    I thought I'd read that Watson definitely won't be fit for the Perth test - is that now in question? Anyway, I'd go for Jaques, particularly if Hodge is also injured.

    Hey whats your thoughts and who will replace Marto in the ODI team. Will Watson drop down to 4 and Hayden, Jaques or Katich open?

    You can only hope. That would be ideal, though I can see Hussey being moved up to four.

    Gilchrist
    Hayden
    Ponting
    Watson
    Hussey
    Symonds
    Clarke
    Hogg/Johnson
    Lee
    Bracken
    McGrath

    would be my ideal line-up.

    If they pick Symonds for the third Test, it will be our best fielding side in a Test Match ever IMO, or close to.

    Symonds and Voges in for Martyn and Tait, as it turns out. Hard to say exactly who replaced Martyn, but I bet nobody picked Voges.

    Voges!!! That's a shock. He's been doing well but still fairly unproven for mine, about four or five guys ahead of him IMO. Hodge, Cosgrove, North, Jaques. He'd be on par with Katich.

    Selecting Voges is the direst(dunno if it's a word, but it is now) decision ever, even if he doesn't play (which i highly doubt he will). The guy has simply been a beneficiary of the WACA roads in the past 2 seasons imo.

    Looks likely we'll be seeing shortpitched713 eat his keyboard as well...

    I posted that after the fact, so it's not really a "prediction". The only prediction I made on the subject was that they wouldn't pick Jaques in the middle order, which turned out to be right.

    Solid picks though, aside from Bracken.

    Fair enough. Haha, I really though Bracken was a good shout for Australia`s middle-order.

    Wow, interesting selections. You would expect that Symonds will probably play - in hindsight, as a stopgap while Watson's not available (and given the selectors' obvious obsession with the flexibility an allrounder can provide), I guess this should have been more obvious. Wasn't though, to me at least.

    Speaking of flexibility, I hope shortpitched713's got one of those bendable, rubber keyboards, 'cause I think he might end up chowing down.

    indeed, Voges... cant see how they picked him really, ahead of Jaques, Cosgrove, Katich. Symonds will play and bat at 6 i would say with Husey and Clarke both moving up a spot.

    Could well be our best fielding side ever fielded - one of the most agressive batting sides ever too.
