    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    Nah, can't be. They produce so many effective local talents.

    top wicket takers in both comps doesn't mean anything?

    or if guys like christian and lyon count for other states then someone like mark cosgrove or ryan harris doesn't rate a mention?

    nunfa

    we had to sit on him though. and his mate who was above the grade and also got nunfa. had to try to make up for it against the fat old blokes though who took 9 at about 7rpo

    then the two ****s came out and opened the batting. I got one early, the tassie **** scored a quick 30 odd and out

    To be fair Harris was born in NSW. It's not that easy to develop talent compared to NSW/Vic anyway given their pool is about 5 times the size. Plus we lose about 15-20 a grade spots a week due to poms with Lehmann's academy.

    i think its less about where guys were born and more where they actually developed their games, i.e richo born in nt, but played what, 6 years of grade cricket before getting a gig.

    I honestly think Adelaide grade is of a decent standard. Riggins would probably be more qualified to make the call but you see the likes of Sam Billings (20.1), Joe Gatting (32.9), Max Waller (12.7/23.9), Liam Livingstone (19.6), Ed Young (16.2/24.4), Tom Bailey (15.3/22.2 (a lot of that in B grade), Steve Leach (21.7), Aneesh Kapil (19.7/17.4 (sample size issue)), Nick Harrison (15.7/20.9 (started off in D grade and worked his way up. Awful stuff from his club)) and Josh Davey (6.14/28.0) all struggle or perform passably in Adelaide grade cricket - and all are first class or second team players in England.

    Surely if players who would seem to be above the standard are consistently average, especially with the bat then maybe it's of a better standard than one would think. Plunkett hasn't set the world on fire, the fella who came from mosman, barber went from averaging 30 in sydney first grade to 20 here.

    It's not a mockery like you think it is

    Yeah, I'd agree with that.

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Haha I happen to know Barber very well. I imagine his statistics(which are over 7 innings) would have dropped substantially by the end of the season. Look at his previous seasons as well. Shouldn't have moved in the first place.

    Your right though. A lot of the First Class and 2nd grade players that have come to Sydney have started in 3rd grade and generally struggled.

    We had 7 or 8 guys over the last 4 or 5 seasons play at my club in Sydney and a 3 of them averaged less than 20 in 3rd grade.

    Makes you wonder...

    Prince mate, it's your turn if you know what I mean.

    Looking forward to Fawad's debut, loving watching him bowl so far in both ODs that he's played.
