    Its crap but I was being more tongue in cheek in my criticism of Shield cricket rather than being serious. More the Aussie pundit way of pointing out any weakness in the County system. The County system is annoying where players are taken away from important FC games to play meaningless friendly A Team games.

    Gahhhhh go **** yourself Hilditch and your bunch of ****ty selectors. How can a bloke still be selected after averaging 36 from 20 Tests!????? HE'S ****ING USELESS!!!



    Had to be done. So, so, so frustrating. Just completely boggles the mind that a bloke can still be picked despite having a mediocre FC record and being even more mediocre in Tests, all while being on the wrong side of 30 and showing absolutely no signs of improvement.

England will win in Australia again this winter as they are a better side which they have shown this summer. 3-0 doesn't lie girls.

    Rather more pressing is that he averages 19 in his last 5 tests, despite scoring a century.
    "Your averages, captain, coaches and players can probably survive incompetence over a relatively short series, so if youíre going to be rubbish, make sure itís against Pakistan, Sri Lanka, New Zealand or someone."

    The mate that I have the bet on for Melbourne is trying to argue that 36 is good for a lower order batsmen. Bout to have a stroke

    He's better than some NZ mud batsmen: How,Sinclair,Horne & associates.
    But yeah he's got to go, MJ too.
    I expect The Bollinger to get picked for Adelaide

    He's well respected around the team and he's got the support of Ricky. It's just a bit of a dry spell but we're confident he'll return to form next match. He's been really putting in the extra effort so it's just a matter of time

    (He = North, Johnson)

    Dougeh has taken three for NSW, so hopefully he gets picked and maybe changing Hilfy for Harris and we SHOULD take 20 wickets.

    Which is the way that it should be imo. Not worth being a county style tournament unless we get more teams in there somehow.

    Yes, I know it sounds like a **** attitude to have, but the states are supposed to produce good cricketers for Australia, rather than just to win comps.
    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.

    And Copeland. But he only has an average of 17 so that's pretty ****

    "I mean this is a guy who once you take away all his scores below 100, averages 235 against England. That's pretty impressive. Wouldn't you agree? Who do you suggest we pick?"

    he didn't play for the Aus U19's so the selectors all agree that he's just getting lucky.
