I'm sorry but did either Marsh play against India?   :nowink:

Probably why we lost. 

As far as I see it, the problem for selectors is that most of the main openers and high order batsman are making runs. 

I'd actually drop Finch and Warner and open with Shaun Marsh and Khawaja. 

But then Finch and Warner would also be hard done by. 

It's a bugger when you need some of your batsman to fail.

How the hell is Finch in this one day side and Sean Marsh not?

I agree Khawaja  is close to being dropped. Smith should then bat at three, then Maxwell at no 4. Whether Coulter Nile or Marsh takes Khawaja's place depends on whether they need another batsman or an all-rounder. Carey & Stoinis can both bat.
The  other night Maxwell was belting the ball over the place until he was run out by Khawaja not responding to Maxwell's call, Maxwell was filthy on Khawaja and last night Khawaja turned his back on the play and nearly ran Finch out. I doubt Khawaja is that popular with other players , IMO he is more suited to test cricket as he does not seem to have that "big hit " in him .

Oh we all know :bop:


Yes we all do.  It's exactly what I said and it's there for all to see.  If you can't read, that's your problem.

FZ, when you purely post about cricket and sports without the politics in the posts,  are pretty insightful.

I disagree with you in regards to Maxwell being number 4. He is like a Bevan who can score runs fast but is wasted if there is a collapse.

I agree regarding Smith being no 3 as he is the complete package. Khawaja should be 4 or dropped.

In regards to Lyons, quite strange how Australia have played him. The other countries have used their spinners really well while we are too reliant on our seamers.

England are in a quandary because next matches are against NZ and India. The big positive for them is their net run rate so they could sneak in the semis.

Bangers have India and Pakistan left so they will be hoping for England to lose both as they are 1 pt behind England and at least a win for them against their opponents.


Unfortunately Jeunes it isn't me who brings politics into sport.  Politics has always been in sport.


Politics are wide ranging.  Sport and controversy go hand in hand.  You can bury your head if you like.


I tend to like to discuss them.  But rest assured, I'm not the originator!


I do think Maxwell needs to come up the order IF we have a solid start.  I should have made that distinction.


I'd like to see him come in first drop if we get off to a start like we did against England. 


Smith can play the anchor role admirably - it suits his style.  I don't think Kwawaja is suited to 50 over cricket. 


Marsh could come in or even Coulter-Nile in his place.  They're both better in the field too.

Not true.  I said "he'd better make some runs."


He has and well done to him. 


Print what I said, not what you think I said and you'll do better.

You heard it here first.

Royal Warfare wins race six at Toowoomba number 4

Carries number 5 saddlecloth.

Unimageable is no 5 carries no 4 saddlecloth.

When will this stop !!

Stewards’ Report
QRIC/2016/3018 v1.01 Stewards Report
Queensland Racing Integrity Commission
Supplementary Stewards Report: From Toowoomba 11 May 2019
Date: 2 June 2019
Panel: R. Hitchener, E. Barron, J Childs
Queensland Racing Integrity Commission (QRIC) Stewards today concluded an inquiry into
the circumstances surrounding ROYAL WARFARE and UNIMAGINEABLE racing whilst
wearing the incorrect saddlecloth numbers in Race 6 at the Toowoomba Turf Club on 11
May 2019.
During the inquiry it was identified that upon weighing out App. M Savva (ROYAL
WARFARE) incorrectly identified the required saddlecloth for that runner and therefore
presented the incorrect saddlecloth to the Trainer Mr M Boland. Mr Boland advised the
inquiry when provided the saddle and saddlecloth by App. Savva he failed check that the
saddlecloth provided to him was the correct number.
It was further identified that Jockey M Palmer (UNIMAGINEABLE) was the last rider to weigh
out for this event, and therefore, as there was only one remaining saddlecloth for selection,
he took possession of this saddlecloth and presented it to that gelding’s trainer Mr B
Robinson without checking the number he had collected. Subsequently due to the earlier
failure of App. Savva this led to the incorrect saddlecloth being provided to Mr Robinson. Mr
Robinson advised the inquiry when provided the saddle and saddlecloth by Jockey Palmer
he failed check that the saddlecloth provided to him was the correct number.
After giving consideration to the evidence provided by all parties the following penalties were
applied for negligence under AR 227 which led to a breach AR207 which requires that every
horse running in a race must carry a saddlecloth bearing the number which corresponds with
the number of the horse in the race bookApp. M Savva- $100.
Jockey. M Palmer- $100.
Trainer M. Boland- Reprimand.
Trainer B Robinson- Reprimand.
A review into the failure of Stewards to identify the error at the horse check in point has been
provided to the Chief Steward for consideration.


ENDS

Explanations show extreme carelessness on the part of the connections....but the stewards who are responsible for checking runners before they go onto the track were seriously deficient  to not pick up on theses discrepancies.....I think .there might be  another post on this somewhere where the racecaller picked up the error.
