This pay dispute stand off is akin to the Gunfight at the OK Corrall. What damage will it do to Australian cricket? Is the Ashes in jeopardy now? Neither party, CA or the ACA is backing down from its stance. Bloody stubborness in my view. Only ones to suffer are the Test fringe players denied the chance to represent their country abroad. The only ones to benefit, and this is a good thing, are those in grassroots cricket.

Aussies lose in thriller but still in the WC battle.
England has ended the Southern Stars winning streak in a final over thriller overnite. England hero was all rounder Katherine Brunt who took vital wickets and hit an enterprising 45 when England needed some momentum.

The turning point came when young lef arm spinner Alex Hartley lured champion Meg Lanning down the pitch and was bowled. The Stars other champion Ellyse Perry gave the side hope with a spanking 70 while late order hitting from Blackwell, Healey and Ashleigh Gardner took the Stars close but it turned out a touch too little too late.

I would like to see Gardner moved up the order. She is a power hitter and should be the finisher at 5/6 not 8/9

Another awesome all round showing from Ellyse Perry puts Proteas to the sword. Is Perry in career best form? Hard to argue against.

Play School continues and meanwhile our players are missing vital preparation for the Ashes. Things will get decidedly worse in that respect if the Bangladesh tour is called off. Time to pull fingers out you lot and think of the game instead of your pockets.

Might not be a bad idea to continue the fight so that dispute remains unresolved, England don't tour for the Ashes, and Australia is saved the ignominy of a 0-5 defeat at home. :-)

Ok, I was just kidding - the Ashes are very dear to my heart and it would be a shame if the tour gets called off.
I still think the Aussies are the weaker side, though they might have a slight home advantage.
(Or rather, England will not have the home advantage of playing at home).

The Aussie attack will have 5-10 Kmh (3-7mph) of pace on the English Bowlers and that will be a big advantage in Australia, England still needs to find 3 top 5 Batsman to join Cook & Root. Jennings, Westley & Malan won't be sending to many tremours through the Aussie Camp. The biggest challenge for Australia will be keeping Englands very strong late middle order quite but if they are consistently comming in at 4/100 that will be a good place to start. Traditionally England have won in Australia on the back of Express Pace bowling are England hiding a Frank Tyson somwhere.

Dont you mean England "is saved the ignominy of a 0-5 defeat". Even our 2nd X1 would put up a good showing on home tracks. Plenty of talent going round in our Under 19 ranks too.

Well Westley might develop but I can see Jennings being superceeded by hameed and I don't see Malan continuing he's just an injury replacement.

But we don't have a dominating in your face aggressive top order batsman. Root is class but he's busy and cheeky and cook is excellent but not aggressive. Stokes and Bairstow are aggressive game changers with the bat but it would be nice to have a KP or Hayden type in the top four to bully a little.

I guess England doesn't breed bullies. Unless their from Yorkshire :D otherwise we have to import cockiness from South Africans with dual passports :P

We also have a slightly aging opening bowling pair and some questions about who is going to be the rest of our attack. Though if TRJ is a keeper that helps.

Moeen might get destroyed bowling in australia

Who is Malan injury replacing for?

Mick is making some good points. Tremlett was a huge factor supporting a younger and faster Jimmy Anderson in 2010/11. Tremlett was not so much fast as he is a giant of a man releasing the ball at a great height. But he had some decent heat.

The unknowns are Roland-Jones and Westley. Obviously Stokes will ride his luck - but in doing so he could jag a test.

But remember - Night tests will advantage the England bowling no end if it swings - but only Adelaide will be a night test?

Balance at the moment but I think they'd chuck balance and consider having woakes in or poach another batsman from somewhere. But if they do that it'll be another equally unknown factor.

Which still leaves England light on batting touring a country with a plethora of quick bowlers and bouncy wickets.

Ironically - Ballance may like flat n bouncy strayan pitches with little lateral movement.

With you completely Boycs. I have not been overly impressed by England at home this series. Yes they appear the better side now leading the series but they are not dominating proceedings like they did last time the Baggy Greens toured for instance. Inconsistent with both bat and ball.

I rate our boys every bit the equal of the Saffers so the England boys are underachieving in my view. Agree about your need for a top order bully such as KP or Mat the Bat. Stokes has to adopt that role as he does not have the technique to occupy for long periods. Aggression is his biggest weapon..

Jennings looks vulnerable against the quick full and moving ball . What happened to footwork. So many top line players today lack it. Downside of playing too much limited overs? Will Jimmy and Stuart be playing their last overseas series as frontliners come November?

James Pattinson has broken down again with a back injury. At 27 this is starting to look ominous for Pattinson, should have settled down by now.

Baggy, you're right. Jennings isn't moving jack at the crease. Looks terrible.

In terms of the bowling, once woakes comes back we'll have Anderson broad TRJ wood Jake ball Finn and woakes. Who will back up Jimmy and Stuart in the ashes first test? Is woakes going to slot back in replacing TRJ? What about Ben coad?

Heard of very few of these players.
- Peter George (he dismissed Sachin Tendulkar on his Test debut, didn't he? After Sachin got 213 or so).
- The name Mitch Swepson sounds familiar. He was on the India tour, but didn't get a game?
- Ben Cutting, of course. Noticed him during the IPL - good guy. Could be Australia's answer to Ben Stokes.
- Joe Burns. I thought he did reasonably well as opener for Australia. Why did they dump him? Or was he injured?

Rest are all new names. And what's with the fancy names like Labuschagne, Prestwidge, Wildermuth, Truloff....

Whatever happened to good old names like Smith, Jones, Johnson, Jackson, Wilson? :-)

Joe Burns is pretty crap is why
he did okay against India in a dead rubber when they were demoralised in Australia

Labuschagne, Wildermuth...probably South Africans...maybe Truloff too
there's a mass exodus to Australia

Labuschagne, Nesser are bouth Saffers, don't know about Truloff, get use to it Australia is changing, we are seeing more and more kids with multicultural backgrounds in Australian Cricket. Prestwidge is not a typical Australian Cricket name? His father Scott only played 55 matches for Qld between 91 & 01.

Sam Whiteman has fallen to the same problem that derailed Tim Paines career, a broken Finger that won't heal. Now opens a spot for young Josh Inglis who has shown enough that Whitemans future at WA is not a certainty.

I wonder how long it will take Coulter-Nile to break down again.
In other news Chris Lynn has retired from all Cricket except T20, probably a good idea, his Shoulder wont stand up to anything longer..
The Aussies have arrived in Bangladesh for there 2 Test tour, going to be a tough tour. The Bangladeshis will produce typical Sub Continent Wickets and have a good Spin attack.

Yes Mick NCN has been cursed by injury. He, Pat Cummins and James Pattinson. Three pretty decent bowlers that trio.

Pleased that Jason Behrendorff will finally wear Aussie colors. Surprised that Dan Christian has been brought back into the fold even tho I have pushed his barrow for many years. I could not be happier for Tim Paine..how he has deserved another shot at the big time.

I had not read that Chris Lynn has retired from all forms bar the shorter version . Lynnsanity will now be a T20 gun for hire...if he can stay on the paddock.

This year's Sheffield Shield will allow concussion substitutes after the International Cricket Council confirmed a proposal to trial the measure for the next two years.

The Shield will be the first first-class competition to introduce the measure following its introduction into Cricket Australia-run competitions such as the domestic one-day cup and KFC Big Bash League last summer.

A successful trial will pave the way for the policy to be introduced at Test level for the 2019-20 summer.

Hi Misty. What happened to your avatar? You beat me to the punch on the new concussion trial in the 2018 Shield. Whether India will win the ODI component of the tour is debatable. I am pleased with the squad CA has picked to take on your boys so am expecting a close contest.

Usman Khawaja and Ashton Agar appear likely to don the baggy green when Australia take on Bangladesh in the first test next week says skipper Steven Smith..

Astoundingly Khawaja has not played any first class cricket since January after the Aussie A tour was called off due to the pay dispute in July..so he is bound to be full of rust.

While they are wary of the threat posed by Bangladesh in their home conditions, Smith's men will also take heart from their own fighting performances in India in March.

During that series, Khawaja was overlooked for Shaun Marsh, while Agar sat out for fellow left-armer Steve O'Keefe who collected 12 pegs and won us the first Test in Pune. That was SOK's only joy for the tour and he has now lost favour with selectors while Marsh has also been left out of the Bangla squad.

Likely X1: Warner, Renshaw, Smith (c), Khawaja, Handscomb, Cartwright/Maxwell, Wade, Hazlewood, Cummins, Lyon, Agar.

Bat Agar at 11 and see if he can get a 100 this time, the only selection quandry i can see for the 1st Test is Maxy v Hoss for the No 6 spot.
Good news for Aussie fans, Fox Sports has announced it will telecast the 2 Banga Tests.

Ah so Agar hasn't vanished completely into the night, tried and discarded. How have his shield figures been?

A further two Shield rounds will be played prior to the start of the Ashes CA has announced. That is music to the ears. Now all we have to hear is that CA will use these two rounds as vital red ball prep by our baggy greens for the Ashes instead of useless limited overs matches.

No Boycs. Agar has been very much on the CA radar. Was chosen for the abandoned A tour in July over SOK(OKeefe) His bowling has improved markedly to probably now be his stronger suit. He would admit that he needs to bring down his economy to be considered test class. His litmus test will come with the two Bangla tests if picked.

Who are your two spinners? Why will Cartwright be benched? He is a more solid bat than Maxwell. Maxie's part time offies will not be missed.

Only 19 at the time, not ready for Test Cricket as a bowler, at 23 still a very young Spinner but has improved steadily.
