From cricinfo:


2.05pm Steven Smith presented Cam Green his ODI cap. Big moment for the young batting allrounder.

Some pictures of the pitch coming in too - a few cracks around, but they're widely spaced-out, and it looks like they'll need to open up a lot more (it probably won't happen over the course of 100 overs) to have a major impact.

I’d be giving Marnus as much practice at 4 as possible. It’s where he’s going to be needed in the next World Cup. Don’t like having him open.

Wouldn't have switch hitters back in the days when wearing an onion on your belt was fashionable...

Maxwell scored 45 and 63 in his side’s two wins last weekend, with his entertaining innings lasting just 19 and 29 balls respectively.

The Victorian has combined power with creativity to hit nine boundaries and seven sixes - but some of his tactics didn’t sit well with ex-Test captain Ian Chappell.

Chappell believes switch-hitting - changing your stance from left to right or vice versa as the bowler completes his run-up - is an unfair advantage given bowling sides cannot defend against a late adjustment.

“I’d love the administrators who made those laws, I’d love them to explain to me how that’s fair,” he told Nine.

“I just can’t believe the players don’t arc up about it. If I’m captain, I’m going to take the ball myself and I’m going to tell the umpire I’m bowling right-arm over (the wicket), and then I’m going to run in and bowl around.

“Obviously the umpire’s going to complain and I’m going to say ‘well, you stop him doing something I think is totally unfair and I’ll stop doing something unfair’.”

Can Langer please stop being competent? Why am I intrigued to watch an ODI against India where our bowling attack is Hazlewood, Abbott, Zampa, Henriques, Green, Agar, and Maxwell?

India are a better chance of winning batting first and Cummins out of the attack, Starc out hurts their chances though.

Still see him as having bowling as his long suit
