Some Shane Watson trivia...

After 11 tests and one innings:

Inn: 19
NO: 0
Runs: 497
HS: 78
Ave: 26.15
Balls faced: 1056
SR: 47.06
100s: 0
50s: 4
0s: 1
4s: 74
6s: 1

This INCLUDES 240 runs in 5 innings (3 of his 4 50s) in the ashes series.

How THE FUCK is this guy opening the batting for Australia over Hughes, Jaques, Rogers o anyone else who has played above third grade cricket in their state capital??

Compare this to the two recent outcasts

Hughes

Innings: 9
Not Outs: 0
Runs: 472
HS: 160
Ave: 52.44
Balls Faced: 806
SR: 58.56
100s: 2
50s: 1
4s: 61
6s: 6

Soeone needs to letterbomb hilditch.

Jaques (decent comparison to Watson, as they have batted the same number of times in tests)

Inn: 19
Not Out: 0
Runs: 902
HS: 150
Ave: 47.47
Balls Faced: 1663
SR: 54.23
100s: 3
50s: 6
4s: 99
6s: 3

Let the rumours about Watson fucking Hilditch begin

windies did well today, considering.

all in all though, this makes me very very sad for what has happened to their cricket. they were once the best side in the world, by a long way, and for a very long time.

a great shame. roach may be quick but i don't see him taking a spell of 7/2 like ambrose did.

Holy shit, a new thread.

I need to start paying attention to this season ... I'm still in a rugby/AFL mindset, not cricket.

that's a great comeback by new zealand. i thought we were no hope this morning, but somehow pulled out a 32 run win.

new zealand did fantastically well. vettori almost pulled off another ton too.

as for our test, i'm starting to get really pissed off with the way journos are treating this series. it's only going to be shit if they keep saying it will. people are forgetting the windies are missing one of, if not their best bat, ramnaresh sarwan, and also their best bowler, fidel edwards.

read a text to the editor today. bloke reckoned "hodge to me always looked like a man who'd rather make 150 in a losing side than fail in a winning one. more passion and pride and he may have had a long and illustrious career"

what do we think of that?

What a load of bollocks! Cricket is hardly a true team sport anyway, you go out there and compile runs, and that's what Hodge could do, he'd go out there and compile runs, and if he needed to (in ODI and 20/20) he could do it quickly. That's what he was asked to do, and that's what he was bloody good at doing.

How does one look as if he would rather score 150 in a losing side anyway? That's just mumbo jumbo from apologetics for the selectors.
