    Good win by the Vics
    Loved the Quiney cameo at the end of their innings

    ( good work by his fanboi Ian Healy)

    Well bowled by John Coleman on debut.

    CA XI having a poor start like last year, hope they can improve like last year

    Appreciating Tom Moody's commentary and that he gets his fellow commentators to talk about cricket..First time I had heard Justin Langer ever say anything remotely interesting !

    Yeah Tom Moody is a rarity in Australian commentary in that he actually seems to know what he's talking about

    There's already been quite a few quicks in this matador cup that are a hell of a lot better than the likes of Joe Mennie. How far would Ben Cutting have been off the pace? He would be a valuable bat as well and probably a better bowling option then Mennie, Worrall and Tremain.

    Just continues to baffle me that these were the guys selected to play in the ODIs.

    Does Joe Mennie even play One Day cricket for SA?

    South Africa has lost a really talented kid to WA who played in this tournament and then got selected in the CA XI for the u19 tournament.

    Think he will be a name to watch going forward for Australia. Bradley Hope.

    Played 25 List A matches, averages ~45 with the ball and has never taken a 5-for.

    He's 27, btw. It's literally as if they decided to keep all the decent bowlers at home to play domestically.
    do you think people will be allowed to make violins?
    who's going to make the violins?

    What seems to have happened is that they picked Worrall, Mennie and Tremain for Australia A in four-day cricket based on good Shield seasons, then kept them around for the one day series of that A tour because they'd done well in the four dayers... and then just called them straight up to the ODI side when there were 10 injuries from that.

    Tremain was available for every Matador Cup game last season and played none of them. Worrall played about half of them and Mennie played most of them but was terrible.

    It is just absolutely bizarre that everyone is injured though. I would probably say Paris/Behrendorff are next in line but they even recovering from injuries.

    Who else is there ? Cutting ? Bird ? Richardson ? Bollinger ? Sandhu ?

    Paris still isn't fit and Behrendorff is just coming back as you said. Abbott is only just coming back now as well.

    The other blokes you listed are the options who should've been ahead of Mennie/Worrall IMO. It's really weird that Richardson who has a good List A record and was actually reasonably recently playing ODIs has been over-looked, but the rest all have at least understandable reasons for being left out (although perhaps not compared to who was picked).

    Richardson and Tye being left out for Mennie and Worrall is bizarre. At least with Tremain he did extremely well in that A-team quad series.

    I think you guys are all making the mistake of assuming the selectors were actually interested in winning the series. Without the best available quicks, they were up against it anyway so for me it was about having a look at Worrall, Mennie and Tremain against top opposition for future Ashes series' and a little bit of a reward for good Shield seasons. We now know that Mennie and Worrall should not be considered for higher honours no matter how many Shield poles they take, or, if they did well, you have reliable back-up for Starc, Hazlewood and Pattinson. That's very useful info for the price of a meaningless cash-cow ODI series without burning the guys you really like who are still developing. Using stand-alone ODI series' as Test auditions is a grand Aussie tradition.

    For what it's worth, I think Tremain showed a little too.

    I hope Jimmy's innings aren't this short and disappointing in other spheres of his life.
