Top **** was clearly driven to cricket and made his poor cousin field for him while he sat in the shade and ate cake

Will say this once and then nothing else. Defamation laws quite clear in Aus.be careful.
Best Christmas present is news that Patto is back for the Odis against the little Sri Lankans.

Patto's a rubbish LO bowler though

It has created a how bunch of young fast bowlers who break down as soon as they hit the 20s. As they are expected to bowl 20 plus overs in day, after only 10 overs a day in their teens and having no bowling fitness.
You look around domestic cricket and there is barely any fast bowlers in their mid to late 20s pushing for state spots. That is mainly because so many fast bowlers break down in their early 20s. Once they are expected to actually bowl long spells, after barely bowling at all in their teens.
I agree you shouldn't have quick bowling 20 overs in a row in their teens. But they should be bowling enough where they are getting bowling fit, especially in high intensive youth games like U17 and U19 championships. So once they hit the 20s and in theory the bodies should be able to bowl at full pace and handle a multiple days of cricket. They are actually bowling fit enough to handle Test, FC cricket or grade cricket. Right now there is lots of young fast bowlers that can't even handle grade cricket for a full season.

Anyone else had enough of talking about Australian selection policy?
Sri Lanka to play the same lineup? Welegedara, Kulasekara, Eranga, Herath with Matthews and Dilshan in support is quite frankly a terrible bowling line-up. Excusing all bias, I want Australia to score heavy against this lineup. Never a better chance for our fringe players like Cowan and Hughes to lock themselves in until the next Ashes.
Like Cricket was around when Burgey could do anything in the under 11s group.

I just think that Invers and Pat Howard think they're being cutting edge by trying to anticipate when guys will get injured
As evidenced by Hilf getting injured straight after a rest, and Watto the same at Allan Border field, sports science has its place, but should never of itself be determining team lineups
