    Brad Hodge WILL play for Australia in the next calender year

    He would seriously have to if he keeps up his season form at the moment...

    BJ Hodge 5 9 1 793 240 99.12 4 0 1 0

    Fairly handy record, shows how he has matured over the last couple of years.

    If he doesn't play at least a couple of ODI's I will go hee, especially since he is CA contracted now.

    Thoughts?

    He very well could, I believe he is of International Quality. Certainly better than many cricketers in the past.

    He might have a chance if Lehman retires soon (which I have heard he has hinted at)

    I'm not too dissimilar a batsman to Bradman.
    Both of us have batting averages below 100.

    Eddie has a complex about Brad *Cheaty* Hodge who I think I'm right in saying took a catch on the boundary against his beloved Derbyshire and trod on the rope and didn't say anything to the umpires and the catch stood.

    Am I right Eddie?

    It's not a complex on my part at all - he's the one who's just a dirty piece of cheating filth.

    Of course it's not serious - it stems from the days when I used to write the Devil Ducky column, taking the rise out of everyone and everything in cricket, especially those who took themselves too seriously.

    It (the 'Cheaty-Hodge' thing) was more taking the mickey out of Dominic Cork. Don't just take my word for it (hell, no-one does anyway) - go back through the DD archives. The monicker 'Brad Cheaty-Hodge' stuck at the time, a bit like 'Steve Wayward-Harmison' and 'Inzamam Fat-git-who-ate-all-the-balti ul-Haq'.

    sounds like a typical victorian


    i dont think Hodge will play for Australia in the next 12 months, considering Hussey played and ODI last year and Katich is also an excellent OD batsman... he will go close, but i dont think that he will quite get there...

    Depend's if a spot becomes available or not.

    I could see him getting a crack in the ODI team, whether he will or not, I do not know.

    Well, it looks like his best chance of playing (tests) has just passed him by. If Elliot plays well then he will find it even harder to grab a spot, even as a quick fit replacement.

    Atm there are at least three men ahead ohf him in the race for a test spot.


    Plundering county attacks wont mean anything if he dosent back it up in the Pura Cup , the selectors have shown recently in picking Elliott & Lehmann that volume of runs comes before age.

    If he has an outstanding Pura Cup season and a spot comes up then he's every chance of grabbing it , however I personally dont like his chances.
