Cricket Part II


#1804

9/47
10th wicket partnership of 12, highest of the innings!


#1805

Carey made bugger all too.
Nevill 20 in his only dig.

I’ve never seen the attraction with Paine apart from nickyd.

He’s made 2 first-class tons I think…in about 10 years. He’s not that good a keeper.

Tassie imported Jake Doran as a keeper from NSW last year. That didn’t go well. He’s now just opening the batting.

And Wade batting 5 has pushed two legitimate prospects in McDermott and Webster to 6 and 7.

Whiteman didn’t play, not sure why not, but Inglisdid nothing with the bat…nor did Pierson.


#1806

Tassue all-out for their lowest-ever total - 63. So that means WA, QLD and NSW start the Shield season with outright wins.


#1807

The main Thing that came out of the Sheffield Shield is Starc is a bona fide gun, and Aussies have trouble playing him.


#1808

He’s deadly against right-handed tailenders when he can comes around the wicket - he’s just too quick for ‘em.


#1809

Shield games start with 3/45, 3/48 & 2/35.
Aussie batting stocks are dire.


#1810

Or their bowling stocks are healthy


#1811

Cook out second ball in ashes warm up


#1812

Head and Lehmann flaying the Vics now


#1813

Both out now 5-193 with Lehmann 103 and Head 67. Both to Boland.

NSW 5-165 with Smith out for 76. Hughes on 25, Nevill 5. Henriques quack.

Tassie 6-112 with Wade out for 9. Pushing McDermott and Webster to 6 and 7, where Wade should be batting.


#1814

I haven’t seen much, but some of starc’s stuff was unplayable. Just good bowling conditions, still a bit of juice in the wickets, generally the conditions dry out and become more bat friendly as summer progresses.


#1815

S Marsh 2 and Cartwright 0 both out to Hazelwood.

Renshaw out for 1

Maxwell currently on 23


#1816

Jake Doran just got a pair against Queensland.
Wasn’t he touted as some sort of Ricky Pontingesque batting prodigy as a junior.


#1817

Went from NSW to Tassie as a keeper/batsman…and they gave him a go ahead of Paine. Then brought Paine back.
Now opening with Wade back there.
Wade is listed as coming in at 7 this innings. That’s where he should be batting when there are specialist batsmen behind him.


#1818

M Marsh just bowled for a duck by Hazelwood (3/3).


#1819

How are you watching this? What channel is it on?


#1820

So both Marsh brothers have secured their spots in the ashes lineup.


#1821

On the cricket Australia website, I think you have to sign up.


#1822

It’s free, but you can’t get the internationals for free.

You can get the England games when they’re playing the states - men and women.

Maxwell out for 60.


#1823

Vics batting well, I popped in for a couple of hours this arvo whilst the wife went shopping.
