Australia's test side for the Ashes in Australia
The series in England has given a good indication of where Australia are at. We are very capable of matching England, particularly when we get our batting selections sorted and in the right order. I'd say the following spots are locked...
- Watson (if fit and able to bowl)
- Harris (if he maintains his fitness)
I'd reckon Warner is our best bet to partner Rogers opening. Good contrasting styles.
Could go either way on Haddin, opportunity to try Paine, Hartley or Nevill, but Haddin's been ok.
Khawaja needs to do something significant, but I think he deserves his spot at #3 for a whole series.
If Watson can't play/bowl, not sure whether it'd be better to select a pure batsman or an AR like McDonald or Henriques.
