Re: Curtis Scott is a born-and-bred Shire boy. This is why he snubbed Sydney... twice

I can't wait to watch him play in lime green. If ill-discipline and serious injury are behind him then we have a quality outside back in the squad. Talent was never lacking. It will be interesting to see how quickly he adapts to Sticky style football. With the wide early ball movement he will get pl...

Azza, I'm not too worried about form during a 'holiday' training session in January. I'll be more concerned if we see it in the trial matches though.

That's a pretty good test match line up for the ICC team of the year. Well done to Starc in particular - still have NFI why he only played 1 ashes test :? :doubt:
Two words - Trevor Hohns. His affection for Peter Siddle cost a series win imo.

The problem is when teams like India come out and then you have matches where they become absolute batathons - 550 vs 500 etc. Gets very boring... I think the batting of Pujara surprised the Aussies last season. All the focus was on Kholi, but, except in Perth, Pujara was a rock. I think the Austra...

Handscomb has such a vulnerable technique in that he starts so far back he cannot go further back without treading on his stumps.
