    You have got to wonder what Cricket Australia are planning to do about this, if anything.

    There's not much they can do. England has 18 teams. We have 6. If you can play as a local in the place with more spots, why wouldn't you? They could add the ACT to make it 7 teams, but that's about it. The only real thing they have to do is change the rules to allow Australian born players to play as an overseas player, which means that these youngsters could still play in the shield without putting their county career at stake if in the future they are good enough to play in the shield.

    Teenagers Steve Eskinazi and Cameron Steel, both outstanding performers for WA in recent national under-age carnivals, are playing in England and hope to qualify for that country.

    Both players are playing second XI with county teams as local players, though WACA talent manager Brett Jones said it was too early for them to make a final commitment.

    "They have indicated that they want to play in England for the next two years," Jones said.
    I think that may be a bit dramatic. I would assume much like Robson there's no thoughts about international cricket at all. it's just about establishing a career as a professional cricketer
    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 much like Robson, if they're good enough to play for England then they'll end up doing so.

    also Cameron Steel is actually listed as a pom on cricinfo and played for the Somerset U13's, so his case might be a bit different to the other kid and Robson

    Particularly if they can't play state cricket here without placing at risk their county career. it's a sucky spot for Australian cricket, but what can CA actually do? give well paying 4 year contracts to every U17 and U19 player?

    EDIT: And yes I'm aware of the irony.

    He actually talks in the video though, commenting on how he has the same birthday as Shane Warne and confirming he inspired him to take up leggies.

    Hain is listed as an English player already too.

    Steel has an Australian accent in that video. Was probably born and raised in Australia but went to play in England every winter too.

    Cricket Australia have to do something. They could at minimum tell the ECB where to go for once.

    Good to hear that the ladies team have had a pay rise. The top contract is now going to be $52,000 and player payments have increased from $100 per day to $250.

    About bloody time, too. The pay gap is ridiculous and not just at the top tier.

    I once had a batting lesson late last year from an ex-NSW women's cricketer. She was an excellent teacher, too - had a net set up with cones/brand new balls and was very well versed in technique. I left that session feeling a much more confident batsman.

    She charged $40 for an hour and a half. A male batting coach wouldn't think twice about charging $70 for a session half as long and would still have a fully booked schedule.
