Huge efforts from Whiteman and Hardie, well done WA.

Voges has stood up in the face of our criticism and really delivered this year, full credit to him.

I think the best thing about the win is that Marsh didn’t have a great game with the bat but we had other players stand up. Not worried about the batting now when Marsh does decide to retire.

Congrats WA champions in all formats this season. Sam Whiteman MOM. Could really have shared that honor with Aaron Hardie. Both outstanding. Player of the Year was shared tho, between Henry Hunt and Travis Dean.

SOS Marsh did not announce his retirement. Expected him to.

Australian Cricket relies on six teams producing hardened players capable of playing Test Cricket. But as we all know the Shield is more than that.

It is great WA has rejoined the Shield party. Maybe next season the Jellybacks will find some gelatin and make and maybe win a Final.

We need all States fit and firing to keep this as a primo Comp.

Have been talking up Sam Whiteman for some time. Now he has shown the world that he is the real deal and probably Test material. He faced a mammoth 338 balls over multiple hours and did not offer a solitary chance. That is some feat of concentration. I dont believe he has left his run for a Baggy Green too late either as some are saying.

Unfortunately probably missed the boat with Street, Hunt and Ward coming through. Such an unfortunate thing with him, his keeping was elite

I would have Whiteman up there with those 3 and what they all do in the early shield games next season could decide who could make the next step as an Australian opener if there is a vacancy.

Betting Aaron Hardie felt peeved when the umps pulled the plug some 30 runs shy of his first Shield double hundred. Hardie has the tools to develop into one of Australia's few genuine all rounders.. ala Cameron Green and decades earlier Keith Miller.
Whiteman up there with those 3
What Sam offers that the other three dont is.. experience. He is a seasoned campaigner and still in his batting prime. He'd have a settling affect on say a Henry Hunt who is only in his third year of state cricket.

Just can’t see them going that route. Khawaja is there to guide the younger openers for a few years

I hope you never complained about the Pakistan pitches during the tests which were a minefield compared to the WACA.

No one to blame but you boys for this one, had the chance to get the bonus point with the asking rate and wickets in hand well within your grasp and rather baffingly they chose to drop anchor instead of chasing it. Get the bonus point and you would have forced WA to chase a result.
