    so assuming we get the full 105 overs tomorrow how would you play this.

    For me on this surface even the 320 odd lead is insurmountable and I still think Smith would want to go for the win. I'd say NSW will throw the bat for 10 odd overs and then send WA in, give WA a chance and no doubt they will throw the bat leading to the possibly get a result rather then the expected draw.

    This, it is always great to win but it's not our fault about the weather. The Shield is all that matters.

    Maybe bowl for 40/50ish overs and try to force a result.

    By then WA will be chasing something fairly impossible.

    Wouldn't care if Smiffy bats all day though

    Congrats to NSW..

    Nice to see my boys the Redbacks showing consistency with another monumental choke..

    I see the irony in both them & Seth Efrika being SA..

    Quite appropriate really..

    Bang, good performance. Hazlewood, Moises and Smithy all really stood up in that game, were the difference in the end (Mitch Marsh also did well).
