He averaged 43 this year coming into the final.
That sounds like you've combined his scores in all three formats to get that score for this season.

He averages 31.86 with the willow in first-class cricket. That's why he's not in consideration to keep in Test cricket.

Um, no, I'm using his Shield stats from THIS YEAR. I capitalised that because it seems you missed that part.

If Victoria got that bonus point they could just have dropped anchor chasing whatever they are going to need to chase. Although the pitch looks dead I think thats got to do with WA just playing time. Victoria don't have a choice not to attack so with that will come chances for WA.

Also do WA just continue as they are going, get through the first hour, then go hard for 30 minutes so we get 2 cracks at a new ball or do we just keep batting and possibly just have the one new ball. Lead would be around 400 or so by then if that was the case.

Bat, bat, bat, bat. Why would we do anything else?

Massive respect boost for Whiteman and Hardie. A few years ago I thought Whiteman was due for a test debut then he fell into injury and form issues. Got to be a look-in now.

Hardie as well has shown enough grit to demonstrate he could be an international player.

Didn't realise we won the ODI domestic cup too - this could be a clean sweep of all 3 titles! Has that been done by a team since the BBL started a decade ago?

there are no other teams worthy
All credit to Whiteman.
Looks like the Shield is yours.
Oh well, we need more from Vic youth to develop.
MacKenzie Harvey and a few others need to develop some red ball cricket know how for the future.

Mack Harvey will be a white ball specialist. Technique not good enough for FC cricket IMO
