Cricket Part III


#8812

A genuine tremor went through the NSW batting line up on Friday afternoon, the game was as good as done in one spell. The most imposing bowling spell they’d seen in 15 years of 1st class cricket… And barely a bouncer bowled.

“why is the bloke playing Shield cricket”

Dear lord let him stay fit for the next 6 months.


#8813

World Cup team?

Warner
Finch
Khawaja
Smith
Maxwell
Stoinis
Handscomb (wk)
Cummins
Starc
Richardson
Zampa


#8814

Not bad, think Carey will probably get the keepers spot though.


#8815

Hazlewood will get Richardson’s spot provided he has recovered


#8816

Or a second spinner. But frankly I don’t really want Hazle in the World Cup side.


#8817

Our most economic bowler and one who the conditions will suit the most?
If he is fit he is nearly the first picked bowler IMO


#8818

Stoinis will cost us the world cup this year. Been very poor with bat and ball, dont even think Watson was this poor.


#8819

Yeah I don’t think it’s gonna do anywhere near as seam friendly as people think, especially late in the tournament.


#8820

Warner
Khawaja
Finch ©
Smith
Maxwell
Stoinis
Carey +
Starc
Cummins
Richardson,J
Zampa

Turner
Handscomb
Hazlewood
Lyon

I’d prefer Turner in the team, for who I don’t know (probably Stoinis),

And I’d like Handscomb in there too but I don’t think he’ll be a starter with Smith back and they won’t drop Carey either.

Lyon
Marsh
Coulter-Nile
Behrendorff
Richardson,K

Will all be there or thereabouts come selection time.


#8821

I wouldn’t have Lyon in the limited over games.


#8822

Two frontline spinners is a formula that’s been working for the better international teams for a while. We have been too slow to catch on. Who would you have in his place?


#8823

Someone who spins it away. Are there many off-spinners in any ODI teams?


#8824

I wish we could forget Warner. He’s a fine natural batsman, but he’s challenged in the brainbox, and he’s a divisive influence. Let him play IPL, but keep him away from the Australian team. We don’t need him.


#8825

Beep beep beep bee
I’m picking up your signal loud and clear.


#8826

So Dean Jones was hard done by but we don’t need Warner for the same reason?


#8827

Jones was stupider than Warner, but they’re both a major distraction. I’m with perce on this one. I don’t particularly want him back.


#8828

He can turn it away from the lefties. :wink: Didn’t take any bags in the UAE but was our most miserly bowler after PC. I’d stick with him for the WC. Too late to blood a new bowler now anyway.


#8829

Yeah, What’s winning or losing a WC matter.


#8830

That’d be right.

#8831

Unbelievable ending in the IPL. Kolkata needed 30 to win off 12 balls against Bangalore. Got home with 5 BALLS TO SPARE.
