    Anyone else reckon HRV Cup atm is not much worse than BBL? Lots of dross in the BBL.

    Hope Bradburn appreciated that 28(28) from Devcich. Watling playing some classic Hessonball at 8.

    Haven't watched much of the BBL.

    The bowling across all formats has improved out of sight. Shutting down that stupid biomechanics academy was the best decision we ever made. Batting is probably about the same.

    So why's BJ not good enough for T20Is? I'm a massive fan of de Boorder but surely you want your Test keeper to have every chance to get in some form and get used to keeping over there.

    BJ's strike-rates are generally unacceptable in LO cricket.

    I'd prefer our test keeper stay away from this format anyway.

    Who cares about T20Is outside the world cup? The format is made for domestix. The format just suits the league format, rather than 3 matches totalling 9 hours cricket over 3-5 days.

    Yeah they're using that series as an open net, let's face it. Mills bowled 4 overs 2/6 in a T20 in SA eight weeks ago, yet Gillespie, then Bates, were preferred.

    Yep and obviously he's our form ODI batsman of the last 5 minutes, but this needs to be tempered against his overall career which isn't as flash as you'd think given the way people rave about his qualities. Slow scorer in LO and not a prolific scorer in 4D cricket.

    I'm surprised they picked Bates considering both sides are taking the piss with their squads (no disrespect to the debutants intended, but it seems pretty obvious both teams want a look at certain players). I would have thought rather than go for the banker in Bates our selectors would have flown over another young guy like Hugglejuggle or Duffy.

    Yeah, it would've been a good time to run with a Wheeler/Small/Henry if they weren't all made of glass. I like the idea of giving the young guns a bit of a look at international level.

    Right now he isn't likely to make the grade tbh. He's had plenty of chances and hasn't taken them. His technique isn't great but what really kills him is his shot selection. Maybe I jinx him but whenever I watch him he loves to play a daft shot. He isn't a good bowler either.

    ND must see something there though. He must kill it at club level to keep earning his spot. Will be interesting to see if he kicks on. ND probably need it in the 4 dayers.

    nice try

    edit: excellent Butler trolling tonight however.
