not sure on that tom he’s been hit numerous time by short balls but here is hoping he can make it a thing of the past. also will be a bit harder against international pace bowlers rabada archer etc

When will Warner and Khawaja call time, and why does that matter?

c plus perhaps . he’s certainly got the flat track bully record but he’s not the player he was at test arena before his ban . pakistan at home he made some big runs some time ago and has had a few good innings since but only on Aussie pitches . an average of 33 in Pakistan has him at c+ to c- for sure. first two tests were batting roads as well .

don’t disagree not whiteman was exceptional In the shield final and hunt the best of the candidates with his average I. shield as opener . pucovski great but he’ll need to prove he has conquered the short ball

When will Warner and Khawaja call time, and why does that matter?

off recent form it’s whiteman and hunt in front of the others and pucovski if he can recover . other options are opening with labuschagne as he has so often done but it’s playing with batting order a tad . khawaja is capable of batting first drop as well . let’s see how Sri Lanka and India tours go and start of the shield but warner needs to up the average he displayed in Pakistan and should not tour england ever again after averaging 8 there last series

When will Warner and Khawaja call time, and why does that matter?

Warner’s all time worse average in cricketing history anywhere at test level in some 150 years of 8 in the UK ashes means he should never open there again. he doesn’t play those pitches well at all and isn’t going to be any younger . if he can make runs in subcontinent and I’d give him a C minus for his efforts in Pakistan then he can play on but there are signs his test average is plummeting since nz toured in Australia . The next step is seeing how he goes in Sri Lanka . he’s ipl and short form focused for money going forward . hunt ,whiteman and pucovski if he can get over the concussions are closing the gap for a start big time

When will Warner and Khawaja call time, and why does that matter?

totally agree it’s an important factor . warner is done in England he cannot play those pitches .

very true rowdy Shane Paine couldn’t follow his lead after being beaten by 8nd8a on home soil twice and probably Ponto after a third ashes loss . doesn’t diminish Paine was a great keeper and pointing one of our best batsmen of all time . much like root to england as a batsman . these men were just not great captains but amazing cricketers with their batting or keeping etc

Root quits as English Test captain: 'It's been an honour but taken a toll'

no

Is the Australian cricket team becoming dangerously arrogant again?

read this and your other well researched article on close test finishes the other day matt . appreciate the research time and effort in these articles mate . yes hoping these openers can develop as warner looks like he’s slowly on way out for me especially abroad . khawaja may also get some time down the order but let’s see if he can continue the extroadinary run opening . not to concerned on jhye and McDermott missing out unless 22 spots were available although cricket Australia are making a meal of Australian cricket management for me

2022 Sheffield Shield season review

I’d say you make an interesting suggestion majority of fans are apathetic and just stick to brand names not loyalty or form necessarily

'Goodness me:' Major shock as Jhye Richardson axed from Cricket Australia's contract list

um no more Paine. couldn’t even make runs against seconds in Tassie

'Goodness me:' Major shock as Jhye Richardson axed from Cricket Australia's contract list

Hazelwood and starc will need rotation anyway as they pick up injuries or tire with averages as long series go on or have some grounds that may not suit . Boland and jhye easily next go to bowlers . don’t see a problem with list . excited to see hunt whiteman and or pucovski chase down Warner’s spot or possibly see if two can gain huge form to let khawaja bat down list if need be . Sri Lanka and India and next shield season to reveal more on the openers positions.

'Goodness me:' Major shock as Jhye Richardson axed from Cricket Australia's contract list

Hazelwood and starc simply need wise rotation for obvious reasons . j rich is next in with Boland . pretty simple

'Goodness me:' Major shock as Jhye Richardson axed from Cricket Australia's contract list

pretty obvious Richardson Abbott steketee are next best three as neser maybe getting a tad older now. Hazelwood and starc are prone to injuries if they play to much so rotation will continue. I think jhye and McDermott would be picks 21 and 22 without much doubt

whiteman continues to impress whilst hunt may be edging street for an openers slot . they are the two that are leading the race to replace warner in the next 12 months depending on pucovskis battle against concussions. whiteman very impressive in shield final all be it on home turf . aus needs two new openers to shine in next 12 months but alas we have to wait for next shield season and see how warner goes in Sri Lanka and India next .
be interesting to see how the Tassie youth continue in shield ( ward, rainbird) come november along with steketee and the Queensland spinner kuhneeman.
McDermott , jhye Richardson clearly knocking on door if injury free to regular baggy green status despite lack of contract.

really what rock did you crawl out from under. warne had a congenital heart defect , asthma episodes and poor diet and multi time zone life . nothing to do with the fake news idiocy and unproven conspiracy. great memorial, amazing character and talent that doesn’t need illegitimate fear driven posts like yours

Shane Warne memorial service as it happened: Celebrities, legends and loved ones farewell an Australian sporting icon

I was there about 35k there . pride of Victoria . no Australian cricketer could draw a memorial and world wide presence like that, only warne .

nope she was number 1 and If you have ability to win 5 plus slams you go in to the immortal books in tennis I think . I know it’s a fine effort to date extraodianry but to leave slams on the table at 25 now the world is opening up …I can imagine with her running game and size it might get harder Ina. few years but she’s at her peak and has a few more slams in her at least and so much time in life . long time retired

The Barty party is over but there's no hangover, just happiness for Australia's most humble champion

At her age and position she should have played another 2 to 3 years retired at 28 to see just how many more slams she could win . long time retired and plenty of years left for family and other business and fun
