    Patrick seems to be going backwards.

    If anyone wants to contribute to anything, feel free. This team is a lot more about you than it is about me, so please chime in. I know Tozz, Jakester, Smith and Borcich have helped a brother out, with varying results.

    Get Mitchell up the order IMO. Wasted down where he is.

    Houston...

    Okay, so when ICC told me to select 15 players for 'the One Day Series', it meant 'the One Day Series and, oh, The Freaking Ashes'. Pretty sure, anyhow.

    Let's find out together.

    Brilliant.

    The above post that is.

    Results have not been quite so good. I've been disappointed by my own wicket haul - certainly was hoping to take a few more in those games than I managed. Still, onwards and upwards.

    Combined Univs vs Australia
    Three Day Friendly

    Australian XI -
    Nick Scott
    John Heads
    Kyle Wright
    Kevin Gough
    Jamee Gray
    Neil Pickup (wk)
    Higgy Marks
    Ryan Dunn
    Nathan Patrick (capt)
    Kieran Horton
    Heath Davis

    Coach's Call -
    It's basically a chance to find out, if the scheduling/squad issue is the case, who will make the last Test Match places that are available. This match stands to be a vital point in some player's careers.

    Happy to be number 1, consistent runs are flowing from the bat and keeping us in a lot of matches.


    Also, if you are going to bowl me, you should wait until after at least 15-20 overs and all the frontline paceman have had a bowl first.

    Australia solid enough in victory

    Enough positive signs have been shown by an understrength Australian Team in this friendly encounter. Plenty of the bowlers showed some form, Pickup won the battle of the wicket-keepers and John Heads was superb in his innings of 175.















    Coach's Call -
    Heads, WAG. But seriously, I don't want this squad for The Ashes.

    The Ashes 2005 - First Test

    In all probability, we're about to get romped. But which XI would you choose for Australia to give us the best chance in the First Test? The pitch looks very poor for pace with slight turn for spin bowlers.

    John Heads - 12 matches, 622 runs @ 34.56
    Greg Thomas - 119 matches, 9030 runs @ 51.31

    Mat Mitchell - 48 matches, 3065 runs @ 37.84
    Kyle Wright - 4 matches, 247 runs @ 49.40
    Nick Scott - 40 matches, 3263 runs @ 47.98

    Wicket Keepers
    Neil Pickup - 4 matches, 234 runs @ 78.00, 12 dismissals
    Jamee Gray - 49 matches, 2502 runs @ 32.92, 139 dismissals

    All Rounders
    Kevin Gough - 19 matches, 755 runs @ 24.35, 24 wickets @ 61.83
    Higgy Marks - 39 matches, 1917 runs @ 31.95, 33 wickets @ 55.42

    So would've Smith, Luff, Fitzsimmons, Cunningham and yourself.

    But yes, the spin department leaves a lot to be desired. Dunn or McNamara would've been a chance aswell as Quinn. Need either or some of Marks, Thomas and Mitchell to step up something big.

    Less than stellar ODI debut but more than happy for the free trip to visit relatives and carry drinks.

    Nice to get a run against Combind Unis. Disappointed with the jug avoidance with getting runout in the 80s.

    Find that one rather amusing, Nafan. Sorry. Would pick as much batting as possible and look to bat and bat and bat England-style and bore the crap out of everyone else.
