Who were the favourites to win the JLT Cup going in to the tournament? Western Australia look like they're on a roll atm.

Yes the Western boys were pre series favs. Tassie has hit some form while the The Vics are also looking strong. Dont write off the Sth Oz Redbacks.

:cheersJack Edwards has become the youngest century maker in ODD history.

I still maintain.. as Kim Hughes does.. that he has a diabolical stance. The Blues batting coach has some work to do with him.:rolleyes

Moie and Edwards get the Blues home for a rare win. They should have played more games here at this picturesque Drummoyne ground.

Mike awaiting your comments:

Queenslander Mike said: The real problem is that the current crop of players are lazy. During the off season they put their feet up watching their cartoons. In the past the players went to England to develop skills they were dedicated to cricket. Remember Matt Hayden paying his own way to India to learn how to play spin, and he played well in India because of it. He was dedicated. His fitness training was dedicated. He spent hours in the nets with a bowling machine. It was called dedication to a chosen career, and this is where the real problem lies

Spot on Mike. Not only the players are lazy but the coaches as well. Or are our young kids being overcoached? CA need to get more pro active and insist up and comers cut their teeth in Premier Cricket for at least three years before being considered for the nationals. Then they should do as you say hone their skills in other conditions by playing League Cricket in the old dart in the off season. Up til a couple of years ago CA sent three NPS boys to England to play with the Hampshire Academy.. I think it was.. I do praise CA for sending our best under 17/18s to play in a sub continental competition for several weeks every year. This will pay off in the years ahead. Over the past few seasons our NPS squad have spent time at the MRF Academy in India. So some good things are being done.
I did say one flaw.. but imho .. a glaring one.

Queenslander Mike said: Secondly I really don't see this generally, this is more a NSW thing. Last year Qld Bulls with a lot of junior players showed good technique with the bat, and ultimately a bunch of kids won the shield.
baggygreenman said:
Sam Heazlett is a prime example of this Mike. Have Qld coaches gotten better and Blues coaches worse. Have Blues coaches lost the plot..forgotten the priorities..preparing our boys for the more lucrative T20 format rather than red ball cricket. Ask these kids, and like their older peers they will tell you the pinnacle of their careers will be to don the Baggy Green Test cap. I have no doubt about that.

Queenslander Mike said: As developing cricketers we all played limited overs format in our developing years, be it at school or weekend limited games.

That is my point. Too much influence of see ball hit ball is driven into the minds of these kids from an early age. Not how to bat time to keep your wicket intact. When I coached junior kids I tried to instill in them to not throw away their wicket with a rash shot when trying to settle into your innings. I was criticised by parents for killing the fun side for their precious Johnny.

How did we loose that? Queensland needs to look at its middle order for this next match.

The tournament needed something to give it a spark.

Is raining in Sydney so unlikely the prelim final between Blue and Vics will reach full 50 overs a side... that is if it is even played at all.

Haze back for the Blues. How does Larkin & SOK remain in this side? Ryan Gibson deserves another shot.

Just seen that Usman Qadir, son of the legendary Abdul Qadir, has been turning out for Western Australia in their last few games. Seems to be getting on alright he's registered some tidy figures so far with his legbreak.

In fact I've also come across an article that says he has declared his intent to play for Australia which is interesting.

Yes as long as any ideas to fast track him into the national side when he becomes eligible is not at the expence of a home grown tweaker... and Australia has several promising ones. Qadir has been playing here since 2012 evidently.. but only full time since 2016.[DOUBLEPOST=1538697871][/DOUBLEPOST]Why wasnt a reserve day put aside to cover for yesterdays washout betwen the Blues and the Vics. There are no JLT fixtures today. Baffling.

Namely Lloyd Pope I'm guessing? Who else is coming through the ranks?

I started following his career sporadically when he first started playing cricket as a 17 year old and for a while I thought he'd totally vanished until he made his JLT Cup debut. He's signed for Perth Scorchers too so he's slowly beginning to carve a foothold for himself down under by the looks of things.
