If Australia wins, I would experiment with the openers. It should have been 3-0 our way if our openers had scored runs.

Warner, Bancroft, Harris and Khawaja have failed so far. This has been a bowlers series so far with Smith being the only constant exception amongst both teams.

Is it time to bring back Lawry and Simpson?

Interesting question posted on cricket info. If you were picking a best team for the current Ashes series from both sides, which batsmen would you pick?

My team would be Smith, a keeper and nine bowlers.

My god, what’s going on?

 Where do we find some batsmen?

Thankfully we return to our flat tracks this summer so it may save some of them

Warner, Harris, Usman, Head, Bancroft & Marsh all looked well short of test class with the bat

James Pattinson charged over alleged homophobic slur during Sheffield Shield match

James Pattinson is alleged to have used a homophobic slur against a Queensland batsman in the recent Sheffield Shield match.

The incident, revealed exclusively in The Australian, means he will miss the first Test.

The Victorian quick was found guilty of a level two breach for personal abuse of a player during Victoria’s Sheffield Shield match against Queensland.

The quick will not contest the Level 2 charge for “Using language or gesture(s) that is seriously obscene, seriously offensive or of a seriously insulting nature to another Player or Player Support Personnel or any other third person during a Match.”

The code of conduct says Level 2 charges for abuse excludes usual angry exchanges that occurs but is reserved for “words or gestures” that are “seriously obscene” or give “serious offence” or “seriously insult”.

The Australian understands a frustrated Pattinson used a homophobic slur against former team mate Cameron Gannon but instantly apologised to the batsman who was a former team mate, but was still charged by umpires.

The immediate thing that occurred to me here was the difference in penalties handed out to James Pattinson and Israel Folau for effectively the same offense.

Pattinson gets one match. Folau is banned from Rugby Union (and possibly Rugby League) for life.

And Folau's slur wasn't personal. He was quoting St Pauls letter to the Galatians.

The duplicity is mind boggling.

This is one of the reasons I don't follow cricket any more. Too woke for me.

Pucovski and Maddinson return from mental health breaks

Test prospect Will Pucovski and Victorian teammate Nic Maddinson will return to the Sheffield Shield arena on Friday while veteran Glenn Maxwell continues his own battle with mental health issues.

Pucovski and Maddinson were granted medical clearance for the four-day MCG clash with NSW after they took indefinite leave earlier this month but there’s no timeline for the return of Maxwell.

The Australian white-ball star turned out for Fitzroy in the Premier League on the weekend but hasn’t trained with the Victoria side this week. Australia A batsman Maddinson also contributed a half-century for St Kilda in his outing while Pucovski, 21, didn’t play.

Bushrangers batsman Australian T20 captain Aaron Finch said he had spoken with Maxwell and believed his return would be a gradual process.

“Him having a hit-out for Fitzroy on the weekend was a really valuable step for him but he’s not training,” Finch said.

“He’s OK — I don’t want to speak for him but it probably took him a little bit more time than he thought to get back into it and no doubt it’s going to be a gradual process to get back, whether that’s next week or next month or next year.”

Finch said it was a learning process for all, including Maxwell who initially passed off the issues as tiredness.

“It’s not a hamstring injury or anything where you can treat the same way for everyone and everyone is learning,” Finch said.

“You have to be mindful of the player making the decision in their best interest and not trying to rush them back for a particular game or a defined date.”

Fast bowler James Pattinson has been named, subject to being released from Australia’s Test squad while Marcus Harris also returns having missed the last Shield match with Australia A duties.

Cricket Victoria general manager Cricket Shaun Graf welcomed the return of talented duo Maddinson and Pucovski.

“We are looking forward to having Nic and Will back playing for Victoria after receiving clearance from our medical staff,” Graf said.

“We’ll continue to support all our players through their return to play.”

Recent debutant Jake Fraser-McGurk (under 19 national championships) and Eamonn Vines have been omitted.

Victoria will be looking to register their first win of the Sheffield Shield competition, having played out a draw and three losses from the initial four rounds.

VIC: Peter Handscomb (c), Andrew Fekete, Aaron Finch, Sam Harper, Marcus Harris, Jon Holland, Nic Maddinson, James Pattinson, Will Pucovski, Matthew Short, Peter Siddle, Will Sutherland, Chris Tremain.

Four of the seven batted left-handed.

At least I have that in common with four of them.

Woke is an interesting term.

https://www.merriam-webster.com/words-at-play/woke-meaning-origin

In the old days, it used to be the rich or conservatives who could be described as this when they went on philanthropic ventures or spoke up.

Now it is very trendy to identify issues to be “woke” to. As a result people usually conservatives even though you have people like Obama also highlighting the inconsistency of some of the “woke” people.

I see many people and hopefully the names cricketers are not one of them use mental health as a tool to push / promote certain agendas or themselves. It makes a mockery of the genuine sufferers and as a doctor friend said, it clogs up the already chaotic heath system. He was tired of referring some people under shopping stress to psychologists and he works in a very affluent suburb where you need to be seen with new clothes.

I can't see how pulling out of games due toe mental issues can't help a player's career.

I think they should be helped not ridiculed.

Of course they should be helped but surely it’s a reflection on their suitability for selection

My experience tells me that mental toughness is what separates the good ones from the could’ve beens
