    Look, I think we can all agree that Burt Cockley hitting his wicket attempting a pull shot is a fitting way to end the Shield rounds.

    QLD make the Shield with not one batsman who's scored 200 runs for the season averaging 40. Put the 200min thing as some **** would probably find someone.

    Meanwhile Tassies have Ponting, Cosgrove, Doolan, Wells, Krejza and Silk.

    Still, happy to see Burt fit and back playing Shield. It's been a long time.

    Punter is looking a big shot of winning his first Shield. Wanted a Blues final win obvs, but that would be second best. Having dominated the competition he has earned it.

    Yeah I said early on in the season that Id love to see win him win a Shield but now that QLD is in the final I don't really want to see it.

    QLD and the Heat have won the last game of the regular season each time and had results in other games go perfectly. Quite crazy.

    Is there anyone who didn't play this round in with a chance of playing in the final like a Cutting, Krejza; Boyce, Lynn etc?

    I think there's a reasonable chance Queensland might bring a specialist bowler in for Neser, or possibly even Reardon given that Neser hit runs. They know the pitch is going to be flat; I don't think they'll want to be relying on Hopes to be a strike bowler as he has all season on that sort of wicket.

    I have no idea if Cutting will be back from injury by then.

    It might not be that flat. Surely Tassie would be confident enough that their batting is stronger, but yeah ideally we get a strike bowler in place of McDonald at least, hopefully its Cutting.

    Huge task for QLD we willl rely heavily on Hartley, Hopes, Harris you'd expect.

    I'd love to see Hartley make another shield ton in a winning final.

    Incidentally, does the shield finish slightly later this season? I only ask because I remember a couple of seasons ago some grade cricketers were telling me that the state players were back for the final round of club matches, but grade cricket is half way through its finals stage.

    NSW have exceeded my low expectations.

    Pluses have been Sandhu and Zampa who will surely get full contracts for next year, Tremain has also shown promise, Henry double hundred against Sri Lanka, the form of Michael Clarke who has scored almost 2,000 runs @ 50 with four hundreds, three tons from Haddin and Copeland emergence as an all-rounder.

    Minuses have been the long-term injury to Cummins and the batting form of Nevill, Maddinson, Rohrer, Patterson and O'Keefe.

    I think Rohrer is a very good choice as captain. Hopefully it will mean O'Keefe can rediscover the form with bat and ball of two years ago that got him international recognition in the one-day and should have got him test recognition ahead of Beer, Doherty and Lyon whose first class records are mediocre.

    Abbott, Bills, Conway, Doran, Lalor and Cruickshank should be heading for the exit door. New South Wales have thirteen seamers which even with international call ups is far too many. Even with these four out they will still have nine seamers which is more than enough.

    NSW squad for 2013/14: MJ Clarke, SR Watson, DA Warner, SPD Smith, BJ Rohrer, SO Henry, DG Dawson, NJ Maddinson, DP Hughes, KR Patterson, BJ Haddin, PJ Nevill, SNJ O'Keefe, A Zampa, MA Starc, PJ Cummins, MC Henriques, DE Bollinger, JR Hazlewood, TA Copeland, GS Sandhu, CP Tremain,
