Langer's days are numbered. He's a control freak and that approach is holding us back right now.

I set up "office" at AB field yesterday arvo and took in the last couple of sessions of the Sheffield Shield final. NSW rolled for 143 so with no batting bonus points my understanding is they need to win outright now. QLD in control at 1-58 in reply.

Michael Neser and Jack Wildermuth did the damage with the ball. 5 and 4 wickets respectively. Neser deserving of his 5 for. Nailed his line and length on a deck offering a little sideways movement.

For QLD Joe Burns looked in great form up against Starc and Hazelwood. A very good stsrt for 20 until he got a pearler from Hazelwood and nicked behind. Marnus then came to the crease and looked every bit the dominant player he is. Rick solid defense then waiting for the right ball to dispatch. Bryce Street was his typical gritty self. He was challenged by the pace of the NSW quicks but wasn't about to give his wicket away. He's a real old school grafter. Lyon came on and really tested him. That will be an interesting contest when it resumes today.

Must admit it's awesome being able to head to the local park and watch some the world's best bowlers take on one of the world's best bats.

Marnus brings up his 100. He scores them for fun these days. Qld 40 ahead with 8 wickets in hand.

This feels like one of those games that is already over. NSW batted far too badly to come back from here.

Qld may as well just bat for as long as they can now.

Use the advantage of finishing first and grind NSW into the ground

The new points system is meant take that away somewhat. NSW getting rolled for under 200 took bonus points out of the equation.
