    Inverarity says the likely balance of Australia's Ashes squad would be seven batsmen, two spinners, two keepers and six fast bowlers, with perhaps an all-rounder taking one of the specialist spots.

    Given this composition, I would go with

    Clarke
    Watson
    Warner
    Hughes
    Usman
    Smith
    Ferguson

    Wade
    Hartley

    Siddle
    Bird
    Starc
    Pattinson
    Harris
    Henriques

    This rogers **** sounds almost exactly like Fulton. Looks terrible, old, scores mountains of runs in FC, and everyone says he doesn't have the technique for the next level.

    He's the sort of **** we need in the squad atleast imo. Anyone know if Bird's injury will keep him out of the ashes?

    Another point I think I should make is that I'm seeing a lot of doubt that FC runs can translate to test runs. Although FC bowlers aren't as good as international bowlers, the FC pitches are much juicier than they used to be - probably more assistance for the bowlers than test match pitches. So don't go around thinking test cricket is an absolute alien game to FC batsmen, given the pitches they play on they should be fairly well prepared.

    Although Ricky Ponting went back and dominated the shield after a disappointing test series, Mike Hussey went back and only averaged mid 30s, but he was still playing really well just before he retired. And Kudos to the guy who mentioned Fulton, that's the point I'm trying to illustrate.

    I couldn't find any recent news on Bird, although I hear he is looking for a county gig. His injury was described as 6-8 weeks and that was before the first test in India, given the Ashes don't start till July I think he'l be fine.

    @Jesse_Hogan: Interesting, instead of free-to-air TV seemingly. RT @NHoultCricket: ECB to show Ashes live on YouTube this summer for free. In Europe only.


    Is this true?

    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
