    the deal with Moz is that he gets subbed in when he turns up. so tremain could take the new ball (but won't.) and then be out of the game at lunch

    Good for Rogers to get another go, thought he was sold a bit short by Tassie, clearly only a FC player and needed to be given more time.

    I hope that Michael Hill is the next batsman to fall in either Shield match, that way we'll have Rogers and Hussey batting together in both games.

    yeah, i thought when we only picked 5 batters it must be hoping that botha/ludes/richo could be 1.5 - 2 batsmen between them, but then they sat richo.

    but hey, it's all about balance. need 5 bowlers to defend low scores.

    i thought it was slightly odd to drop christian for richardson (positive move, but richardson has his problems...) and it turns out they dropped christian for meanie


    which is still a positive move i guess

    I'm a fan so may be a bit biased but I honestly don't see how. Richardson is quicker and gets more seam movement than either Mennie or Worral and can bat a bit. How does he not fit into the SA XI as it stands?

    Oh it's not the right move. Richardson should have played after you named him in the squad. I just thought he might have been left out of the squad in the first place.

    in situations where mid off is straight, worrall could easily start his run up from wide of the man at mid off.

    I would have played both Christian and Richardson itbt. I have nothing against either Mennie or Worrall - they're both much more decent cricketers than SA's reserve batting stocks - but I think the tail is a tad long now so I would've played Christian to rectify that, and Richardson as stated is just straight up a better bowler than those two. As it stands, Botha will be at 6, Ludeman at 7 and Sayers at 8.. that's an awful lot of faith in what has been a misfiring top 5, especially since it contains an entirely unproven opener plucked out of SA grade cricket.

    I think Cooper coming back in for Raphael is inevitable as well but Cooper really doesn't deserve to be playing at the moment, so fair enough call there for now.

    he's made 600 runs in grade cricket this season in 5 games, reckon he's done about as much as you could ask for in terms of a recall.

    Yeah, he scored some Futures runs too, but I just don't think it's been for long enough I guess, especially since he did actually get some sort of recall in the middle of that and kept failing. Didn't have a great Big Bash either; I think he just needs a bit of a break from state cricket.
