    What happened to the Chappell-Hadlee?

    Was a bloody good rivalry while it lasted, mostly because we couldn't defend 350 without the spectre of Pidge.

    What killed it? No money? Burnout? Overlap with IPL? 50-over game out of vogue?

    Would sit still for a 5-match Twenty20 series even.

    I think in the end it was decided that there just wasn't enough time (and the series wasn't profitable enough) to smoosh an extra 3 ODI's into an already crowded summer calendar. You could see things heading that way when they decided to make the Oz vs Nz world cup fixture stand for the CH trophy in 2011.

    Nah, I don't remember one either. I don't think there ever was one. It just kind of faded away.

    A shame - some of my all-time favourite ODIs were Chappell-Hadlee games, and I don't just mean the 330+ ones. This one was absolutely sensational.

    And I always thought it meant a bit more than the average bilateral ODI series. Sure, Australia often rested players, but all the ones who played always seemed to be really up for it. Like here...

    It's a shame as it was my favourite ODI series.

    Composite CH XI

    1. S Watson
    2. B Haddin+
    3. R Ponting
    4. R Taylor
    5. M Clarke
    6. M Hussey
    7. D Vettori
    8. K Mills
    9. M Johnson
    10. S Bond
    11. B Lee

    Number 5 spot hardest to fill tbh. No one really excelled in that position apart from Symonds, but I felt he couldn't be in there overall ahead of the others.

    Hayden unlucky to miss out? Stats admittedly skewed by one preposterously big ton.

    Yeah 1 ton and no other 50 plus scores in the rest of his game. Not worthy imo.
