Bye bye Blackwood...

no Samuels, no Blackwood, that is a good fu#king team.

More than likely a bowler short, but good fu#king team nonetheless.

Absolutely. Blackwood is nothing more than a musty cowlasher. The amazing thing is that he stinks in the cowlashing formats as well.

Looks like you think the team is a good one based on who is not in it, rather than who is in it.

But no one should be surprised, you've been around long enough for us to know where your sentiments aren't.

I thought they drop a player for non-performance? The dropping of Blackwood must be because he performs!! Its really stupid to drop JB for performing..

he favorite shot is coming down the wicket, first ball, and depositing the straight batted ball over the bowler's head for six...

And then driving in the air straight to mid-off.

How many specialist batsmen do you know that managed to play 71 Tests and averaged less than 33?

Blackwood was on that path to join his fellow lip gloss country-woman. It's a good thing Stuart Law nipped this in the bud.

In reply to buds

Performing? Is he on a stage? Is he playing the role of Xavier Marshall or Dancer Hyatt?

31 average in Tests.
31 average in FC cricket.
5.50 average in ODI'S.
25 average in List A.
12.92 average in 20/20.

to be honest..cant argue with you..even though you harsh...

He gets out stupidly and doesnt warrant quarreling for...

He might be spared a good arse cutting for getting out the same way in his own back yard if he had a pick today...

Scar 2017-04-21 16:50:41 

How many Tests for his nine 50s and one Ton? Then tell me which others perform that consistently as a newbie besides KB?!! I know allyuh want your Pollards and Dw Bravo etc who have more 50s than Blackwood.

Scar 2017-04-21 16:52:40 

In reply to powen001

What about those who more experienced but get out dumb too but have less 50s? The failures you all want instead???

Devin 2017-04-21 17:32:56 

In reply to Scar

His last 12 Tests(21 innings) have yielded 509 runs at an average of 24.23. Four 50's in those 21 knocks, and on two occasions he scored consecutive ducks.

He scored 619 runs from his first 10 Tests at an average of 41.26. He registered 5 50's and his lone century during this period.

He has been a failure at every level of cricket in all forms. For all the talk of him being a stroke player and a shotgun, his record is even worse in the limited over formats of the game.

Devin since this a Test Series, why don't you just post the Test avgs of all the players in This Squad. Please

sunfish 2017-04-21 19:28:30 

I want Blackwood to succeed because I like his bold stroke play. But he needs bigger scores. Hope he remains in the setup.

And BTW, I think he should have played in front of his home crowd today. It's muddled thinking to play two debutants in such a fragile batting lineup. At least Blackwood probably would have given a 40+ because he has put some 50+ on the books in the past.

Scar 2017-04-21 21:32:22

The point is he is still performing better than the rest other than KB in his early years. I even would give him a break since OZ next great batsman according to them is averaging 32 in FC with limited Tons and quite a few 50s at 23 years of age. The next 2 batsmen.OZ selectors state are near the Team average in the 30s. The highest run getter there has a truckload of Tons about 40 with a 42 average but is 32 years and wont get a sniff

Why you cut it off at 12 tests..
How can you play two debutants ahead of an experienced test player on a side short on experience.NTM his last score against Pal was very very good, just missing out on century..

I hope the drop works. I hope he tek sleep mark death.

If he does, he will come back a more complete batsman.
