I tell you what, Maddison has not been bad late last season and obviously this game, he might just be getting it together.

Tim Paine just brought up his first First Class 100 in 13 years, the last time he scored one, John Howard was Prime Minister, the iPhone hadn't been invented and Justin Langer was opening for W.A.

Looks like a nice bit of batting practice down in St Kilda, 1,278 runs scored and South Australia still haven't finished their first innings. Tom Cooper 268*

pathetic strip prepared.

where do you stand on the ‘set a target/result’ debate?

I'm with South Australia in that debate, there's no way you can bat for 2 days, score 600 plus and then expect the other team to give a "sporting declaration" at a deficit to make a game of it.

Good on them I say, Victoria made it so that there was no scenario that SA could win the match, so SA made them sweat it out in the field for 2 days, tough cookies.

I mean, it's really a non-issue, the main issue is that they played on a trash pitch that should be removed from the domestic cricket rotation until it's got some more juice in it.

I'm watching the RC game between Vic and Tas right now, since when did George Bailey start facing the bowler behind his own backside? I mean, he is literally standing with his back to the bowler. What the?

He started it a few summers ago, there is a video on YouTube about it

Interestingly, these commentators are boring BUT they are talking about the 26 players who have made 8000 Sheffield Shield runs and the first to do it...Don Bradman...averaged 110! in Shield cricket. Far out!

He slightly changes it for OD games, he isn't so far around. Still perfectly in position when he hits the ball.

Bailey needs 10 more to go past Boon.

Bailey 8019
Boon 8029

If he really got amongst the runs this year he could get to Bradman on 8926. Bradman did that in 96 innings- Bailey just completed his 226.

Ok random question time. Do women batters wear a box? It wouldn’t be much fun for them either to cop a cricket ball in the crotch.

You can probably rule Maddinson out of the test matches this Summer, he's withdrawn from the Australia A side due to mental health issues.

I can almost guarantee we're going to be getting this for the first test, nobody has done enough to displace them, unless Pucovski or Burns score massive for Aus A -

1. Warner
2. Harris
3. Labuschagne
4. Smith
5. Head
6. Wade
7. Paine (c)
8. Cummins
9. Starc
10. Lyon
