    Is this a ****ing joke:

    "Apart from anointing Rogers, Lehmann said that he was considering a five-man bowling attack for Trent Bridge, which would likely have Brad Haddin and the uncapped James Faulkner batting at Nos. 6 and 7."

    Also, "Ryan Harris and Jackson Bird have slim chances of squeezing into the bowling quartet for Trent Bridge, but the resting of James Pattinson, Mitchell Starc, Peter Siddle and the spinner Nathan Lyon for the tour match in Worcester is the strongest indication yet that they will be the frontline attack for Australia."

    Really? Starc is gonna play over Harris? Wtf is going on here. If I made a list of the capped bowlers who I think would be most likely to leak runs it would be 1. Starc 2. Pattinson 3. Siddle 4. Harris 5. Bird.

    To be fair this is media speculation, not a direct quote from Lehmann.

    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

    If they actually go in with 5 bowlers (+Watson), with two of the frontline ones being Starc and Siddle who are both very unlikely to get injured during the match, it could almost rival every other dreadful decision that has been made in the Ashes in recent times. Yep, let's unnecessarily bulk out our bowling department and bolster our already fragile batting line-up by making Faulkner a main batsman. Good **** right there.

    I would be very surprised if this whole 'Faulkner at 7' thing happens. I'm assuming a reporter asked Boof if he would do it and he nonchalantly said "it's a possibility".

    With Watto/Rogers opening, does anybody else see the end of the road of Cowan? Unless he makes a big score in the next tour match I'm really not sure what they can do with him. Hughes should stay as a long term option at number 3 imo, and surely Khawaja is more versatile in the middle order.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see Boof go with

    Rogers
    Watson
    ?
    Clarke
    Hughes
    ?
    Haddin


    So that could leave the 3 slot open for Cowan if he goes big this game, or to Khawaja, while 6 goes to Warner or Smith. If he plays Forkers Faulkner at 7 then we have some serious problems

    Yeah, that would be my core. The two other slots should, IMO, go to two of Cowan, Smith and Warner. But I have a horrible feeling he'll go with Khawaja and Faulkner.

    Cowan averages 32 in Test cricket, over almost 20 consecutive Tests

    Now that he has been dethroned as opener, I would be stunned if somebody with a record like that gets retained

    Smith should be rewarded for his good performances in India

    Last spot goes to Warner over Usman

    God help us if...."Apart from anointing Rogers, Lehmann said that he was considering a five-man bowling attack for Trent Bridge, which would likely have Brad Haddin and the uncapped James Faulkner batting at Nos. 6 and 7"

    Surely Harris, Pattinson and Siddle play with Lyon and Watson. If they play six seamers I'll throw things. Ridiculous.

    The team was going pretty well with a four man attack ffs. The wheels fell off when they went all funky in India. With Watson in the side bowling a few overs, Faulkner is not needed, surely?

    I'm not sure why the feeling would be horrible if he selected Khawaja ahead of two of your trio.

    - Khawaja scored 100 runs last first class match
    - He is a specialist number 3 which is likely to be the position available
    - Boof has been watching him closely over the past year
    - Smith wasn't in the original party and of course Warner has had no time in the middle.
