Lets wait and see until he gets to the international arena yeah? hes played all of a dozen first class games, wait for him to play 25-30 and if his performances/stats are just as good, then pick him. But not before.

Young gun Cameron Green stars for Western Australia with unbeaten ton

“Although it was fine the previous game. That team could win the World Cup. Last night’s team can’t…yet it is the same team.”
Your words Don hahha

Australia choke against South Africa

Mitch ’25 test average’ Marsh will save the day. Gee it must be joyful being this delusional

Australia choke against South Africa

Of course Marsh can do no wrong!!!

Australia choke against South Africa

Him being found guilty of ball tampering in Hobart 2016 was a joke. Literally no one except for a few parochial aussies mentioned it after a week.

Under-siege Faf will welcome Aussie challenge

Totally agree that someone will beat us at Brisbane soon enough. I can only see South Africa doing us there tbh, possibly England summer after next if Jofra Archer is in fine form.

India agree to Gabba visit and day-night Test in Australia

Smith averages more in Australia than Warner…..go figure that one out

Warner's win means it's time for an Allan Border Medal rethink

“A junior”, wait so Bancroft, a 26 year old, 5 year veteran of FC cricket with 60-70 under his belt is the one with the least to blame? He’s the one that did the deed, he’s the most culpable.

Warner's win means it's time for an Allan Border Medal rethink

But not every 5 set match is a 5 hour slog, sometimes they are rather quick if there are a couple of 6-2 games for instance.

One thing the Australian Open and other slams must be rid of

Marcus Stoinis: $980,000 (Delhi Capitals). Ronan do you even know what’s going in the IPL auction lol?

Marcus Stoinis is merely a Big Bash bully

Yeah totally agree. Adaptability is the biggest thing. I think Labuschagne playing more T20 cricket will turn him into a quicker scoring player in the long run

Three players Australia must select to tour South Africa

I have a feeling he’s far too predictable in ODIs and just resorts to test length when they start going after him. It’s weird because he had a brilliant first half 2019 but couldnt quite sustain it in the world cup.

Paul I appreciate your thought on most matters, here included but have to disagree. I think Labuschagne has the ability to mold his game, as evidenced in the One Day Cup and in the test team, to be a dynamic No.4. Striking around 90-95 is plenty. It’s Finch who is the issue, too often he’s 15 off 25-26 putting pressure on Warner and Smith to up the strike rate.

Maxwell probably needs to come back into the team batting at 7, with possibly Stoinis as a No.6, but he would be on a shortish leash and needs to perform quickly. However I think Stoinis is better the higher he bats, because he starts slowly, so bat him at #5 and move Carey to #6 for the foreseeable future.

Chris would love your thoughts on Cummins continued mediocrity as an ODI bowler? He seems to lack a lot of penetration in the shorter formats, I’m thinking he should become a test specialist tbh. Hazelwood is a better ODI bowler.

Though I think Agar is mediocre at least in the shorter formats, I think criticising a No.7 for getting 25* off 25 when a collapse is happening around you is a bit hard tbh. Ideally yes Agar would be coming in at 7 and regularly hitting 30 off 20-25 balls at the tail end of an innings or when required a steady 50-60 at 90 SR when the team is down.
It seems you have a distaste for Agar as bad as Don Freo’s fanaticism’s towards WA cricketers.

He’s definitely top 5 ODI batsman for AUS. After Ponting and Bevan for sure. Smith looks like he’s finding his groove again at ODI level. Hopefully we see him push on and make 25 One Day hundreds by retirement. His batting record in ODIs really doesnt do him justice tbh, an average of 42.9 is good, but not high enough to be considered in the class of Root, Kohli, Williamson or Sharma/Dhawan.

Turner and Agar leave the Aussie middle order weak

Ronan you literally said a week ago that Agar strengthens our bowling at 7, but weakens the batting. He’s a trash bowler as evidenced buy his sky high average and strike rate. Why not stick with your opinions instead of flipping around to suit the headlines?

Turner and Agar leave the Aussie middle order weak

Yeah you still do. Zampa doesn’t have the wood on him. He’s versed Kohli in what 15-20 games? Getting him out 5-6 times isn’t at all impressive. And as I said, an average of 35 is mediocre.

Impressive India set up ODI series decider against Australia

So he’s got him out twice and now suddenly that makes my statement not true? Nice logic. Averages 35.74 at an e/c of 5.69, they’re not good stats. Also Kohli made 78 before being dismissed so you’ve made yourself look pretty silly

Impressive India set up ODI series decider against Australia

Ronan the king of cherry picking! Especially when Zampa averages 35 with the ball and regularly takes stick from the best batsman. But we cant question Ronan’s authority on this one?

Impressive India set up ODI series decider against Australia

Langer loves yes men and and echo chamber so no one can challenge him. Everything Waugh does just reeks of arrogance. High quality player, pretty ordinary bloke as far as sledging and abusing opposition goes. Also his arrogance and entitled attitude that other players should respect him like the incident between Curtly Ambrose and him in 1995.
However gets points for the charity stuff.

Newly released footage shows behind the scenes of Steve Smith's sickening Lord's blow

Can Steve Waugh just shutup? Everything he does just screams ‘look at me, i need attention because I know I’m irrelevant’

One game against the best one day team in the world and we’re “exposing their bowlers’. Bit of a reach tbh. Let’s draw these conclusions at the end of this short series.

Star Indian bowlers being exposed by Australia

So he should just swing for the hills and get out with a mountain left to climb? Yes, sometimes in the recent past he’s used up a few too many balls but he’s never been the sort of player to come in and belt a quickfire 60* off 40.

Australia boosted by MS Dhoni's absence

? Plenty of consistent aggressive ODI batsman. Sure, none strike at 120 but really how valuable is an innings of 35 off 25 from Maxwell. He just plays dumb shots and is a massive liability in the middle order in ODIs

Glenn Maxwell powers Stars home with some of the best hitting you'll see
