    Think Channel Nine have it, and will show it on one of their extra channels.

    You reckon they'll show all sessions though?? I mean if they have the 300th repeat of 3 and half Men scheduled on GEM, do you reckon they'll show the cricket??? I've got my doubts.

    My missus has given me the choice between the week away in Adelaide for the test match or putting Austar on. Can't have both

    Can't miss the Adelaide test match, so have no choice but to put my faith in Ch 9 to not **** this up.

    Would put money on England with this team.

    The bowling attack will lack penetration, as others have mentioned Starc really hasn't delivered with the red ball much like Finn. This is much of the attack that was completely toothless for large periods of time in India and vs the Proteas (obviously Pattinson didn't play). Obviously **** fast bowling conditions vs India but but I would back a team with the above bowlers to look mediocre for periods of time in England too.

    As for the batting...
    Have you seen Watson's running and you're putting him with the tail? I don't like the top order for the same reasons for many of the same reasons as I don't like the Rogers selection... Too many openers.

    Its not my team but the one I'm guessing the selectors will pick. I have the same doubts about Watson batting with the tail. But really we don't have anyone atm. Plus we need Watto's bowling so he'll be fitted in somewhere.

    My team contains 2 changes. First up Usman at 6 but replacing Cowan. Watson opens with Warner. Then you'd have a batting line of Watson, Warner, Rogers, Hughes, Clarke, Usman, Haddin. Not concerned at all about Rogers at 3. I think the concern over 3 openers is a bit precious. Putting Rogers btwn Hughes and an early wicket with the ball swinging seems reasonable to me.

    Of the bowlers I was thinking of playing Harris first up but I don't think we cant afford him breaking down and losing the 1st test. I think we should try and hold Eng as best we can then play him later in the series as a weapon over 2 tests. Hopefully that can decide the matter. Would actually consider Bird and Lyon for the 1st test. So my side (as opposed to the one I think they'll pick) would be: Watson, Warner, Rogers, Hughes, Clarke, Usman, Haddin, Pattinson, Siddle, Lyon, Bird

    Khawaja must play. It has to be at the expense of either Hughes or Watson.

    Both rubbish
    Both left handers
    Both bat a bit
    Both called Mitchell

    Fair enough comparison IMO.

    IPL is the only live cricket we've had on FTA tv since 2005 though.

    Treat you as "The selectors" there. Totally agree about wattos bowling.

    How do you get only 3? Watson Hughes Cowan Rogers Warner. Less Cowan in yours.

    I don't think we'll win the first test without Harris anyway. I wouldn't trust this team to comeback later in the series either...
