Can you imagine what would be said about state bias in selection for the Australian side if Marsh came from NSW.

Does anybody know why the one-day game yesterday started being streammed for free, but then became locked half way through the game?

There were many rain delays AR were no play was possible but I managed to watch it all online.
I couldnt believe we only bowled Kelly for 2 overs (took 3/7) as the late great Richie Benaud would say "The Captain has got his sums wrong again"!!!

Very strange decision and it nearly cost them, if Handscomb had another over he would have got them over the line I reckon.

What a comical run out of Cartwright in the game against QLD at the Gold Coast!

Only WA could lose 4 for 5 when seemingly coasting to victory in a run chase!

Only WA could lose 7 for 24 when seemingly coasting to victory in a run chase of 269.

That sort of collapse just would NOT have happened to the WA teams of the 1970s & 80s!

That collapse may cost them a home final BH. In fact if they lose their last game in Adelaide they may miss out on the final altogether. This would be very disappointing given that they should really be bossing this competition with the personnel that they have at their disposal. Where was Jhye Richardson today?

Pretty much the same ol story of the last 20 years or so Mike.
I think Richardson was rested possibly for the upcoming Australia A game against Pakistan?

Yeah 7/24 was definitely a bit of a mare....be interested to see what tack Voges takes now....play less bits and pieces players and more specialist batsmen?.....who is there in grade cricket that Voges can bring in as a specialist batsman?

freezin, bh, mikeh: It was very bad. The worse part about it is the WACA's obsession with all-rounders, there is no awareness down there, that such players of note are very rare in cricket history. Since the beginning of our time in the Shield -- late 1940s -- we have produced just three all-rounders: Maclay, Brayshaw and Moody; and, remember, I am being kind, because, both Moody and Maclay, had respective stronger suits, batting or bowlling stronger suits. Given those hard as steel krupp facts which used to go into the making of the German panzer divisions, how is it possible for the WACA to believe, in 2019, that WA has eleven all rounders?
