    Maxwell pretty handy on Australian wickets. Also I dont know if you know this but Finch's shield average is 15.............Thats Poor.

    was having a laugh about Finch, he barely deserves to be selected for his state.

    Even if Maxwell is handy on Aussie wickets, he has given me no indication that he is a long form cricketer and there would never be need for a spin bowling all-rounder in Australia with Smitteh and Lyon in the side.
    There are two colours in my head

    Yeah look not a huge fan of Maxwell but was trying to come up with a 17 man squad and we needed another Bat. Me personally I would like Shaun Marsh in the squad.

    I see Shaun Marsh as a one day specialist just as I see Finch as a one day specialist, and their records support that theory. Marsh maybe, just maybe, could develop into a test player. Finch for mine will always be a short form of the game player.

    Only if Marsh shows he has re-discovered his long form game through good SS form will I accept that he should come back into contention, he does have the potential to be a long form player though, made a test century (on a road mind you).

    Doolan scored 80 and 100 in warm ups against Victoria,seems he is in form.

    Because, since the 2009 Ashes, the only Australians to have scored more centuries than him are Clarke and the retired.

    Good on him. Early season form will be very valuable come selection time and Boof likes nothing more in cricket than blokes scoring 100s and more 100s.

    To be honest, after getting mauled by Bhajji and Ashwin I'd be very reluctant to throw him to Swann.

    Personally I think Hughes needs a full season's grace on home pitches at a designated position (ideally 6). He hasn't had one sine 2009-10 and we've invested too much in him to brush him off now.

    Hughes should bat 3 or 4 in the SS and then come into the test side at 6 IMO, all batsmen in the test side should be in the top four for their state

    Who are you talking about here, Marsh or Hughes? Cause Marsh didn't last long enough to get mauled by the spinners
    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
