    Yeah the BBL is cute and all that, but Finch, Warner and Watson have been beasts at much higher levels.

    Went by place of birth, which technically makes Moises ineligible but whatever, keeps noted Victorian Dan Christian out of the XI and noted Dutchman Tom Cooper out of the squad.

    Hodge is a pretty WTF selection.
    5-0

    I'd like everyone to sit down and think about the fact that Shaun Marsh is in the Test squad but not the T20I squad.

    I was going to raise this earlier but decided to choose my battles.

    Surely it's better for our sanity to not do this.

    I think White will be pretty stiff to miss out on a top four spot and I'd probably look at him opening. Boi really seems to have turned his game around.

    Surely the Maxwell batting anywhere up the order experiment is done for a while too. He'll play for his overs, but I'd bat him below Rad.

    Something like:

    Finch
    White
    Watson
    Warner
    Bailey
    Haddin
    Maxwell
    Faulkner
    Johnson
    Starc
    Hogg

    Would give us good variety and deep batting.

    Cutts not making the cut is a big miss for mine. Said to the missus as he walked out against the Poms "watch this boi clear the fence" and he didn't disappoint. Reckon he would have been a much better option than Christian. Hodge over Lynn was also a bit iffy.
