100% agreed.
Like I said early in the article I did think White’s comments were a bit premature, but I think the fact that its only his second match labels Ward as someone worth looking at for the future.
But like you said, with the bowlers lacking a bit of match fitness or readiness, and on a batting track, Ward will need to build on this performance over the next couple of seasons before he can think about national team selection.

Yep, and with players like Smith and Warner, who aren’t even getting game time for their respective IPL franchises, they will be lacking in match fitness and time out in the middle of the pitch.
Quite concerning for the summer

Agreed, however, there were signs that it was deteriorating, and it’s only day two. I still think it will end in a draw however due to the quality of Queensland’s batting lineup and while Tasmania do boast the experience of Siddle, I feel their bowling attack is just not strong enough to force a result. But we’ll see what unfolds I guess.
