Completely agree with Benchy, it's different for bowlers. Young quick with potential who's a strong chance to play for Australia in the future, getting him in the set-up early is unlikely to be anything other than beneficial. Jason Gillespie went to a World Cup and was never in with a chance of playing. Was just as much a left-field selection but it only helped him.
