    I'd suggest they'll go with Harris. If you have both Tait and Nannes in the line-up, you'll need a bit more batting and Harris is a better bat and field. Bollinger in slightly better form overall (perhaps not in LO matches) with the ball but I'd think Harris' all-round qualities would see him get the nod.

    FFS, why not pick Bollinger? One of the best in the world at the moment. Jesus christ!

    Harris
    Nannes
    Tait
    Bollinger

    Should be the bowling lineup, which along with Watto is an excellent attack save for the lack of spin.

    Bollinger has his good and bad days at the death, he's not really suited to it but at least he's a bit more awkward. Harris on the other hand is just beautiful to smash out of the park. Not too fast, skids on nicely, no variety. The batting isn't really a factor for me.

    If they plan on bowling Harris out at the start, then Bollinger is still better. If they plan on bowling Harris a couple at the death. Bollinger is much better.

    Only one will be selected and it's Harris

    Bollinger is a better left armer than Johnson and Nannes

    Harris is more reliable than Lee

    Guys like Christian are barely serviceable state players

    Oz selectors dont watch cricket

    Calm down... Im sure the selectors were tossing up between him and Harris. One of the best in the world is a slight overstatement though.

    Reading Scaly's assessment of Harris, then looking at Harris's International Stats so far... just have to laugh really.

    And why no Jonners Pasag?

    Not giving Hauritz enough T20 games has seen Aus left with a substandard spinning option in a tournament where spin will be vital.

    Yeah, well, obviously he had to be given first crack. But because they never played him enough, he hasn't had a chance to either improve, or be exposed, and play a spinner more suited to the format.

    The funny part is that people have been saying spin is vital in the WI for some time. Yet big dumb OZ pick 4 quicks; one is crocked and was out of form anyway, the other is likely to pop something any day, another is a pretty average T20 bowler and has just had a lay-off (but has a really cool tatt) and the other is, well, Shaun Tait. But dey is really fast!!

    I'm with Social, I wonder whether the selectors have actually been watching cricket. Picking Lee was comfortably the worst idea and probaby the worst thing for him too because, as in England, he busted a gut to get back early and injured the same damn arm again.

    FFS.
