    This is a distinct possibility. Unless Johnson is breaking fingers of key English players I wouldn't especially want him playing in this match. Bailey, I'm fine with though. If both were in, I would replace them with Faulkner and Sayers from my teams.

    while i expect Warner to be picked, i'm not so sure he's a certainty, his last two OD games probably change that somewhat but i could see him being left out if he doesn't make any shield runs and someone else does i.e Finch

    I think the top 5 are a lock for the Gabba. MJ would be a mistake so we need someone to get a bag of SS wickets to distract the selectors. I hope they go with a specialist at 6 and leave Faulkner out. Still don't think Bailey should get picked on the back of OD runs given his last shield season.

    How about noted test match player Katich.
    I hope so, but probably just in dreamland again

    Even with weight of runs I bet Clarke would block it.

    Well he's obviously not going to have "weight of runs" because he's retired from Sheffield Shield cricket.

    My Australia A side:

    Cowan/Silk
    Hughes
    Maddinson
    Marsh/Doolan
    Bailey *
    Finch
    Wade +
    Cutting/NCN/Sandhu
    Sayers
    Hazlewood
    Holland/Ahmed

    Where multiple are named, early-season Shield form to determine who gets the gig.

    And if Langer cried in his beer he won't reconsider? Would never get picked anyway.

    Think Warne and Johnson will both play in Brisbane, the latter because of all the injuries. The only spot I can't put a confident name to is number six tbh

    Rogers
    Warner
    Watson
    Clarke
    People's Champ
    ?
    Rad
    Johnson
    Harris
    Siddle
    Lyon

    I think six might be Bails Bailey, but it could be anyone who scores a poultice in the Shield games, keeping in mind the ODI players are likely to only have one match before the Gabba owing to scheduling. If they get funky they could bat Haddon at six and Forkers Faulkner at seven, but six bowlers is absurd tbh.

    If Lyon gets shafted again for another spinner to start the series I will throw hands.

    question: Who do we think is the no 2 spinner in Aus? I'm starting to think Jon Holland might be right up there tbh
