    The folly of comparing payer performances in a grade comp compared to their performances in FC comp can best be illustrated by the fact that both Nasser Hussain and Monty Panesar have played at different times in Adelaide's grade comp, not exactly the best standard in the country, and struggled all season. If you've played FC cricket, it would be awfully difficult to get up mentally for even 1st grade cricket so to compare the two without considering the mental aspect seems somewhat erroneous.

    As for NSW grade cricket being the equal of county cricket, that's just silly. NSW are middle-table in both comps here; the state side isn't even the best in this country, let alone better than every other team in England and they were just spanked by Victoria by an innings, despite Vic only being one place on the table higher.

    I don't think anyone's arguing that there is more money in the grade competition, Corey.

    Broad couldn't get in the Leicestershire team a couple of years ago. To come from the Leicestershire Second XI to the England ODI Team in about 24 months is a great achievement, and testament to his achievements and talent.
    Or something.

    And what happened to giving Harmison and Anderson one last chance like your original post? Stay consistent, man.

    Thankyou Chris,

    At least someone has the common sense that is English to admit it.

    Not that I'm supporting Hinton's claims, but the kid is supposed to be pretty Godlike, if you'll pardon the pun. To be playing FC cricket at 17 one usually has to be pretty damn special. Bilal Shafayat notwithstanding.

    I've seen him bat in 20/20, and he looks to be one to watch for the future, but 2009 Ashes is a bit too premature.

    Which makes 2007, like Hinton stated in his post, quite mind boggling.

    I meant 2007 actually, but 2009 is still premature as well.

    The English club structure cannot support a Grade-like system. It has far too many teams.
