Shahid Afridi Will NOT Play For The Redbacks In The Champions League T20!!!

Because, why the blooming heck would he?! The last (and only) time he played for them was two seasons ago in 2009/10, and he did not follow this up with an appearance in the Champions League 2010 either! So why would he suddenly pop up now and play for them in the CL, after getting replaced by Adil Rashid in the last Big Bash?

Redbacks squad for the CL: Cameron Borgas, Daniel Christian, Tom Cooper, Callum Ferguson, Daniel Harris, Michael Klinger, Nathan Lyon, Tim Ludeman, Aaron O'Brien, Gary Putland, Adil Rashid, Kane Richardson, Chadd Sayers, James Smith, Shaun Tait

Hope this helps,


That pic would actually make for a great blog logo :D

Loss of Cossy, absence of Pollard... I miss the old Redbacks... :-(

O'Brien, Lyon, Rashid... the spin trio that got them the Big Bash title :) Cannot complain about the current team really... The question is how this assortment of players will fare against the Indians I guess, but last year they did pretty well even *against* their team mate Pollard ;) I also hope Shaun Tait will fire from all cannons.

BTW I am running a Redbacks fanpage on Facebook, are you following it already?

You will miss Cossy, I'm sure, but fear not - you have the latest man-o-hype, Lyon! All will be well.

Go Scorchers!

Hi Sid, last year there was no Cossy either, and they did fairly well, at least won all group matches... This time around imho the attack is better, but the competition is tougher methinks
