Cricket Australia contracts for Next Season?

They usually hand them out in March,probably just after the WC final.Cummins will get 1 for NSW don't see any Blues getting 1 unless Sandhu gets 1.Usually contracts between 17-20,wish they'd go back to 25.

I notice another Cachopa playing in Sussex leagues,wouldn't be surprised if they give him a go in the 2nds and if he is any good they give him a contract.

Better sign the whole country up in case England feels like Kolpakking anyone.
Thats not flawed logic.Altho there is a limit on who the country signs,its not if we cannot afford it.Call them development contracts.

Big call as I'm pretty sure Clarke, Smith, Warner, Starc and Lyon will get one.

If CA do give out 20 contracts, the final 2 spots gets difficult to decide. I would like to think Siddle would be there, but on the fringe of the Test team might not be enough as he is going to be well down in ODI and T20 rankings - the same applies for Peter Nevill.

James Pattinson, Ashton Agar (wrongly), Matthew Wade, Adam Voges (1200+@100+ deserves more cash), Fawad Ahmed (leading wicket-taker currently) and Nathan Coulter-Nile could be fighting it out for those last few spots.

Nev won't get 1,Sandhu maybe not, definitely Hazelwood,Thats 2 contracts NSW don't have 2 offer state contracts.

Voges a decent shout out.

I'd love to see him get a test call up.

My understanding contracts are given out on rankings,thats why Phil Hughes got 1 when he didn't deserve it.The rankings are based on internationals played over a 12 month period.

If they think Rogers is gonna retire after the Ashes he might not get a contract. I don't think Burns will get one, considering the Cowan and Doolan precedents. So you can apply that to Siddle, Agar etc

then again, new selection panel and what not

Ok come up with the squad i think the selectors will pick.
M Clarke,S Smith,M Johnson,D Warner,M Starc,B Haddin,J Hazelwood,C Rogers,G Maxwell,S Watson,J Faulkner,A Finch,M Marsh,P Cummins,J Burns,S Marsh,N Lyon,R Harris.
Probably be announced shortly after World Cup final.Expect Steve Smith to be made one day captain,thus why I believe George Bailey won't get a contract. Siddle and Patto miss out for mine.Unlucky would be Nevil and/or Wade.But 17/18 is the ammount of contracts handed out nowadays.
