That was the best leave ever by Marnus

Renshaw and Burns to battle Australian Test attack

NSW lost 6-16. QLD in front now. Of course we need Monty Burns and Renners to take on the NSW attack.

We managed to get through the “next generation” of baggy greens to get into the actual baggy green players. QLD just maybe on top.

Moises is putting on some innings.

CA have set up the streaming platform so kudos for that. But each state has to organise their own home broadcast. That is why you such variances in quality from game to game. QLD does a hopeless job of it for example. SA and NSW do a great job.

It’s actually CNSW streaming.

Sanga is gone, looked OK but QLD targeted him with the short ball and he did not look comfortable with them.

Henriques is looking mint unfortunately.

Big wicket for QLD. Another quick one would be great.

It would be great if we could get two more wickets before lunch, even one more would set us up for a result.

I can’t say I am sad to see him leave.

Reports: McGuire set for immediate Cowboys move

This is fox’s answer to Netflix. Their words. It is the online streaming service that was supposed to be up and running I believe. It is from $25-$35 a month for all their sport.

I expect my royalties by the end of the month Rupert.

Assessing Cricket Australia’s TV gamble

I think a lot of people are confused by this. Even if you did know about CA streaming service, last year you had to pay for it and this year you don’t(well at least so far).

I spent 10 mins trying to convince someone recently it was free to watch, not $27.50 or what ever it was last season.

Rugby went to Fox mostly and look how that is turning out. Cricket in England, even the old BBL with the States was on Fox only if I remember and that didn’t get enough attention for CA. CA are inept if they didn’t realise that this would happen.

I get the feeling some were asleep at the well given one of the key players in the deal was tossed out of the building last week, literally.

Assessing Cricket Australia’s TV gamble

Short and Lynn have played 4 ODI’s. I think the expectations on Marsh to score a hundred every innings are absurd, so I am not going to do the same to Short or Lynn.

Those expectations come from people not liking a player, not from any rational judging of performance or improvement.

Who can add the needed steel to Australia's fragile ODI batting?

I would be interested to know what Short did to Don not to get the WA treatment.

If you watch it, he was extremely unlucky.

Yeah, but you clearly don’t rate him so I will take your judgements of Lynn with a grain of salt. Not many have made runs so far. You even want to drop the guy who has scored the most runs in the last year or so.

Lynn and Short were the most dominate players in the JLT cup with a couple of others so they deserve to get a run given the state of the team. McDermott is another who has earned a go based on his JLT cup form, which for once is actually relevant.

Your not understanding how the modern cricket fan works Ronan. If they don;t rate you then you need to score a hundred every game to keep them off your back. This shouldn’t be a big problem, but it is how the game works as a whole here, so selectors from all levels suffer from this type of thinking.

First impressions matter. If you are a young guy, look good and score early in your career and you will get an easier ride than those who struggle a bit early on.

The other way you could put this is the Australian batsmen need to learn how too work one’s and two’s.

Who can add the needed steel to Australia's fragile ODI batting?

Are they all playing? Are they going to be rested or have strict bowling limits? It would be great if everyone was just let loose.

Who can add the needed steel to Australia's fragile ODI batting?

Lynn is a number 3, maybe 4. He likes to get his eye in before he tee’s off. You saw it in Adelaide. I would definitely put him in for the Adelaide series. The only concern is his fielding.

The Selectors are still stuck in trying to work out our own way of playing or trying to copy England, forgetting at the same time what sort of players we do have.

Who can add the needed steel to Australia's fragile ODI batting?

This time of year would be great to have One day domestic games on free to air on a Friday night. There is little other sport on TV at the moment and CA should be investing in getting domestic games on TV like the NRL does with the QRL and NSWRL. What CA used to do with the One Day comp. The QRL is quite popular here in QLD now because it is on free to air TV consistently.

Scheduling has damaged the Sheffield Shield

Well if that is the criteria for selection then we will have to bow out of ODI’s, forfeit all future internationals because no one meets the form criteria.

Australia's top order fails again as Proteas win to clinch 2-1 series lead

Couldn’t you also argue Head was doing the same thing as Marsh and Stoinis? He was 6 off 21. Thee thing he did wrong was get out after spending time out there.

The more important question to ask is what “should” the High performance manager do?

To me the HPM should only be responsible for organising data, sub-metrics, coaches and sports science for the National team. All player development pathways and junior programs should be moved to a Pathways/High performance manager for each State who are not beholden to anyone but the State association.

The national High Performance manager should also have zero input into the Shield or other domestic comps. This way we can return to having actual Comps where the State coaches KPI’s are reduced to winning the Shield and JLT cups. Right now their KPI’s are all around producing players for the National team.

The answer to Cricket Australia's shattered image was there all the time

The question should not be who will replace Howard. It is should the role exist in the future, and if it does how should it be redefined.

Clark has already said she doesn’t want the job long term.
