You Stephen, asked the question: Why they think that Hughes would be a better pick than Rogers?
I've told you why and if they are performing at the same level why not pick a young guy when the rest of your top 6 is getting on in age already.
Like if we were Bangladesh and it was Shakib Hughes and Rakib Rogers to chose from, you might go for Rakib since we'd need a more experienced guy in the lineup,but with Katich, Ponting, Hussey [3 out of the 4 certainties] at least 33 years old you have to start picking a few younger guys.
FTR Bangladesh would chose both players but you get my point.
The selectors are not going to pick a Hodge or Rogers just on the off chance that they will play in a big tournament overseas except for when they represent Vic in the next Champions Trophy.
