    I'm not sure about that mate, there certainly have been times when Siddle has bowled brilliant spells where he has been unlucky to not pick more wickets, but he has also bowled some spells where he has been really erratic.

    So in case Australia don't consider dropping a batsman in favor of a bowler, then Siddle could be the bloke who might find his place under threat.

    Yeah i think (assuming Lee is not fit) that Clark should come in for Siddle. Hilfy is more likely to be picked along side Clark because he is less similar than Siddle.

    On backup, it has to be Bollinger.

    Nannes is now a Dutchie, so how can he play for Australia anytime soon?

    Maybe if Australia passed him to the left-hand side?

    Holland is an Associate side. If he was called up for Australia, no one would stand in his way.

    If Johnson doesn't perform with the ball in net sessions, is dropping him an option? As much as i enjoy watching him bowl, his is obviously struggling of late.

    Probably Clark in for Johnson.

    If someone makes a crazy apparent-suggestion, even when the post is directly above yours, it's a good idea to quote it so as the near-inevitable case of it being edited doesn't make you look foolish.

    Nannes is 100% Australian, born there and lived there his entire life, and should never be playing for Holland. Would only be glad to see Australia call-up such an unproven player because it'd mean this nonsense of him being picked for Holland is put to bed.

    I dunno - Graham Gooch may have been better than all of that lot with his eyes closed in his heyday, but I reckon he might go worse now he's in his mid-50s.

    Well done on not being tempted to go for David Gower though - can see that backfiring spectacularly, given he's been keeping his eye in in the com-box all these years, cunningly waiting for the call, a trick I see Warne is now copying.
