Blues batting first on a green top.:eek: Regular opener Ryan Hackney omitted, so have Trent Copeland and Ryan Hadley from out attack?? I have a big problem picking three lefties in the top 3. Can see a bad match outcome for us with this lineup even without the classy Jhye Richardson.
Playing X1 for both sides are underlined above.

How does that work? Still the same 2 innings each? Wouldn't there be a lot of draws?
Yes both use the two innings. That is a fair assumption. Truth is there are no more draws than the five day game. You will find Test batsmen have greater mental ability to concentrate for longer periods than their Shield counterparts.

I know X number of these guys get contracts with Cricket Australia and some make money in the IPL but are the rest of them also pros? Seems like it might be difficult to play for 4 days on a regular basis and also hold down another profession.

State players are professionals like Test (national) players.

NSW 180.. Kurtis Patterson top score 70 not out. Well batted skipper.
Best bowler Lance Morris with 5/32. A Test cap awaits Lance.

What kind of bowler is Lance Morris?
Express pace, between 145-150kph, with the engine to crank it up to 155kph or even further. Two of our past express men were Jeff Thomson and Brett Lee. Is a great asset to your attack having an express bowler to call on when the skipper wants some feathers ruffled.

How fast is that compared to Mitchell Johnson?

Johnson was about 140/145kph. But woefully inaccurate due to his odd dropped shoulder action.

How does it compare with Brett Lee?

Lee averaged 145kph I'd say, but could crank it up 10clicks faster.. depending on the conditions and his own fitness. I expect Morris will do similar. Morris was exceptional yesterday. Quick accurate and deadly. Took 5 for 36, that equates to a strike rate of 20 or a wicket every 20 balls plus an economy rate of 2. That is Test class in any ones language.

Australia's fastest ever bowler was Jeff Thomson. He and Dennis Lillee terrorized the Poms in the '74/75 series. He was once clocked at 160kph. He was fearsome. Thomson is on record as saying "I enjoy hitting a batsman more than getting him out. I like to see blood on the pitch".

Interesting. I always assumed Mitchell Johnson was faster than Brett Lee.
