    Average ODI cricketer to be honest.

    Averages 22 in List A matches, he is far better suited to the longer format.

    Well done to the Vics especially John Hastings. He turned the game around and triggered our collapse.

    CA XI giving the Bulls a scare, but I think they'll probably come up just short.

    I think the problem with the CA XI is that it's a mix of young blokes who by being carted will have their confidence crushed that they can succeed at the highest level, coupled with guys like Cartwright and Bosisto who have been around a few years and proven that they are just not quite good enough to be consistent at this level. Cartwright is on 98 right now, but has done nothing all tournament nor in several cracks for the Warriors and Scorchers.

    Why are these fools playing at NSO?

    Need to share the love around for the batting averages?

    dead rubber game on qld v WA

    WA posted 240, Voges 80 odd

    Khawaja running between wickets pretty poor should have converted a couple of ones into twos.

    QLD 0/4 in the 4th over

    All you James Hopes fans must be devastated he isn't playing

    I don't think he has bowled one ball all series and we are not short of batsman.

    He's had an OK series but not irreplaceable.

    I'm not devastated.

    Cowan, Maddinson, Smith, Henriques, Nevill, Abbott, O'Keeffe, Starc, Sandhu, Hazlewood, Lyon

    I know thats a batsmen short but i would drop one of O'Keeffe or Lyon out for an extra batsmen and starc, sandhu and Hazlewood are 3 if the best seam bowlers in Australian limited overs cricket

    I would drop Lyon as he has not been as good as SOK but the selectors wont.

    I think they need another batsman and not Carters, he is a 4 day player. Plenty of other options.

    From cricinfos website, the only option batting wise to replace Sunshine is Kurtis Paterson from the blues squad (or play carters as batsman) So having said that, id rather play the extra bowler, id go with caylo's side, we should have enough artillery in the bowling, just the batsman need to set an on par score if we bat first, then the title is ours, a lot of our bowlers can score a quick 15-20 anyway

    go the blues

    Abbott at 6 is way too high. I'd have Carters in for Sandhu.

    Twizzle, I know you've got a man crush on SOK, but I don't think you can truly say he's been better than Lyon in this comp. Both have bowled well, and I think having the two of them there is important.

    Like Timbo said, Abbott at 6 is a spot too high. Carters plays as a batsman most of the time (and impressed me in the field v VIC) so will probably come in for Watson. Sandhu or Hazelwood to miss out, maybe Abbott if they think SOK at 7 and Starc at 8 would work

    Personally I'd lean to O'Keeffe but didn't want to say anything because I thought I'd be scorned. I think he has had less opportunity and performed better.
    Also not a fan of Carte, iI'd have Paterson over him but if i had choice of Carter or Lyon,. I'd probably go with Lyon. Abbott at 6 you would hope he would only be there to hit in the last 5-10 overs. Its a big risk but surprisingly NSW are short batsmen

    Moreso that Lyon has never been a decent ODI bowler and SOK offers so much more with his batting. Pretty good rear guard action against the Vics and nearly got us home.

    SA 7 for 217 in the final, about 50 short of where they should be.

    Haze with some amazing figures 2 for 27 off 9 so far, only giving away 1.8 runs an over for his first 8 overs.

    And now Starc with another, 8/218
