    Why's Trego not bowling I wonder?
    They said he wasn't 100% had a bad foot.
    1) Ross is Boss.
    2) See point 1.

    Trego bowls pies anyway, especially in T20.

    'Stats' is not a synonym for 'Career Test Averages'

    I quite liked Cachopas bowling - considering he is a batsman first and primarily.

    Maybe not the best bowler "in this form of the game" (heh heh), but he really stepped up to the plate for Somerset during their injury crisis in the County Championship this season: Cricket Records | Records | County Championship Division One, 2012 | Most wickets | ESPN Cricinfo

    11th highest wicket-taker in the top flight..not too shabby.

    Yeah I know he had a good championship season; I made several posts about how surprised I was that teams were conspiring to let him have such good figures. Doesn't mean he doesn't bowl pies though.

    As dominant as Ryder is in t20, I much prefer watching him play the line of the ball. The across the line swipes are impressive, but when he's playing those cover drives and back foot punches in test cricket he looks like a real world class batsman.

    Anyone following the Gillette cup. seifert with a ton already. He is a 6th former right? I wonder if he will bother going to school next year or just try to play FC cricket instead?

    Sounds like someone with a big future. Interestingly, the guy whose records he's breaking at St Peters previously belonged to Olympic javelin thrower Stuart Farquhar who was apparently a good fast bowler as well.

    How big are these schools like CHBS, PNBHS etc. ? Kings , the defending Gillette champs from 2010 and 2011, have 920 kids, 180 of whom are girls. AGS in Auckland has 2600 boys.

    I think that would be a pretty easy decision. School.

    I thought Duffy said he hadn't attended school in ages and he is a 7th former.

    Back in my day you could get into university after 6th form - so I would go play FC cricket as long as had the grades in year 12 to get into uni later in life.

    If high school teachers like Aldridge and Scott can fit in thier jobs and then also get a paid sport during summer holidays, then I reckon a 16 year old can manage school and not throw it away for a 30k retainer.

    and oldies always try to tell us how they had it hard compared to us. Academic inflation has gone through the roof, leaving in year 12 with the intention of going to uni is a massive risk for very little reward, even if you have the grades.

    It dovetails perfectly. It's only semi-pro really below the top 20 odd on central contracts. So you either want to be a teacher with decent summer holidays, or a uni student, or some other income stream
