    Steve O'Keefe latest player to be pulled out of the game against England this week. He'll be playing Shield for NSW
    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

    Guessing Bollinger has been ruled out and SOK was wanted by NSW. (or Lyon is out for some reason)

    From a Bl000000s point of view that's a win (so long as it's not Dougeh out) but **** they want to give the pommy bats as much time in the middle as possible.

    Nothing like the old days when we used to enjoy having the state teams towel up the tourists before the tests so they went in as low on confidence as possible.

    Our state teams aren't good enough to do that even if they tried, to state the obvious. No point pining about something which is a total impossibility these days.

    When they named SoK in that squad, I thought they would be a bowler short in the Shield if Dougeh was ruled out.

    Warner, Maddo, Scooter, TPC*, Moises, Patterson, Haddin+, SoK, Copeland, Cando Sandhu, Lyon (Dermo Abbott 12th)

    These nicknames are seriously hard to keep up with.

    Come now Dan, that would never happen. They'd sooner call up me than actually have a deep batting lineup.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    I loved how the 2nd XI/CA side was perfectly structured, but still managed to include two wicket keepers

    Wait, isn't it all but confirmed Doug won't play Shield? My impression was that he could be out for a couple of weeks.

    of course there's still the issue of replacing a seamer with a spinner

    QLD looking to get their first win of the season have selected a good batting lineup, but still no room for Pomers Pomersbach who hit 80 the other day in Grade Cricket.

    James Hopes (c)

    Cameron Boyce

    Joe Burns

    Ben Cutting

    Peter Forrest

    Chris Hartley

    Nathan Hauritz

    Usman Khawaja

    Chris Lynn

    Alister McDermott

    Michael Neser

    Nathan Reardon (subject to a fitness test)

    (12th man to be named)

    Feldman and Gannon are injured and Harris is resting. I wonder if Gale was available.

    *proper bowler

    They'd still play a trillion bowling options, just none of them would actually be any good. The SoK-less team I was imagining still had Copeland-Abbott-Sandhu-Lyon-Henriques-Smith.

    From that team I've posted there, it wouldn't surprise me to see Patterson left out for dermo abbott just to make it more bowler-heavy ridiculousness

    For sure, but sending out such weak bowling line ups does rankle. We should have taken the chance to give our real fringe players a shot at inflicting a few mental scars, but the fact is we're scared they'd be the ones shown up.
