    Awesome batting display, disappointed with the bowling though despite winning. 2 dropped catches as well

    The Squad is
    Neil Pickup (CW Black) (Captain)
    Ash Chaulk (CW Black) (Wicketkeeper)
    Ben Read (CW Green) (Wicketkeeper)
    Nick Scott (CW Green)
    James Stedman (CW Black)
    Rob Dauth (CW Red)
    Sean Fuller (CW Blue)
    Chris Butler (CW Colts)
    Martyn Corrin (CW Green)
    Liam Camps (CW Blue)
    Kingsley Clapham (CW Red)
    Nath Patrick (CW Black)
    Matt Smith (CW Black)
    Devo. Still, can't argue given the performance in the ODI.

    Very happy with my test series and pleased to bring up the 100 games. Quality series all round from CW, owned them. Even Smith hit some ****ing runs.

    Haha, awesome stuff. I was awful with the ball and never got a bat - I'm used to waiting while Scott & Read slay the bowlers, just there were a couple of other people doing the same this time round as well

    Well done everyone!

    Not sure if this the Australian Rugby League or CW Cricket. Side picked purely on domestic performances. Though can't argue with the results.

    Well what are we supposed to pick the teams on?

    Physical Attractiveness, although then you'd end up with an all CW Black side with Liam carrying the drinks.

    Thats probably why every member of the squad from the NZ series was retained except for Cloete, Gough (who would have been picked if not for retirement) and Crampton (who was replaced by Chaulk who would have been in front of him for NZ if he was signed in at the time).

    Come up with a valid argument for Read or Chaulk not being picked and we'll talk.

    Who ever said you needed only two keepers in the squad. If three are good enough to make the side as batsmen, then pick three. Not sure how you justify not selecting two batsmen who average over 40 plus in ODI cricket, regardless of average/poor domestic form.

    Was more questioning Dauth selection ahead of Crampton and/or Cloete. Some who averages in low 30s, with a s/r of 65 after 40 odd ODIs.

    If there was some sort of requirement to only have two keepers, then you would have through Crampton previous ODI performances would have some weighting. Read only made the squad in the first place due to an injury to Butler or Cloete. You would have thought he would have to wait for another chance once others failed at ODI level.

    Just doesn't seem like there was much weighting if any placed on previous ODI performances. Cloete and Crampton should be one of first guys picked. But I guess that just my opinion.
