    Test players sent back to their states | cricket.com.au
    CA orders players back 2 states,dunno how this will go,players will drop out,and some may go 2 CA xl,prepare for the first one day series with all players available.

    Might be refreshing to see a 50 Over Tournament with teams at full strength, even if the circumstances are unfortunate.

    Interesting to see what type of crowds would show up.

    I reckon the same as last year,4/5 biggies retired,Warner and Johnson missing,half of those 15 squad are virtual unknowns to the gerneral public.Also its October and fans generally don't come out to November 1st test,and Metador cup is poorly promoted on Channel 9 should I say Gem or Cricket Australia.
    Same as for except for diehards like us,Sydney fans may go to NSW games,but no one else,I feel Cricket Australia xl games will get little coverage or fans watching.

    Shame it's starting basically the day after holidays finish. I wouldn't expect much, but TV ratings would be what CA are interested in, particularly with more D/Ners this time

    Sorry I am a cynic in life,despite being religious.
    But yes day/night matches may garner some interest.

    Mmh you're right, I suppose it doesn't matter to CA or most people in the end when the BBL exists.

    Just wish some of the casual fans would take a walk on the extreme side and try the boring versions of the game for once, I'll admit going to Shield and OD Cup games are so ridiculously comfy with so few people but it feels like a guilty pleasure with so few people bothering.

    Look I will be watching.
    But people calm down after footy season,the Spring Carnival is on for horse racing,and the Bathurst 100,+the Rugby World Cup,the AFL draft,Rugby League tests and Ireland vs Australia in aerial ping pong etc.
    So i don't see fans switching onto the first test.
    Now if Dave Warner was playing for NSW maybe,but their is a question whether Steve Smith or Mitchell Starc would be allowed to play by the CA anyway.(rotation policy).

    Resting Starc I would get, but it's not like these are high intensity, mentally taxing games for someone like Smith...
    citoyens, vouliez-vous une révolution sans révolution?

    those nights were on fire
    we couldn't get higher
    we didn't know that we had it all
    but no one warns you before the fall

    Resting an in-form batsman is crazy IMO

    unless he genuinely is tired and feels like he needs a rest

    I've got Monday off, are any of the games televised that day?

    If not, I'm keen for some Cricket. I'll go to QLD vs TAS at North Sydney or NSW vs CA XI at Bankstown if anyone is keen.

    Brockley, the whole Matador experience is about cost-cutting more then making money. Sure, bigger crowds is always nice but CA must have figured that the saving on flights for players+staff+officials makes one city appealing.

    Will Jimmy P go back to CA XI? Surely he will.

    NSW are going to have a tough decision fitting in the test players.. Dougeh might be squeezed out.

    Will WA be pressured to play Bancroft?

    From this whole Bangla-issue the state that has handled it the best is SA, theyve barely noticed the Test guys back.
