Ah yeah Had a look at the teams, McDermott is the opening bowler for Queensland state team and Hazelwood the opening bowler for NSW. As in the fc teams so they will be too hot to handle for most U19 I suspect.
Hazelwood has a F/C bowling average of 28 and a list A average of 26, he was the youngest fast bowler ever picked for NSW (age 17) and will be playing for Australia one day. Comparisons with McGrath.
McDermott with a List A average of 21.
I didn't know we had FC cricketers in the U19 side, these guys will pwn the opposition....
No doubt this Australian side is the best I've seen so far in the competition - a lot of fast bang it in bowlers, all well built. Batting looks very solid too, I think they look a lot better than everyone but Sri Lanka are fighting back a bit.
Personally I am not in favour of cricketers who are already good enough to play first class cricket playing the U19 WC. Aamer obviously is several grades above this standard, Hazelwood and McDermott are opening bowlers in the Aus domestic competition and Mitchell Marsh already averages more than 45 in Aus first class cricket. None of them should play U19 IMO.
