    Well done mate. You just need to fix up in the second para: failing to or unable to rotate the strike.

    I've been a Bailey admirer for a long time and do agree its an important year for him. Unfortunately, his success in the ODI team means he just doesn't get the same opportunities as others in the Shield.
    NRL Tipping Champion 2014

    Over 0.2: Putland to Nevill, OUT, no run, full ball swings in late to crash into his pads. Nevill is almost falling over trying to get bat on it but can't. Huge shout for LBW and Umpire Martell eventually raises the finger! P.Nevill - lbw b:Putland 0 (1 ball, 1 minute).

    Cheers for the correction, fixed it up then.

    I don't think we need different selectors but they definitely need to overhaul the selection process - seems like players are being picked on talent/peak potential rather than on whether they are the best player available at the time. Starc, Agar & Henriques would be good examples
    Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick

    For the record, always happy to take article suggestions for sports outside of cricket too - F1, MotoGP, AFL & Football are the sports I have enough knowledge to write on

    As for the article suggestion, thanks a lot - really love when people suggest things to write, nice to know what people would like to see. I'll definitely look into it - I have a bit to say about the treatment of players because of their age so it'd work in nicely with that - what do you think?
    Yeah, something went away with the dawn of the Hamilton/Vettel era.

    I don't really have a view point in general regarding treatment of players based on their age. Individual cases are quite different. But yes, different countries reward/punish different age groups. India rewards young batsmen but not bowlers. Australia the opposite. In Katich, they missed a massive trick.
    If you were that old, and that kind, and the very last of your kind, you couldn't just stand back and watch children cry.

    Stop writing about things I've been talking about in the last week to a much better standard than I ever could.

    Joking, this is some genuinely accomplished writing. If you can spread the word about your blog maybe this won't be strictly non-moneymaking for long.

    Just posted this - definitely not my best article by any means, not that happy with it but ah well!

    Also - it's not all cricket and it's not too detailed.

    Hahaha appreciate it mate! It would be nice but it's hard to spread the word, I'm not fussed though.

    I am studying journalism at La Trobe in Melbourne, but these pieces are purely for fun/entertainment. They aren't related to coursework or moneymaking in any way.

    I'm always open to criticism & feedback, I want to become a better writer. Please go ahead.

    Will read all the articles but went first for the subject that appealed most 'The Archie Jackson way'. Excellent piece, the story about the towel was deeply moving.

    Probably my favourite out of all that I've written. What a young man/player he was.
