Ryan Harris and Peter Siddle were the pick of our quicks at Adelaide Oval and these four make up the pace attack for the Perth Test match.

    He might have meant "3 of these 4 will make up the pace attack", but I still find it hard to believe they'll give a grade cricketer a baggy green.
    Well they gave a grade cricketer a place in the squad? If they are prepared to go that far who knows really.

    So stereotypical that Beer is the name of an Australian cricketer.

    If they see something in the guy and want him around the squad to carry the drinks and get to know everybody I don't mind all that much. It's still ridiculous but at least it's not directly compromising our ability to win the Ashes.

    still makes no sense to me though, i know your trying to justfy it but if their just bringing him in for that why not wait until the one day series and do it then or play him in a t20.

    Seriously, if the talent/potential wasn't there among Australian spinners, I wouldn't mind the selectors taking a punt on Beer. But there is something there but the selectors are too stubborn to admit they were wrong, in Hauritz's case, and too god-knows-what to pick O'Keefe.

    Not saying Hauritz is a world beater and the answer to all our spin problems mind you, but the bloke does have an impressive record at home for Australia, has performed well against England, and is clearly in form with both bat and ball. GAGF, Andrew Hilditch.

    Beer has done absolutely ****ing nothing to even be on the selector's radar

    Has to be one of the darkest days in all my years watching Oz cricket

    Like Dean Jones, he reckoned the only thing standing in his way is that he would insist on being captain

    I dunno you still have some world class young talent coming through like Khuwaja and Hughes this is just a rough patch in the middle until they all come of age.

    I think its completly unfair to suggest that Hilfenhaus is a just a swing bowler, for me has has taken a lot of his wickets with his accuracy and bumper, and along with Bollinger he is probably our only fast bowler who can perform in all sorts of conditions.

    Smith got a for-four the other day, he can do the spinning if need be.

    The other problem for Beer is that Ponting has so little patience with the slow men.

    If Beer starts flat (pardon the pun) Ponting will either:

    • Change the field
    • Change plans
    • Take him off
