Death, taxes and the Stards choking
Is Josh Phillipe is the best short form keeper/batsman in Australia?
I absolutely think he can and will be. Right now, if a World Cup final was played tomorrow, I'd pick Alex Carey though.
I'm on the same page. But that would only because of Carey's experience at that level.
That aside I would go with Philippe.
With some good 20/20 form over the year (Im assuming he'll do the 20/20 circuit), he can definitely put on some heat for the aust keeping job in 20/20. I think it will take a while yet to unseat Carey from the ODI's as his form in 50 over and sheffield shield cricket has been strong for a few years now. He has been solid in the ODI setup as well.
Depends where he is batting that’s the honest answer. Josh Inglis is close
I’ve just popped in here to have a quality [email protected]
How many finals chokes is they now???
It’s almost [email protected]$!!! Worthy.
And Locky missing the last leg of the quaddie.
NSW ruling cricket as always
Makes it better it was against the mongs of melbourne
Carey is still better.
He's not as explosive, but he's a quality bat and Phillipe for all his batting abilities is pretty ordinary with the gloves.
I just can't believe that the rain actually stopped long enough to play 24 overs, for the Stars to choke, and for the BBL season to end.
I have literally been in a state of giggles for 12 hours.
[email protected] It just doesn't get any better than this.
PS - it absolutely bloody helped the Sixers getting Lyon, Hazlewood and Smith in to this side, as well as getting SOK and Abbott back from injury. Imagine if they'd let Starc play too...
In the invaluable words of blind Pacino...WHOOO Haaaaa!!
This is one of a thousand reasons people hate the stars:
It (a rain-shortened game featuring 12-over innings) is a bit of a lottery. I thought we bowled OK, we still gave them about 15 or 20 too many,” Maxwell said. “Losing three wickets in the first three overs probably hurts you. Stoin (Marcus Stoinis) picked out the one bloke on the fence and I got the one ball that Steve O’Keefe spins all tournament. It happens.”
Could play as a specialist batsman no problem imo.
Easily best side on paper which they converted to a title
I think have won 5 or 6 in a row back end of tournament with them in the side
Hazlewood for Curran
Smith for Kerr/Avendano
Lyon for Pope/Manenti
Though those players they replaced have contributed here and there at times, bloody no brainer you have the aussie reps in there 24/7 if you could
Shorter BBL season and the likes of Cummimns, Warner, Starc etc...to available at least for 80% of the tournament - the back end
suck a chumpa chomp champ Maxy
Bigger chokers than Riley Reid.
I laughed when I was reading comments by upset Stars fans, complaining about the Sixers getting back its 3 international players. If only there were some decent Victorians in the Australian side...
And that is why Maxy, Stoinplod, Handscum ain't in the Australian teams. Also rans, chokers, losers, duds, plods...
