Stiff as a wobble board.
Vics only playing 5 bats didn't help his causes either. I can easily understand the reasoning behind playing McKay and then also giving Holland an opportunity. Realistically it was between Handscomb and Finch, nothing wrong with going for the young talent when the other bat has been struggling in that particular format for quite some time.
More my point being Hastings at 7 is a spot too high, to fit in all five bowlers (Hasto, McKay, Sids, Patto, Holland).
Andrew Lynch, chairman of selectors/talent manager, and Shaun Graf, GM of cricket, both from St. Kilda.
Finch still plays his cricket at Geelong, which has produced a number of excellent juniors and guys with rookie contract that haven't gone on.
Man its been a great spell from Sid.
Hopes out to Hastings was a terrible shot given the situation. Can't expect Cutting and Hartley to save us again, we'll do well to make 150 here.
Qld finding the Vics pace attack on a spicy wicket a bit different a proposition to SA.
Tas finding SA to be pretty much as expected.
I like that it was Siddle and Pattinson that took the entire QLD top order. I still want QLD to win by a huge margin, but I do like that half our pace attack is finding form before the tests.
Tom Cooper - making Peter Forrest look international quality since 2011.
Hughes Cordon Watch - 3rd slip. That's 3/3 in the cordon.
Vics in trouble here 5/64 in reply to 149. Finch got more runs in the OD match. Even with his performances last season, its strange call. I doubt he would have made a difference, can't recall too many big runs from him in seaming conditions. Always seem to be a bit of FTB.

Just looking over some First Class records, how come Butterworth hasn't been considered for Test cricket? Got a pretty outstanding bowling record and a good batting average. Same question with James Faulkner.
