    So stop trying to act like i am doing some great swing merchant a disservice. Yes i was exaggerating, however 99% of these comments are exaggerated. I'm sure i could find an example in atleast one of your last 5 posts.

    Goughy (Kev, not Darren) can't recall so much as one delivery that he's swung in his life, IIRR from a discussion we once had.

    Might be mistaken mind, and I doubt he recalls every delivery he's ever bowled.

    If Watson replaces Hussey, can we merge this with the "Selection Errors" thread?

    I'm honestly not sure. There's times when he's so sceptical of the merits of swinging the ball that I wonder whether he'd regard doing so less as a badge of honour as a banishment to the naughty corner.

    As I say, we could only do so if Watson actually failed. Because regardless of how poor a decision is recognised as at the time it's taken, if hindsight makes it seem a good one then it's a good one as far as some people are concerned.

    Fortunately this time such nonsense wasn't given the chance to happen. The right decision was made, and Hussey was retained.

    Haddin is the reserve batsman on this trip, if Hussey or someone else got injured bring in Manou at least he doesn't give away byes whenever the ball does something slightly out of the ordinary.

    That's actually a fair call. Haddin is by no means next in line in the pecking order of specialist batsmen, but could do a good enough job in a pinch.

    Before the start of this test would have made no sense to make a change like this, but its getting more and more evident that things just aren't going Hussey's way atm, he is trying his level best, but still he is struggling, so as harsh as it may be, dropping Hussey in favor of Watto would be fair enough, but before that Watto would have to prove his form and fitness in the practice game.

    If the core-group still wants to back Hussey, then North would have to be the unlucky one to miss out, if Watto is fit, he has to play, his all-round skills would certainly lift the Australian side.

    If they had to replace Hussey then they should use his brother or Hodge.
