Bushrangers are gone here. Hodge going was the death of them.
I should have taken my pillow. Tasmania bowled exceptionally well. I got there late and couldn't believe Maher & Love were already back in the pavillion and then to make matters worse the 2nd ball I saw Hayden gets out!Great Birtannia said:Qld 190
Good day for Queensland, huh?
Bevan is about the only Tigers batsman that is any good in the one dayers, most are much better in the four day stuff. Cue disastrous collapse tomorrow.
Looks like the Vics are doing there best to push the case of national selection for Hussey, Hodge and White without thinking what is best for the team.Great Birtannia said:Vics batting line up was a bit of an eyebrow raiser with Hodge opening and Cam White at #3. Dave Hussey bowling 8 overs when you select 7 other bowling options is different as well although he did a good job. Voges is starting to put his hand up for national selection post Martyn as well.
Tassie have had a good batting line up for a while now, albeit prone to horrendous collapses, but they've never really had the bowling attack to take 20 wickets in a match. Griffith and Hilfenhaus are now a dangerous opening pair, Drew and Geeves are reasonable back up, and they are still yet to add Damien Wright who missed the whole of last season with injury to the attack. Maher and his 'sleeping giants' comment was a little overboard but I think they will go well this season and be in with a shot at making the Pura Cup final at least. They fell just short after decimating Queensland late last year in a season that was killed by injury.Clapo said:The Tassy line-up is not to be under-estimated this season
Yeah he played in the Top 4 his whole career in ODs and bats at 6 in FC, but could bat higher if NSW wanted. Been one of our best batsmen the last couple years, just behind Jaques.Perm said:Brad Haddin batting at 4 for NSW, is he that good? Or just a handy aggressive batsman?
Great Birtannia said:Jaques, Simmons, Christian, +Haddin, Thornely, Cowan, O'Brien, Henriques, Nicholson, Hauritz, Bollinger.
That is one ordinary looking side, especially the bowling attack. Henriques should get plenty of game time this year at least.
Yeah Bailey taking a bit of smashing, but i guess he got the wicket of Haddin. Not looking forward to watching Haurtiz bowling looking at how ineffective Bailey is, lets hope a season of grade cricket in QLD has improved him as a batsmen.age_master said:Christian opens up and knocked Bailey for 3 6's in the over.
