Australian Domestic Season 2018/19

SeamUp

Surely they'd play an extra batsman? Maybe they just don't have any I dunno but 5 (or 4) specialist bowlers and 4 (or 5) all-rounders is a bit of overkill surely
Definitely a possibility. I did think if they had another batsmen in the squad it would be a formality but with it being Wells I don't think it is. They may also choose to get Green into bowling but not full 10 overs. I read an article about his winter at the academy and his time injured and he said he focused on his batting to take it to the next level. Time will only tell but he looked decent in that Shield knock of his.

Haven't really seen enough of Green's batting to make a solid judgement either way. Certainly rate him with the ball though.

I think the final will be two of Victoria Western Australia and South Australia.

Infra club trial at Old Kings today. So it begins.

Burgeinho a mixture of excitement and trepidation as Benny Martin is playing. He’s hoping they’re on the same team so he can keep to him rather than on the opposite side so he has to face him. Copperfield a merciful absentee.

Weird decision to not launch the new cricket on fox spoets today when the tournament actually starts. With no football today, it would have got a decent audience I bet.

The season begins, Stanlake has already brained his first batsman and is making White look amateurish

White looking very ordinary. Maybe he's finally lost it. Not moving his feet, playing and missing at everything.

Yeah like I think I've said before, if they decided to clean house and get rid of both I could've understood.. or alternatively if they said they were both still amongst the best bats in the state I could've understood.. or even if they axed Larkin and kept MadDog, I could see the logic in that too. But there's just no real argument for what they've done. And I say that as someone who actually likes Larkin.

Maxwell should not bat any lower than 4 in any short format and probably should be opening for the Vics

Maddinson at no. 6 is pretty damn handy for the Vics tho

And where's Christian? He's still a quality player. Injured or retired or omitted or moved states again?

Well Victoria didn't offer him a contract. That doesn't mean they couldn't call him up (I don't think Maddinson actually has a contract either) but I'm not sure if he stayed in Victoria or moved somewhere else. He still has a BBL contract with the Renegades but he's not even permanently based in Australia anymore so no guarantee he was even available for this tournament once they didn't contract him.

Disappointing. He would have added a lot to the tournament
