Australian Domestic Comp

Looks like I get to restart the thread covering the domestic cricket in Australia... even though the season is almost finished.

The 4-day match between Western Australia and Victoria is half over, with the off-spinner Aaron Heal spinning WA into a strong position. Heal was not able to consistently break into the WA side last season, behind both Hogg and Casson in the pecking order. With Casson leaving for NSW, Heal has finally gotten a chance and has taken 16 wickets at 26 this year in the Pura Cup.

Victoria won the toss and elected to field, and WA notched up 8/372 dec, Langer scoring a century and North and Bandy both contributing half-centuries. Harwood, White, Siddle (who the hell is this guy) and Pattinson all taking 2 wickets. Mick Lewis has been dropped from the side.

In response, Victoria has limped to 5/192, D.Hussey and Jewell both making half-centuries. Heal was the destroyer taking 3 wickets for 35 runs off his 15 overs.

Tasmania are in a strong position in their match against South Australia, easily taking first innings points and looking highly likely to win the match tomorrow (day 3). Winning the toss and electing to bat, South Australia was bowled out for 139 with Lehmann top scoring on 34. Butterworth was (statistically) the best of the bowlers, cleaning up the last 3 wickets to finish with 4 wickets. Krejza (NSW spinner forced to move to Tasmania to play State cricket) took 2 wickets and conceding only 8 runs. Brendan Drew (young prospect who tries to bowl like McGrath) also took 2 wickets.

In reply, Tasmania was bowled out for 337, Birt notching up a ton and Divenuto and Dighton both scoring half-centuries. Cosgrove was (statistically) the best of the bowlers cleaning up the last 3 wickets, Cullen and Rofe both took 2 wickets each.

The second day couldn't have ended worse for South Australia, losing 2 wickets for 53 in their second innings. South Australia need another 145 runs to force Tasmania to bat again.

The 4 day match between NSW and Qld is half-way over, with Bichel and Kasprowicz pulling out for Qld, and Johnson and Watson on national duty. All of NSW pace bowlers are on national duty, or injured. So, it looks like the batsmen will have a field day.

The pitch was suppose to be a roaring turner, but I think that has been a little exaggerated.

NSW won the toss and elected to bat.

After one and a half days of carnage, NSW declared at 4/613, Jaques and Thornley both scoring tons and Katich 205 not out.

Queensland in return has blasted to 2/168. Boring match this one because both sides have no bowlers.

If you're asking who's leading the comp, it's NSW. Well, it was NSW before this round started.

NSW-26 points
Tas-26
Vic-24
WA-22
Qld-20
SA-6

Or something like that. Close finish.

It's not the result Q/L need. Hopefully, it'll end up a draw and then hell can be unleashed on the Victorians.

Updates on the first-class matches being played in Australia.

Tasmania has beaten South Australia by 8 wickets to temporarily move 4 points clear at the top of the table. Trailing by 197 runs after the first innings, South Australia was bowled out for 269 and Tasmania easily made the 72 runs needed for victory. Points of interest, Adcock(59) was the only batsman for SA to make 50, Hilfenhaus (legend!) took 4 wickets in the second innings and remains the leading wicket taker in the Pura Cup competition, Cullen took both of Tasmania's second inning wickets.

Western Australia look likely to beat Victoria in their Pura Cup match. After declaring for 372, Western Australia then bowled out Victoria for 298 to claim first innings points. MacDonald, Hussey and Jewell all made 50's, while Heal and Maclaughlan both took 4 wickets for WA.

WA then declared, for the second time in the match at 271/7, Langer and Rogers the only batsmen making significant contributions of 99 and 75 respectively, while the all-rounder MacDonald took 3 wickets with the ball (seems to be having a great match).

Victoria are 29/3 in their second innings run-chase, and need a further 317 runs today for victory.

Queensland, realising they need an outright win to stand any chance of making the finals have declared at 8-464, 149 runs behind the NSW first innings total. They are looking for a sporting declaration from NSW on the final day. NSW look like they are going to oblige, spending the morning session piling on quick runs. They are 3-208, which is an overall lead of over 350. I'll be expecting a declaration around lunch, unless they are complete *******s and decide to bat all day .

Close for Queensland but no cigar!

Ryan Broad got 111, Mjaer 87. And MacGill showed for NSW why he's an automatic test selection for Australia.

That's the end of the Pura Cup road for the Bulls. The final just won't be the same.

QLD's season over leaving 3 teams to fight it out to play Tasmania in the final

NSW win outright they host Tassie, if they dont then they require neither Victoria or WA to win outright

If Victoria win outright and NSW dont then they head to Tassie for the final

If WA win outright and neither NSW or Victoria win outright then WA head south to meet Tassie

I dont like our chances, although hopefully playing a QLD 2nd XI Next best case scenario would be NSW to win outright and annihilate Tassie on the flattest SCG surface ever

I think NSW must be clear favourites now, even though half their team is playing in the Caribbean.

The Victorians might still come a cropper against Queensland.

The NSW first XI is either in the Caribbean or injured. Aside from Clark, Haddin, Clarke, Mcgrath, and Bracken, Lee, Nicholson and Katich are unavailable. Though NSW are holding out Tasmania's chase for full 6 points, there's something to bowl to 150 runs at least, and if SA hold out the Warriors, we'll see a replay of this match in Bellerive in the final

Tasmania have made it through the final on the virtue of "least international representatives".

I think Tasmania have tied with South Australia for that honor.
Tassie - Ricky Ponting
South Australia - Shaun Tait

Andrew MacDonald (25), former under-19 Australian cricketer who has just returned after a horror run with injuries, has just become the 4th player in the history of Australia's Pura Cup/Sheffield Shield to score 750 runs and take 25 wickets. MacDonald took 29 wickets at 30 with the ball and scored 750 at 58 with the bat .

In other news, Western Australia and Victoria both lost meaning that NSW and Tassie will meet in the final.

Hmm... though Ponting hasn't really played a Tasmania game or two in ages. He's played one Pura Cup and ING game this season, and not many more in 2005-6.

NSW had just the better of the first say, with Tasmania on 283 for 7.
