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.
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.

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.

In the test team? 6 is too low in the SS.
