    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

    I can't believe the possible squad Cricinfo gave and can only hope that won't happen. Marsh is absolute puss and I was glad to see the back of Haddin, the VC is not a huge deal, I don't see why they have to basically draft someone into the team just to fill it. Particularly when the guy is 35 and he won't be there long.
    There are two colours in my head

    I think we're aware it isn't 2001 but that doesn't mean its gotta be Marsh. I'm amazed that an injury prone has been who never was is being pumped for the ashes after averaging 19 in the last fc season. Amazed that a bloke who quivers under the short stuff is being suited up for a series against a team with one of the best pace attacks atm.

    Just abt anyone else is better. Including Cosgrove. Whats wrong with him? In comparison to Marsh I mean. Is it bcos he's fat and unfit? Atleast he's fitter than Marsh. Is it bcos he's an opener? Whats the prob guys? Its not as if we have many options there either. Hughes is our no.3 not an opening option. Watson will be picked initially if only for his bowling. We need someone if Patpat or Starkers cark it. Cowan and Warner will open and we need a 6. Seems like that spot (or 4) is the path of least resistance for Watson's inclusion. So why not Cossie as the 3rd opener? Atleast he can score runs and get through a day without a boowa. Or just do the normal thing and pick Usman ffs. Or Rogers. Or Doolan. Even Ferguson. Anyone but Marsh. How lucky does he get? Unfit, out of form, can't play the quicks but gets Warne's tick and the selector's favour bcos he flogged a few in the form of cricket that is the worst possible guide for test selection. Forget Argus. We need a good old Stalinst purge.

    Unless it's the Waca, MJ should never be selected to play the Poms again and Hilf is almost in the same boat

    if we can get the icc to adopt a two new ball policy, the playing of 4 or 5 openers in our team will be a strategy emulated all over the cricket world

    Isn't there meant to be a A tour before the Ashes. Surely you would pick the Ashes squad after or during the the A tour and give everyone a chance of selection in the last couple spots. It looks like the A tour is just glorified tour matches for non ODI players.

    Why pick a squad so far out?

    I don't agree with Marsh's selection. If your going to pick Marsh on the back of one FC games and good limited over form. Then what about Khawaja good form during the season in his limited FC games as well. Even though he got shafted around by the selectors he was still one of leading runs scores in FC and limited overs cricket. Averaged high 30s and low 40s in all three formats. Yet because he doesn't score runs as fancy as Marsh, his runs don't have the same value.

    But I do agree who ever they pick has more negatives then positives.
