If i was to pick a 2nd 11 team to replace the team from this tour because they had all died of food poisining or something, my team would be.
1. Cowan
2. Burns
3. Bailey(c)
4. Klinger
5. Head
6. Cartwright
7. Nevill
8. Pattinson
9. Behrendorf
10. Holland
11. Sayers.
But that side is only a short term fix and that is not the point about Aus A. Aus A is about developing players for the medium to long term.
Nothing organised yet as far as i know Baggers, only speculating on possibilities.

Yes Baggers we have done the reserve side.

Can't bring Hartley out of retirement, the guy just ordered a 77-inch OLED TV, just mention Warner's name and get 25% off. Happy retirement to him, his hands will love him for it.

Mick are you talking about Arjun Nair the 19 year old with 4 games under his belt with a bowling average of 77 and a batting average of 15. Or is there someone else named Nair. Arjun is already in the NPS last year, I don't know if his continued selection in the place of another is warranted but maybe? Correct me if I am wrong but there are only like 20 positions available aren't there in NPS and aren't they supposed to be U19. Arjun Nair is out if that is the case.

Last years NPS squad played a quadrangler series against Aus A, SA A & India A, so they got some international experience. From that squad 2 players have made their test debut (Renshaw, Cartwright) 1 other player is in the tour squad (Swepson) 1 player has played ODI(Heazlet) and only 1 has yet to make his State debut (Hinchcliffe). Not a bad strike rate :hatsoff: to the people who picked them.
I would like to see the ICC come up with a U22 WC, to big a jump from U19 to International Cricket.

Good idea Mick. Agree too big a jump from U19. Hinchcliffe a chinaman who bats.. so few of them, last Bevan, Katich?

My CAX12 2017 MC. (in no part order)

Bancroft
Sangha
Heazlett
Green
McDermott
Grant
Nair
Hinchcliffe
Moody
Weatherald
Wildermuth
Turner.
Others in frame. Hughes, K Smith, Labuchagne, Milenko, Valente, Dwarshuis, Wes Agar.

There is no age restriction on the NPS Squad Mike, most will be aged 18-22 or so, its a 3 month course, so they must have left school.
Hilton Cartwright was the star of last years squad and he is 24. Mike we are talking about a 19yo spinner in Nair, so still very young for his craft, personally i have to admit he hasn't impressed me much the few times i have seen him. It will come down to how much depth in spin bowling talent there is comming through. A lot of the squad will be on State Rookie contracts.
The NPS Squad i think is put together with a lot of help from the state coaches and it will come down to, will 3 months at the high performance centre advance this players career, yes many of them will be in the U/19 squad but not all.

I don't mind leaving Cartwright out for India as a spin bowling all rounder is the better option, and pointless undermining his confidence, but why take M Marsh? If Cartwright doesn't come back into the side for the first Ashes test and they go back to M Marsh, then selectors have to take the blame solely and lose their lucrative jobs. I'd do their jobs for all expense paid travel and a lousy $100.00 a week. Just sit on sites like these it's not hard to see common denominators in theoretical team selections. Easy money!

Mike the NPS or CAX1 squads are mostly picked on promise and underage performances..some simply the old "gut feel". Sometimes the selectors get it correct sometimes not. The object is to expose them to superior opposition which is why I am all for the CAX1 sides in the Matador Cup plus the NPS squad picked for A tours. Greg Chappell..our former Pathways guru has done a good job with his youth policy. If Jason Sangha has left school he should be one of this years NPS scholars.
Agree Mike with CA team of year. Henriques is the only question mark for me. Bailey would be my skipper. Will Somerville must have been on the short list.

For the no 6 spot at present it will come down to what Maxwell does between now and then, secured his spot through to Bangladesh at least, then we will see.
What spin bowling Allrounder? Agar is not a no 6 and it appears Maxwell is nothing but a net bowler now.
Baggers no way they could name Bailey as skipper of the Team of the year, Tassie only won one match, Henriques has done a very good job, getting NSW within 6 runs of the Final, despite having a popgun pace attack most of the season.

What I thought about NPS, more for those that aren't on the state contracts and have potential for development, those that the states were sorry but no places left. So you're saying there are no NPS financial contracts, they are just recommended by states for a 3 month training program. Maybe they should offer financial contracts and take the pressure off states, because let's be honest selections will always have bias to certain individuals. It's nature. Speaking of which how is Sutherland's boy going?

I will join you on the panel mate. Being retired I could use the $100 bucks and watching my fave sport free.

Mick my beef with henriques is not his captaincy. Did skipper the U19s two seasons on the trot. It is with his consistency.. or lack of. His big run tally was inflated by his one knock of 265(from memory) on a belter. In between were plenty of lowish scores. George has a proven track record as a limited overs skipper. That is what he would be picked for from now on if at all.

Exactly what we posted yesterday, except Nevill instead Hartley as expected by cricket.com. Turner and Wildermuth both included. They probably been following this site saves them work. Cricket.com is watching :bts:

Don't know if performance at U19 level is that big a factor Baggers, it will be more about the degree of talent the player posseses.
Sommerville had a good summer but Hollands was better, bit of a forgotten man.
One player who has had a bit of a breakout Shield Season is Aaron Finch, needs to score 40 runs in the Final to get to 500 for the season from 7 games. Now has his FC average up to a more respectable 36.

Mick you sure about the state coach involvement of the selection of NPS scholars? I can see no reference to this. May have been the case in the past. From what I am reading the CA National Talent Pathway team now appoints the scholars. I suspect on the strength of their underage performance ..namely U17,U19 nationals. Disagree Mick. Under 19 performances are a very important yardstick to youth rep selection.

Under 19 performances are a very important yardstick to youth rep selection.

State Coaches only in an advisery role, the Talent Pathway team would talk to the Coaches and probably get recommendations from them. Don't forget the State Rookies spend 8-9 months of the year within the State Coaching setup and only 3-4 months with the NPS and U19 squads so why wouldn't the team be talking to the State Coaches, they are the guys who spend the most time with them. The Team would go to matches, attend State trg sessions where they will talk to the Coaching staff and things like work ethic and attitude will be a big part of their choices.
As Mike said there is only about 20 NPS spots open a year so a lot of it will be judgement calls and it's not the 20 best players but a percentage wil be batsman, Allrounders, keepers, Pace & Spin bowlers. U17 & U19 Nationals only take up a small part of a players season. Baggers there is a difference between picking the best U19 team and picking the NPS Squad, to some degree the U19 squad is about winning the 2018 U19 WC, picking the NPS Squad is about winning the 2023 WC and Ashes series in the early 2020s. It costs a fair bit to put a kid through the NPS Course each year, they need to get it right it's about producing the next Ponting, Warne, Lillee or Gilchrist not about producing the next Clinton Peake.

Fawad Alam? You've got your Fawads mixed up Misty. Its the Pakistan born, Australian naturalised leg spinner Fawad AHMED in the Victorian side, he's actually played T20s for Australia and was a member of the 2015 touring side to England.

Arjun is a match winner. Took 6 in the final of the U19 National Championships two years ago at 17 years of age to win NSW the title.

Took an 8for in a recent Sydney PC match plus 6/35 in a state second X1 game. Has looked competent with bat and ball in few chances for the NSW BLues first X1. He is still not quite 19. In years to come Arjun will be MAKING history not BE history.

Not sure where to put this but I'll try here as the people most interested are big users of this thread.
An Australia U19 side has been announced for a 6 match series against a Sri Lanka U19 team. Inclued in the Australian squad are.
Austin Waugh (son of Steve) who looks to have inherited all the family talent.
Jason Sangha a very highly rated young Batsman.
Will Sutherland (son of CA boss James) a promising Allrounder.
Max Bryant, Jack Edwards, Zach Evans, Ryan Hackney, Ryan Hadley, Lewin Maladay, Johnathon Merlo, Mitchell Perry, Lloyd Pope, Mathew Spoors, Param Uppal, Harrison Wood.
They will be coached by Mathew Elliott & Ryan Harris.
Its a young side average age is 17, with a view to next years WC in NZ and all reports are they are a very talented group.
There is one 3 day match and 5 one dayers all to be played in Tassie and live streamed on Cricket.com (Australia)

You beat me to it Mick. Pretty good when you are the son of the cricket supremo in getting a leg up. In all seriousness Will Sutherland earned his spot with a strong showing in the U19 nationals. This is an exciting squad Mick. Not sure Austin Waugh is quite ready for this elevation. Surprised that Warrior rookie Cameron Green is not in squad. Will be interesting to see Jack Edwards when he stops growing. He is already a hulking lad and is still only 16..

WA can feel hard done by with the a solitary rep as, after all, they are the reigning National Under 19 champions. How is star of the U19 final and recent Warriors debutant Cameron Green not in this squad? That is a real mystery. Will be a good hit out for our boys before crossing the ditch next February for the WC.

Another that could have got the nod is Blues U17 and CAX1(U19) keeper Baxter Holt. The 17 year old was the leading keeper at the U19s. The chosen keeper for the Sri Lanka series Lewin Maladay is already 19 so will be ineligible for the WC.

Like any side picked, there's always going to be, he should be in the squad, he shouldn't be. They maybe unavailable through injury or other priorities. I would suspect going on the ages of this squad at least 1/4 to 1/3 will be doing their HSC this year, thats their 1st priority, or should be.

Like any side picked, there's always going to be, he should be in the squad, he shouldn't be. They maybe unavailable through injury or other priorities. I would suspect going on the ages of this squad at least 1/4 to 1/3 will be doing their HSC this year, thats their 1st priority, or should be.

Could be Green was not picked because his dislocated knee is still giving him pain. Evidently he injured the knee in the latter stages of the Warriors Shield game against the Bushies. That did not stop the tyro belting James Pattinson for three maximums and taking three wickets. This kid is a serious prospect.

Hats off to CA for live streaming it. HSC is months off Mick. This series means no more than 3 weeks away from school. As far as I know Jason Sangha is in his last school year. He has been picked. Yes injury like that of Cameron Green will come into it. Just making conversation to keep the thread alive.

Kane Richardson is the unlucky quick to miss the final. Was injured last match so he could still be carrying some pain. While the Bushies have chosen two spinner. the Redbacks have only Zampa..relying instead on their famed pace attack. Vics have won the toss and are batting. Go the Redbacks :popcorn:

The Alice deck looks a touch green. Could be the reason the Redbacks left out a spinner for a paceman. No early movement with the ball coming on evenly.

Lucky you. No Australian broadcaster bothers to telecast the SS final. Fox used to. We only get an internet live stream.. better than nothing I suppose.

Bushies are without loss after 13 overs. No assistance from the new Dukes which will disappoint the Redback attack.

Victoria are going to win this so easily.
They'll bat SA out of the game, in any case.

Marcus Harris looking dangerous. Just spanked Zampa for a glorious maximum.

Have to agree. The Vics only have to draw. This match is looking like a carbon copy of last year. A total yawn fest that was. Bushies batted and batted and killed the contest.

It is hot in The Alice so this pitch is going to bake and that green will disappear. Then it will become one huge batting belter. I can see one of these two getting a big ton. Toss was vital.

Cant believe Victoria dont have an alternative venue in Melbourne.
They seem to prefer to take it to these baked roads than risk a low scoring match on a Melbourne pudding pitch

Harris tons up. Dean not far behind. This score could be a anything.

0/220 off 60 overs, can't complain about that run rate.

Chadd Sayers is chipping away here. Now has two Bushie scalps.

3/322 in 90 overs, can't accuse Vics of grinding out a draw Baggers.

I see them batting for another day and a half if able.. that is grinding your opposition into the dust. Redbacks did not help themselves yesterday droppping three vital catches. Worrell in the slips is a mystery?

What a waste of natural talent Cameron White has been. Has just lacked consistency against the red ball. That cover drive off a Sayers late outswinger was top shelf. :roll:

Reckon Alex Carey just demonstrated with a screamer of a catch why he is on the short list to be our next national keeper. I have him behind only Nevill and Whiteman.

Australia's premier swing bowler is putting on a show this morning with the Dukes ball. :bow:
