    Cricket Australia contracts 05-06

    List of contracted players for 2005-06


    Nathan Bracken, Michael Clarke, Daniel Cullen, Adam Gilchrist, Jason Gillespie, Matthew Hayden, Brad Haddin, Brad Hodge, Brad Hogg, James Hopes, Michael Hussey, Michael Kasprowicz, Simon Katich, Justin Langer, Brett Lee, Michael Lewis, Stuart MacGill, Damien Martyn, Glenn McGrath, Ricky Ponting, Andrew Symonds, Shaun Tait, Shane Warne, Shane Watson, Cameron White.

    http://content.cricinfo.com/ci/conte...ry/207049.html

    Bracken has won back his contract, Hopes, Cullen, Haddin, Lewis, and White (?) get their first Cricket Australia contracts, while people like Love, Lehmann, Maher (Kyle's reaction in 5..4..3), Elliott, and Williams have lost theirs.

    The way Love was going he was lucky to still be in the Queensland team.

    no real surprises there, Maher hasn't played for Australia for a long time and they haven't even gone close to picking him for mine.

    It's funny with Tait, a lot of the English on here (Neil, Richard, Marc just to name a few) don't really to rate him that highly (that is the impression I get at least) basing on his performance at Durham, yet the people who have seen him bowl a lot do rate him highly.

    While I'm not the biggest fan of Lee, he really needs to go out and bowl, and bowl, and bowl in FC cricket.

    I don't think it's fair to expect too much of him just yet. He's certainly the most promising young spinner in Australia, but he's not a superstar or anything yet.

    31 but he'll play as long as his body will allow. He'd still play at 60 if he could. That's just him. Very passionate. Great bloke.

    I was surprised that Damien Wright didn't get a contract, be in pretty good form this season and has played for the A Team more then Lewis. You would think that he would be closer to the national team, when you add his batting and fielding then Lewis, but i guess it was a line ball decision and i think that Lewis is slightly younger then Wright.

    No real surprises with that contract list, although I think it is a bit rich for Cullen to be getting paid that much for just one good season. I didn't expect Love to keep his contract, but Maher's form was decent enough to keep his contract.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!
