Australia vs India Warm up (From Australian point of View)


It's always tough coming up against India with the amount of players at their disposal and the pitch today looked like it was not going to be kind to the batsman. 1 New debutant and 2 who have yet to play in the warmups joined todays roster taking us up to 24 trialed players thus far for this warmup series. Fantastic effort by all players so far making James and my job hard on final selections. Bob Ward the future Samlant of the team got the honour of recieving his baggy green and played well for his 2 wickets and 20 odd runs on a low scoring pitch.


Indian Innings

On a wicket that offered amazing swinging conditions India were in trouble almost from the start losing quick wickets with resident swing bowler Ridout having his best game with the ball yet taking 3 wickets, with great support from the other bowlers including a very economical bowling effort from Scott is only his 2nd ODI game for Australia. Indian Keeper/Captains half century gave India a fighting chance when India looked like they'd barely make 100 with some great late order hitting giving the Indian bowlers something to defend setting 142 needed for victory which is defendible in these conditions if India bowl well.

Australian Innings

Ward on debut joins veteran Potok at the crease and both set about slowly seeing off the new ball and trying to steal as many runs as possible as they were always going to be hard to come by. This was followed by a bit of a top order collapse with Wyndham and Laker not performing at their best but the innings was brought back in line with some aggressive hitting by Glenister before geting out and allowing Wordsworth and Wicket Keeper Hartrup the opportunity to close out the innings with overs to spare.

Next we take on the old foe England which is always a tough match, We'll check the conditions over closely and see who deserves this rare chance to play against a top team from our mix of players. A strong individual performance against England could go a long way towards world cup squad entry.

Two hundreds in the same day....in games that happen at different times, but both he got to bat first. Shorten is just that good 8-) Even was the most economical for SA with the ball today, shame the rest of the bowlers let him down :P ;) :mrgreen:

Meanwhile Zim racked up a second win from as many games, Donda again impressing as did Jacques and Bell with the ball. Maarten was simply Maarten, and good to see a much better performance from Mphazima. Only took one wicket, but kept the screws on for the most part which is all we ask for. Yeye dominated the response, as Lindley's form continues to raise concerns with the world cup on the horizon. Though the rest of the batting was solid, no-one else really stood out as the captain and Manzini lead the boys home after the game was set-up by the bowlers already mentioned. Pakistan is a huge scalp for us, though we're hoping for a Blose or the like to really take one of their opportunities by the scruff of the neck here and demand Cup selection.

24 Aussies have taken part in the warmups so far and another debutant coming in against England. James and I have been very impressed with most players and it's going to be really tough to pick a final 15

Australia vs England (From an Australian point of View)

Coming up against arguably the strongest team in stumped on paper it was always going to be a tough game, even as a warm up it's always nice to get a W against England but today was once again not Australias day.


Australian Innings


Sent into bat on a wicket that heavily favoured pace bowlers the two openers including debutant Vincent cautiously put together a good opening stand before England fought back and ripped through the rest of the top order with only Bowling allrounder Melville providing runs in the middle order with a small cameo from Hartrup. Certainly the 3 batsman who fired against a strong opposition on a tricky pitch have made a strong case for selection in the WC team.


England Innings


Set 183 for victory Australia would need to bowl well to get a strong England batting line up out but the pitch did offer assistance, although our pace attack is still developing it was good to see all bowlers get a wicket so a team effort was used against England with no one really dominating the bowling. Scott and Bowden's high fielding contributed to some runouts in the field as well which is always a nice bonus to getting extra wickets. It did come down the wire and the bowlers should be proud for putting up a valiant attempt to defend such a small total and this will go a long way towards selection in the WC.


With NZ next and our first loss of the warmups, it brings an opportunity for more players to get their chance at selection with now 25 players having played. As much as losing sucks it definitely makes you take notice of the holes in the team and NZ will be an opporunity to attempt to fill those gaps. Also want to congratulate Zimbabwe on a great run this season for a team considered a minnow a really impressive performance and we look forward to coming up against you in the first offical match of the WC.

New Zealand vs Australia (From an Australian perspective)

Today was the chance to come back strong after losing to England and a chance for all our spin bowler prospects to have a go and make a case for entry into the world cup 15. A few batsman who have only had one game to show what they can do so far were also given an opportunity today.

New Zealand Innings

With the spin attack in full force 4 players possibly playing for 2-3 spots it was possibly the last opportunity for some players to put their hand up for selection in the world cup. So they had to make it count. New Zealands top order all contributed runs and Australia didn't really dominate the ball at any point. Smee was able to keep things fairly tidy and Bristow taking 2 wickets might be the pick of the bowlers however. This did make a good contest and a great challenge and test of a developing batting line up for Australia.


Australian Innings


Chasing what you could consider a slightly above average score for the pitch the batsman had their work cut out for them however we did come prepared with 3 allrounders so the batting was deep keeping us in the chase. It was Austin on his 2nd game of the warmups who really played a sensible and composed innings to get a rare century and has really made our job harder with a knock that really kept us in the fight the entire innings. This knock was not in vein either as Allrounders Smee and Wicketkeeper Hartrup had one of the strongest finishes we've ever had with Smee being touted the new Samlant by fans. I think Smee can start packing for England at the very least.
