    Time to sack George Bailey as Captain and player.

    2 failed campaigns,and his batting not up to it.
    Time for either Watson or White to take over with immediate effect.

    Isn't he ranked the best batsman in the world?

    This was posted in a T20 forum so I assumed we were talking about T20.

    i agree. every innings seems to lose that kick when he comes in, and we just can't seem to get it back.
    The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

    I suppose I should care but I just can't. Just so happy we won the ashes and beat the no.1 test team this summer when we weren't really expected to win anything. Recollections of Australia's test victories will keep me warm over a tedious winter. As for t20 it'd be my 5th favourite form of cricket. Right after indoor and French.

    Averaging 26.50 at a SR of 142ish in t20i cricket. Plus can field and is a pretty useful captain. No cause for alarm imo.

    He's had, what, 3 bad performances in Bangladesh within the context of us running up 170+ every time. The biggest problem we've got right now is that our bowlers contrive to concede more than that each game.

    Bailey is an excellent LO player and a very good leader, an important part of the Australian team.
    Is this your homework Larry?

    as per Dermo's quote, i cant understand why steve smith isnt included for Aus as he is just the type of player suited to this format imho..i dont get it...obviuosly i am looking at itfrom a neutral view and admit i dont have the benefit of domestic knowledge so apologies if he has bombed in the domestics..

    Wonder if this failure by Bailey will cost him a national contract,only 18 handed out.Steve Smith his replacement.

    Nah, he'd get one anyway for his ODI abilities. Would have to be the #1 or #2 ranked player in the format for Australia at the moment, which would secure him a low number contract at the very least.

    he'll save his spot with a meaningless 50 in the next game
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left
