    I think Faulkner's batting is underrated a fair bit but in saying that in this circumstance I don't want him in the team for the First test. I'm definitely in the 6 batsman, keeper, 3 quicks and spinner camp.

    He'd only be in my team if Watto's not fit. Though he's about on par with Cutsy overall.
    Cutting adds more with the ball less with the bat, and has been holding some great catches lately in the field.

    If we pick MJ and Watson isn't fit I'd be tempted to go with Forkers, his case would also be slightly strengthened if Lyon was picked to bowl into his footmarks (ftw).

    And as Social is always saying, if we pick MJ we probably need extra options with the ball in case he is on a match-losing rampage

    thats the thing, johnson on his day is one of the best bowlers you will see. but if someone happens to mention his shoelace is untied, he goes to water and you'd be better off playing with 10 men. just one of those ****s. fourkers, otoh, is one of those ****s who has no ability at all, you'd not pick him as a bat, bowler or fielder, yet give him a big moment, and does he grab it and run with it or what. avg of 68 with the bat and 22 with the ball in shield finals. in the absence of talent, give me fight.

    Just on Cutting, surely worth a punt as an ODI international soon.

    IIRC he's pretty dire at ODD, so no even if he is a gun lower-order hitter.

    Hughes hasn't made anything significant for while has he? Just if he's not currently in the test side (which I don't think he is) and he's not currently in the A side, he shouldn't be picked?
