I must admit I pretty much couldn't give a stuff about this starting tomorrow. Every year with the bullshit selections and lacklustre performances I just seem to lose a bit more interest and it's not helped with the ODD cricket disappearing from TV either.

Shaun Marsh? I'm old enough to remember when they were picking this guy on potential what is he now 40? Sayers tears up Shield cricket but can't get a game because some 5th string guy from NSW no one has ever heard of is the new 'great white hope'. Ferguson gets punted after one match doesn't matter how many runs he'll make at domestic level they'll never pick him again cos Mitch Marsh can bowl as well as bat! He might be bloody average at both but doesn't matter. Tim Paine? Last I heard he was the back up keeper in Tassie, here have a baggy green mate.

I think you have a stream it through the Cricket Australia app which costs you.

Should be able to find some free ones on the net
