    Kicks off within a week Oct 26th

    Comp is into two parts

    Oct 26- Dec 3
    then
    Feb 8 - March 14

    FINAL is on March 23rd 2018

    I remember when the poms beat us in the ashes back in 2011/12. We had just got spanked in India, got home and decided we needed a 19 man squad for the first test. We picked 3 spinners Hauritz, Beer and Doherty in that squad. I knew then and there not only was the preparation piss poor, but WTF which home nation picks a squad of 19 with the 1st test a week and a half away!!!! The signs and signals were obvious. Who can remember Doug Bollinger being picked for Adelaide with hardly any proper preparation, was struggling to get over 125k/m. The highlight of the series for mine was Peter "the magnificent" Siddles hatrick in the 1st test which ended in a draw. We got clouted 3-1 thereafter

    Now today, I like to think we will be far better prepared (most test players will have 2-3 of these Shield games behind them) but more importantly we pick a squad of 12 worthy of the baggy green. For mine the No 6 and No 7 spots are up for grabs


    Blues play SA in Adelaide on Oct 27 a D/N game
    Their 2nd hit out is at Hurstville oval vs WA


    The full draw

    Why change a system that worked for so long???

    i didn't have a problem getting rid of first innings point; there has been a lot less draws in recent years. 6 points for a win, 1 point for a draw is fine. these bonus points is f**king convoluted. nsw have missed the final in a few recent seasons even though they've had the best win-draw-loss record.

    Sheffield Shield points system
    Outright win: 6 points (no change)

    Draw: 1 point (previously 0)

    1st innings win: 0 points (previously 2)

    Bonus batting

    First 100 overs: .01 for every run above 200

    Example: 350 runs in the first 100 overs = 1.5 points. Batting points are uncapped until 100 overs



    Bonus bowling

    First 100 overs: 0.5 points awarded at fall of fifth wicket, seventh wicket and ninth wicket

    Example: 8 wickets in first 100 overs = 1 point. Bowling points capped at 1.5

    After first 100 overs, no further bonus points available to either team

    How Hurstville qualifies for any form of State cricket I'll never know.
    The ground is ridiculously small. Defensive shots fly out of the ground and land on Dora street.
    Drummoyne would have been a far better option if the SCG was unavailable.

    My U10s have a 40m boundary from the batter's stumps.

    I'd hazard a guess it's larger than Hurstville.

    What would be third slip at most grounds is close enough to the fence to be third man at Hurstville.

    The velodrome makes Hurstville a shit ground for watching games too.

    I think they brought the point system in to try to double crowds. From 150 to 300.

    I was there for the CAXI ODDI the other week.

    Horrendous.

    This would have a larger circumference:

    After that CAXI vs NZ tour match that got cancelled, Blacktown has got a bad reputation. Blacklisted for the moment.

    Apparently it's been voted best Sydney Grade Cricket ground 3 years in a row. I was wondering how this is possible then realised it's voted on by Umpires. They probably just like it because the boundaries are so close they have a clear view of them from where they stand in the middle.

    Fairfield Liverpool Rosedale Oval is better.
