Favourites for the Sheffield Shield?
The QLD Bulls as title holders would have to start favorites. With runners up Tasmanian Tigers second favored. The South Aussies always aquit themselves well as they are strong with bat and ball. Flame haired Lloyd Pope has been selected by the Redbacks. Big wraps on this kid.

Live stream about to start the new season of red ball cricket for this tragic.

There is usually something in these early season decks for the quicks. The autumn wet may juice em up even further.

I wanna see blokes batting time and putting up their names for July's Ashes.

Why doesnt CA every think outside the box? With an Ashes this year why not use the Duke ball at the start of the Shield season as well. There are always some green decks this time of the year. Combine this with the moving Duke and that is a challenge for even the best techniques.

Six teenagers could be in action for their states today with Shield debuts. All five potential debutants featured in the Australia U19 side that reached the final of this year's U19 World Cup in New Zealand. The most exciting imho is Blues right hander Jason Sangha. Much has been written about this kid since he burst onto the scene while still at school. He scored a century at 16 years of age in an U19 overseas match and was the youngest batsman since the "little master" Sachin Tendulkar to post a ton against a visiting English touring side. The other babies are Max Wright, Nathan McSweeney (Bulls), plus Redbacks leggie Loyd Pope and Blues rookie all rounder Jack Edwards. He must not bat anywhere above #7 in my view as there is work to be done on his technique.

I think that is actually a really good idea. If we use a Duke ball and ask the curators to prepare slightly greener, softer pitches than surely we will be better off for the Ashes.

It'd be good to see the Duke ball swing in Australia . Unfortunately, CA probably has a big money deal with Kookaburra and money talks along with Kookaburra being manufactured locally. The bigger issue for Shield Cricket are the dead flat pitches across the nation :( .
