My only issue with him is that his runs have come from flat Victorian wickets but he can only score on the wickets he bats on. But another good knock and he should enter the conversation

Who's knocking on the Test selection door?

I reckon Maddinson is one more good knock and a few consistent performances away from being in the conversation

Who's knocking on the Test selection door?

I was more excited by AFLX than i am about The Hundred and i wasn’t excited by AFLX. I am a big fan of T20 cricket but i fail to see how a game that will be 40 balls shorter (20 an innings) and half an hour shorter will bring new fans into the game and why a new shorter format was needed.
That being said i liked the draft format and is something i’d like to see in the Big Bash in the future.

Does anyone really care about The Hundred?

Stupid format and one i struggle to see the point of. Do see new fans coming to the game because it will be 30 minutes shorter.

The revolution will be televised: The Hundred begins to take shape

I forget how young Travis head is

Why Australia should look beyond Shaun Marsh

My issue with Shaun is he’s already had more than enough opportunities to prove he’s a test cricketer and why would this time be any different. At 36 he’s also only got a year or 2 left Wouldn’t it be better to look elsewhere now

Will Pucovski must play Test cricket this summer

At first it looks like a bad call but on second look, it looks out

Steve Smith in disbelief after copping harsh LBW call on verge of victory

But how many opportunities can we keep giving Marsh. Yes runs count but he’s had his chance and given Pucovski is scoring runs shouldn’t we give him the opportunity

Why Australia should look beyond Shaun Marsh

Yeah true but he is taking the opportunity when it presents itself. It’s a big day of cricket for him today at the WACA, i would also say its a big day to for Maddinson who can’t seem to stop making runs at the moment. Both these players are making run in batting friendly conditions but at least they are making runs

Why Australia should look beyond Shaun Marsh

I hate the concept of selecting for the future but with Pucovski inform and scoring runs you have to pick him now and Shaun marsh has had enough opportunities to cement his spot

Why Australia should look beyond Shaun Marsh

Could not agree more

Why Australia should look beyond Shaun Marsh

I know white and red ball cricket are different but Warners CWC 2019 was phenomenal. Was arguably one of the players of the tournament. Warner should maintain his spot

Australia's Test opening candidates are not stepping up

Could not agree more

Dons’ delicate Daniher dance

Don’t see Wade playing despite his 117 in the 5th test. With only 4 scores above 30 in the Ashes that is not good enough particularly when he didn’t pass 10 on 4 occasions

Mitch Marsh mourns moment of madness

Would of definitely played the 1st test, can’t see an all rounder being dropped with match figures of 7/86
