    Queensland in serious trouble after today's play....

    Just a few moments ago they were 3/11, still 127 runs away from making Tasmania bat again.

    A well constructed Innings from Travis Birt who is continually showing that he is line line for a National birth in the future. Once again though it was Bichel who provided the vital breakthrough's for QLD. Without Bich we would've been in a far worse position than we are now.

    At this stage it's up to Lachie Stevens, James Hopes, Hartley & Bichel to at first make tasmania bat again, and then hopefully build a lead big enough to defend. The Tassy line-up is not to be under-estimated this season

    Tassie have had a good batting line up for a while now, albeit prone to horrendous collapses, but they've never really had the bowling attack to take 20 wickets in a match. Griffith and Hilfenhaus are now a dangerous opening pair, Drew and Geeves are reasonable back up, and they are still yet to add Damien Wright who missed the whole of last season with injury to the attack. Maher and his 'sleeping giants' comment was a little overboard but I think they will go well this season and be in with a shot at making the Pura Cup final at least. They fell just short after decimating Queensland late last year in a season that was killed by injury.

    Ed cowan has promised much for a long time was in the same world youth cup side as aaron o'biren,michael clarke and shane watson.
    On moises he is talking it up by saying he hopes to be in the international side in 2/3 years,good on him.Apparently he has his own fan club as well not bad for a 19 year old.

    Lehman wins the toss and bowls, with Tait and Gillespie on a helpful pitch that will make it tough early for the NSW batsmen.

    Jaques, Simmons, Christian, +Haddin, Thornely, Cowan, O'Brien, Henriques, Nicholson, Hauritz, Bollinger.

    That is one ordinary looking side, especially the bowling attack. Henriques should get plenty of game time this year at least.

    Brad Haddin batting at 4 for NSW, is he that good? Or just a handy aggressive batsman? Here's hoping Gillespie,Tait, Cosgrove and Jaques do well, SA do have some elder statesman (pardon the pun) with Blewett, Elliot, Lehmann and Gillespie all over 30.

    hmm decent start 0/40 off 9.4, a bit slow though.

    What happend to McGill and Bird and why did they pick Haurtiz over Casson or Coyte?

    Yeah he played in the Top 4 his whole career in ODs and bats at 6 in FC, but could bat higher if NSW wanted. Been one of our best batsmen the last couple years, just behind Jaques.

    Handy aggressive batsman for mine.

    0/42 after 10 is a good start for NSW. Cosgrove dropped Jaques at slip.

    While its not Lee, McGrath, Bracken and Macgill (or even Clark) its not a bad attack, Bollinger is a solid state bowler and Hauritz is certainly a good OD bowler. Nicholson, Thornley and O'Brien aren't too bad either. Henriques is a top prospect and it will be interesting to see how he goes against a batting lineup full of experience and quality in Lehman, Blewett, Elliot and Cosgrove.

    Yeah Bailey taking a bit of smashing, but i guess he got the wicket of Haddin. Not looking forward to watching Haurtiz bowling looking at how ineffective Bailey is, lets hope a season of grade cricket in QLD has improved him as a batsmen.

    It was an interesting move to bat Christian at 3, i thought they might have gone for Cowan. I guess they only see him as a middle order batsmen. Not a good sign, as that means we might see a lot of Greg Mail in the Pura side.

    Crap as i post Christian gets out.

    4/147 off 31

    I think they got to score 270/280 plus on this pitch, though it seems a lot different from normal North Sydney 300 plus pitches, so maybe 260 plus could be enough.
