Well, the Matador Cup came and went, time for some real cricket. Some really interesting stories coming out today, and it's only day 1!!
1: Glenn Maxwell not named
2: The Duke ball will be used in the 2nd half of the season, not the Kookaburra (This includes a D/N Round with a ball that is a much lighter pink than the one we use)
NSW made 327/7 and declared, already taken Hemphrey's wicket so it's Starc and Hazlewood bowling to Burns and Khawaja
7 NSW players are test players (Any surprise?) and the other 4 are Cowan, Patterson, Copeland and Carters. That team is going to be seriously weak when 6 of them are playing tests (I assume Moises will be dropped).
Victoria are doing well against Tasmania in what is the battle for the 3rd seam bowling spot (Siddle vs Bird) at 331/4.
WA are batting first against SA and are 173/3, Marsh and Klinger both made 50s.
And the Domestic Sixes season is back for a 2nd time (Cricket's version of our XVs comps) check out this link
