    You at 3 and Ben P at 4 sounds good too.

    And also possibly making Kalani focus on keeping and Ben B focus on his bowling.

    Another fantastic idea.

    But I definitely want Ben keeping for the majority of the innings. Ben B is definitely going to be our keeper, he keeps in our juniors and had his first go at keeping in seniors last week. Perhaps a change at drinks or something will be good, because Ben is and wants to keep.

    Do you have any captaincy/coaching experience?

    Na just leadership roles here and there, came from a non-cricket playing school. Just a good eye for a team and a bit of junior sevens coaching.

    A good foundation, lipstick, eye-liner and a bit of blusher does the trick for me, but the best make-up a woman can apply is to buy me half a dozen beers. That does the trick.

    Oh, sorry. I thought it was a question about the womens world cup

    Actually I would prefer opening I mean i love opening,

    If you get to a good start move Kyle up the order
    I reckon thats a better side because I"m pressuming Ben Beehag's quick Between the wickets same as Tom me on the other hand im not as quick so i probably would prefer batting at 3 but I would open if jake wanted me to.

    No offence, but if you are batting top order, the team must be absolutely deplorable. I thought you were a bowler and a bowler only pretty much?

    Another two things. When you have to pick kids who don't play cricket, don't just take the ones that want to play, try and convince some of the kids who have natural ability to have a game, the team will be better for it. We got a black fella to pay for school one time, first ever game and scored 91.

    Secondly, we're going into winter, surely you won't be playing until October or so.

    Nah, I am pure to bowling allrounder. I am actually a pretty decentish batsmen. I am definitely top 7, and TBH our top 7 this year is 1000000 times better than last year.

    I reckon I will pick a bloke who plays down at the nets, he is dire, but can improve over the off season.

    Yeah I know.

    You should stay 4 because of how you got out last year.

    I agree. Lets base the selections on a poor shot played last year.
