    Likely team?

    Warner
    Watson
    Clarke
    White
    Hussey, D
    Hussey, M
    Haddin
    Smith
    Johnson
    Lee
    Tait

    As much as he shouldn't, Nannes will probably miss for Lee.

    Not sure how to take the Lee call. Yeah he's good, but he's hardly bowled for ages.
    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.

    IPL form would see Nannes streets ahead. Hopefully for him that hand jolt can be shaken off easily.

    A team with Lee has appeal. But until he starts doing something for Punjab, there's little justification to have him play in the Caribbean - especially with Tait and Johnson in the same squad.

    As much as I love the guy, Lee's selection is a joke.

    In the champions league he hardly went for more than 20 runs in a game. If he can find some form for Punjab he should be picked in the 11.

    The 3 quicks in the best XI would have to depend on form (On current T20 form Nannes would be first picked imo). Would love to see all 4 of them in the one side though. Shame the pitches wont be quick.

    He's basically bowled 6.4 overs since December.

    All for Punjab

    0/63

    He did play a lot of games @ Delhi, where 6 runs an over was a defendable score.

    I'd almost expect Christian in the XI ahead of possibly Michael Hussey with Haddin mocing up. But if the pitches are as bad as they say they are then I think Mussey will play every game. I never thought I'd say but I'd play Smith ahead of Hauritz as well because I quite rate Dussey's bowling and no doubt Clarke will bowl himself as well.

    Know he was baggage (TSTL), but after seeing him today I reckon Symonds really should be there, pisshead or not.

    Better 2020 player than anyone in the XV IMHO.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Absolutely agree with that.

    What's the thinking with the bowlers? Gone for the guys who can give up 10+ runs an over without even trying?

    Why wouldn't Bollinger be in there?

    If the bowling attack ends up being Smith, Johnson, Lee, Tait and Watson... I mean come on they're not that stupid surely?

    Bolly so far in his career hasn't been very successful in limited overs in Aussie domestics. Obviously he has the ability to do well though.

    Maybe, but they could also on their day bowl a team out for 10. I would definately have Nannes in the top side though.
