WTF? Only one player from NSW in the current Australian ODI squad playing in England. We're fucked




No Smith & Warner (obviously), no Starc, Cummins or Hazelwood. Nearly a completely new side. Happy to see a lot of the new blokes get a go at the top level and hope that they will be competitive.



On another note, I have great respect for the BBC Sports website which I read a lot but they dropped a clanger (well to us Aussies it is) when reporting on the current ODI series between England & Australia



From the article


Quote:

The Baggy Greens return to international action for the first time since the controversy against South Africa in March when they start a five-match one-day series against England at The Oval on Wednesday, looking to rebuild their battered reputation.


Full article is here



Trust me, there will not be a Baggy Green seen in this series. It is worn only in Test matches

Default England v. Australia 4th ODI Emirates Riverside

Not a bad effort by the Aussies, and they added 2 more runs, to end a mere 171 runs short of Englands first dig in the previous ODI at Trent Bridge.



Impressive start by England.



Not looking good for the Aussies.



The Fat Lass sat next to me was clearing her throat at this point.



Whitewash should be completed tomorrow. If anybody wants any shite photos taken, feel free to PM me. Very reasonable rates (2,000 baht ST, 3,500 baht LT. No BF.)

Whitewash completed today, 5-0 to England. Made hard work of the run chase though. England better side throughout, but the Aussies got on a losing streak and couldn't shake it off. Not all bad for Australia though that Billy Stanlake looks really good, could develop into a top class opening bowler.

First off, well done to the Poms. They beat us fair and square. Pun intended. The first whitewash of any Australian cricket team by an Eglish team it seems. It only took 140+ years


Now they have to do it against a full-strength India in the ODI's and Tests in the coming weeks plus of course, the World Cup next year. Interesting times ahead for them.


On the flip side, this was an experimental Australian ODI squad made up of many fringe players who performed well in the last Big Bash in Australia and the recent IPL. Good to see them getting a go but I doubt many of this lot will be in the squad for the WC next year.

I thing Bairstow hit peak form this past few weeks and it remains to be seen if he can repeat it in the future. Then Roy and Hales weighed in which set things up for England. I don't think the Aussies were as bad as the 5-0 scoreline suggests, its just they couldn't get any consistency together and it all went tits up from there.
