Those away stats don't look right, waugh 40 less digs for more runs at basically the same average?

Edit- waugh 110 innings away from home

They've mentally gone home.. No one gives a **** here either

Best part of reading the scorecard was Watson lbw for 20

Ahmed got taken to town, 6 overs for 48. I think he has no chance of making his test debut now, Agar would of jumped him in the queue

Considering he was the best performer in the sub continent, and has been our best slow bowler in Shield for years, O'Keeffe should be next in line. Lyon, O'Keeffe + 2 seamers and one seaming all rounder in Bangladesh I think.

SOK took 6-82, 2-81/ 2-30 & 4-88 in the 2 4 day matches against India A in India. Those Indian teams included Kohli, Pujara and a few other test batsmen as well.

If O'Keefe isn't #2 then they need to do away with A tours altogether.

Stoinis is lucky to make the first XI of whatever BBL team he plays in, but he's a project player for cricket australia.

Single handedly cost Australia the game last night.

Selectors really need to be **** off.

Stoinis just looks like another 'bang OR bust' player to me. A bit Symonds or Gayle (possibly a bit harsh give his record) like, when he comes off, he goes big, but otherwise its a serious fizzle; and the other night was a serious fizzle.

Brad Haddin reportedly set to announce his Test retirement: http://cricketa.us/1ENyrBK

Congrats to a great cricketer - and Raiders member - on a brilliant career.

Nevill may be able to do him proud in the test arena, but there is still noone near him in limited overs cricket.
I'm starting to believe again. Don't let us down Stick.

Congratz to Hadz on a good career.

Yeah, I like Nevill, but im going off Wade, not consistent enough.

I hope Whiteman or Ludeman come good. I think there is a 3rd good youngster, but name escapes me for the moment.

Can I suggest one of the Mitch's? Marsh or Starc? They seem like likeable cricketers and always in the action.

Australia's tour of Bangladesh called off for security fears.

Can't blame them for not wanting to go there right now.

I agree on this actually, as ACT would essentially be a NSW XI with about 3 token local players.
