    I agree, Bailey looks to have it up top which is probably more than half the battle for international cricket. I'd pick him ahead of Hughes anyway.

    Benchy - It depends on how the selectors go. I would pick Doolan but I guess it depends if they feel others would benefit more from an A game than players like Khawaja, Hughes, Johnson.

    Flibberty - Yeah I agree completely.

    Correct and until either decides to make a habit of scoring Shield runs should not be close to consideration. Khawaja as bad as he's been going is still going better than these guys and Hughes' shield record smacks em all and is delivering in the ODI's. I'd have Wade batting top 6 before White or Bailey.

    ftr Bailey averaged 58 in the 11/12 shield season, he then debuted in the ODI team not long after that so if you exclude his last shield season which was rubbish, he's been scoring runs across a few formats for a while now

    And tbf to his last season, IIRC he played on some truly awful pitches.

    His OD form shows he has the temperament for the level, but is his technique good?

    and the season before he averaged 30. Consistent ordinary with rare flashes of decent.

    GEM have confirmed they are showing the Australia A match Nov 6-9 and the Test team is being announced on Nov 12. So a big showing in that match could be crucial.

    Who are the selectors likely to pick for A game? I'm thinking our top 6 will comprise of Hughes, Finch (lol), Khawaja, Marsh, Maddinson and Bailey. Our pace attack will include Johnson, Coulter-Nile and Hazlewood and our spinner will be either Holland or Fawad. That isn't my team, it is just what I think we will see.

    EDIT - Wade will be the 'keeper'
    Reckon it's an easy team to pick

    Simply choose the guys that have been mentioned in dispatches but shouldn't be anywhere near the test team

    Klinger
    Finch
    Khawaja
    Marsh
    Bailey (c)
    Hughes
    Wade (wk)
    Coulter-Nile
    Hilf
    McKay
    Ahmed

    Set 'em up to fail and **** them off out of contention before the series starts

    'A' team? Well it depends a little on early SS form but...

    Klinger
    Maddinson
    Khawaja
    Hughes
    Bailey
    Doolan
    Nevill (wk)
    Forkers
    Cutting
    Chaddddddd
    Ahmed
    There are two colours in my head

    Maddinson
    Finch
    Doolan
    Hughes
    Bailey c
    Henriques
    Wade +
    Agar
    Hilfy
    Haze
    The Chad

    Silk could be subbed in for one of the openers depending on his form. Hughes could potentially take any position in the team depending on how other batsmen have gone in the shield (and depending on where they bat in the shield E.G. Maddinson will potentially be playing at 3-4 in the SS due to NSW's other options). Hilfy will probably be replaced with a younger bowler (thinking Sandu, McDermott etc). A teams have pretty much always had at least some sort of all rounder in recent times and Henriques will probably be doing just enough without being great to take that spot. Spinner is probably the hardest slot to pick since none of the options (excluding O'Keefe, Hauritz since they're blacklisted) have significant careers/stats behind them but if he's done semi OK in the lead up Agar will likely get the gig IMO (even if it's only so that Beer or Turner can trade for some game time elsewhere for WA).

    He's gotta be knocking on the door. Also he's not a toss head.

    With team unity being an all-important thing these days, that's probably going to work against him.
