Cricket Part II


#1884

Hasn’t Bancroft put his name up as opener, number 6 and also as a replacement keeper? He’s the answer to all our holes apparently


#1885

I agree with Paz, currently she is the best in world cricket.

She may not be by the end of summer though.


#1886

Doesn’t surprise me that you agree with pazza.

She had a very good game. She had some pretty mediocre ODIs.

I’d rate the Indian woman, is it Harmonpeet Kaur, as a better bat. And maybe a few male cricketers.

She’s certainly the best to play international ricket and international soccer in the last 20 years.


#1887

Best in her field but I’m not getting into any arguments about the standard or Women’s cricket


#1888

Whut?!?!?

Let her face the Aus men’s test attack and see how many runs she gets. Ditto bowling to the men’s test batting line up.

Agree she is the best women’s cricketer in the World. But that’s where it ends.


#1889

Utterly taking the p*ss for anyone that thinks legitimatley in their right mind that she is the best batter in the world for mens. Utterly insane and if it needs explaining you’re a deadset moron.


#1890

Sarah Taylor who was the ICC Women’s player of the year in 2015 came over and played for my local district club in SA. Played mainly B grade and hardly made a run and was gifted a game in the A grade and kept ok but was horrid with the bat. As good as Perry is she wouldn’t make a run in any A grade district comp let alone at Shield level


#1891

Perry is the best female cricketer in the world. But as for best cricketer (both sexes) in the world…pls


#1892

Bancroft with a 100, have to say he’s definitely in - not sure what spot


#1893

You lot are hilarious, you take everything so seriously.


#1894

Some serious question marks about Renshaw’s form at the moment. Failed again today.
I think they will still give him a go in the first test, but if he fails there, Bancroft will come in IMO.


#1895

Waugh has all but come out and said he is playing the first test. They are just disappointed he didn’t make runs to take the pressure off.


#1896

Bancroft averaging 99 in the Shield this season and a better keeper than Wade, by weight of numbers he has to come under consideration. Even as a pure batter I’d rather have him at 5 or 6 than guys like Maxwell or Henriques


#1897

I’d go:

Renshaw
Warner
Khawaja
Smith
Handscomb
Bancroft (keeper)
Maxwell
Starc
Cummins
Hazlewood
Lyon


#1898

Whoever they pick as ‘keeper, I just hope they stick with them for the entire series.


#1899

That’s pretty much how it will go. Aside from Bancroft, the only other ‘iffy’ one is Maxwell, I’m not sure he’s done enough to be picked. The thing that he’s got going for him and s that there isn’t anyone else who is banging on the door.


#1900

It’s a small sample though, only 2.5 Shield games and it wiuld be considered a gamble if they go that way. Might be a gamble worth taking unless Nevill tons-up in Brisbane.


#1901

I would have Cartwright over Maxwell (which bumps Bancroft down to 7) at this point, but otherwise yep.
There’s probably really only 2 spots up for grabs, 6 and WK.


#1902

Bancroft 161 no at stumps for WA


#1903

Tasmania 172, Bailey with 106 and silk with 36. Think in the last game they had two players who scored all but 30 of their runs as well. Their batting line up is atrocious
