Cummins: Dead, as per usual
Pattinson: Dead, may be resurrected for the latter half of the series
Bird: Alive, back to bowling in the nets, not match fit.
Bollinger: Maybe injured, maybe not
Hazlewood: See Cummins
Sayers: 100% fit, firing and ready to go if Invers picks up the phone.
can do sandhu and dermo abbott also alive

Will say this once and then nothing else. Defamation laws quite clear in Aus.be careful.
pretty sure pattinson has been bowling in the nets as well
Yeah, Bird and Patto back in the nets, Bird a possibility for Adelaide and Pattinson targeting a Perth comeback
Bird get a SS match in I hope if he wants a game in Adelaide. Not because he doesn't deserve it, but because it's Adelaide and I want him firing for a place like that.
My Current XI 1.Cook 2.Murali 3.Sangakkara 4.Smith 5.DeVilliers* 6.Faulkner 7.Watling+ 8.Johnson 9.Roach 10.Steyn 11.Herath
Lyon 39 tests email@example.com Hauritz 17 tests 63w@35
I hope he doesn't play in Adelaide, but I guess at least he'll be around if Johnson goes for 0/120 or something, hopefully both Patto and Bird will be firing for Perth putting healthy pressure on the others with an SS game up their sleeves
So MJ probably gets 2 tests then unless he, and probably the team, crash hard 1st up. I want us to win but doing so will book MJs ticket till Perth. Plus the odds of him getting dropped for his "best" venue is slim. I'm going to bet a win at the Gabba and MJ figures of 0/250 don't get him benched because they buy into the scary MJ bull****.
To be honest. I'll be supporting the possibility of an Australian victory over the failures of Johnson. Regardless of whether he books a ticket, we need a win and if Johnson, by some miracle, plays a pivotal role in that happening so be it.
"He's [Michael Clarke] on Twitter saying sorry for not walking? Mate if he did that in our side there'd be hell to play. AB would chuck his Twitter box off the balcony or whatever it is. Sorry for not walking? Jesus Christ man."RIP CraigosKnowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is knowing not to put it into a fruit salad
I agree with most though. His recall makes me furious and is something that I had thought was put to bed for good. But we're more likely to fail on the back of repeat batting collapses than a couple wayward spells (Presuming he doesn't have match figures of 3-350 or something)
What's the status on Magoffin, why isn't he in the frame?
Given our injuries its understandable picking Johnson. At least selection will hopefully settle his future one or the other.
