    So are they going back on themselves, or are they half-heartedly appeasing the fans?

    Either way, doesn't send a great message.
    The squads bigger because its announced too early. & its only Haurtiz there messing with, Khawaja and Ferguson are battling to be potential Clarke/Katich Back up. Hauritz doesn't seem like competition is going to make him a better performer.
    With much love & smiles.

    Then why bother announcing a squad at all then?

    effed if I know, It just makes it official that Ferguson and Khawaja are in a battle for runs, instead of unofficial. its daft if you ask me.

    Must admit can't see either of them starting the series but would not be at all surprised if both came in at some stage as i can't see North and Hussey lasting it as their form is so erratic.

    Doherty is the one that surprised me as his record is awful,must really be a massive problem with spin in Australia if he is in the selectors minds.

Dropping Johnson (after what, 4 poor tests away from home?) for a half-fit Harris? So Dumb

    .
    Yep, some of the nuffies out there in the general public are frightening. Why would they even bother contributing a comment about which they evidently know nothing, let alone pay their hard earned to watch a match.

    This is why I left 606.
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.
