    Bevan to play a third season for Tasmania.

    From Cricinfo:
    Michael Bevan has ended months of uncertainty over his cricketing future by agreeing to play another season for Tasmania. David Johnston, the Tasmanian Cricket Association chief executive, said a verbal agreement had been reached and the paperwork was being completed.

    However, Bevan's role as Tasmania's assistant coach has been reduced to three days a week. "[It will] give him more time to concentrate on his cricket and more time to spend with his family - two very important things both for Tasmanian cricket and Michael Bevan," Tim Coyle, Tasmania's coach, told ABC Sport. "I'd say [it is] just a slightly reduced role, that's all it is, but he'll still work with our batters."

    Bevan appeared in 18 Tests and 232 ODIs for Australia and his time with the side finished when he was not offered a national contract at the end of the 2003-04 season. A long-term New South Wales player, he signed a two-year deal with Tasmania before the 2004-05 season and immediately made his mark with a domestic-record haul of 1464 Pura Cup runs.

    Good for Tasmania I guess.

    Must be nearly 35 or 36?

    Its good to have a bit of a mix of ages in the team - Bevan can sit the young'uns down and tell them about life before powerplays, supersubs, and graphite coloured technicolour bats - teach them kids some respect.

    So long as new talents are able to get a game as well, there's nothing wrong with him playing on so long as he's still good enough. Jokes aside, his experience must be good to have access to for the up-and-coming Taswegians...

    I agree some players stay on too long. Cox played two seasons too many in hindsight, Blewett has struggled for a while and Elliott chasing dollars in SA has been a blessing in disguise for the Vics.

    Bevan has been Bradman-esque since moving to Tasmania and delivered the state their first trophy in 30 years. Lehmann is still going great guns and Bichel is still one of the top performers in the competition. Providing they are playing well, which most of these players are, then their international experience is invaluable for youngsters coming through and raises the overall standard of the competition.

    Though I've never been a big fan of Lehmann, I do like his style of captaincy especially giving the new, young bowlers a go in tough situations where you'd normally rely on a seasoned pro.

    Lehmann is the best captain of the captains at national and state level. However, I do think Warne would be the best captain of all the players currently playing in Australia.

    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 *********!
