    Is that being played at the WACA or at another ground? If it's at the WACA they're taking the piss with two spinners, surely.

    I think they've picked Ashton Turner as a batsman.

    Allenby getting a game is awesome. Brockley will probably start a thread about it though.

    It's still a good indicator when you take into account how poor his record in domestic one day cricket is, especially the first time he got selected as he wasn't fit to bowl at the time.

    Nice triple post. Love how excited PEWS gets when it comes to domestic players that he somehow knows quite a bit about.

    Got so excited that I replied to a two month old post from Top_Cat.

    But of all finger spinners in Aus, would Turner not be one of the better ones at using bounce?
    There are two colours in my head

    Yeah; I still don't think he'll bowl much though. They've picked him as a batting allrounder, I reckon he'll bat top 6.

    He's still a finger spinner though.

    England XI Joe Root, Michael Carberry, Jonathan Trott, Ian Bell, Gary Ballance, Ben Stokes, Matt Prior (wk/capt), James Anderson, Steven Finn, Boyd Rankin, Chris Tremlett

    A lot of fringe players given a go. Excellent opportunity for Carberry, Ballance, Stokes, Finn, Rankin, Tremlett. A bad game and they probably won't play a game again before the first test or at least will be only playing because they're resting the 1st xi. But a good one and they could come into some serious consideration for the 6th batsman or 3rd seamer.

    I know Pietersen has only just arrived in Australia, but surely a game wouldn't have done him any harm.

    I don't know what to really make of Ballance and Stokes playing ahead of Bairstow. Guess it shows he's no longer the incumbent of the number 6 spot.

    Right and proper too - done nowhere near enough to warrant the length of run he's had IMO.
