- Dont think Hughes would offer much more than Warner in T20s.
- Clarke no doubt be should replaced by Hodge.
- Ponting can play T20s, but the fact that given AUS ridiculous schedule in the last 4 years - leaving them to miss T20 or when they play them they are basically treated as exhibiton matches.
- Dont think Ferguson game suits T20, he would be another Clarke really.
The prob with Australia's batting in this tournament compared to IND & SA. Is the unlike them we don't have a top 7 of batsmen who can truly get moving from ball one. Losing Marsh, Symo was a huge blow & the selectors not picking Hodge obviously was idiotic.
