Shame for Green, that definitely wasn't out.
However he still has a weakness to the straight full ball at the stumps. Hopefully he can rectify that technical deficiency over the course of the next couple of matches, or he may struggle in the Ashes.
Big scalp to get cheaply too as Tim Ward bats time.
Clint Hinchliffe What happened to this guy. Only given a solitary first class match for WA. Hardly sufficient time to impress or not impress. Went thru the CA pathway and from what I saw and read, he came across as a competent slow bowling all rounder. They are pretty rare in this country. Bowled 'chinamans' from memory and was a clean hitter.
I found this footage of Hinchliffe. Pretty impressive against the touring Poms.
Who would you have left out of WAs contract list for him to be given a contract?Then the selectors were blind. Did they not see the way he took apart the Poms in that tour game.
Just trawled thru his Premier Cricket record last two years for Mount Lawley. Well above average with bat and ball. Already this year he is his club's leading bat and bowler. Plus Mt Lawley is leading the ladder after three rounds thanks to Hinchliffe.
You prob have a better idea than I. Dont follow WA cricket closely. I follow the player. If it was a case of giving a contract to Darcy Short or Hinchliffe. I know who my money is on.Who would you have left out of WAs contract list for him to be given a contract?
Hope it aint back stress fractures. We have three young class cricketers, Pucovski, Green and Richardson and all have spent more time in a hospital than on the cricket field.Went off during the warm up with a back spasm
Lets hope only as a precaution. Yeh LNS took a decent sconning yesterday. When WA saw that he was not going to give away his wicket easily their pacers began peppering him with short stuff.. obviously to unsettle him. It worked but not before he had compiled the team's best score..Not likely to get any play today, the weather is pretty bad. In the meantime, LNS has been concussion subbed for Meredith.
Good news. He was removed as a precautionary measure then. I wanna see this bloke back fit and firing and putting pressure on Mitchell Starc. That ball with which he removed the hard to remove Tim Ward speaks volumes of his talent.Jhye involved in the warm-up.
