    Would love to see how often Dinnen plays if there's no 6th team.

    Yeah, because if there's anything that will tip things in favour of a 6th team, it'll be an endorsement from some rookie.

    Adds weight, eh.

    Weight against it imo.

    6th Team Will be Average at Best

    It's a scientifically proven fact, adding teams does not mean better cricket", says local guru and Grade cricket basher John Heads.

    "Though to be fair the teams are **** already so personally I'm all for it."

    This shocking revelation comes amid a flock of other cries for a 6th team, John was criticized heavily for 'jumping on the bandwagon' and not really making much 'sense' in his argument. If anything's for sure, there's bound to be a lot more 'bandwagon jumping' in days to come.
    Direbirds FTW!

    To draw another Bangladesh parallel, they'll still be better than Yellow

    I heard that the 6th Team is a given and that the CWLand Cricket Board are investigating a 7th Franchise, to be based on the Australian Gold Coast.

    You heard it here first. CW Cricket live from Carrara.

    Leaves the selection team with an interesting dilemma. Do they debut a new opener i.e. Gray or Bosco, or do they return Pete to open and bring back Dauth, or maybe even debut Garven?

    S Young would be in front of Fitzsimmons, easily. Gray would be pretty lucky, one godly season after years of mediocrity. Still, is an issue.

    Wasn't the batting that let us down vs Australia, though.
    Captain for the Blues.

    Code:
    FC : 129 matches
    281 runs @ 1.76
    650 wickets @ 28.86, S/R of 41.75

    39 5-wicket innings, 7 10-wicket matches.
    
    Test : 12 matches
    8 runs @ 0.62
    68 wickets @ 27.99, S/R of 40.22
    Best Bowling of 5 for 59
    4 5-wicket innings, 0 10-wicket matches.

    Lets just say there is quite a few batsmen with more runs on the board then when Thamba made his debut after his first season. Also Gray had 2-3 good seasons in a row, it just the last one was really dominate.

    Blackman also the incumbent.

    Still means he is next in line. Got a far better record then any other option outside Dauth.

    Wouldn't say easily. While Bosco did tail off he also had a good start to his career last season, and has played U-19 and A iirc. Hazy on the U-19 and A part

    That's a bit one eyed isn't it? I could be mistaken but I'm farily sure Young was a S13 rookie. So in that time frame Gray played 39 matches and Young 40:

    J Gray:
    S13 1181 @ 31.12
    S14 1934 @ 52.27

    S Young:
    S13 1248 @ 33.73
    S14 1877 @ 52.14
