I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    I think it'll be a very tough tour for the XI, but I think we'll put up a good fight. I expect Cloete to get amongst the runs and the duo of Kennett and Hoy (if both play) to trouble the Australian batsmen. Beyond that, I can see Moerk playing a Rudolph-esque innings to guide us to a draw

    I think we may see Champs or Robbins return to starting XI at the expense of Colts Captain Kyle Wright. Blackman to make his first Test tour as the reserve batsmen.

    Wow this going to be massive, who ever thought i might get a chance to play Australia. Hopefully i can make the squad and final XI, and help contribute to some competitive results. Its going to be tough for us to get a win, but if we can it could as big as te series win over Sri Lanka, maybe even bigger.

    CW XI in Australia....

    Predictions:

    *WACA to sack pitch curator Cam Sutherland after producing (yet another) sub-standard slow pitch.
    *Alex Feeney to make the ODI squad.
    *Kyle Wright's Test career over.
    *Goff to excel against the Australian attack
    *Hoy to lose $12,464 at the Gloucester Park trots after a bad tip off saw him back number 8 - Debt Propelled in the 5th.
    eep.

    Looks good, hope the top guns can give a good account of themselves against the Aussies and prove we mean business.

    I cant see big changes to the side happening, although everyone that has posted has said atleast 1 or two changes will occur already. I think we will put in a good fight just have to see waht the results are like. The squad will be a huge thnig though, so muhc competition know.

    Very confident of a good showing in this tour... We have started to really improve in Test cricket and i think we can really give the Aussies a shake..

    the most important thing for me, is that we continue the improving form that we have displayed in the past. and also develop that killer instinct, which we missed in the carribean

    This will be interesting, what with pressure on the current players by Greg Thomas and Rob Dauth. Should be a great series.

    Speaking of tests...

    Noteworthy statistics.

    I would admittadly be incredibly disappointed if Thomas or Hancock weren't in the mix, after both of them have had two incredible seasons where they have often won games that even I admit the Colts really shouldn't have won, given the positions we were in. Which one to go for would probably depend on whether you want to sacrifice a bit of batting for a bit of bowling.

    Kyle has also had a great season, though, so it will be interesting to see which of the Colts bowlers will be in the test side (I'm guessing that at least one will). Maybe all three. Can't see Pickup, Kennett or Hoy going out of the attack, though. Camps will stay in the side for his batting alone, I would imagine, and obviously can be a 5th bowler because of that. I think Butler said it right when he pointed out the need for a killer instinct, and that's something that we've always had going for us at Colts when it comes to bowling. Taking wickets is Thomas' specialty - no first-team-regular in the Dev League was close to him in that regard (the closest being Hancock, then Kennett). Have to say I think most of the batsmen are safe for now, however there is definitely pressure on a couple of them.

    H M&#248;rk
    T Mamesh
    AP Cloete
    BJ Goff
    CR Butler
    DA Kearsley
    LA Camps
    NS Hoy
    GM Thomas
    DM Kennett
    NS Pickup

    That would probably be the side I'd like to see being played (not sure on some batting positions). NR Hancock, MW Wilson, DP Richards, A Blackman, SG Fitzsimmons, PE Young, KS Wright are the other players I imagine would be in with a good shout for the squad, too.
    REMEMBER: A couple of years in therapy, you'll get over it.
