    I think Raphael will open with Klinger and Travis head will go in at 5/6, is Zampa the one who misses out on non-turning tracks and when Lyon is playing?

    Zampa has gone to SA. Abbott, Bills, Conway, Cruickshank, Doran and Lalor deserve to be delisted after the season they have had. My NSW squad for 2013 /14 would be:

    Batsmen: Clarke, Watson, Warner, Maddinson, Rohrer (c), Henry, Hughes, Patterson
    Keepers: Haddin, Nevill, Dawson
    Spinners: O'Keefe, Smith
    Seamers: Bollinger, Starc, Cummins, Hazlewood, Henriques, Copeland, Sandhu, Tremain

    I would like to see rookie contracts scrapped completely as either you're good enough for a full contract or you're not! No one has performed well enough in the Futures League or Grade Cricket to deserve being offered a contract.

    Really no one in grade performed well enough?

    With the squad you've selected obvs Clarke, Warner, Watson, Haddin, Starc and Cummins have CA contracts so surely a few more spots are up for grabs. I think Abbott might get one.

    i dont see why Conway would lose his contract and Sean Abbott actually performed solidly for the 2nd XI so i wouldn't delist him if we dont have to. he remains an interesting prospect
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    indeed, being only 21yo and having already scored two tons in the 2nd XI, a case could be made for saying Abbott is one of the best batting prospects in the state!

    Well there was no one that scored over 1000 runs this season. The first time in a couple season no one has reached that mark.

    Also the top batsmen included Dawson and Criuckshank and great mail man, Greg Mail.

    The only guy that averaged over 50 and scored 700 runs was Phillip Wells.

    The leading run scorer was 29 year old, Matthew Hughston. With a career average in the mid 30s, he not FC standard.

    Really apart from Wells and taking a punt on Matthew Day, there is no real batsmen in grade cricket who deserve a contract. If anything it is time to look at bring some players back from interstate (Cazzulino) or overseas (Sam Robson).

    Bowling wise there is plenty of depth, even losing Zampa.
