.
We pick him before he’s ready, he makes a few rookie mistakes, we crucify him for it and he never plays Tests again.


#9925

its seems to be the way unfortunately.it would seem that they nurture.spoil them for 6 years and are in a rush to get their dividends.


#9926

England do it as well. We throw some guys in the deep end before they are truly ready- they struggle and then they are never seen from again. Or a guy like Compton who was a real grafter- had been around the county scene for ages, made tons of runs. Made a really good score of about 80 (200ish balls) against a really strong South Africa side. From memory we either won or drew.

After the game Bayliss criticized him for going to slow, next game he goes out cheaply trying to score too quickly(which is not his game at all). Gets dropped and i think never played for England again.


#9927

Compton would get a game for the Aussie team based purely on lineage


#9928

And the soccer team.

I know Denis played for Arsenal…did he play for England too?


#9929

Fergussons an ideal step up to replace Paine as skipper, or at least fill the breach until someone like Cummins comes through. Henriques as VC in the meantime.
May as well get that experience into him while he’s young.


#9930

Ferguson is one of the most inconsistent batsmen you’ll ever see. He’ll have a good spell, then hardly make a run for 4 matches.

I don’t think he’s in our top 15 batsmen.


#9931

Further more, if we’re going to revamp CA, get some forward thinkers in.

Get Greg Matthews in - we need those kind of thinkers.

Colin millers not being utilised either.

Shake things up.


#9932

Now you’re just trying to bait HAP


#9933

To be fair though, saying anything about cricket bait’s HAP at the moment.


#9934

Only stupid things though. Like Henriques as VC (or even being picked to play for Australia)


#9935

Vice are going to spew the game that got away. Had SA 8 down with a 50 run lead, then couldn’t knock over the 9th wicket for a long time. Pushed it into day 4 where the heavens have opened.
