    Anyways.... game going on between Vics and The Blues at the G and another Shield batting line-up this season has been bowled out for a mediocre total within the first two sessions of the game, this despite Bushrangers having two batsmen with well over 10000 first class runs.

    havn't seen a whole to of Sandhu tbh but from what ive seen of him Sayers and Copeland it seems a pretty good indication of just how bad our batting stocks are atm and also how bowler friendly the shield wickets are, tbf they all bowl good line and length but they hardly huge swing bowlers

    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    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

    There have been no even remotely bowler-friendly decks at AO this season and Sayers has taken both of his 5-fers there with a sprinkling of 4 and 3's in away games against both strong and weak sides, been beating guys for pace and cut all season. As for the comparison to Copeland/Butterworth, he's quicker (a good 10k's on them) and is basically doing all of his work off the pitch which neither of those two do on a consistent basis. Credit where due, eh?

    Speaking off, Mennie taking 30 wickets in 6 games in concert with Sayers is why SA are second on the ladder. It certainly ain't because of the batting, Mennie being 4th on the batting averages tells a tale. I sincerely hope the rest of the country keeps under-rating them, though.

    Discount all runs made at Roadelaide because it is too flat

    Discount all wickets taken by SA seamers because Roadelaide is too bowler-friendly

    Obvious really

    I love how you actually avoided answering the question.

    He was born in NSW and lived here until his early teens I believe. So that explains that.

    Tasmania made a decent recovery after one of the slowest starts I've ever seen. Was at the match and for the first session and a half they were going at under 2 rpo. At one stage there were 21 maidens out of 54 overs bowled.

    Ponting looked in good touch too before he threw his wicket away. Was basically the only one in the top order who was willing to simply push the singles and not play for the big shot. When I left Tas were 5/100 odd. I'm really surprised that they managed to over double that score in the afternoon.

    QLD bowling figures don't do them justice in this match. Gannon found the edge around 4/5 times and had dropped catches or the ball fall just short of the slips cordon. Ali McDermott bowled very, very well for a long time and Harris was on a hat trick at one stage. It seems to me though that it may have been a mistake to only go into this match with 4 bowlers.
