    doran probably would have made sense. but yeah i'm pretty confident Zampa will play.

    Pitches to improve for Shield games - ABC Grandstand Sport - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    yeah but since when has reason played any part in the nsw selection process. this is a bread and butter selection for them! everyone from 7 down bowls!

    maddinson
    henry
    haddin
    smith
    rohrer
    moz
    sok
    abbott
    haze
    zampa
    dougeh

    def seems feasible. particularly with sok od's game still a question mark. doran would have made more sense tho.

    that said they may have had enough of maddinson up top (ha! unlucky)

    well looking at the glass half full, that side bats down to 9. zampa made the side on runs, as much as wickets. scored more runs then maddison this season, but that isn't hard.

    I have played Zampa a number of times and whilst before this season I could see your points I believe this season he has actually really earned a shot at playing.

    He has taken at least 1 if not 2 Second XI five wicket hauls this season and then taken six wickets and scored 120 runs in the last Futures Game.

    He has never been a big grade cricket dominator which is something I am wary of he does OK averaging 26 or 27 with the ball but never really scores runs in grade cricket.

    His slider is getting a lot of blokes out at the moment.

    He bats higher in Second XI than grade cricket sometimes.

    The main reason why he scores more runs in 2nd XI is that he gets a chance, because the NSW selectors pick 6-7 bowlers in every XI. So all the bowlers bat 2 spots higher then grade cricket, where teams pick proper XIs. But Zampa can bat.

    I would think batting at 7 or 8 is more than enough opportunity to score runs if you are good enough.

    The fact is he has never scored a first grade 50 in four seasons in Sydney. And his highest score last season was 25.

    The bowlers are better in Sydney grade cricket then 2nd XI cricket, maybe.

    I don't he looks handy with the bat from what I have seen. Moses was the same, never could score a run consistently at grade level, but kept turning them out at 2nd XI level.

    copeland's injury and starc's likely absence has probably opened up a spot for Sandhu in the next shield match btw. 'less zampa takes 7/21 tomorrow and they decide to go with two spinners

    oh my god they haven't played Zampa. could this be the start of a new selection era?


    probably not. abbott coming in at 3 and smashing them anyway so we probs should have played Zampa anyway. also haddin batted 44 balls at north sydney and didn't hit a six. dead set....
