Ashes 2017-18: Pat Howard Test No. 6 Should Score Bulk of Runs in JLT Sheffield Shield

The High-Performance Manager for Cricket Australia (CA) Pat Howard on Sunday revealed the selectors are eager to fill vacant number six Test spot for the Ashes 2017-18. The player who would be among runs during the first three rounds of the impending first-class season of the JLT Sheffield Shield competition which will be beginning from October 26.

“(The selectors) are looking for that and that multi-faceted ability won’t hurt,” Howard was quoting as saying by Special Broadcast Service.

The curtain raiser of the six-team tournament will be played between hosts Queensland and Victoria at Gabba in Brisbane, as the four-day competition will culminate with the grand finale on March 23, 2018.

Interestingly, for the Test No. 6 position, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis and Hilton Cartwright have emerged as first priority before fighting it out in the premium domestic fixtures, as Australian selectors would be closely monitoring the activities of the trio in particular.

The 43-year-old Sydney-born Howard believes added pressure would be on the players who have been called in for the making most out of the opportunity.

“It’s a really open race … much like it was between Hobart and Adelaide (Tests last year), there is a pressure to perform,” Howard remarked.

Howard made it clear by stating the set of skills with the bat would be given the first preference, before the traditional five-match series against England will kick start from November 23 in Brisbane.

“The selectors have said that it’s a batting role first, with any skills you can bring after that more than welcome,” Howard maintained.

As the case seems pretty clear for the batting all-rounders, Howard hinted the bowling would only remain as the second option in a bid to regain the Urn.

On the other side, Test contenders Shaun Marsh and Mitchell Marsh have had also impressed in the recently concluded JLT One-day Cup, as Western Australia clinched the title by thrashing South Australia by six wickets.

Both the brothers – Shaun and skipper Mitchell – played an integral role in helping Western Australia side for lifting the trophy at Blundstone Arena in Hobart on October 21 (Saturday).

With players representing their respective sides, they are supposed to give their best to make their case stronger for Test cricket.

Howard, who expressed satisfaction with the side’s preparations in the build-up to Ashes while adding Usman Khawaja has also mentioned about the stability after his comment on ‘horses for courses’ selection process in Australian national fold particularly while considering the Asian pitches.

“And he [Khawja] also said that there is a stable set-up (in the squad of batsman), and I agree with him,” Howard concluded.

On the other side, it would be an interesting battle between the glovemen in form of Peter Nevill and Matthew Wade’s. The fate of both would be subsequently decided by the Cricket Australia ahead of the Ashes campaign, as promising South Australian wicket-keeper batsman Alex Carey has shown some promise.

Both Wade and Nevill struck hundreds in the grade cricket for Tasmania and New South Wales respectively.

Marcus Stoinis’ Primary Focus Limited-Overs Cricket than Traditional Ashes

Australia batsman Marcus Stoinis opined that his exclusive focus is on the limited-overs cricket and ongoing series against India in the sub-continent, as the struggling visitors are trailing by 0-3 in the five-match One-day internationals after faltering with the bat in first two matches.

Stoinis has expressed his satisfaction with his performance and is confident of coming good, in the two remaining fixtures of the 50-over format.

“There’s two games left in this series and it’s a chance to start some momentum for the summer. All the focus is on that for the team,” Stoinis’ comments were published by Cricket Australia.

The 28-year-old Stoinis, who is very fresh to the international cricket, has smashed a solitary century in Auckland which came against New Zealand in January this year.

Stoinis is sweating it out in Bengaluru while revealing he has performed under pressure while facing quality bowling line-up.

“The only way I can answer is (to say) I’m enjoying the pressure,” Stoinis maintained.

As the Victorian-based all-rounder, Stoinis might be pressing his claims for the traditional series by his performance.

However, Stoinis went on to reiterate the Steven Smith-led side would be eyeing to win the remainder of the matches of Paytm series.

“I’m enjoying the opportunities and I’m seeing them as opportunities,” Stoinis remarked.

Owing to his reputation, Stoinis admitted the fact that he has not given a thought of playing upcoming Ashes series.

“Obviously (those games) are probably pretty important to play the Ashes. But at the moment I’m not really thinking about that,” Stoinis added.

Pertinently, due to the individual performance, Stoinis is the one who rose to the occasion, as he remained unbeaten twice in three matches.

“I’m obviously still young in my international career and I think that’s where my head is at the moment,” Stoinis said.

Interestingly, Stoinis is averaging 94.66 in six ODIs, as he has further vowed to give his best in a bid to lift the team following the string of losses.

“I guess if I do want to play for Australia, I’m obviously going to have to bat well, bowl well and field well,” Stoinis further concluded.

After the dismissal performance with the willow at Chepauk in Chennai, Stoinis scored unbeaten 62 at Eden Gardens in Kolkata and 27 not out at Holkar Stadium in Indore.

Both the top-ranked sides are scheduled to face in Bengaluru on Thursday, as Men in Blue skipper would be eyeing to set a record for the most number of consecutive wins.

Stoinis, who made his international debut in 2015, has played six ODIs and a solitary Twenty20 fixture against Australia at Cardiff.

Virat Kohli Finds Unlikely Support in the Squabble With Matthew Wade

Virat Kohli has a history of getting into verbal duels especially with the Australians and the 2nd ODI at the Eden Gardens was no exception as Kohli and Aussie gloveman Matthew Wade was involved in a confrontation with Matthew Wade. The incident happened when Kohli decided to take a bye run while Wade was down injured. He looked in discomfort, but Kohli went for the extra run only to be confronted by Wade and the bowler Marcus Stoinis at the end of the over.

Wade was already struggling in the Kolkata heat and to add to his misery a Marcus Stpoinis struck him in his arm and Kohli who was at the non-striker’s took off for the run. Despite being confronted by Wade and Stoinis Kohli found incredible support from an Australian. Former Aussie medium pacer Stuart Clark said the incident to be ‘piddly crap’ and came out in support of Kohli.

“He (Wade) misfielded one. Whether the Indian batsman knew he was injured or not was probably a secondary question,” Clarke was quoted as saying to Sky Sports Radio by the Herald Sun.

“It’s one run. Is this the biggest issue this team has got? If I’m Matthew Wade and I’m Marcus Stoinis — and full credit to him for standing up for Matthew Wade — I’d be worrying about my own cricket, rather than all this other stuff.This is piddly crap.”

Kohli is not a man known to hide his emotions and he was seen giving Wade a grand send-off when he was dismissed by Kuldeep Yadav. It also happened to be Kuldeep’s first wicket which made the hat-trick possible. It wasn’t a great delivery under any stress of imagination but Wade failed to put it away and chopped it down onto his stumps.

Meanwhile, it was India who took a 2-0 lead in the 5 match series after completing a resounding 50 runs victory. The score of 252 set by India wasn’t a match-winning one under any stress of imagination but the bowlers bowled brilliantly and restricted Australia to a mere 202 runs. Marcus Stoinis gave a valiant effort but it was too late.

Marcus Stoinis Left Stunned With Akshay Karnewar’s Ambidextrous Skill

The Australian all-rounder Marcus Stoinis was left stunned when he saw the ambidextrous bowler Akshar Karnewar. At the end of the practice game between Australia and Board President’s XI, Stoinis said that he had never seen this sort of thing before,

“I actually didn’t know what the umpire was trying to tell me, He was trying to say ‘he’s going to bowl left arm to you’. So that’s brilliant by him. I’ve never seen that before. Ever,” he told

Karnwear was bowling right arm spin to left handed batsman Marcus Stoinis whereas switched his hand whenever Stoinis was at the crease. Despite the bowler having this option, he couldn’t bowl well and spent 59 runs in his quota of six overs. However, his skills have impressed the Aussie player, and he has made an impact on the Kangaroo camp.

Karnwear, an all-rounder from Vidarbha, grabbed attention during the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2015/16 when, during a televised game, he switched his hand and bowled with differents arm in the same over. Soon, he became the talk of the town.

However, it was after one year when he got an IPL contract. He was the part of Royal Challengers Bangalore camp in IPL 2017 and Indian skipper Virat Kohli is well versed of the spinner possessing this rare skill.

Karnewar had a good domestic season 2016/17 and was also part of India B for the Deodhar Trophy 2017. Riding on his performance in the previous season, he was given a place in Board President’s XI squad for the one off practice game against Australia but the second string side lost to Steven Smith led boys by a margin of 103 runs.

The win at the start of the tour has undoubtedly boosted the morale of the visitors, coming into the series against a strong Indian team.

Marcus Stoinis Makes A Comeback To The Western Warriors Side

The Story

Seam bowling all-rounder Marcus Stoinis has been brought back to the Western Australia side after an absence of four years. The return was on cards following his departure from the Victorian side with whom he began his association in 2011. The Western Warriors have confirmed his arrival while announcing their state contract list for the 2017-18 season on Monday (August 14).

His inclusion has bulked up the already huge list of all-rounders which the Western Warriors have with them on their side. While coach Langer has described his arrival as exciting, it would be very interesting to see how the new signing will be used in the squad with the likes of Mitchell Marsh, Ashton Agar, Hilton Cartwright and Ashton Turner, already present.

Not to forget the list of fast bowlers, most of the national team probables, present in the list of contracted list. A glance at the list spells out the names of Jason Behrendorff, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Joel Paris, Jhye Richardson and Andrew Tye. All these factors might make things very competitive for Stoinis.

Meanwhile, fast bowler Cameron Green, all-rounder D’Arcy Short and wicketkeeper Josh Inglis have been promoted from a rookie contract to full contract.

The man to watch out for

Stoinis has a short history with his home side Warriors as he played only three games back in 2011 before moving to Victoria as a promising 21-year-oldThe 27-year-old made his debut for Victoria in 2013 and cemented his spot in the Bushrangers side and kept climbing the ladder to receive a national call-up in August 2015.

Amazing list of players

Western Australia head coach Justin Langer expressed his delight at having Stoinis back with the state side.

“We’re thrilled to have Marcus (Stoinis) coming home to West Australia, not only because he’s an extremely talented player but he’s a great character as well,” Langer said.

“Young Matt Spoors is an exciting young talent. I love his dancing feet; a lot of kids these days have really slow footwork, but Matt’s got really fast batting feet.

“Twelve players have been Australian representatives and that’s a great tribute to the program we’re running here at the WACA.

“On paper, this side looks amazing, but it’s how we gel on the field that counts.”

Western Australia contract list

Full contracts: Ashton Agar, Cameron Bancroft, Jason Behrendorff, William Bosisto, Hilton Cartwright, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Cameron Green, Joshua Inglis, Michael Klinger, Simon Mackin, Mitchell Marsh, Shaun Marsh, David Moody, Joel Paris, Jhye Richardson, D’Arcy Short, Marcus Stoinis, Ashton Turner, Andrew Tye, Jonathan Wells, Sam Whiteman.

2017 ICC Champions Trophy: Cricket Pay Dispute Won’t Distract Australia: Marcus Stoinis

Cricket Australia has given the Australia Cricket Association (ACA) a deadline of June 30 for the players to sign a new Memo of Understanding (MoU) and vowed to stop paying them unless an agreement is rubber stamped.

The dispute centres around CA’s desire to remove the current revenue-sharing agreement with all male and female state players. Australia is one of the favourites for the prestigious 50-over tournament starting on June 1 but the festering pay dispute is hovering over the team. Nothing is sure till the deadline June 30th.

Last week David Warner raised the prospect of players heading overseas to take up the lucrative Twenty20 contracts if their wages are stopped and of an Ashes series taking place on home soil without Australia’s biggest names.

The extent of the feeling from players has been demonstrated on social media with the likes of Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc and former Test stars like Mitchell Johnson and Shane Watson expressing support for the ACA’s stance.

Stoinis, who is the part of Australia’s 15-man Champions Trophy squad, feels it won’t affect their performance in the Champions Trophy at all.

“It’s not really been talked about, it is what it is,” he said on Sunday (May 21). “This kind of stuff happens when the MOU is up and we’ve got the ACA looking at that on our behalf. Hopefully, it doesn’t get to that stage [strike action], nobody wants to see that happen,” he said.
“I don’t think it will happen … but we’ll see. We’re here to play cricket and try and win this tournament,”he added.
Stoinis has recovered from the shoulder injury he sustained during his IPL stint and looking to carry on from where he left off in January when he clubbed an unbeaten 146 and took 3-49, against NewZealand. However, Stoinis looks confident about his fitness.

“Initially they said I would be four-to-six weeks in a sling but that changed pretty quickly when I got home,” he said.

“But it’s all been good news since then. The doctors and medical team are happy. That’s half the thing with an injury, your mind goes to what you might miss out on.I am really looking forward to this opportunity again. You don’t get many with the Australia team and hopefully, I can keep my place and contribute.”

He averages 96 in ODIs from his three innings. He too scored an unbeaten 196 earlier this year and is among a whole pool of talents in the squad, he looks forward to being included in the playing XI.

“It’s such a good team and there’s probably only a few guaranteed spots in there so everything’s up for grabs,” he said. “We’ve got a couple of practice games … you’ve just got to take your opportunity and hopefully, I get one.”

Feared I Might Miss The Champions Trophy, Says Australia’s Stoinis

Brisbane, May 21 (IANS) Australian all-rounder Marcus Stoinis feared he might miss the ICC Champions Trophy after picking up an injury while playing for Kings XI Punjab in the Indian Premier League (IPL), the 27-year-old admitted on Sunday.

Stoinis injured his shoulder while diving during a fielding drill in a May 5 tie against Royal Challengers Bangalore and immediately returned to Australia for further assessment.

“Definitely,” he told when asked if he thought he’d be forced to miss the tournament.

“Initially they said it would be 4-6 weeks in a sling, but then that changed when I got home and it calmed down a little bit. It’s been good since then,” revealed the middle-order batsman who was part of Australia’s bitterly fought India tour before the IPL.

Australia begin their Champions Trophy campaign against New Zealand on June 2.

“With an injury, the first thing (you think about) is what you’re going to miss out on,” Stoinis continued.

“So I tried to forget about that stuff as soon as I could because then you could go into a bit of a spiral, which is not a good place to be.

“It’s all on track. I’ve been working pretty closely with the physios and everyone seems to be happy with how it’s going,” he added.

It remains to be seen whether Stoinis is drafted in the first XI or not but if his unavailability would have meant one option less for Steve Smith and co.

Stoinis produced one of Australia’s greatest ODI innings earlier this year when he bludgeoned a remarkable 146 not out against New Zealand at Eden Park, having been elevated into the squad when both skipper Steve Smith and vice-captain David Warner missed the series.

“It’s such a good team and there’s probably only a few guaranteed spots in there so everything’s up for grabs,” he said.

Besides Smith and David Warner, ODI performers like Aaron Finch, Glenn Maxwell and Travis Head, Stoinis could be battling fellow all-rounder Moises Henriques and batting powerhouse Chris Lynn for a spot in Australia’s top six.

Stoinis said he would want to make a mark in the practice games.

“We’ve got a couple of practice games … you’ve just got to take your opportunity and hopefully I get one. You don’t get many opportunities in the Australian cricket team … so it was good to take that (chance) early on and hopefully that stands me in good stead for the competition,” he said.

Marcus Stoinis Cleared To Play Champions Trophy 2017

Marcus Stoinis has been cleared to play ICC Champions Trophy 2017, Cricket Australia confirmed on Wednesday. Stoinis injured himself during the ongoing season of Indian Premier League (IPL) when he landed on his shoulder awkwardly during a practice session. This forced the all-rounder to be ruled out of the tournament.

It later jeopardised his participation in Champions Trophy. He waited for results of the scans and had to prove his fitness so as to decide upon his chances of participation in the tournament.

Stoinis has a big responsibility on his shoulders as he edged out James Faulkner, the Man of the Match of Australia’s 2015 World Cup triumph, to get a place in the side.

The all-rounder has played a total of three ODI’s and one T20Is. His grabbed limelight in the game of Chappell-Hadlee Trophy when he single-handedly took the team to a brink of a win against New Zealand in 2017 playing an innings of 146* but it was a run-out in the end that kept Australia away from a remarkable win.

Stoinis along with few other members of the side and coaching staff will fly to England to London tomorrow night i.e. Thursday. The other members of the side who are busy playing in IPL will join the squad later.

At the same time, the members of Indian team will also fly to England to take part in the tournament.

Australia will face New Zealand in their first game of the tournament on June 2. They will face Bangladesh and hosts England in their next two games on June 5 and 10 respectively. The current World Champions have won ICC Champions Trophy twice in the year 2006 and 2009 respectively.

India is the current champions of Champion Trophy as they defeated England in the final of the tournament n the year 2013 which was a 20 over the contest.

Marcus Stoinis’ Shoulder Scans Yet To Clear About His Availability for ICC Champions Trophy 2017

Australian all-rounder Marcus Stoinis, who is nursing the shoulder injury after falling awkwardly during the fielding drill while playing for Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Kings XI Punjab as his availability is under a cloud owing to injury as he returned home last week in a bid to rehabilitate.

The results of scans will further make Cricket Australia(CA), to ponder over their process of ICC Champions Trophy 2017 squad after inducting him in 15-member side, in April, last month.

Earlier, all-rounder, James Faulkner was omitted from the squad. It’s expected that Faulkner, who has been the part of Gujarat Lions would be the able replacement for Stoinis if there happen to be anything serious in the shoulder of the 27-year-old.

Interestingly, Stoinis’ injury results through scans is expected to come to forth in this week which would further provide the clear picture of Australia’s cricket board to discuss further, the replacement.

Interestingly, earlier in this year, Stoinis smashed a significant century (147 off 117 balls) against New Zealand in the Chappell-Hadlee series to make a mark in his early days of international cricket.

Stoinis, who made his international debut in 2015, has played three One-day Internationals and solitary Twenty20.
In the ongoing cash-rich Twenty20 leagues season, Stoinis, whose extent of the injury is yet to be known as he had dismal show both with the bat and a ball.

Stoinis has played five IPL matches in this season in which he scored just 17 runs while bagging two wickets eventually at the unhealthy average of 55.

However, in overall 12 IPL matches, he has scored 304 runs and picked 10 wickets including his best figures of four for 15.

On May 26, Australia will play a warm-up game in London before playing their first match of the ICC’s mega event against New Zealand on June 2 (Friday) at Edgbaston in Birmingham.

Moreover, all-rounder, Mitchell Marsh was sidelined as he is recovering from a shoulder injury which he picked during four-match Test series against India.

There are several other Australian-based players, who are participating in the IPL and would leave for London after the conclusion of IPL on May 21.

Marcus Stoinis has been named as the replacement for injured Mitchell Marsh ahead of the two remaining Tests against India.

Stint With Australia A Helped Marcus Stoinis Earn Maiden Call Up

After being routed by the Indian bowlers in Bangalore, Australia dealt with another blow after all-rounder Mitchell Marsh was ruled out of the remaining two Tests due to a shoulder injury. With Marsh filling up as the third pacer and a support to the new ball pair of Josh Hazlewood and Mitchell Starc, the Australian selectors were on the lookout for a pace bowling all rounder.


A seasoned campaigner in the form of Moises Henriques was an option, but the selectors opted for the relatively unknown Marcus Stoinis, who recently grabbed eyeballs with a sparkling ODI century at Auckland. Trevor Hohns, the chief selector of Australia in his recent release to the media mentioned that Stoinis’ stint with Australia A helped him edge ahead of Henriques for the tour of India.


“When we looked at the various options we had to replace Mitch, there were two or three people who came to mind, and certainly Marcus was one, Moises was another, another young man by the name of Jack Wildermuth was considered as well, he’s had a terrific season too,” Hohns said about Stoinis’ selection for the remaining Tests at Ranchi and Dharamshala.


“Marcus got over the line because a couple of years ago here with Australia A he performed very well, secondly we consider to give us as many options as we possibly could have in this series, we considered the stronger bowler to be the best option at this stage. That’s what got him across the line,” Hohns added.


Stoinis himself sounded pretty confident and was upbeat about doing well in India. “There’s no such thing as form really,” Stoinis said. “I went in and made a hundred for Australia recently and hadn’t made many runs before that. You just have to get involved and trust you know what you are doing.”
