If Hilditch was around Xavier Doherty would be in the first Test due to his good spell against South Africa in the T20 World Cup. Thank **** he's no longer.
Pattinson must play, it annoys me a bit that the media are grouping the bowlers into young vs experienced. For me Pattinson is pretty much a finished product while Cummins has a fair few question marks despite an unbelievable Test debut.
Reckon barring injury - 1. Cowan 2. Warner 3. Watson 4. Ponting 5. Clarke 6. Hussey 7 Wade. 8. Siddle 9. Pattinson 10. Hilfenhaus 11. Lyon 12. Starc is paying about $1.09 with the bookies for our First Test squad.
