Not one of the worst, THE worst decision ever. Does that umpire actually know the LBW law?

He couldn't seriously argue that he didn't play a shot to that could he?
Struck outside the line while playing a shot.

I'm not even convinced that the ball would have hit a 2nd set of wickets, let alone the off stump.

He was getting enough turn on the pitch to hit from there.

The bat is clearly well behind the pad when hit (and still coming down), maybe the umpire thought it was a 'fake' shot when he realised he was in trouble?

I think that's what the umpire thought, but he was clearly playing a defensive shot on the wrong line for the spin. That's allowed and isn't LBW

So the Redbacks have started their annual cull.

The question is, will they actually attract better talent ?
I don't think so and part of that unfortunately sits square on Dizzy. We had to show we were heading in the right direction. If I was advising someone I would only recommend a move to the Redbacks if they couldn't make the other states second X1.

Travis Head loses his CA contract..... Unbelievable
Wow... that will throw SACA planning into a tail spin

Now just have to fit our highest paid player in that we wouldn't have budgeted for

Mind you... the rest of the squad is worth about $1.50 so shouldn't be too hard I guess

Not too many specialist Test batsmen on that contract list now, yet Patto with a contract despite the bowling lineup barely changing over the last 3 years

Only 3 specialist batsmen.... not enough to pick a team!

Selector picking only 17 of 20 spots obviously want to fill the remaining positions based on form at the time.
