    Watching Canada v Ireland T20.
    As much as we disregard these second tier nations, they’re actually pretty good.
    T20 a great leveller v’s ODI or Test.

    Papua New Guinea and Ireland finished top of their groups to qualify for the 2020 T20 World Cup.

    The winners of the following four matches will also qualify.

    October 29
    • Netherlands v UAE
    • Namibia v Oman
    October 30
    • Scotland v (Loser of Netherlands v UAE)
    • Hong Kong v (Loser of Namibia v Oman)

    The six sides that qualify will join Sri Lanka and Bangladesh in the first stage of the World Cup, playing group games at Kardinia Park and Bellerive Oval, with the top two sides from each group advancing through to the Super 12s stage.

    Spot on!

    I don't know why WA chose to bowl first either when their strength this season has been batting first and defending totals (4 times, 4 wins).

    Tremendous knock by Cam Green, scoring his maiden first-class century, and following up on his 87* in the first innings. After WA slumped to 7/53, it was a nice fightback from Green and Matt Kelly to salvage a draw.

    Agree with that synopsis.

    Pretty poor showing from a team that is meant to be ranked #1 in T20s (although their recent form hasn't been good, only one win and one no-result in ten T20s this year and lost 3-0 to SL, who we recently beat 3-0). Lucky for Pakistan, that first T20 was abandoned at the SCG (after we were dominating), otherwise we would have overtaken them at the top of the rankings.

    7/53 in the 2nd innings last match, 7/41 in the 2nd innings today, WA will do well to save a 2nd consecutive match, this time against NSW at the SCG.

    Currently, 7/96 just after lunch (Inglis 40*, Agar 11*, Starc 4/37), still with about 60 overs remaining.

    NSW 8d/444 & 0d/98 - Smith 103, Henriques 91

    Fairly standard start for Stoinis.

    When he made that ODI century for Australia (146* off 117 balls v NZ at Eden Park in 2017), I think he was only 5 off 20 balls, then 14 off 35 balls. By memory, Australia were 5/54 (chasing 287) when he came in at #7, ended up losing by just six runs. Hazlewood and Stoinis shared a 54-run partnership for the last wicket, with Hazlewood not facing a single delivery!

    The required run rate isn't an issue, WA just need to not lose wickets.

    WA 3/109 (26) - Marsh 58* (68), Stoinis 27* (57).
