    New South Wales v Queensland at Sydney, Mar 4-7, 2004 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo
    This match was not an isolated game. How often do NSW and to a lesser extent Vic have to be clobbered around before the selectors see the writing on the wall and realise that there are other states in Australia besides those two aforementioned.
    Current Favourite XI 1. Gayle 2. Warner 3.Sangakarra 4. Clarke* 5. Chanderpaul 6.DeVilliers 7. De Kock+ 8. Vettori 9. Johnson 10. Herath 11. Steyn

    Yeah, what? Not sure what relevance a game from almost 10 years ago with all of about five players still around today has anything to do with anything.

    Especially since his point seems to be that NSW got hammered, despite the fact that they only lost by 37 runs in a completely contrived match. NSW declared their first innings 222 runs behind at 4 down ffs.

    He could've picked so, so many more apt games to support his point. So random.

    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Finch probably ought to consider performing at FC level before he talks about getting a test spot

    Are you really prepared to bet that Finch is more deluded than Invers and Boof?

    Bailey said they were given assurances that their runs in India would keep them in contention for test selection so who knows.

    Good, selecting test players off ODI form and performance has always been a good idea

    Honestly wouldn't mind seeing Cam White at 6 and as vice-vice-captain if Forkers gets Haddin's other eye.

    Bear in mind his FC average is over the big 4-0. Him and the Champ bowling in tandem would be the best thing since wholesale carpet.
