It will be interesting to see whether the selectors give Pakistani born spinner Fawad Ahmed an opportunity in the upcoming series. He's 31, so it's not like he's a kid they are waiting on to mature like say Agar.
National selector John Inverarity had this to say a couple of weeks ago:
"He would be in contention. We'll see how he goes. He played in some Shield matches [for Victoria] at the end of the last Australian summer, bowled well and took wickets, so we're just keen to see how he goes at international level. He and a number of other spinners will be contention as well."
For mine Lyon has to start ahead of Ahmed as his form in England was a pass mark. But I think Boof might encourage some experimentation at selection, and players like Ahmed and Maddinson could be beneficiaries.
Like the selectors need encouragement for that.

Will say this once and then nothing else. Defamation laws quite clear in Aus.be careful.
Amidst all this talk of Australia having apparently stumbled across a top five that are "locked in" for the second leg, can someone explain what exactly Warner has done to guarantee himself an opening berth? Continues to smack of lack of alternatives to me...
He is in for Brisbane based on his 50 and how long a run he gets if he doesn't make runs is anyone's guess. Might depend if someone in the SS has a hot start and he's struggling. We really need the bats outside the team to start upping there game to put pressure on the incumbents and give form replacements.
