    Yeah he might be rested but for me its a risk as he wouldn't have played any proper Cricket for a while.

    I hope Watson and Warner both play. I made note of the venue in my previous post as its convenient that the Shield match is being played in the same city as the First Test.

    That's it.

    Cricinfo: As for Clarke, the match ends a brief but productive stint as NSW captain, with the Blues not engaging in another Shield fixture until the week before the first Test. Clarke will now undergo a personal "boot camp" to get his fitness up to the level required for Tests, before making a rare club appearance for Western Suburbs in Sydney grade competition.

    I always enjoy it when the Test players play a game for their club side. Must be such a career highlight for some to bowl at Michael Clarke.

    He might just bat in the match. What I'd do, anyway.

    Oh, and Patto.

    Looked like a very dodgy LBW to get rid of Rogers at the WACA.

    Loving the live stream, am hoping to record every ball they show for every match.

    Has the # 6 position become the WK slot in Shield?

    Haddin, Paine & Handscomb so far this year?



    Edit: Is Finch injured as Handscomb now batting at 5?

    Haddin, Paine and Wade have been batting at six for most of their careers.

    Handscomb is batsmen who keeps, so it not surprising he bats in the top 6.

    If the other keepers could bat better, they would probably be batting at 6, unless the side has a batting all rounder.

    Pattinson is such a star. Really is a quality bowler.

    Such a dominate day 1 for the Vics. Love how McDonald murders state attacks these days.

    WA are still SO frustrating, Mitch Marsh has the 9th highest first class batting average in the team and has a lower bowling average than Johnson, Rimmington and Hogan. Not sure he is the answer at 6 just yet.

    Maybe not, but he's a PONI and therefore has the spot the Australian selectors want him to have. I still reckon he'll come good this year though.

    Or he could drop down the order like Henriques has, and actually earn a spot in the state top 6. Obviously he's not the only bat struggling, so its not a big issue yet.

    Andrew Robinson is batting cautiously to date, 0 from 32 balls.

    Looks a typical early season Gabba wicket with plenty in it for the bowlers.

    Unfortunately Triffit isn't a good enough bat for 6, and you'd want to play 4 specialist bowlers and Marsh. Doesn't leave them much choice.

    He made a 60 in the first Shield game, didn't he?

    I think so. Just found it crazy that he's got the 9th best average in the team.

    Cricinfo currently has Colin Miller's stats for Brockley's mate Sammy. Think he and SA would take Colin's bowling record.
