    What sort of pace does Miller bowl at? Does he do much with the ball?

    He's not. I'm guessing he's the best approximation of what Dan Christian brings to the table and so, to minimise disruption to the others when Christian comes back into the side, he's been shoved in to bat 6.

    Just medium pace; would be mid to late 120s I guess. More of a line bowler who looks to move it off the seam than a real swinger of the ball from what I know. Was worth more than 5 overs out of 113 on this wicket if he was going to be in the side, anyway.

    I think the strangest thing about him not bowling much is the fact that Lyon is captain though; I'm sure he would've played a bit with Lyon for the Comets, and he opened the bowling in that side.

    Yeah I thought so too. What's strange is how little he bowled though. I guess Lyon and the selectors just aren't on the same page with it.

    Was easily their best batsman in the warm-up matches, got a ton and a ninety against full opposition state line-ups.

    Victoria have been sent the task of chasing one run to win the match then.

    Hastings in the wickets again, terrible start to the Shield from WA.

    Looks a monty to be nailed by a skiddy bowler like Hopes, nipping it back in. Plays with some time, though, give him that.

    SA look like a club team with an overseas pro in it.

    Caught in gully off the tall seamer with one nipping away. Could not have got it more wrong, tbh.
