So no more domestic 50 over cricket before the World Cup in 9(?) months time.

first honours of the season go to vic who beat tas by 110 runs in 50 over final. vic 274 d tas 164. cam white (88) for vic, gurinder sandhu 7-56 for tas including hatrick and 4 wkts in last over. a very unsatisfactory comp in my opinion. vic only won 2 of 5 group matches (every state qualified for semi finals) and advanced on net run rate by 0.02 over nsw when their qualifying final was a washout. it was a wednesday final at junction oval, starting at 10.30am, not conducive for spectators. maybe cricket aust. spoke to colin graves about scheduling. i am a tas supporter so i am not happy.

last year had 7 teams competing, the extra team being a cricket australia x1(made up of young and promising players). each team played each other once. the top team went straight through to the final(wa who won it) and second and third place had a knockout game to play wa. this year vic finished 4th in round robin winning only 2 games and queensland who only won 1 match beat sa who finished third to win their qualifiying final. which meant you could have lost every round robin game and still lifted the trophy. all in all a pigs breakfast.

although he is unlikely to play due to tas win over qld last week, tasmania have added to their 13 man squad for the shield game at the waca the wonderfully named CHARLIE WAKIM. a 27 year old from nsw, a batsman.

it conjures up some great other cricket names and combinations like

caught fiddling, caught beet b root (once in 1913) and most recently
caught mustard b onions.

sorry, it is a quite day.

In 1991, West Indies enjoyed playing England and feasting on a Lamb Ramparakash for the first four Tests. For the final Test, the menu was changed with Beef replacing Lamb.

How does Chris Tremain not get a gig for Aus? Let alone behind in the queue of Siddle, Doggart & Nesser? 185 wickets @ 23 with a strike rate of 44.9, all whilst bowling the majority of his overs on that highway they've placed through the middle of the MCG.

How did David Hussey average 52 at FC level and never play a test? And the likes of Lambushchange, Finch & Head with averages in the low 30s have test caps?

Why did Hodge get dropped with a test batting average of 56?

Why is Trump President? What is wrong with the world someone wake me up when it is normal.

17 year old leggie, lloyd pope who did well at the under 19 world cup earlier this year became the youngest player to take 7 wickets in a shield innings.

he took 7-87 off 22 overs for sa v qld at adelaide oval. he is 18 years 328 days.
the previous record holder from 1965 was surprisingly doug walters.

already there is talk about putting him in the test series against india.

i hope they just let him play a full season before declaring him the next shane warne.

yet again barely any runs made by batsman, the best being 76 from alex doolan of tas, who also made a century last week.

Australia have seemingly gone all England 1990s and can't play leg-spin.

Pope 22.2-0-87-7
Fawad Ahmed 11.4-4-18-3

According to the cracinfo match report three of Pope's wickets were players unable to pick the googly and the rest:

caught down the leg-side
attempted pull-shot caught at mid-off
sliced cut shot to backward point
hold out at deep midwicket

I saw the wickets a bit earlier. He did get a fair bit of luck with a few of them

young victorian batsman will pucovski (20) is taking an indefinite break from cricket with a mental health related illness.

he made 243 at the waca last week, but did not field for the rest of the match. commentators at the time thought it was strange, as he looked fit and it was not hot.

last season he missed 2 games, with seperate concussion issues. we all wish him well.

on a brighter note, it seems we have some batsman who are capable of batting for a long period of time.(who would have thought).

marcus harris batted all day,(almost unthinkable in the modern age) for 210 not out for victoria. as a form west australian player, i am sure justin langer will have noticed.

tom cooper made 178 for s.a. he only played because callum ferguson pulled out with a calf injury.

Shaun Marsh 80 - pencil him in for at least the next 3 years!

On a more serious note I read that since moving to Victoria for the start of the 2016-17 season, Harris has been the leading run-scorer and century maker in the Shield. It was against a very inexperienced attack (Trent Copeland had played about 10 times as many fc games as the other 5 bowlers used) but batting all day is making a big statement for test selection.

And I hope Pucovski gets well soon.

He doesn't inspire a lot of confidence in me tbh, but runs are runs. Langer gave him a clip on his way out when he left WA to move to Victoria, so you can run a line through his name anyway and he's 'not one of the boys.'

Shaun Marsh doing an Ian Bell (of early, early-mid and late vintages) - looking hapless in the test arena but bullying domestic bowlers when sent back to first class cricket to get some runs.

Whoa Whoa WHOA. Hold the train. Ian Bell made 22 test centuries @42. He is twice the batsman Smarsh is. Do not insult the great Bear.

back in post 902 i said that we had 3 one day games against india this summer.

little did i know, we have 3 pointless one day games against s.a. starting at the new perth stadium on sunday followed by games in adelaide on nov.9 and hobart on nov. 11. i assume they are to make a quick buck or reciprocal.

of course this interferes with a round of shield games starting on saturday.

finch, s marsh, hazlewood, cummins, starc, head and maxwell are some of the players unavailable for 4 day selection.


also our new tv cricket rights deal will start this weekend.
for the first time ever, all mens 50 over and t20 games are only available on pay tv. they will NOT be shown on free to air tv.

the ratings will be very interesting on monday morning.

all test matches will be simulcast on channel 7 and fox sports and most big bash games. fox sports have about 15 exclusive big bash pay tv games.

we all know what happened in england when cricket became hard to find.

this deal was james sutherland final legacy. (lots of money but to what detriment). we shall see.

Over the periods of his career I mention, Bell averaged about 37 and, like SMarsh, was often either being dropped or on the verge of being dropped. His career average is inflated thanks to a 20-month purple patch in 2009-11 when he averaged around 70.

Like SMarsh, Bell also averaged in single figures on a tour to the UAE.
