Vixen are certainties to make the final; they play Queensland in the last round and will probably eliminate them from contention unless there is a boilover.

South Australia have the bye against the Marsh-survivors, who are still in no position to keep them out of finals contention.

However, if Tasmania can keep SA honest, the WA v NSW match looms as a preliminary final ... a big win to WA would bring them back into strong contention unless QLD upset the Vix AND SA overwhelm Tasmania; a NSW win would cement their spot.

WA would need a massive and highly aggressive win to get their NRR up.

...and have the other results go there way

36 runs or a wicket more in the first 100 overs

Looks like a shootout between the two pace attacks.

Behrendorff Mackin Moody/Green (no Paris) for WA v Copeland Bollinger Abbott/Sandhu (no Cummins)

NSW's Somerville and Crane SHOULD be less effective at the WACA.

"Pace" might be stretching it for the Dubber attack.

An unkind observer (where are you, Zim) would say that 'attack' might be stretching it.

Table with one round to go:

Pos--------P---Points
1 - VIC----9---52.51
2 - NSW--9---43.01
3 - QLD---9---40.45
4 - SA-----9---39.99
5 - WA----9---36.66
6 - TAS---9---17.32

Pretty grouse to have 4 teams in with a chance of a Finals spot along with the Viles. Vomits and Banjos, and Sandies and Spivs might neutralise each other and allow the Barrels to jump into 2nd.

Amazing if the Waspies get up. It would lead to three SS matches in a row between two States.

um no, it wouldn't, unless you have a different concept of 3 in a row.

really good

got lightning and thundered off on the second day ...then it pissed down and we had no chance of getting back on

game was out of reach for the second batting team anyway ( 5/50 chasing 330 with 50 overs left)

The first bowler I umpired was playing ...took (waca district) wickets 1113 to 1117 in the game

Grandson of one my old clients/friends was playing ...he scored 142, got dropped 5 times and caught on a no ball (which I called)



Best comeback ever heard

skipper setting field for his spinner

loud mouthed fielder ( he never shut up and it was mainly garbage) says " we need a deep point for his short ball"

captain says " shut up ....when do i ever set a field for bad bowling?"

LMF ...." Everytime you give me the ball"



Best spray

LMF when bowling has started acting like a pork chop

yelled "F*ck!" after getting hit for 4 ...had started kicking the pitch and had threatened to throw the ball at the batsman a couple of times
I had a quick chat with the skip that he needed to calm his player down and especially stop him swearing

LMF got a two minute dressing down with heaps of finger pointing and swearing after his over and another one before he started his next over. Worked a treat

Claremont Nedlands " western suburbs* socialites" ( Julie Bishop territory) and Mt Lawley " inner city hipsters" (Stephen Smith and now Tim Hammond land ) don't key cars



western suburbs has the opposite meaning in perth as it does in sydney

Alcohol.Think Again Western Warriors Captain Adam Voges has announced his retirement from domestic state cricket at the end of this Sheffield Shield season, following a decorated 15-year career.

The long-serving batter, who recently overtook John Inverarity for most wins as WA’s Sheffield Shield captain list, said it was “the right time” to retire.

Voges will play with Middlesex in the County Championship in England this year and hasn’t ruled out playing for the Perth Scorchers in the 2017-18 KFC Big Bash League.

Warnbro-raised Voges debuted for WA in 2002 and has, to this date, represented the state 111 times in the Sheffield Shield, scoring 7,433 runs including 19 centuries, to sit fourth on the state’s all-time Shield runs list.

Voges will finish his state career with the second most runs for WA in domestic one-day cricket, with 3,133 runs from 91 matches, behind only Justin Langer.

He also played 20 Tests, 31 One-Day Internationals and seven T20 Internationals for Australia, memorably becoming the oldest player in history to score a century on Test debut as a 35-year-old in 2015.



Coach Justin Langer heaped praise on Voges for his significant contribution to Western Australian cricket.

“Adam Voges is going to be really hard to replace as a captain, as a player and as a figure head in Western Australian cricket,” Langer said.

“One of our main philosophies in WA is we pick character over cover drives and he is an outstanding character.

“In terms of his cricket, his record speaks for itself. You can see from his remarkable records and statistics what an influence he’s had on Western Australian cricket.

“I love his resilience and physical and mental toughness. People might not see that, because he’s such a nice bloke, but physically he’s really tough.

“It’s a great story of perseverance, to wait until he’s 35-years-old and then to average 60 in Test cricket. One of my biggest highlights as a coach was when Adam Voges told me he was going to play Test cricket for Australia, I was so excited.

“It’s a story of perseverance, resilience, mental toughness, physical toughness, that’s what great Western Australians are all about and he’s a great example of that.”

Voges will play at the WACA Ground for Western Australia for the final time in the Round 10 match against New South Wales starting tomorrow

3 fine servants of the game. It's a real shame that Hartley never played a Test.

Agreed but they should have chosen him over Wade when Haddin left the first time.
