I was listening to Bruce Eber+Dean Jones.They where highly critical of the Scorchers tactics.

Another loss for the Scorchers after a reasonable start to the match.The Sixers had a big 3rd wicket partnership.And a competitive total on another slow east coast wicket.We also had a good 3rd wicket partnership after losing early wickets. But where to far behind the net RR to challenge for a win.
Next match Boxing Day at Optus V last year's winners Adelaide Strikers. Hoping for around 40,000 to attend the night match.Our fragile top order will be tested against Adelaides good bowling attack.

GTR why on earth are they playing so many bowlers in the team and a complete lack of specialist batsmen?
2 pathetic totals are the end result!
Absurd stuff!

Early days yet, but the batting doesn’t give you any confidence. Still, not to worry gtr, WA has has the best Aussie Rules football Club in the country. ;)

According to Karl Langdon the crowd estimate at Optus 45,000 to 50,000.Scorchers v Strikers.

Which is only around 15,000 short that went to the same venue to watch a test match for 5 days a week or so ago. Great that people of all ages are engaging with the BBL 20/20 etc, find myself enjoying the test cricket (which you can easily find something to whinge about if you want to) and 50 overs more but hey whatever gets people interested and involved.

Spot on GTR, how good is it to see cricket played on a proper deck again like Perth Stadium tonight as opposed to the MCG borefest road!!

The owners of Aussie cricket cannot let states produce wickets like we saw today. Like it or not, the coming generations don’t want the old style test cricket. They want fast moving action, be it 20/20 or tests. I agree with them, as old as I am, I was all over the first 2 tests, but don’t think I’ll be all over this one unless something changes dramatically.
