The changing of the guard resulted in the downfall of bullies Nick Larkin and Daniel Solway along with weirdo Arjun Nair, while Nathan McAndrew moved to South Australia.

Last season

The Sheffield Shield, where they failed to defend the title when they were widely defeated in the Queensland final, was a campaign of extremes, especially with regard to Tasmania.

In the first stage of the competition, they were boiled to 64, but surprisingly they took the victory with 145 runs.

There was no replay in Hobart’s second leg when his hitting fell by just 32 in the first inning. Another game, against Queensland, ended with them crossing the line for a wicket.

The hitting was led by Moises Henriques (633 runs to 70.33) and Sean Abbott (570 runs to 63.33), which was a sign that they weren’t getting enough of the top ranking. They used Nathan Lyon for every game and claimed 42 wickets at 25.97.

They were undefeated in the Marsh Cup, which Pat Cummins captained in the group stage when they took the title with a massive victory over Western Australia.

New captain Kurtis Patterson had a poor 2020-21 season, plus a century against South Australia. After Peter Nevill takes the lead full time. It will be interesting to see if the captain can help improve his hitting performance.

It seems like a long time since Patterson did his Test Century against Sri Lanka. But at 28 he has time to come back.

Also noteworthy is the development of controller Tanveer Sangha. He has yet to make his debut in first-class (or List A). But has been included in the season’s first squad.

Australia radar

As so often, New South Wales will provide a large portion of the Australia squad. Outside of the main names (which includes the likely Test attack). Sean Abbott will be pushing hard for inclusion especially after the retirement of James Pattinson.

Moises Henriques, who was in the squad for the aborted South Africa tour. Could push for a batting slot although won`t be available until next month.
