    It's ridiculous. Mark Waugh was going on about it in the first game too, and he's not even an outstanding club cricketer yet ffs.

    Is Abbott actually a highly-rated young player or is just a case of Waugh seeing him once or twice on TV and liking the look of him?

    He's very highly rated by NSW Cricket. He wasn't rated anywhere near as highly by some of those at a club side (until this season) Parramatta but it's not just a Mark Waugh thing.

    I do think Mark Waugh thinks more highly of his batting than even the blokes at NSW Cricket who over-rate him, though. Waugh constantly compares him to Henriques who has always shown far more batting potential.

    He Can Bat tho

    I can see Abbott playing a couple of games for Aus as a bit part all rounder who everyone wants out of the team.

    Got a bad feeling about Big Ben. Reckon he'll find himself in Victoria full time next season.

    Indeed and if Turner got a game in the Big Bash and I was paid to make comments to a wide audience I wouldn't sit in the box cheerleading all game, calling him for him to bat in the top four or saying he was the x-factor with the ball.

    I actually like Mark Waugh as a commentator because he doesn't pull any punches as Kohli_Fan would say but no-one tunes in to listen to his over-state the credentials of a player he wants to cheerlead and then moan when the captain bats him in his rightful position.

    I mean if we won't play him in the shield

    that said, it's hard to see him getting into the vic team

    real black mark on the thunder that they didn't get him. i mean, it's not as if they couldn't offer a top 4 spot

    Abbott is totally wasted coming in at 7 in this order. He's a better t20 bat than Rogers, Khawaja and Cosgrove. I've seen him play t20 in the flesh and he's a serious hitter.
