    Players to watch for next season!

    Which non state cricket/fringe player could you see making the grade in the next 2 years.
    From NSW moises henriques,jarrad burke,murray creed ,steve o'keefe,michael bright,and aaron bird.
    Qld nick kruger,ryan leroux,SA ken skewes,cullen baily,trent kelly,VIC nick jewell,michael klinger,liam buchanan,simon dart,tim welsford,robert cassell,TAs tim paine bill hilfenhaus,ACT shaun heaney.
    Anyone know of anyone else in grade who probably deserves a berth in their state side next year.
    Be interested to see how moises henriques goes there are a lot of tabs on him to play for australia one day.
    Anyone know of any other talent round the country.

    no.
    michael klinger
    no
    liam buchanan
    no (except for twenty20)
    simon dart
    yes...oh wait, he's *supposed to be* the stinkiest person in victorian cricket and so they won't pick him.

    no
    tim welsford,robert cassell
    welsford is just another mcdonald/harvey type. cassell's a good bowler, but breaks more times than Bells Beach.

    I hope he gets a game for NSW, especially if they don't do well in the ING cup again this year.

    Also read in the paper today that Inness is looking at QLD or WA (surely have to go to WA, if he doesn't want to move to QLD to play Grade cricket all year), and that Hodge has left for England saying "I've left as a Victorian, and I'll return a Victorian.

    Moises has to perform in grade cricket before he gets a game for NSW, you don't get picked on potential alone.

    On Inness he would be stupid if he went to Oueensland, he has to remember Ben Edmondson and Magoffin went to WA cus they couldn't get a game in OLD, what is the chances of Inness getting a game.

    On Hogde i thought it was unlikely he would go to NSW, but i did read somewhere that he thinks moving to NSW may increase his chances of playing for Australia.

    Good post mate. Of that lot, I think Bird is the one to watch.

    I heard Aaron Bird is distantly related to Ian Meckiff? I've heard they have some similar...characteristics.

    On the NSW players i would add Mark Cameron to that 55 wkts @ 15.44 (second only to Doug Bollinger for most wickets in grade cricket).

    Jarrad Burke is probably the closest to the state side out of all these guys with a very impressive season last year with bat and bowl:
    780 runs @ 41.05, 2 - 100s and 5 - 50s
    37 wkts @ 22.38, 2 - 5wh

    Henriques has another decent season with the bowl, but didn't impress too much with the bat:
    285 runs @ 25.91, 2 - 50s
    24 wkts @ 25.83

    Both O'Keefe also had a decent season with bat and bowl
    679 runs @ 33.95, 24 wkts @ 29.58

    Bright had a really good seaon with the bat, but he is rated as an all rounder, but his leg break have never really developed:
    Bright: 754 runs @ 53.86, 4 wkts @ 74.25

    Murry Creed, i don't know much about him but he had a really good season with the bat, leading sun scoring in grade cricket this season:
    1102 runs @ 58

    Bird had a pretty good season, but was out bowled by Cameron:
    36 wkts @ 23.06

    All in all looks like a pretty good side for the future:
    E Cowan
    P Jaques
    J Burke
    D Thornley
    J Packman
    B Haddin
    M Bright/ M Hendriques
    J Krejza
    S O'Keefe
    A Bird
    M Cameron
    D Bollinger

    buchanan is as destructive batsman as you will find. seems to go up and down a bit though, he'll go through an awesome patch we're he'll be smashing them, then suddenly can't take a trick.

    Plenty of people have done that to me (well, when I say plenty I mean 2, which is plenty enough for my liking). That doesn't make them good.

    Defitely nsw have a few spare spots unless jon moss comes,especially at 7,who failed at 7 o'brien who had big wraps,kregja and lambert who regularly fails when he gets a chance.Steve o'keefe was meant to make his debut in the one day side against tasmania but it rained.With the nsw ing side likely to come bottom next season again would like to see them blood a lot of new youngsters in the side,mail and phelps as well as thornley all failed.Would like to see the selectors pick moises as the 3rd pacemen in the ing side,this way he can have a good dig as a batsmen if the top 6 fails and bradstreet has to rescue us again.
    With the vics likely to lose elliot and maybe moss and harvey,its a chance to blood some new talent,heard big things about liam buchanan.Would love to see nick kruger shift interstate he looks like he has a lot of promise.
    Tassie is in dire needs of talent they have a good ing side,but the batsmen really struggle in 4 day cricket,if i moved anywhere it would be tassie or s australia.
    With qld you gotta remember dawes and bichel are in the twilight of their career,altho doubt innes would like the wait,he'd be better off in wa.

    nah he hasn't. he played in the twenty20 game vs WA though, got burnt for a diamond and dropped a gobba. but did manage to kick a beachball back to the crowd.
