Probably just pure speculation. Don't curse the selectors for something they haven't done yet

TBH I'm sure the selectors were going to pick Siddle even if both were fully fit, they have always had a fascination with him because he is an "all day bowler that hits the deck hard".

I don't care if a journalist or some odd job posts on a forum about it, I'll wait until its officially confirmed before I spray a rant
despite being consistent,the main reason why i desperately want Bollinger to play is becourse hes very potent against the tail.we are having massive problems in cleaning off the tails of late that cost us so many high profile test matches.i have no doubt what so ever that Doug would have surged through the tail in Mohali had he not injured him self
the rest have no idea on how to get the tail endears out.Siddle will serve in long hops to Swann and Broad im sure and will get belted.

Selectors may think that Bollinger's ability to bowl well in the second innings could be a factor if he is overlooked. Obviously in his last Test he pulled up lame and in the Shield match he got none-fa in the second dig.
It will certainly be harsh if he's not in the XI
tbh, without being in the set-up, that Siddle's been given absolutely every opportunity to play is a strong pointer to him lining up on Thu. It's probable Bollinger's still injured (side strains suck balls and take ages to heal) but they might be having a look to see if he can bowl well with the pain and inconvenience.
God the Australian selectors are idiots. Deserve to lose the test imo.
