He should have got a cricket-ball red one down the length of his bowling arm, imo.

I think Australia should drop Watson just to make it fair play.
Be VERY AFRIDI!!
Is Haddin the best twenty20 wk bat in the country? Not so sure.

Paine's on the tour I think - correct in thinking he isn't exactly shabby?
Haddin I feel is too reliant on the straight-down-the-ground shots IMO.

I'm starting to wonder the same thing. Despite being a mainstay of the 20/20 side, Haddin has really struggled to contribute much at all, as shown by an average of 18 and strike rate of ~113. Always found it a tad strange that he hasn't been able to make the necessary adjustments in the shortest form given his often unwarranted spontaneous flamboyance in tests. Paine isn't a stand out in 20/20's as far as I'm aware, but injecting some youth into the team wouldn't be the worst roll of the dice, especially considering Haddin's persistent struggles.
The opening spots are sewn up with Watto and Warner though. Whoever is keeper is normally going to be coming in later down the order and swinging from word go, without the luxury of field restrictions.
After much trial by fire, the selectors have finally found the right team. They are due no credit though because this team should have been picked last year and there were virtually no other choices.
The only change to be made is for Callum Ferguson to come back in for Clarke but still have the latter around the squad for his captaincy skills.
