Pope might do better if he had a captain that didn't continually mistreat him. His confidence must be rock bottom.

I have no idea why Head rates his own bowling so highly, the stats speak for themselves. Give it up.
18 pointless overs

Pope Bowled 7 overs for the day as a front line spinner

20 Shield tons for Shaun Marsh, 8 of them against the Redbacks including three in three games at Karen Rolton Oval
Came in here to post this, I always feel like Shaun Marsh dominates Shield cricket but it's probably just my perception as a Redbacks fan.

I seriously cbf even watching this stuff anymore, same sh*t different year, hate these games at suburban grounds. Well not really suburban but you get what I mean.

Someone at CA needs to sit Head down and force him to watch his nude ‘off spin’ on repeat until he gets the picture. Shocking bowler and to bowl 18 on Day 1 is just letting the opposition play themselves into the game under no pressure
Better than Pope

Surely there's some sort of simulator where he can face himself bowling, that should get the message home. Playing 2 dud spinners and him is a recipe for disaster. Doggett/Mennie can't come back quick enough.

Philippe adding hurt to the Spiders. This guy's timing of his drives is exquisite.

Good plan by Grant foiled with short leg spilling a tuffie.

Pope gets a couple on lunch. Trav must have remembered that he was playing

I'm always reluctant to label a pitch a road until the Redbacks have batted so I won't

Hilarious passage there

Rocchicioli edges to slip off Pope, dropped.

Batters take off for a single. Kerber at point sprints in and falls flat on his back trying to pick up the ball. Wild throw. Rocchicioli falls over trying to make his ground. Safe.

Goes down as a single

Hopeless running again from Weatherald.

Should have been an easy single.

Didn't back up, slow taking off. Then stuffed up his bat slide so that it stuck in the ground short of the crease. Luckily the throw missed.

Just an absolute amateur. No awareness, concentration or care and he's been like this for years.
