    the current Australian squad gets sacked, who would you replace them with?

    for curiosities sake, imagine the current squad all get fired for forgetting to do their homework or something and your asked to make up a replacement squad of 15 players.
    Who would you select?

    Replace Silk with Voges or Bailey and Ferguson with Burns and the above would probably be my choice. Doolan would swap batting positions with whoever replaces Silk.

    The team would probably perform worse than the current Australia side though IMO.

    I would replace them with:

    1 Mark COSGROVE
    2 Nic MADDINSON
    3 Alex DOOLAN
    4 Simon KATICH (c)
    5 George BAILEY (vc)
    6 Moises HENRIQUES
    7 Tim PAINE
    8 Mitchell JOHNSON
    9 Nathan COULTER-NILE
    10 Patrick CUMMINS
    11 Fawad AHMED

    12 Josh HAZELWOOD
    13 Joe BURNS
    14 Ben HILFENHAUS
    15 Adam VOGES

    SA pair Sayers and Ferguson are a bit unlucky along with Hartley and maybe SMarsh.

    Katich WOULD come back I think.

    Yes that is 16 players, but that's the size of the current squad anyway.
    5-0

    if you're picking katich you may as well pick ponting and hussey. and then you're batting is better than the first xi too.

    They're retired, Katich isn't.

    I could see Ponting coming back if he was asked, but Hussey wouldn't.

    A bunch of blind one armed epileptics would probably show more guts than the current lot.

    Sorry, I used to play cricket with a one eyed epileptic, he was a good bowler but once or twice a season he would forget to take his medication and collapse on the field. We'd just put him in recovery position and carry on with the game, though the best one was when his wife did the teas, she just came out shouting at him for not taking his meds and was kicking him as he lay on floor.
