    Paine is about 500-1 to be a starter for mine.

    I predict the then 38 year old to be axed.

    I'll take those odds. Selectors love him.

    Spaghettio. It will seem a natural position for Clarke soon. The player who really needs to step it up in my lineup is Watson IMO.

    So its a bet?? Doubt you'd pay me 4K. I'll be able to get a Big Deal with the Rooster Roll and Coke for a year with my winnings.

    Don't worry about the $4k, I doubt you'll pay me the $8.

    Of course I would pay $8 if Paine isn't in the team.

    wade is leaving a paine recall in the ODI side well and truly open. things could move swiftly from there. although i guess it would require paine actually playing a good OD knock. but if that happens...i mean they love the dude. heaven knows why.
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Srs though... are you banking on Wade being injured or do you think Paine will over take him and Haddin (the latter possible I suppose) as well as him out performing Nevill in the Shield season?

    Paine to overtake Wade. I'm not sold on Wade's keeping. I would be very surprised if many people are. I know Haddin has a contract, but I can't see him getting another chance. Paine is a Cricketer who the selectors want in and around our setup. I think Wade's performances in ODIs have been quite poor and will give Paine an opportunity again. If he does reasonably opening the batting there and keeps well and then averages around 40 or so for Tassie in the Shield and perhaps scores that elusive second first class century I just think we will pick him.

    If the selectors were seriously considering Nev at the moment, they would have picked him on the recent A tour.

    unless nev does some heroics with the bat (which he will so i guess we should stop here) i think it'll be wade v paine. it should almost certainly be wade (in terms of actually deserving it). but you never know, paine could actually score another ton and wade might get ****ed by steyn so hard it's an easy enough switch for them. i think nufan's a brave man to put him in there, but i think you should knock it down to at least 100/1.


    and yeah the way paine got to waltz his way into the aus a team sorta makes this not that far off reality...

    BTW, like I said earlier Watson is the player who really needs to lift if he wants to be included as the team is probably looking for a left handed bat somewhere in that middle order. Hussey is obviously an option or hopefully under the influence of Lehmann, Usman Khawaja at 5 or 6.

    Reckon 10-1 would be decent odds to get on Paine.

    Paine was seen as a god under the old management team, it has to be noted.

    I think Wade's a bad gloveman, but Paine isn't exemplary either and he can't bat. Wade has a test century, he's cemented. How many Australian keepers have you seen dropped because of their glove work? If Wade is getting dropped it's because he's not making runs.
