Saw a bunch of highlights on the interweb of the Tasmania vs WA game, every time I see him bat I think Wade looks quality, is he not on the radar as a batsman?

Wade got told to go and score big runs by Justin Langer. Has been at the top of the sheffield shield runs most of the season and still not been picked. Elite Honesty

A fair enough point except hes been replaced by Khawaja, Handscomb and the Marshes who you could say the same about. Particularly in England.

Nothing is sacred https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/cricket/47623980
It'll just be like the County Championship then I guess. I wonder if this will now pave the way for more clubs to start putting names and numbers on the backs of white shirts? (queue awful nicknames)

I actually dont mind this, will make it much easier to watch and know what players are where especially in regards to catches taken

Extremely non-bothered by this. That said... if we're going to have numbers in tests then it absolutely has to follow rugby's lead and be numbered 1-11 based on batting position, none of this Root 66 nonsense.

@liscon12 years back I played for a side in a local parks league, the first time we got proper team shirts they decided to go for names/numbers as well. Got asked what number I wanted, nothing mentioned about names... shirt arrived with my first name on it!

Players will be given the choice of any number between 0 and 99

we may get Root 66 but at least there wont be Gayle 333 or Muralitharan 800 etc

I take the same view as you Edge on the numbers should be 1-11 however I feel this wont be the case, batting positions can be swapped and changed all the time. Each player also gets their initials printed on the shirts, plus sizing will be different too, so its not as if you can just swap with a teammate if you are promoted up the batting order

Farce.

@liscon12 Don't feel the need to go as far as to change numbers if a nightwatchman gets sent in! Just the order at the toss is fine.

A journo made a good point on twitter about this.... that it may encourage a few more test white shirt sales, kids with Root 66 or Kohli 12 on their back, and that can only be a good thing.

We have this at our club, I was initially against it but 60+ players have bought shirts so I caved and got mine too.

Oh yeh as long as the big companies and brands sell a few more shirts, that's now all that matters?

Give over. (No Swearing Please) idea
