you miss my point. I did not name people just YOUTH like Green etc
Keep playing names that are out of form or too old is just taking up space that younger players can be learning the hard way. It’s like Hussey ,Rogers and a few others that make thousands of runs in full domestic seasons and get in only to find time has caught up with them.

MATCH REPORT: Buttler blitzkrieg sees England hand Australia 'an absolute hiding'

Finally CAM someone mentions the next generation. I harp on it. Green was an excellent decision and he will grow . Pucovski has the talent.
But to get some underperforming 35 yo out of this team is annoying.
Build for the future instead of recycling the same old under performers.
No one mentions Maddison’s form either.

Australia must be prepared to drop David Warner

I agree Neil but I have been scratching my head trying to work out why a large number of matches have been won by the team batting second. I don’t see an obvious reason. The odd match yes. But so many?

Not sure why you and Richie persist in arguing. Would be nice just to read interesting , or witty, comments.
Schoolyard stuff

Wait, the Suns pre-listed who?

The point is Thom we Tasmanians want our OWN team.
End of..

Why do think North would want to relocate? Not in their plans at all.
Send a club that’s in debt as a way of making money ..if you must send a club.
But Tasmania will stand on their own feet thanks

Wait, the Suns pre-listed who?

Couldn’t agree more. The reluctance to make changes is annoying. Some of my earlier posts have had Inglis in from the get go. Just use him depending on the situation or score.
Amazing how the team batting second is winning the majority of games. That’s been a head scratcher as well. Bit hard to factor that into a team’s combination.
But Marsh and Inglis in. Maybe Agar (too many lefties to bowl to) and Warner out..maybe it’s his time to be eased out completely including the Ashes.
Youth.

I agree with your point on Horne-Francis starting his career as an outside player such as the wing. More freedom to run and carry . And to use his goal kicking potential .
But not sure of his defensive side to that role

I agree Charlie. I could see Polec as an interchange Wingman . He has the natural craft needed in that role . Its harder to manufacture someone to do that role.

Hi CAM…sorry, it’s above my pay grade to make that call. But could YOU leave out Maxwell?

Hope you do..cheers

Revisiting my AFL predictions for 2021 - and a farewell to The Roar

If only we could play 12 on the park because on these wickets seven batters looks essential but on the other hand we need five bowlers.
Not sure on which deck we will get the balance right but it looks better when Agar is there.

Have to agree with that Bee Bee. Keep thinking about the MCC club

They are not playing Australian second eleven. Too many straws to grasp here.

Tongue in cheek when I say .. “You expect Australia to make changes?”
“e don’t do forward thinking” 😊

India crushed: Pakistan's flawless chase stuns T20 World Cup favourites

To be fair Jeff I think Carey is a nice balanced batsman who can occupy the crease and build an innings BUT if I want a talented “slogger” in my team I would opt for Inglis all the time.
Wade did a competent job against SA but can’t wait to see Inglis in there. But I feel that’s not going to happen in this tournament

MATCH REPORT: Ice-cool Stoinis clinches nervy run chase after bowlers run riot

AGREED

Scratching my head with that one..line up was fragile enough with Warner and Finch without depleting it further. The only bowling change would be to squeeze Agar if it suited the conditions

I have been a supporter for this fresh face for some time and was pleased to see his English T20 results which confirmed what a lot of us thought.
Better against spin as well…
It’s hard to get out of a side but they need to make the change

Keepers to spare Micko

Australia badly need some games for their fringe Test players

Not a lot wrong with their defence. More talls now plus returning players from injury ..plus two All Australian reps.
Better than a lot of other sides

Dogs' defence up to AFL flag task: Wood

who is?

You didn’t notice Inglis?

Great career. Will be missed.
Possibly O’Brien can be a CHB leaving Cordy as third tall backed up by their smaller good player in Daniel, Dale and Duryea

Dog done: Premiership captain announces AFL retirement

Thank you ADRAD. Great research and a well put together story to bring back so many memories.
The things we forget about the game we love. What names.
The one sad thing I recall in that era was the South African boycott.
If only to have seen that great side led by the Pollocks in particular
But..
Thanks again
