Some thoughts on Australia's line-up.

Top 6 (Haynes, Healy, Lanning, Perry, Mooney, Gardner) is set in stone barring injury.

Going with both Molineux and Wareham ought to be an easy decision considering Jonassen's absence, although losing Schutt might prompt a thought to bring in the seasoned option of Strano despite not being like-for-like.

The conundrums mainly lie with the remaining spots for pace bowlers. I suspect Carey and Sutherland will be the first two choices, the latter possibly being rotated with McGrath (who I think should play the Test ahead of both but won't). And then I guess they'll alternate between Vlaeminck and Darcie Brown like the NZ series (and, again, I think they should both be in the Test team but probably only one will be, at most).

Haven't given any thought to Maitlan Brown because I don't know how her comeback is travelling. And I wonder if Redmayne has been the one added as batting depth for the reasons I hope and agree with (that is, she deserves it) or if she's just been picked over Villani etc. for some trivial reason (being a left-hander, for instance).

Darlington somewhat and Campbell definitely not ready for the T20I team yet (or weren't, last time I saw them), much less the ODI team, though the plan to ease them both into the national set-up is perhaps sound. Nevertheless, there's no way I'd have left out/keep leaving out Heather Graham from an 18-player squad (even if JJ and Shoota were available).

Some big wraps on Stella Campbell. I recall we gave a 17/18 year old Holly Ferling a crack in a T20 WC. She was a sensation. Do same with Campbell selectors. Speaking of Ferling. She seems to have disappeared from the scene. I recall she had back trouble but that was several years ago.
I wouldn't say Ferling has disappeared, still useful in the Nash and Bash when on the park (which has been more often in the past few years than, say, Lauren Cheatle). But never the same after those injuries had piled up by her early-20s, the elbow probably being the biggest setback.

It was the 2013 ODI WC where she got her break, didn't get many favours when it came to the T20 team.

I could speculate about what India will bring to the table throughout this series but, to me, so many selection decisions seem to come from left-field that it'd mostly be too much of a wild guess.

Therefore, at least for now, here's a new commercial...



...which is a spin on what is apparently a classic from 30 years ago:

Nice grab by Moons.



Following on from my previous comment: It would have been reasonable to expect Rodrigues to be in India's starting ODI XI, but it looks like she didn't play today (nor did Kaur, though she's under an injury cloud). Instead India went with unknown-to-me Yastika Bhatia at 4, who did score 41.



Full scorecard and more vision will be up on cricket.com.au eventually, apparently.

EDIT: scorecard here

3-38 on debut tells me Campbell is more than ready Teen Wolf. Wow she is a big girl and hurls the ball at a decent speed. Pick her for the Test.
Why wasn't this match telecast, at the very least live streamed by CA.

We have a better all rounder than her, surely.
Surely I don't need to advance caution for extrapolating conclusions from limited figures/scores and highlights, nor what actually constitutes an international debut.

But what you might not know are the specifics for why I made that statement about Darlington and Campbell: The former was regarding her fitness; the latter regarding her composure under pressure and fielding; both because of consistency; neither because I doubt their ability to, for example, take wickets on their day.

And to elaborate on the second-half of the original comment about I made about them: The degree to which a player is deemed "ready" should not necessarily be the sole criteria for selection, perhaps especially in the circumstances of this Australian squad in this series.

Settle down. I am not being critical.
What part of my post gave you the impression that I'm anything but settled? It reads like pure clinical cricket talk to me.

Clearly you were being critical of Tahlia McGrath, and I'm pretty sure that's allowed. Were you making a good point about her though. I'm not so sure.

Campbell is only 19. Has not learnt composure under pressure yet.
Hasn't she? I included a "when I last saw them" disclaimer in my original assessment of Darlington and Campbell, which should indicate I'm aware of their age and what that may mean in terms of potential rapid development.

She is express pace
Is she? Not based on the speeds I've seen her clocked at.

But maybe she's found an extra yard for her top speed and stock ball in the last 6 months.

Take a squizz at the two minute hilite reel from the warm up match. She is express.. in female terms. Looks quicker than the injured girl. Quicker than Holly Ferling when she first came on the scene. Betting she is even quicker than Cathryn Fitzpatrick. Campbell is what Australian female cricket has been missing.. an X factor bowler.
Once again I'm not sure what gives you the impression that I wouldn't have already watched the highlights.

If you want to make big calls based on very little info, please do (and I welcome everybody else to do so as well). That said, this is a place for both opinions and spirited predictions as well as facts and reputable reports. Examples of the latter would be:
  • D. Brown, M. Brown, Perry and Vlaeminck have all been clocked at 125km/h, while the top recorded speed for Campbell and Sutherland to date is around 120km/h.
  • Campbell wouldn't have been included in the squad for this series if Belinda Vakarewa made herself available for selection.
If what you say about Campbell manifests over the next few weeks, or if it doesn't, all I've done is provide context for it.

Not surprising as a like-for-like for Carey (presumably). Beginning of the long international career I've been spruiking, albeit sooner than expected.



McGrath in as first change bowler likely, interestingly ahead of Sutherland who only got 3 overs in the practice match--perhaps not fully fit, idk.



Yastika over Rodrigues, Meghna Singh over Shikha Pandey the notable decisions there.

McGrath the weak link. @19.3 with bat a whopping @96 with ball from five ODI's. Prefer Sutherland as a like for like. I also reckon we have a better leg spinner than Wareham with Amanda- Jade Wellington. Wellington was too young when she last played internationals. She is now more mature and we all know it takes time for a leg spinner to hone their craft. If memory serves when she was about 18 Adam Gilchrist likened her to a young Shane Warne.

Not interested in what Campbell's previous speeds were. She now looks express. I will wait until I see the speed gun but betting, purely from the naked eye and experience from 30 yrs of watching cricket that she is consistently quicker than all our other quicks. The only prob I see with her and our other emerging pacers is keeping them on the park by avoiding the curse of all young bowlers.. back and other stress fractures, which allbut wrecked Holly Ferling's international career.

Jhulan Goswami . She has been around forever. Recall seeing her playing for India on our shores, must be well over a decade ago.

Intriguing match from here. 19 overs to go, India were fairly well positioned, but we've choked them right up and they've only the 6 in the sheds now. Could very well go either way.

Seemed like a weird choice when Brown still had an over and Darlington two. 225 is probably 10-15 more than I thought they would get with 10 overs to go.
Darlington having 2 left when she's your best death bowler is so stupid

Least getting 20 more means it won't be over in the 30th.
