Saw the presentation after the match, and there loud and proud were two bogan hands indicating the overall score of the series. What a joke. Show the other team some respect.

 

Nothing to be proud of in that backdrop

Despite not having GOAT in the team we are still an atrocious ODI team. Tactics, field settings and bowling is bottom of the table stuff. I'm not sure we could even beat Ireland.

tests, ODI and 20/20 require different skill sets and mindsets.

Must have different selectors, coaches, captains and team members.

Our test quicks always get hammered in ODIs.

GOAT should have played. Pretty fair effort on Jason Roy scoring 180 though.

Off my face, made the cut.............

No question 304 is a disappointing effort by the team

 

It actually was disappointing Weeti. The Aussies would have scored enough to win, had they not batted like they didn't care for far too long during their own innings.

 

All too often they walked a single instead of putting pressure on the outfielders by daring to consider a 2nd run.

 

And all too often, they hit it close to an infielder, and didn't even leave their creases. If that was a 20/20 game they would have run at least twenty extra singles when there seemingly wasn't any, and they would have turned 15 singles to the outfield into twos.

 

What made it worse and even more glaring, was that Finch was one of the worst offenders, and he's come from 20/20 cricket, so he should know better, yet he batted for the most part without any real sense of urgency.

 

Those extra runs they ignored and didn't push for, would have been enough to have won the game, I reckon (and that's despite a very slow start to the Aussie innings).

 

The Poms came out and showed how it should be done ..... after 5 overs had reached 50 and had pretty much doubled Australia's score by comparison, and were well on their way to getting the runs.

 

As Mouldy suggested, one day games are a  completely different beast and need to be treated accordingly, by both the selectors, and by the team management on the day..... :D

Finch doesn't run singles in 20/20 from the games I have Saa. He is a boundary or nothing guy.

Holland and Handscomb are rightly there to ensure the aperitifs have been correctly prepared for the superior NSW contingent, who shouldn't have to lower themselves to such mandane tasks during their stay in South Africa.

It is pleasing that this thread has rightfully reached the CA hierarchy. As I've previously stated Holland is the best performing spinner in the country.

Handscombe's selection is an obvious mea culpa.

I found it very interesting that Starc brought up dissension in the ODI team. Obviously, Finch being the only performer has antagonised the Baggy Blues.

It becomes a CA vs Players contract dispute carryover. The Baggy Blues, like the militant CFMEU, demand their quota of players. GOAT coming into the team is the least they'll accept.

I hope he does because the Poms are waiting to smash him out of the ground. The chances of Lyon bowling a full quota of 10 overs are nil.
