Cricket Part III


#8712

click back into thread and Vics have gone bang


#8713

Bat for time now


#8714

Amazing how bad the techniques have been to bowling aimed at the stumps.


#8715

Siddle 5 fa


#8716

All out 121


#8717

Siddle wants to go to England


#8718

Quality bowling and the batting just isn’t up to it which is unusual for NSW as normally they produce decent allrounders with the stick. These blokes are just genuine bowlers only


#8719

Patto has to be in the squad. Siddle not sure what the thoughts are. Copeland has made a late run at it, there might be room for one bowler who is not express but can move the ball in English conditions. Starc, Hazlewood, Cummins are the certainties. Patto, Sidds, Copeland, J.Richardson in the mix for the reserve pacemen spots. I dare say there will be some over there playing County so we may not necessarily have to have them in the squad to be able to call them up…


#8720

Starc, Cummins, Hazle, Patto, Richardson, Siddle/Bird I reckon will be the 6 bowlers they’ll take, if they take 6.


#8721

Richo has been bowling well so I see no reason why Patto would replace him at this stage (unless stays injured). He should probably be looked at for the squad though.


#8722

I can think of about 70 reasons.


#8723

Panel were just discussing who replaces whom for the WC squad. Heals thinks Warner for Khawaja, Smith for Handscomb.


#8724

Healy is a v poor judge


#8725

He also is very well connected to the power brokers of CA


#8726

interesting as Khawaja has done quite well in the recent ODIs. But if the pen is poised against his name then a bad finish to this series may be enough to cross him out


#8727

He’ll be in the squad I’d imagine. But perhaps not in the side.


#8728

The only query the selectors should have around Pattinson for the Ashes is whether he wants a window seat, or an aisle seat.

It’s so good to see him fit and firing again!


#8729

Which end James?

With the wind thanks…


#8730

He’s a strong strapping lad.


#8731

Lucky they “didn’t have the courage” to leave out Siddle.
