    I'll take Cameron White since he seems to be the only leggie there.

    Will Quinn's the name.

    Are the sides going to be selected on a rotational basis or by who is in form?

    If the latter, make sure anyone who isn't playing in the First XI gets a go in all the tour matches.

    First up, there are stacks of people signed up, which means some people won't even make tours. These people will have their stats kept track of and posted upon request.

    The primary aim as I said in the OP is to win. I want the best XI in the side. Again though, most if not all players with a really high skill level are not available, making us all on a really even skill level.

    In other words, expect a lot of shuffling around while we figure out who will be representing Australia/Nixonia.

    There will of course also be a weighting to people who are active in the thread.

    Australia's struggle commences

    Australia's toothless bowling has lead to their first defeat as a reformed side. Mawk, McDonald, Quinn and Patrick fought hard, but when Greg Thomas dropped Mongia off the bowling of Patrick early on, the game was as good as over.









    Coach's Call -
    "Pretty horrible start that. The deck was pretty slow and hard to get in on. Our bowlers really should've done better. McNamara, Smith and Somerset were pretty damn hopeless. Reddapalli kept really well and we'll fix up his first name. Next match is a 20/20 against the Poms. Expect some changes."

    Changes ring for 20/20

    Just like a typical Australian side, players have been rotated for the hit and giggle against the Poms. I mean, what could possibly go wrong?


    20/20
    England vs Australia

    Australian Team
    Robert Cribb
    John Heads
    James Stedman
    Daniel Smith (capt)
    Kyle Wright
    Manjunath Reddlapalli (wk)
    Neil Pickup
    Bryce Cunningham
    Ryan Dunn
    Jack McNamara
    Heath Davis

    Australia lose the toss and will bat.

    Live sim starts now. <-------- Haha, it's going really well. Tune in on MSN.
