    Thank christ for Cowan, Blues would be screwed totally without him
    NSW 6/158 second dig ,lead 147, need another 70+ to make a game of it
    Copeland is retired hurt so we are really 7 down

    Copeland about to bowl, when I got here I heard it was hand injury so must be his non-bowling hand.

    Bancroft cover drove a couple on the up, NSW take out a slip and put him in at Cover and Bancroft drives straight to him, sharp catch by Cowan.

    Bancroft will get eaten alive in South Africa.

    Not sure if I read correctly but cricinfo said that Matt Wade took a 3fa?

    Who the f**k were the plodsman?

    Is he the all rounder that Gotham needs?

    Safrica use a kookie is conditions that are more seam and swing friendly than those in Australia. So this will be good prep for any test batsmen going on the tour. Not so much for the bowlers.

    Blues all out 213 2nd dig
    Cowan and Henriques were soft dismissals. Moses caught and bowled via a forward defensive stroke lol

    SA need only 189 to win

    How Larkin is continually picked is one for Ripley's and we continually go in with only 4 recognised batsman. Selectors need a bullet.

    Larkin has made a lot of runs in grade cricket but just cant seem to make the jump up to the next level

    rd 7 sheffield shield.JPG

    Blues dip to 3rd

    3 games to go for each state

    Any state can make the final, any state can finish last

    I hate this points system, you could make or miss the final by 0.01 points
