    What a day of cricket.
    Seems like yesterday that SA rolled Tassie.

    Well done to WA for fighting it out.
    Commiserations to NSW, they put up a good show ,almost getting there.

    And well done to SA for making the final.

    A fantastic end to the season.

    Aint cricket grand !

    Bit of a 'classic' that, wasn't it? (I watched a bit before the test match in India started and kept up with the scorecard subsequently).

    That was thrilling! Can't say I'm a huge SA fan but I'm glad WA got the win.

    Nice to see the umpires hug Voges. Given all the players are finished in the Shield for this season I wonder if they all get pissed together

    So that' s how it ended up, an epic last game.
    When the players went to sleep before the last day 3 teams could have dreamt of playing Vic in the final, in the end it was a nailbiter between NSW and SA. Well done to all, it was a fanastic day for the followers of cricket.

    Vics last 2 wickets put on 63 runs after another midorder collaspe, which turned out to be enough when Pattinson took 5/7 and had the Bananabenders at 7/21.

    Tas would have been happy with their bowling performance against SA with only a stand between Carey and Sayers getting them over 200. Some solid midorder batting with MacDermotts century and Websters 50 giving the Apple eaters a 100 run lead.
    The Croweaters put up a better show in the second dig led by Ferguson, Cooper and Dalton but even then only a 69 run last wicket stand by Zampa and Worrall made a decent target to defend, until their pacers got to work,Mennie had a fine return for the game 9/88, Worrall 7/130

    WA set the pace against NSW A century to Bancroft and runs down the order also highlighted NSW lack of penetration by their bowlers. Cowan and Hughes made 69 but a 42 run last wicket stand helped keep them in it. Cartwright with 170 (173 balls) out of 275 put up the target for NSW, Hughes 110 and Cowan 80 got them into a winning position, Henriqiues, 66, kept them in it but Neville, out for 63 in the second last over, just couldn't get them the win.

    Runs
    Vic Harris 667, Dean 532
    SA Cooper 720, Lehmann 677
    WA Cartwright 869, Turner 742
    NSW Cowan 959, Henriques 775
    QLD Burns 724, Labuschagne 626
    Tas Bailey 839, Milenko 517

    Cowan is the leading run scorer with tremendous second half of the season,700 runs in 8 innings with 2 not outs and a duck,
    Cartwright also improved as the season went on, (keep an eye on him), Turner was the surprise of the season more a batsman than a bowler now.
    Bailey had another good year, Burns did well, Cooper had a season of high and low scores while Lehmann was consistent throughout.
    Harris was the leading run scorer before Christmas has averaged low 20's since.

    For the Vics Harris was 10th on the list while Dean is 18th, White 22nd, they had some low scoring games in the second half.
    SA Cooper and Lehmann are 7th and 8th,
    WA Cartwright 2nd, Turner 5th. Well13th, bancroft 16th
    NSW Cowan 1st Henriques 4th Patterson 9th,Neville 12th Hughes 15th, 3 in the top 10
    QLD Burns 6th Labuschagne 11th with Hartley next 17th
    Tas Bailey 3rd Milenko 20th This shows up Tassies poor season, For example, Doolan made a 202no early on, only made 155 runs in 13 other innings.

    Bowling
    Vic Tremain 42, Holland 42
    SA Sayers 54, Richardson 32
    WA Behrendorff 37, Mackin 35
    NSW Someville 37, Copeland 26
    Qld George 28, Feldmann 23
    Tas Milenko 25, Stevenson 22

    Sayer is the leading wicket taker with 54,

    Holland the leading spinner with 42, last year the leading spinner (Ahmed ) took 24, Somerville was NSW's leading wicket taker with 37.
    Spinners Holland (3rd) 42@ 21, Somerville (5th)37@23, Zampa (11th) 27@32, Agar (25th) 16@27- only 4 games

    Overall a better year for the spinners


    SA were missing Mennie and Worrall for several games, Behrendorff for WA and Feldmann for Qld also missed several games.

    VIC Tremain 2nd, Holland 3rd, Boland 8th,Pattinson 18th
    SA Sayers 1st, Richardson 7th, Zampa 11th, Mennie 14th, Worrall 16th
    WA Behrendorff 4th, Mackin 6th, Moody 10th,
    NSW Somerville 5th, Copeland 12th, Bollinger 24th
    Qld George 9th, Feldmann 15th,Wildermuth 19th
    Tas Milenko 13th, Stevenson 17th, Rainbird 20th

    Vic and SA have the leading bowlers and also the depth, NSW, QLD just didn't have any depth to their bowling.
    Tassie poor old Tassie, not one bowler in the top 10, while Milenko had a good year with bat and ball, their bowling wasn;t strong to win games.

    WA had a strong second half to the season and will be the team to watch next year with several players approaching the prime of their careers, while other teams will have players in the veteran class.

He's really dug his career out of the pit this season, finally cementing a spot in a BBL team (partly as an opening bowler ) and taking what was probably his last Sheffield Shield chance as well.

    I'd also like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your updates across the season. They've really made the Shield easier to follow, and kept the thread ticking over even during periods where people's eyes are focused on other cricket. A CW treasure.

    Interesting to see that SA won so convincingly without anyone getting a hundred.

    Good to see Mennie back and taking wickets.

    Mackin hasn't done much since the big B cake back.

    So sad seeing Queensland rolled like that in Hartley's last game (or any game really). Pattinson is a real talent though. He was hitting the pitch hard and looked very nasty to face.

    Yes, thanks Midwinter. They've been great, much appreciated by me also.

    Shame Vics don't get to play their final at home.

    Thanks, glad to hear the posts have been of interest

    Now

    Does anyone know which of either the Duke or the Kookaburra ball will be used in the final ?

    Yeah not sure about that.

    Stoinis heading back to WA with some family issues behind it, so they won't be held up. Be an interesting off-season for Victoria, with Pucovski and Harper having concussion issues.

    A WA XI next year featuring Stoinis, MMarsh, Cartwright, Turner and Agar will not be short on bowling options.

    Also considering how many quality fast-bowling options they have, I would not want to be a WA selector

    Paine been offered a job with Kookaburra, and would move to Victoria for it if he doesn't get a contract.

    Victoria sniffing around Ludeman.

    Victoria has had a similar thing going on at various points over the last couple of seasons, with Stoinis, Christian and Maxwell all batting in the top seven. White bowled lots in one game this season too.

    I've always thought Cartwright would basically end up giving up bowling (he's actually continued to bowl regularly for longer than I expected already, tbh), and with him scoring tons at three and so many other bowling options in their side I think it'll more or less happen next season.
