    Not sure re Magoffin but in the case of say Phil Jaques who I suspect has dual passports / citizenship, why is he prevented from being classified as a local player in both the Uk and Australia?

    Well you can't be a local of two countries can you?

    Magoffin has signed as Sussex's overseas player for the remainder of this season and next season.

    Hmmm perhaps not simultaneously but would've thought he'd be considered a local in whichever country he was in and just switch each cricket season.

    Enjoying the Jarrod Oakley-Nicholls reference by the way.

    Is this why Lee was not offered a contract by Cricket Australia?

    Could Paine be going to WA?

    WA making play for Paine

    Who would be the Tasmanian keeper? Triffit or Jones?

    Hughes dominates at the Adelaide Oval. Averages over 100 at the ground I believe.

    Massive acquisition for South Australia.

    Oooooooo, mistake I reckon. One feels the big thing that got him as many chances as he did was how many runs he scored on tough decks. Cue cries of FTB no matter how many runs he scores (and he will score plenty).

    /* annual Redbacks pessimism alert

    Dunno how much it'll affect the team's fortunes anyway. Last couple of years, getting good/solid starts hasn't been the biggest problem, the tail starting at 5 has been.

    */

    EDIT: Maybe the selectors reckon that's solved with Christian and Cooper's form last year but how long will that last I wonder?

    All the result of a wise decision by CA to boot credibility of the game by cutting the number of contracts until S Smith wasn't offered one.

    We need Hughes strike rate to push for results, at the very least we will lose with some panache.

    I distinctly remember reading in a thread somewhere, a bunch of you predicted this. NSW was brimming with POIs (I think that's the proper acronym) and some had to get squeezed out.

    I'm just reading the article now, not sure what to think.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    I don't think the SA lineup will be that weak, Botha can hold up the tail from 7, which lets you play Ludeman or C***thwaite at 8 and three specialist bowlers. Who've you got in terms of middle order batsmen, apart from Christian and Cooper?

    Hughes, Harris, Klinger, Cooper, (Batsman-that-isn't-Borgas), Christian, Botha, Ludeman/C***thwaite, Richardson, (Bowler) , George.
