    He actually has to inform the umpire beforehand otherwise it is a no ball , unlike Batsmen who can change to "switch hit" and it is perfectly fine , even though the field settings are changed by the batsmen doing this.

    Just another example of it being a batsmen's game.

    Colin Miller used to bowl medium and spin in the same over often but using the same arm.
    Yeah I remember funky doing that but that's nothing compared to what this fella was doing. He went for 60 odd from 6 overs I think so wasn't especially effective but pretty amazing to see at the higher levels.

    just watched some highlights

    pretty remarkable to bowl one arm good enough to play at that level let alone, right and left arm, especially in a land of 1 billion people (ok half are probably female)

    just looked him up on Cricinfo he has played 4 first class matches for 2 wickets, so he might be related to some of the selectors

    Interesting no Behrendorff or Paris for WA, not sure if they are still in rehab.

    Cricket Australia XI Max Bryant (Qld), Jake Carder (WA), Jackson Coleman (Vic), Daniel Fallins (NSW), David Grant (SA), Clint Hinchliffe (WA), Jonathan Merlo (Vic), Harry Nielsen (SA), Ben Pengelley (SA), Mark Steketee (Qld), Henry Thornton (NSW), Param Uppal (NSW), Beau Webster (Tas), Mac Wright (Tas).

    why Cricket Australia persists with this Cricket Australia X1 I don't know, both Hong Kong and Papua New Guinea have ODI status invite both of them and help develop/strengthen their cricket.

    England have announced their Ashes 16.

    Stokes retains the VC even after his latest incident.

    Cook
    Stoneman
    Vince
    Root (C)
    Malan/Ballance
    Stokes
    Bairstow/Foakes
    Ali/Crane
    Woakes/Ball/Overton
    Broad
    Anderson

    Yes a Stokes , Foakes and Woakes

    very vulnerable at 2,3 & 5

    Crane (leg spinner) , Ball and Overtones the 3 uncapped.

    Roland-Jones , Wood and Hameed are injured.

    Interesting the Lions (A team) will also be touring.

    If Starc & Hazlewood are fit to join Cummins at the Gabba I think they are ripe for the taking.

    correction

    Crane , Foakes and Overtones are the 3 uncapped players.

    Pretty sure Crane played Shield Cricket for NSW late last season.

    Stokes has fractured his hand after his night club incident , I suspect Warner will be into him about it :-)

    Stokes dropped.

    Bad for the team but a decision I support if the footage tells the story it does.

    suspended for the next ODI against the Windies pending further investigation.

    If it goes legal then surely Strauss has to rip up his contract , been in trouble before I think as well.

    Pattinson ruled out of the Ashes.

    Doubt we will ever get the 4 of them fit at the same time.

    I'm inclined to agree with both of you.

    Are there other countries that do it better? Anderson and Broad seem to play all the time, eg, but perhaps they rotate the third position enough that we can't draw too many conclusions from that?

    maybe go back to the old days and play 10 shield games , Test Series and go play county cricket.

    the best way to get fit for bowling is to actually bowl in the nets or games.

    think limited overs and 20/20 is stopping them actually bowling enough

    Anderson rarely plays white ball cricket anymore , not sure how many county games he plays.

    Broad has had heel problems most of this year.

    Pattinson would have had 4/5 stress fractures in his back now , so whether is just unlucky , I know they changed his action a couple of years ago.

    Possibly harder grounds.

    Starc is coming back from his ankle issues this weekend to play domestic one day.

    Coulter-Nile is another who has been injured a lot recently, back in the series against India.

    Was worried for Cummins in Bangladesh when Smith kept tossing him the ball.

    I don't know whether they are being too careful , and limiting their workload in case they get injured , sure I read once they are lucky to bowl 4-6 overs in a training session.

    Would have loved seeing Cummins , Pattinson and Starc at the Gabba together.

    Ben Stokes has been withdrawn from England's Ashes squad, pending further investigation into his alleged street brawl in Bristol last month, with Steven Finn stepping into the squad for the full five-Test series.

    interesting article on Cricinfo with Mark Waugh talking up Stoinis for the Ashes due to his performances in India , be nice if he performed at Shield level for WA first.

    next thing they will be picking Finch for the test team.

    Also talked about Paine (and Neville and Carey) , yet 3 days ago I read where the National Selectors have told Tassie that Wade must keep.

    So is Paine going to be picked without keeping for his state , very odd

    video is fantastic, please enjoy.

    I didn't realise Shaun Marsh has been recalled for an 8th time. God help us.

    Didn’t think his form warranted selection. I feel like we should have just stuck with Maxwell or gone with Cartwright instead. Would have given an extra bowling option too

    Good county season , runs in the JLT , runs in the Shield games , think they are (hoping) he can cover Handscomb and Paine , one of the most talented under achieving batsmen in the last 15 years.

    Paine is the baffling one has only kept in 3 shield games in the last 2 seasons.

    Smith seems reluctant to have the 5th bowler, think our attack will go through the Pom's at the Gabba.

    Cartwright, Maxwell , Head , little Boof need to make 100's and demand to be selected.
