    **** off, you got me all excited then.

    As for his status, Jamie Cox was quoted saying he was fit to bat. As for bowling, you'd only do it in the fourth innings, wouldn't you?

    Seriously doubt he'd play. I'd have thought they'd just as likely bump Haddin up to six and include MacDonald if they were for some reason to make a change.

    You'd hope Huss gets more than one innings, tbh. Dare say he's got more FC runs in England than any other Aussie squad member and quite possibly some of the English batters too.

    Haa...this is why the non selection of the extra batsman in Hodge or D Hussey was blunder. Of course i'd still back M Hussey to come good. But in the unlikely event that ENG bowling attack does come good in this series or one of bats gets injured a solid back-up would be needed.

    Watto although he does have the potential to bat in the top 5 in tests, isn't there yet. His ONLY role is to be the all-rounder batting @ 6.

    Would be an utterly dire selection if true.

    Of course now that I've said that, should it be true Watson will probably score an unbeaten double ton...

    Haha yeah, would be a shocking decision, not least because Hussey is the 2nd best Australian batsman.

    Now, few are bigger Watto fans than I, but if this happens for Lords I'll suffer a fractured vertebre from the resultant facepalm.

    I don't see it happening. I have said numerous times that throughout or at the conclusion of this series if Hussey fails to make runs he should, and probably will, be dropped, but I didn't expect it to happen after the first test, if of course it happens.

    I'd assume is this happens, North will manage at 5, with Watson coming in at 6 as a pure batsmen, leaving the rest of the team the same, unless Hauritz and Clark swap.

    Apparently Watto was in for Lord's, but damaged his thumb opening a jar of hair product.
