    Smith was a decent signing because at the time they weren't sure where Haddin was at re: international level. Smith is decent keeping cover but definitely shouldn't be played as a specialist bat.

    yeah there's not a lot of keeping depth in nsw currently so i don't mind d. smith as that. but as a batsman no way jose. but the sixers sorta exposed a loop-hole in injury replacements, in that you have to be injured for the whole thing. which is fine...until you've got 6 people injured or playing for aus.

    Considering Sam Whiteman, Jimmy Peirson and Brad Jones weren't picked up. There were better back up keeping options who are better batsmen.

    Nah they really aren't better t20 options than Smith, no way.

    which is to say next season, they should allow replacements for players picked in international teams. maybe make it the replacement has to be on your supp list, instead of being on anyone's supp list.

    Yeah, I agree that Smith was the best NSW keeping cover available, but getting stuck with him as a specialist bat is less than ideal.

    The fact that they're stuck with 13 players is somewhat poor though. Either allow larger squads across the board or let them bring in players for internationals.

    Who did they replace Hazlewood with?
