    This is quite ridiculous.
    Agreed

    It is ridiculous to advocate the selection of a bloke that has scored 364 fc runs @ 17 since the 2011 SA tour

    That is such a trash post and addresses nothing I have brought up with regards to the selection of Marsh.

    Your next line will be about having a korma with Geoff Marsh who said that he reckons Shaun's hammy is a bit too dicey for the series in England, but I will jump in and say that Marsh has just passed a fitness test.

    We shouldn't be picking Michael Clarke for the tour either ftr. Has no match fitness or form.

    Statements that are prefaced by "I have faith" tells us everything we need to know about your analysis of Marsh

    Anyway, last time I checked this was a test tour

    Shaun Marsh is a pretty ordinary longer form batsman and there is not one single statistic one can point to that suggests otherwise

    Having said that, IF Marsh played fantastically well in the Champions Trophy and was selected on the basis of that form, then I could live with it

    However, that obviously will not be the case

    As such, they have to judge him on the basis of woeful fc form, shocking injury and disciplinary records plus a few scores in hit and giggle

    Sorry, but I dont have faith and nor should the selectors

    Agree with the idea that we shouldn't be naming our squad now. Seems far too early.

    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

    don't think anyone would doubt marsh's ability or potential even if he is 30 or whatever. still has potential, where he should have by now a record. it was this season gone that he was dropped from his state side, and i can't see how you can on the one hand praise selectors of the national team for standing down players with a lack of discipline recently and advocate the selection of someone who has shown a penchant for a lack of discipline himself. and has done nothing to knock doors down. i'm with spikey. voges, bailey, doolan all ahead of smarsh even if there is only one there with the same amount of talent or potential.

    lol uvelocity. Saying that once you drop a player for disciplinary reasons he should be banished for the rest of eternity.

    Marsh could not have done more since returning to WA. This year his only FC match he made 80 odd. He averaged 50 odd in the big bash and has averaged over 70 in list A for the season. How is it his fault that he hasn't played more first class cricket this year?

    Pick him in the squad and if he makes runs in the tour matches and his competitors don't he plays in the XI, simple as that.

    Bailey has been knocking the door down though!!!!

    lol rest of eternity. benchmark00 with the timeless tactic of reducing to the ridiculous. fortunately no words in my mouth could possibly be as ridiculous as his own.

    how long ago was it that smarsh was playing second xi cricket for the sand chokers, the recipients of australias most hopeless cricket team 2012? november. too soon matey.

    That is such a uvelocity argument. Because he played 2nd XI cricket at the start of last season he shouldn't be picked for a squad that plays it's first official game in July.

    since when is november the start? look we wouldn't play usman because he wouldn't work hard. so why would you introduce a bloke who has made a career of that. if we want someone with potential, lets go with the best young bat we've seen which is doolan.

    if we are going to admit that we are lacking in talent we are accustomed to and want to develop and maintain a successful culture, we can't afford to hand blokes like smarsh an easy pass. otherwise lets pick him and cosgrove too and let them all do what they want.

    I'm going to go out on a limb and say you don't know how old Doolan is.
