    Will hold my hand up and say I'd never even heard of Beer until Warne mentioned him the other day.

    Assume he's a spinner, what's he bowl? Can he bat?

    Smith at 6 or 7 a pretty big call IMHO. The boy clearly has talent but, based on what I've seen so far, maybe doesn't have the shot selection of a top order batsman just yet.

    this must be a cunning plan to get Warne to return for the MCG test.

    Beer? WTF? He's been around for 5 minutes and hasn't been that good either. Dire pick.

    Queue 84390852943028 articles being written up to tell the general public who Beer is and how he wasn't expecting a test call up.
    Makes no sense to pick him over O'Keefe if they are taking a chance on someone....
    Maybe they thought the public wants Warne, Warne says pick Beer.....next best thing!

    I'm hoping they see something in Beer. I haven't seen much of him, though.

    Smith certain to play then?

    Any chance they will not play Beer and go for 4 pace bowlers?

    Oh no Australia really are done for. I think i might jump on the Bring Back Warne bandwagon if this continues.

    Hauritz's test career must be officially over after this. He scores 160, takes 5 at the WACA and 3 today and still gets his spot taken by a guy who made his first class debut a couple of months ago. Must have take a big **** in Ponting's coffee one morning.

    It's extrodinarily harsh on the guy, and this comes from someone who never really rated him.

    Left arm orthodox. Bats ten in club cricket (which is the highest level of cricket he's played with a big enough sample size) - worst batsman in the squad I'd say.

    Smith seems certain unless they plan on promoting having a massive tail.

    Yes IMO. Beer's likely to play but I wouldn't put my house on it at all.

    WTF....Beer is 26, with 5 FC games, 14 runs @ 3.50 and 16 wkts @ 39.93 with best of 3-39

    Why would they not bring in O'Keefe

    Ponting to retire soon after the ashes (if not right after)
    Hauritz to be recalled for the first series Ponting isn't captain (providing Hauritz doesn't lose form majorly)

    Thats my prediction.

    Beer took wickets in a practice game against England iirc.
    Can't remember how many
