    May as well open with Davies tbh, then KP can rest. Not sure if this is a proper game though?

    Davies is a shout, if Pietersen goes big today then he can sit things out as well.

    Can always bring in Hildreth or Lyth from the academy team to rest the bats if they want to. Pretty certain that the bowling will be the same as what played against Aus A.

    Of the batsmen, Cook, KP and Trott don't need the practice, give Bell, Colly and the skipper a game.

    So bring in Morgan and Davies and a bloke from the development squad (or ask Andy Flower to have a go for a laugh).

    Entire bowling attack to rest again and same attack as played Australia A.

    The Australian state sides have bowled better to England then the test side have. Expect the media to pounce on the fact if Victoria bowl well against England.

    Haha, Flower playing would be truly awesome.

    Didn't Alec Stewart play one of our tour games in 06/07 or am I imagining it?

    Colly and Bell have spent so much time in the pavilion it's ridiculous. Have them up the order. Strauss can still captain. One more game for KP, confidence players like him thrive on middle time.

    Next week is the only respite the bowlers are getting before the end of the series, get them out. Another audition match for Tremlett & Bres.

    Morgan and Davies to play, why else are they on the tour?

    Strauss
    Davies
    Bell
    Colly
    Mogs
    KP
    Prior
    Bresnan
    Shaz
    Tremlett
    Monty
    What if all the switches get stuck on 'destroy'?

    Any idea what the Vics side will be like? Would Siddle play for example? What about Hodge, Dussey, McDonald, Hastings?

    Bloody hell, even North was cashing in against England (and Wales) in that game.

    What a difference four years makes.

    Doubt Siddle would play after putting in such a shift in the second test, Hodge has given FC cricket away & McDonald has a cracked pinky.

    Hussey minor and Hastings would be chomping at the bit tho, you'd imagine. The former especially could get get a gig this series.

    I'm quite looking forward to the end of these meaningless warm-ups where our batsmen fill their boots against 3rd-string opposition. Bring on the proper cricket
