    Should we allow an Australian team in the Georgie Pie Super Smash?

    Or would it lower the standard too much? Discuss.

    Get the Comets in there IMO.
    Rejecting 'analysis by checklist' and 'skill absolutism' since Dec '09
    'Stats' is not a synonym for 'Career Test Averages'

    I dont actually have a problem with this so we have a second division and punishes the last placed big bash team by having to play in front of smaller crowds. The move will give them more confidence when they begin to win again.

    Who knows in 10 years a NZ team might make a big bash semi.

    I don't know what a "Georgie Pie Super Smash" is but it sounds like something Mark Cosgrove would be good at

    The 3rd best team in NZ beat the Australian champions. Just saying.

    CANTERBURY KINGS vs SYDNEY THUNDER

    not saying that anyone is wrong or right, or better than the other, but that is hardly an actual Sydney Thunder team

    I have no idea who half those players are, they certainly aren't going to get a game in the big bash even if they are part of the squad (which I doubt most are)

    edit: not that it's really relevant either way . I'm sure any NZ side could beat any Aus side on a given day, and vice versa.

    Could benefit as a feeder club,could be quite competitive.
    But with the way things happen i don't see it happening.
    Especially with a Cricket Australia xl in the Mettador cup,seems to fill their cup.

    Hira made 29* (9). Your argument is invalid; cricket broke.

    BBL, 12 teams

    Melbourne x 2
    Sydney x 2
    Brisbane
    Perth
    Adelaide
    Hobart
    Canberra
    Cairns? help me out here Aussies
    North Island/Auckland
    South Island/Christchurch

    If this ever happened it would be awesome.

    Edit: and it's go obviously good in my mind I'm sure it will happen.

    Should just let the players from NZ/AU participate freely in the NZ/AU competitions. No restriction on player count.

    I suspect the old pocket book would work as a fine natural stop on Wellington fielding 8 Aussies Power Papps, Woodcock and Jeets.

    If you dilute the Australian player pool to 10 teams, the 2 NZ ones will dominate. You'd end up with something looking roughly like this (using the Island of Origin T20 teams as a base, so excluding Test players and doing a bit of shuffling for balance reasons):

    North: 1. Worker, 2. Devcich, 3. Munro, 4. Bruce, 5. Young, 6. Ronchi +, 7. de Grandhomme, 8. Grobbelaar, 9. Sodhi, 10. Milne, 11. McCleneghan.

    South: 1. Broom, 2. Papps +, 3. Rutherford, 4. Bracewell, 5. Neesham, 6. Ellis, 7. NcCullum, 8. Wheeler, 9. Nuttall, 10. Duffy, 11. McMillan

    If you're trying to bring in two more teams of Australians, diluting it down even more (I mean, weigh up on one hand the number of contracted players you thought were **** in BBL|05, compared to the number of uncontracted players you thought were harsh to miss out), then those two NZ teams are gonna be pretty bloody competitive. Even more so if you slot a couple of internationals into them.

    So yeah you'd have to consider NZers and Australians as domestic players across all teams, else you've got Cameron Borgas getting a game for the Cairns Crocodiles and Jeet Raval sitting on the bench for the Northern Ace Firebucks, or Tastle sitting out for the Southern VoltWizards
