    ***Official*** Australian Domestic Season 2005/06 thread

    Well, with the first game exactly 2 months away i thought i'd get in early and make this thread so we can discuss the upcoming season.

    I think South Australia will be the big movers this year
    WA should be around the mark again
    Victoria will probably be favourable candidates for last spot
    Queensland look strong again
    New South Wales look like they'll be around mid-table
    Tasmania will probably be around mid-to-low-table.

    Ok, Like last year we'll guess the leading performers

    Pura Cup:

    Leading Run-Scorer: Michael Bevan - think he can back up last years very strong season

    Leading Wicket-Taker: Andrew Bichel - should be very consistent

    ING Cup:

    Leading Run-Scorer: Greg Blewett - should have a good season because won't be so heavily relied upon like last season with players like Lehmann and Elliott probably playing full-time

    Leading Wicket-Taker: Mick Lewis - good OD bowler
    penis

    Dream XI: M Hyder, J Linker, M Clock, S Wetsin, A Simms, A Golcrhist, B Hugg, S Worde, B Leap, J Giuseppe, G MacGrith

    I really hope for the sake of Australian cricket that none of your player predictions to come off. We need someone else besides Bichel to be rolling sides for Queensland, hopefully Bevan and, even moreso with the talent at SA's disposal, Blewett get outscored by some younger pups in their sides respectively.

    Hope to see Cam White take 35+ wickets, David Hussey have a very good year, and Callum Ferguson kick on. I also think/hope Matthew Inness has a cracker of a year over in WA, he's the perfect foil to Brad Williams - who I hope doesn't have a good year, because the worst thing that could happen is him to get back into contention for Aus honours

    Others I'm expecting big things of are Jaques (a really big year and he'll be in the Aus side very very soon), Doherty (has to deliver eventually), the SA bowling attack (Cullen needs to prove he's not a one season wonder, while Rofe and Cleary need to show that they can provide suitable support), and one of North, Rogers or Marsh to take the season by the scruff of the neck.

    I also hope Phillipson from Queensland has a huge year, he is a very classy batsman with a lot of potential. I also hope Watson is dropped from the Aussie one day side, so he can get a full season with Queensland.

    Don't think Cullen will do much, but I hope I am proved wrong. Will be interesting to see how Hauritz goes after his winter stint under the guidance of Murali.

    If Love is injury free he will challenge for most runs of the season.

    South Australia should do really well this season IMO, might lose Tait for the one dayers, but should have Gillespie for most of the season.

    I'd think that New South Wales would be a very strong chance to retain the Pura Cup given the quality of their bowling attack and the form of guys like Jaques, Thornley and Haddin, should it continue.

    Mainly though, I'm hoping to see some of the potential talent in Australia really perform.

    NSW will do well because they will have Macgill and Nicholson for the whole year - the consistant bowling attack will help alot i reakon.

    i also reakon that Haddin will have another good year

    I reckon NSW should be stellar. The best bowling line-up and some great youngsters like Packman and Cowan. Jaques should rip it up.

    I really hope Cullen bowls well. We need a young spinner!

    NSW mid-table Hoggy ? With Haddin, Jacques, Thornley, Macgill, Nicholson, Clark, and Bracken they should be able to win it.

    You could have had a point, if you left out the names of Thornley, Clark and Bracken.

    You're so stubborn about this crap, really. Bracken averaged 18 last year, and Thornley in the high 50s. You don't think they contributed to New South Wales winning the Pura Cup?

    I hope that a couple of NSW young batsmen really come through this season. I think guys like Creed, Simmons, Packman and Cowan have some great potential and could give us the edge in winning the Pura Cup and the ING Cup. Should also be interesting to see how Thorpe goes this season, now his retired from playing for England, he should be able to play the full season for us if he stay fit. I think Phelps and Mail maybe dropped to make way for Thorpe and a couple of the youngsters.
