    Excuse me.
    Interstate franchises haven’t earned the right to chastise Vics. That’d mean we give a shit about those irrelevant clubs.

    Pipe down son

    Just seen the Maxwell dismissal. Poor bastard!

    Gotta laugh though, I have been involved in exactly the same style of run-out. I was the bowler. My team mates gave me so much shit over dropping the catch.

    How big was the fine?

    Were you maxed out?

    I actually saw worse- our spinner dropped a dolly onto the stumps and ran out the opposition batsmen as he was laughing too hard at his mate getting out.

    I must admit I didn't like Maddo at all when he was at NSW. Given the nature of the score I take it this wicket is a road ?

    Yeah, it’s a pretty standard MCG wicket. Flat.

    When is the last time a side went into an MCG match without a front-line spinner?

    Ridiculous.

    All we need is Moody taking late wickets to keep a spot in the team. Don't rate.

    Remember that time when Hilton played tests. Back to his typical WA spudliness

    Cartwright's career Shield numbers, as we speak:

    Batting - 40.24 average (4 hundreds, 11 fifties, 5 ducks)
    Bowling - 54.50 average, 79.61 strike rate, 4.10 economy rate

    It's the idea that he is or should be an all-rounder that's the problem. Probably taken a lot of focus away from his batting.

    Interestingly, he's bowled just 11 overs in 5 1/2 Shield matches so far this season. WA is hardly struggling for bowling talent, so they don't really need him to bowl anyway, but perhaps both player and state have realised that he's just not a bowler.

    Interestingly, Stoinis' vast improvement as a bowler continues. He is becoming a genuine all-rounder.

    I didn't even know that Maddinson had changed states, and he opens with a strong century for Victoria. Has boosted his career Shield average from 32.02 to 34.15 with that one innings alone.

    Would be funny if it earned him a rapid re-call to the Test team, especially at ol' Finchy's expense.

    It’s amazing to think Mitch Marsh is in the Australian Test squad...

    Anyway was criticism of the MCG pitch a bit premature?
