    Feb 3-6 NSW v WA

    is actually been played in NZ, Ahead of the test series. As many as 7 or 8 test players will play in this game as a warm up (Voges, Marsh, Johnson, Starc, Hazlewood, Warner, Smith, Lyon)

    Chappell Hadlee One dayers are on 3rd feb and 6th feb, so we are gonna be under strength there.

    That's what the kiwis get for reducing the test series to a 2 tests I guess. Be interesting what kind of deck is prepared for the Shield game

    Travis Dean from Vic made a ton in each innings on debut for the Vics, decent effort

    Good warm up for the first test from MMarsh with 5 wickets and a 50 for WA.

    Pink ball looked good. Looking forward to seeing it in person.

    On a side note, as much as they crapped on at times, I didn't mind the SA commentators. Now to get every other state on board for the idea. I'll put my hand up to do NSW games

    Putting enormous pressure on the Aussie selectors for a test recall..

    Game abandoned at the SCG. Terrible. Run ups, edge of square particular areas of concern, ground not fit for play.

    I know its been raining here a lot but to produce a dangerous sandy field is a bit of a worry

    Blaming the AFL is a cop out. AFL has been played there for 30 years or however long the Swans have been in Sydney (don't know and don't really care). Yet this is the first time something like this has happened. If it actually was due to the AFL then we would also see problems at the Gabba and MCG. Groundskeepers have just done a shit job and the weather probably didn't help them

    Hey, just saying what the bloke on ABC was saying, and they are very pro-AFL on that station, so all I was jesting was that a bloke on ABC blaming AFL for the state of the SCG might find himself unemployed.

    Hads just hit a tone on debut for the Comets in the futures league.

    Not really sure why they call it the futures league, they seem to have more old farts than future players

    Futures league is the old 2nd XI comp, but there are now rules about how many over 23s/25s can be in a team.

    Haddin playing a couple of games to get ready for BBL (how that works boggles the mind for me)

    If the selectors want a bloke to do a siddle like role how about jackson bird. Hes leading the wickets and siddle really was a let down in the perfect bowling conditions. Obviously its only temporary untiil starc is back but bird looked good in his first go

    I agree Bird is a huge upgrade on Siddle, just about any bowler would be
