    The Australian selectors typically haven't been as keen on his as many thought they should've been - I recall a couple of surprise omissions from Australia A teams - but it's been so long since he scored Shield runs that it was an entirely different selection panel back when he was in the frame.

    They'll probably play Dougeh on an Adelaide road as a replacement for someone who's injured themselves on a green Gabba wicket

    Surprised you didn't back that up with a scorecard from 1953 which saw NSW lose a contrived game containing three declarations to prove your point tbh.

    fair call. I ****ed up the other week, but as I said, I'd been in the middle of some night shifts.
    I agree that people tend to 'break down' allegedly when they need to go to Adelaide to play and the selectors throw in a doomed prospect or in this case a possible Dougeh. I guess we'll see.

    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

    Hard to blame Invers for his Mitch love when every other alternative has done his fool back in or something. When you start offering Dougeh as an alternative of the ones left then maybe Invers isn't too far off the mark. Expect Rhino, Sidz and Mitch for test one.

    Yeah seriously, who else can they go with. Pattinson, Cummins, Starc and Bird, that's a lot of casualties.

    I really thought we would have one of Pat/Patto fit for the home ashes. Damn shame. You want to see both sides able to field their best XI.
