    Round of shield starting today, all day night fixtures.

    Blues just before lunch 1 for 69 against SA


    Qld 1 for 75 vs Victorians at Tea


    WA are 3 for 88 against Tassie at Tea.



    Tune into the NSW/SA game and the commentators are talking about the Flogball GF ffs!! Can't get away from the piece of shit game.

    I feel Burns might've played his way out of the test team. Didn't score to many runs in the Matador cup and only made 25 today. I hope he gets a chance on his home ground though.

    This pink ball goes sort of fluro of a night time and its pretty easy to see, although you wouldn't know looking at the Blues batting card.

    They seem a bit unsure and reaching for the ball, run rate is way slow too. I guess it takes some getting used to.

    Not really much swing although the Sacas are mainly using spinners atm.

    From a tv viewers perspective the pink ball is probably easier to see at night then the normal red ball is during the day. Forgot it was on today so I don't now what it is like during the day and at dusk

    Nice Declaration by Smiffy, get them in under lights while the ball is doing plenty.

    Getting a chance to watch some of the NSW game now. The pink ball looks great for TV. Very clear. It does become easier to bat...SA are wagging the tail a bit.

    Anyone watching the NSW game ? NSW have batted during the twilight session pretty well. So I am going to put Starc and Hazlewoods spell down to good bowling/poor batting rather than the pink ball being too tricky at twilight.

    EDIT

    Watching this after work is really selling me on the concept. Its very enjoyable sitting back and watching some proper cricket in the evenings. Also SA have the weirdest field set to Smith. Like a square of fielders on the onside.

    Scott Henry became the 17th player to score a century on debut for Queensland yesterday, went on to score 120 in a total of 444.

    Saw a bit of our game against the Redbacks and we are still killing it.

    Cowan brings up his 100 and Smith goes the tonk to bring up his 150 and has declared the innings closed at 1/291.

    3/51 now. Every wicket has been terrible. Bad bowling has go them. Starc bowling like the old Starc so far this session after bowling brilliantly in first innings.

    He copped a bit early on but was bowling good. That Smith character just scored arsey runs.

    Nah there were a few good balls that got edged but there was a lot of hit sent down the leg side, wide of off etc.

    Lyon got a decent wicket. 4/65

    I turned off to finish my work for the day after about over 2. I couldn't watch a guy score a bunch of streaky runs. That said Starc is an erratic bowler but he is a wicket taker.

    Ferguson batted really well only to get out on 96, last man off O'Keefe, good bit of keeping by Nev as well.

    Solid win. Hazlewood bowled well this innings, much better than first. Starc was not as sharp. Lyon bowled well.
