    Are the Ashes being telecast on commercial TV in Australia?

    However, it is a surprise that Marsh is the name on selectors' lips after the left-hander averaged just 19 in the Sheffield Shield last season.

    Marsh's stunning Big Bash form, combined with promising signs of improvement late in the Shield season, have selectors talking.

    Another thing counting against Khawaja's Ashes selection is a lack of top-level cricket last summer, when he spent much of the season as a travelling Australian reserve.
    There's that awesome using T20 form as a gauge for Test cricket again. He averaged 19 ffs.

    I would be surprised, but very happy, is Shaun Marsh gets the spot in the Ashes squad.

    I can see how people would say he doesn't deserve it looking at pure aggregate in FC cricket in recent times, but that's a very narrow way of looking at it.

    I've never ever been one to use short form performances as a reason to pick someone in long form cricket, however Marsh is a different matter. Everyone can see how much of a talent he is, and the last half of the season he just brained attacks in all short forms and he also played well in the FC fixture during that time.

    He did everything he possibly could given his schedule and he's always been a confidence player. Marsh had a bad run for a short time at test level and was ill disciplined in domestic cricket, but I have faith that he has sorted that out and turned the corner. I'd go as far as to say Shaun Marsh playing his best cricket is comfortably in Australia's best XI given the lack of middle order players. He's a much better selection than Chris Rogers seeing as though we have four players who play his role better than him currently in the team.

    Alex Doolan is stiff if he misses out, and I've been a massive fan of him on here, but he didn't do enough at the pointy end last season where he had a chance to really force the selectors hands, so if he doesn't get a gig he only has himself to blame.

    Andre's mail about Brad Haddin may be right, and holy **** I hope it is. It would be like Christmas.

    Didn't Marsh score a blistering 99* in the Big Bash that convinced the selectors to bring him back in for the Indian series. Masterstroke. At least then he'd come of good form in his first few tests before getting injured (again). Now he has even less to recommend him. He's ****, and he will always be a ****. His greatest talent is for wasting his talent. No matter how desperate we are, we ain't that desperate.

    Well articulated by both you.

    I especially like how howard can rubbish Marsh's first class ability but recommend Callum Ferguson's with a straight face.

    I hate the ****. A lot. And he will never admit he's wrong ever. But I agree with almost all of Benchy's posting in the last 2 pages.

    Marsh = proven Test match failure

    Ferguson is only a potential Test match failure

    Seriously though, his only international exposure has seen him excel

    With Pond (little Swamp) it's not just his FC record though...it's an accumulation of things

    Marsh has also made runs at test much level. Do we say that Marsh = proven test match run scorer.

    Marsh has had far greater success at international level than Ferguson, it's just that Marsh has had an opportunity to also go through stages of poor form at international level.

    I'm not saying Marsh should waltz into the starting XI but if he scores runs in the tour games (provided he gets on the tour) he has every right to have another go because he's an asset to Australia when he's playing well.

    We need to pick injury prone batsman to complement our injury prone fast bowlers and base it on T20 form, on Warne's recommendation, who should have been picked in the sub con and benched for hard or seaming conditions, while overlooking youger players who averaged more than 19 who happens to be a Western Australian like the head selector. Marsh ticks all the boxes.

    Brilliant, brilliant

    Seriously though, after being dropped don't you need to go back and demonstrate that you've ironed out the shortcomings in your game; that you've addressed your deficiencies? Marsh has not done that. He's returned to the domestic FC scene and barely had an impact.

    If he gets picked tomorrow, I'll hand my badge in.
