    Don't think that's the side though, Beer will play instead of Hilf or Siddle I think, probably the former.

    It's certainly an entertaining selection. Didn't think they'd go left-field...O'Keefe though surely.

    Now to read the rest of this thread, which is sure to be equally as entertaining as that selection.

    Beer's in, so Warne's a selector now ? Cool

    That would be a good selection

    And however many hours later since I posted that I'm still going wtf. Must be some sort of nightmare and when I wake up the correct left arm spinner will have been chosen.

    7. Smith
    8. Johnson
    9. Harris
    10. Hilfenhaus
    11. Siddle

    That gives 6 bowlers to get the 20 wkts and the batting is not weakened (just needs Ponting to fire)

    6
    I count three who can take wickets

    Isn't Beer in for Hilfenhaus too?

    I'm protesting against the inclusion of Beer by drinking wine tonight. Seriously this is such a bizarro selection, does anytime know how he is in the field?

    FMD I don't get why the selectors like bringing in a rookie spinner, no way would a batsman come into the Sid after playing just 5 matches.

    I've asked my mum to buy me "The Encyclopedia of Australian Test Spinners 2007-" for Xmas.

    If I start reading it Xmas night, I'll be just about ready for a new book for Xmas 2011.

    Perfect analogy form my friend about this selection panel (or the team itself, potato pattato) - "this runaway train just caught fire"

    There is a young local greek lad playing grade cricket in Adelaide by the name of Yiros who could follow beer.

    Gotta wait for the day/night tests first

    I actually want Australia to lose by another innings in Perth. Shake the foundations and make sure Andrew Hilditch is never able to show his face in public ever again. Not even drawing the longest of bows over the past few hours in playing devils' advocate have I been able to rationalise this selection decision.

    Holland got Cook out today, he must be the favourite to play the Boxing day test now.

    Beer has just played 5 first class games and has done nothing of note but still he is now going to be the part of the Australian test side in this all important Ashes test, wow... I mean there is just no ****ing sense in this.
    FFS.... if they had to take a punt with an unknown quantity then they should have just gone ahead and picked Boyce, if nothing else atleast he is a wrist spinner.....

    You'll need to balance the team out with some youth that can blossom in the future. So I'll put my hand up too. With the help of the physios and team management I reckon I can get my pace up to pushing 115kph. I've also been out of the game almost as long as Warney.

    Well I read that they sense Beer could become a really good spinner in the near future. I don't know why though.

    Hughes is very lucky to get in one feels after a very poor domestic season. Hope he rises to the occasion, he's known as a big match performer.
