    I would say Smith probably has a brighter future too and is more likely (read not at all because of Gazza) to make the step up to the first XI.
  2. Baxter MJ Deane

    A lot more than any of the others.
  3. Benny BS Read

    I don't get the computer shop name. So do they fix your computer for you or do they just go do it yourself? :confused:
  4. Jabba HJ Bots

    How? His standardised bowling average is 5 runs higher then Darts

    and Darts did alright in his appearance in this comp last seasons
  5. MatthewJay TA Miokovic

    Diggler to dominate.
  6. Julian BJ Taylor

    Ah so we are splitting the 2nd XI NSW sides.

    We (Country) will have no bowlers in the 2nd XI.
  7. Frizzed WC Welker

    :lol: @ the name.
  8. Cribbage RG Cribb

    And City will have no batsmen. Incey will bat 4.
  9. Benny BS Read

    :lol @ Incey at 4.
  10. morgieb MC Burridge

    Con at 3 is worse tbh.

    As is Kovas opening.
  11. Cribbage RG Cribb

    Kovas used to open in the BS. :p
  12. Hunter AD Hunt

    So much AWTA. I was slaving away for seasons doing well in the BS and had nothing to show for it because I was stuck behind the best spinner in the game. Hell, in season 9 I took 70 BS wickets at an average <25 and still had nothing. Now a days all you have to do is register and BAM you're in a provincial side.

    I think you mean when you miss out.
  13. Frizzed WC Welker

    Didn't see Lukics post before but I mass agree with it.

    I didn't even wanna play in the NSW 2nd xi last season.
  14. Callum CJ Laing

    I would imagine this still applies. :p

  15. Notsure SM Green

    I have to agree with this. I don't even care about 2nd XI provincial cricket.
  16. Frizzed WC Welker

    *Unless your name is Heath, then you can pull out of second xi matches.

    Way to twist the situation completely. He pulled out of provincial cricket way before Second XI stuff even existed; he didn't just say "nah this shouldn't be a competition, I'm too good for this"

    Let me make this clear, one last time.

    - Provincial cricket isn't like the old Origin series. It's not supposed to be really exclusive, or that much higher a standard, or whatever. People have said that it's starting to become like a parallel BS comp - which is good, I want it like that. Its purpose is not to be a level above, but to create a competition that has some real continuity and minimal player movement. Teams in the PC can evolve over time without just going and recruiting half a premiership side and then losing it the next season. It's just a different way of dividing up the players; it's no longer the next level up.

    - Provincial Second XI cricket is not provincial cricket. People saying "blah blah blah straight into a provincial side" are talking out their arses - it doesn't go into the provincial subforum and it doesn't even have First Class status. It's Second XI cricket, like ALC.

    - We used to have two BS rounds a week, and provincial cricket was played at season's end. It's changed for a reason - people are still getting two games a week (plus the one dayer now) and the best of the best get an extra series (North v South) at the end. So if you want to bullshit about playing less games per week in previous seasons or whatever (which is irrelevant anyone as I want CricSim to evolve and change, which may mean more or less simming over set periods) then you're talking out of your arse, because the current setup is different.

    - Lukic is a shit cunt n00b anyway and always will be. He pretends he's an oldfag by picking on newer members, asking who they are when they post, reminiscing about the good old days etc, but he's a newfag just like the rest of them. He made his provincial debut for the manufactured province that is NSW City last season very shortly after cementing a BS spot ffs, and he made his First Class debut for the might of NSW Academy.

    - The next step up in quality is North/South games. They now represent what the 'old' provincial setup was - A three game series at the end of the season between the best players in the game. So if you want that, it's still there. Stop looking in the wrong place for that sort of cricket.

    - If you don't like any of this, then don't post in threads about this comp. I don't give a fuck. If you continue to troll - any of you - you'll be cockblocked and/or infracted. No-one is forcing you to follow these games, and taking offence to simming that doesn't affect you is ridiculous.

    Don't see how a second eleven competition devalues Provincial cricket. It's no different to New Zealand A, Australia A etc in real life. It's just a way to build provincial interest early on in a members cricsim career and must be useful selection-wise for guys like Nino.

    So true. :laugh:
