    With our middle order woes, i'd give Paine a go as just a batsmen. I don't know how good he is in the field though.

    Terrible idea IMO.

    AWTA. If I was an Aussie fan I'd rather stick with North and Hussey than bring Paine in as a batsman.

    As long as White's not in the top 6, I'm happy.

    That is the worst idea. Paine has always been a wonderful to watch batsmen, who simply fails to consistently score big runs. Until he starts scoring plenty of runs for Tasmania, then he will remain our backup wicketkeeper.

    I would much prefer Wade over Paine if selecting purely based on batting ability.

    To be fair a 30 (70) is the kind of thing that could really help stop a collapse.

    However given that there are more than a few around who could do that better...

    Jeez, just saw the scorecard and I was shocked!! Expected better from the batsmen tbh, so is the pitch a juicy one or has England just bowled well!?

    Right now McGrath would be a better bet than Hussey that boy can't even get past double figures lately.

    Wonder if Ferguson/Usman had at least made it to 50 today, how much deliberation the selectors would have had in regards to Hussey's position. I still think he's a lock for the 1st test at least, but a score from either of those 2 today and who knows.

    The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

    Nicholas on the money about that ball, really wasn't a great ball; short ball down legside.

    Didn't realise that O'Keefe has only 9 FC games to his name. Been around a long time; all the more reason why his FC average should be viewed with some suspicion; especially with the effect of 7/30 on a ridiculous burner.

    In a shock twist, Tim Paine is dismissed once set. Rarity.

    Gutsy knock by Smith, still manages to play his shots too. Great stuff.
