They aint the problem, its the fact that SA have 0 batsmen in their side capable of tearing a team apart and all their bowlers are better batsmen than bowlers

Besides who else have they got?

There are some very weak sides this year

SA as always

The QLD retirement home XI will struggle to get on the park so these players that for years have been on the fringe have to come in and will take time

Tassie look like a team that won their premiership and will return to mediocrity

WA have never had any bowlers and rely on their batsmen to bat teams out of the game, but with a couple missing and 2 players choking when on the brink of International selection they could battle for the spoon

Leaves the Vics and NSW to battle it out, I'll be happy with that, we always smash them in recent years

Had to laugh when I read this, I must admit.

Maybe we should do what Victoria did and import some decent batsmen from interstate. Beats getting them from the other state we normally bring them in from...

Worcester fans must certainly be wondering why Bollinger's figures over here were so disappointing. Hat-trick today, 4 in 4 denied only by a dropped catch, match figures of 7-56 at the moment

We imported 1 batsman from Interstate, not batsmen

Easy wins to Victoria and NSW today

Vics rolled SA for just 77 and the fat ******* is facing 2 counts of dissent for whingeing about both his dismissals

Geez - now I see why C5 is pushing so hard for Hodge to stay in the Australian team. Certainly wouldn't want him back for Victoria.

Very much looking forward to having Hodgey back, but we might lose Hussey if they dump Hodge, but they dont usually sack players based on 1 bad series

Besides his 6 innings in this series werent quite as bad as Pontings last 6 innings in Tests in India Didnt see him dropped

Not a great start for my local team WA, losing outright to NSW. The Warriors, or maybe that should be the Worriers after that woeful performance, turned in an absolute shocker. I thought with Tom Moody taking over as coach WA would be frontrunners this season but it doesn't look good for them so far.

You shouldnt worry, you have taken over NSW as getting the game v the Vics when all international players are available next week

Should be another high scoring 1st innings result on match

Doesn't look too good for SA when Dizzy Gillespie is their best batsmen. Mind you he would probably be WA's best batsmen at the moment too with the way they are going.

They're better batsmen than their batsmen too. Dizzy top scored in both innings for SA

Glamorgan. Watching both teams trying to out-collapse the other might be fun, but the cricket would be horrible. SA would probably win if they had Lehmann and Tait back, though not sure who Elliott would represent.

For the spectators maybe we could make it a 4 day, 360 over match and the winner is the ones with the highest runs per wicket for the game so we might end up with 9 or 10 completed innings at the end

Elliott should probably toss a coin as he is the best batsman for both sides

After his collossal loss of form last year, I'd have to disagree. Also, if it's being played in England, Lehmann turns into a bit of a god compared to the rest.
