Some terrible line-ups suggested in the above list.
The idea that so many want Ferguson in the side makes me cringe. It is sending such a bad message to every young cricketer. You don't need to score runs to make the Test team, just look classy. I hope he makes it one day, but players like Khawaja deserve a spot so much more. Ferguson needs to go back to SA and score 700+ runs to be considered a chance.
Also a massive laugh at those suggestion that Krejza return to the Test team. He was truly horrible last season. What is the point of turning a big off-break when half your deliveries are long hops and the other half are pitched up on the half-volley.
Does Hughes really have a claim to the next vacancy too? It seems like you can't get a team in the link Clapo provided without either Hughes or Ferguson in it for the most part. Reading those teams it would seem like we only have three potential replacements should we eventually drop North and/or Hussey.
Hughes has been out injured hasn't he?

He was picked with the hunch that outside the AUS selectors, only PrinceEWS on the internet or anywhere that i heard saw an ability to be effective againts international batsmen in certain conditions & they where proven right.
Although i advocate AUS not playing a spinner from now in most tests. Krejza should be one used from now on in a 5-man attack if a real turnning pitch comes about i.e SCG.
I really like Krejza. I remember watching his first couple of OD games for NSW and thinking that he was a special talent. He is the only decent spinner in Australia who has the capability to be a true world-class spin bowler. The issue is he lacks so many of the other attributes needed to compliment what he does well. He is still only 27, I believe he will return to the Test team at some stage, but at this moment he should not be near the selector’s radar until he starts to show some improvements in the core basics of his game.
I will be very frustrated if Krejza starts talking about his doosra again this season. Bowl an accurate off-break, and then things will change.
I don't understand how Hughes has such an amazing FC record with a weakness against the short ball.. isn't Australia exactly the place where such a weakness would get ruthlessly exposed and exploited? From what I've seen of him, he seems very partial to the cut shot so I'd hardly call him weak against the short pitched stuff..
Plus he played all of one full FC season before debuting, so there hadn't been a whole lot of time for opponents to work that out - especially as ill directed short balls got belted.
