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.
Current "Favourite XI" 1. Cook 2. Williamson 3. Sangakarra 4. Clarke* 5. DeVilliers+ 6. Chanderpaul 7. Philander 8.Broad 9.Johnson 10. Harris 11. Herath

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:
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
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.
I legit thought that was a joke, and I laughed. good work old man
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
I've heard rumors of another come back tbf
im on the bails bailplane

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
Proudly supporting the world's no 1 spin bowler Rangana Herath and the mighty Sri Lankans!
I even made a domestic thread
