So ye this kicks off in about an hour, hoping for a pretty spiteful series after the last one but not expecting it. As much as I pissing hate this mob, can't help but admire the talent that Rabada is. Clint.

Australia squad: Aaron Finch (c), Alex Carey (vc), Josh Hazlewood (vc), Ashton Agar, Pat Cummins, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Travis Head, Chris Lynn, Shaun Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Darcy Short, Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis, Adam Zampa


South Africa squad: Faf du Plessis (c), Farhaan Behardien, Quinton de Kock, Reeza Hendricks, Imran Tahir, Heinrich Klaasen, Aiden Markram, David Miller, Chris Morris, Lungi Ngidi, Andile Phehlukwayo, Dwaine Pretorius, Kagiso Rabada, Tabraiz Shamsi, Dale Steyn

Can't find the article now but someone printed that Australia went through a trial match the other day and our batting top six was Aaron Finch (c), Travis Head, Shaun Marsh, Chris Lynn, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis. Obviously followed by Carey and then the bowlers. I'm pretty sure Coulter-Nile will play too which will be nice. Been in some good form since returning from injury.

I hate the Saffas so much so pls win boys.

I'm giving it out to be honest. Even on the small chance it didn't, he deserves to be out for such a shocking shot.

lol. Oh boy.

We just don't have any good batters anymore.

No arguments there. Head and Short's complete lack of footwork combined with these two just make it feel like no one ever learns anything. Planting your feet and just teeing off isn't going to get it done against really good bowling.

Crowd looks as pathetic as our performance :approve: There was literally no advertising for it over here, only realised this was on mid-week due to two cricket nuts in the office, who both said they DGAF and weren't going

Yeah have no interest in these random ODI and T-20 series, seems like no else gives a shit either.

Yeah. Asked a friend about the only international game in Hobart for the summer next week and he didn't give 2 hoots.

I am old enough to remember the great tri series we used to have and how well those games were attended. ODI are just irrelevant nowadays. If it wasn't for the world cup, they would be dead.

Personally, test and ODI are tv sports. Much better on the set than the ground.

I think that the fact it's on Foxtel is a big game changer too.

Ben McDermott has been named in the squad as cover for Shaun Marsh if he doesn't get up for Friday. Quite fond of him personally.

14 List A games with an average of 50.15 and a strike rate of 82.21, so less likely to come in and do stupid shit from ball one. In the most recent JLT Cup series he made 427 runs from 7 matches at 71.16 a pop, including two hundreds and two fifties.

Shaun Marsh and Adam Zampa in for D'Arcy Short and NCN.

Like Shaun at three in this side.

So they sack half of CA, but not that hipster cunt who always manages to get front and centre of every cut to the Australian dressing room every fucking summer?

Him and Alex Kontouris. Bloke's had two decades nearly to prove he's not Errol Alcott's asshole. Wogs and cricket. Bradman wouldn't have accepted this.

Did you manage to get the entire crowd in that photo because it sure looks like an empty stadium otherwise!

Members had a decent amount at that point but can't see from that photo. Rest of the ground was pretty empty.

Huge crowd here....

Okay, maybe about 5k. But that is almost a 1/3 of the size of a hurricane match

Questionable captaincy decisions from Finch include not opening the bowling with Starc in game 1 and opening the batting with Lynn in game 3.

So much lel at the commentary team who were talking up the excitement of Lynn opening the batting only for him to get out first ball of the innings.
