Both need to focus on the longer form of the game exclusively.
Lee?! Lee is one of the best ODI bowlers in the world, has the best strike rate of any bowler with over 100 ODI wickets (and the second best with 50+ after Bond), and his economy rate and accuracy are improving all the time. The McGrath/Lee new ball partnership is the key to Australia's chances in the next world cup, and dropping Lee from ODIs would be inexplicable.
Agreed about Hayden though. Open with Clarke or Hussey or Katich and get Hodge in.
