    A specialist means that you're not good in the other form, Jaso, not merely worse. Otherwise everyone in the Dev League would be a specialist. You'll get the hang of it, I'm sure. Also, I'd say the only reason you think you're worse in the shorter form is because you don't face as many balls, since there are limited overs.
    REMEMBER: A couple of years in therapy, you'll get over it.

    There, there... I think we might need to rent out an extra room for the tour

    You're right. I better talk to both Colts & U-19 selectors and get you dropped immediately... Scoring centuries and averaging over 50 this season just not good enough, apparently.

    Just quietly.. apparently everyone gets their own choice of a 'naughty' movie channel in the hotel. Trav chose Lifestyle Food. Jasotharan chose the Biography channel. His Biography channel. Make of it what you will.

    going back to the debate....

    I got the impression that those people who were in the full international side or in contention for it weren't going to be picked for the U-19s?

    Check the last posts of the stickied thread in this forum and you'll find that question answered by Liam as follows...

There will be some instances where U-19 players in the senior side will be allowed to play age level international cricket ahead of CW XI representation, if the CWBCC sees it to be more beneficial to the player to do so.

    So you propose we send 2nd string sides on international tours. I know NZ's form hasn't been that good, losing to Nepal and everything, but we should respect them enough to send full strength sides. Also guys like Hancock will learn a lot more from playing with Cunningham, Wilson and Thompson then being the number one all rounder like he is for the Colts.

    Bangladesh? CWLand is a very young nation with a very small player pool.

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."

Henriques played for NSW in the ING Cup final just after the WC, and played for them before it as well.

    Players who were international players would obviously not be called up to play U-19 cricket, but representative junior cricket certainly takes priority over dev league stuff.

    So how come the likes of Flintoff, Ben Hollioake etc were left out of England home U19 games then?
