    Just noticed the relative ease of Kelvin Smith's knock. The kid's 17 or 18 I think and made a good 170 off 260 balls against an attack of Abbott, Bills, Sandhu, Zampa and Doran - all of whom I think are pretty good bowlers.

    Good to see some actual South Australians coming through the ranks.

    Is it bad that our futures lineup isn't much worse than our Shield lineup.

    Ugh South Australia in general.

    Hard to believe he played a Test, looking at him now.

    The system as it stands does not promote excellence. Or even solid, consistent cricket. What I find incredible is that I haven't played grade cricket since about 2000 yet from my mates still playing and other guys I know still in the system, still hearing all the same old stories.

    This is why I was sceptical when Chuck Berry was saying he wanted to see SA cricketers go back to play grade cricket, head out to training, etc. Not of his motives but what they actually stood to gain out of it i.e. not much. I notice he's not said anything along those lines for a while and I can't blame the guy. It's a complicated mix of club politics, old mentalities from **** coaches and easy runs/wickets against **** teams which results in a system producing teams full of downhill skiers. If you show some flash and talent when you're 14, you'll be picked in higher grades no matter what else you do until you're dead/a club legend. Late bloomers or even the slight possibility of being one, go play footy. One or two good performances, write your ticket for the rest of the season.

    SACA basically gave up on club cricket years ago and it's not hard to see why. SA cricket is basically what the Australian Test side would have been like if Greg Chappell was in charge of selection. I'm pretty keen to hear anything from Eloquentia or Riggins, etc. or anyone closer to the action which contradicts the above because, like I said, I'm not in a club any more.

    EDIT: It's hard to enumerate the exact problems, of course, but I think a great barometer of the level of coaching these guys get at grade level is in the standard of fielding and their non-specialist skill from locals picked to play for SA. When was the last time an SA quick could hold a bat or field? Gillespie?

    haha, pretty sure if you look in every domestic thread for the past 5 or so seasons, you'll see a similar post from me. How boring.

    First world problem, but any idea why when I watch the live streams of domestic cricket on my TV through HDMI, every 5 minutes or so I get a no signal, but that doesn't happen if I watch a TV show or movie.

    I hope Finch makes a big score today, he is well over due.

    Ryan Harris, Mitch Cleary, Kade Richardson were too bad with their lesser skills.

    Bowling too good if you ask me. Should tone it down so there no chance him getting selected for Australia and missing games for NSW and Sixers, playing for those retards.

    Mennie destroying WA, 2/1 so far. Clearly a dodgy deck given SA just collapsed on it.

    EDIT: WA 3/3.

    Or maybe they are just playing the UACA (Under-performing Aussies Cricketers Association).
