    They must be expecting the pitch to be a real bunsen. I though Kegga was no chance for a game they just wanted him around the squad ahead of winter

    but their changes kinda make sense, it's not like they have a fourth seam option (well, or fifth) like we do (trott doesn't ****ing count). they probably wanted to play kerrigan but didn't want to go in with two seamers, and woakes is a decent bowler and a more than capable middle to lower order bat

    that's if it's woakes for bairstow and kerrigan for bresnan ftr

    Love Kerrigan but really don't think he's ready for Test match cricket yet and this selection has come from absolutely nowhere. Also feel sorry for Tremmers if Woakes has got the nod instead of him.

    I last saw him in the Shield Final where he handled Hauritz quite comfortably, but facing Swann in a Test match is a different story, so I'm interested in seeing how he goes.

    I've obviously watched him in ODI's too, not that I think they mean that much, the only International match I haven't seen of Forkers was his International debut lol.

    Really not sure about these debuts. Yet it's right Woakes get's a go with the red ball I suppose, as that's where his best bowling comes from, not convinced myself though, that he's an International cricketer.

    Kerrigan doesn't excite me either, would have rather had Monty, despite all the problems.

    Yet we'll see prove me wrong boys.
    Do I contradict myself?

    Does Warne rate Faulkner at all? Not really talked about him.

    During that final he predominately played against seam bowlers. Hauritz in fact only bowled 14 out of close to 100 overs for the innings.

    I will say this about Faulkner - which his First Class bowling record greatly flatters him, he is a slightly better bat than his First Class record indicates.

    Lots has been said about him being a "bowling allrounder" and while that's what he's performed as so far and that's usually been the role Tasmania have used him in, he's always been thought of as someone who had much more potential with the bat than that. I think he's viewed by the CA hierarchy at the moment as someone roughly as good with the bat as the ball. As a youth cricketer he was seen as someone who could bat six and be the fifth bowler in limited overs matches, for example, and Tasmania did try him at five and six early on before his batting failures and jammy bowling saw him slide down the order. Of late he's really started to show some more of that batting ability though, cementing his place ahead of Butterworth, Gulbis and (when selected) Krejza in the Tasmanian batting lineup, finishing the season with a pretty respectable batting average despite playing on some dog wickets early on and then scoring some runs on this tour.

    He's obviously not even near good enough to play as a batsman in this side or even as a batting allrounder but I actually do think his batting ceiling is every bit as high as his bowling ceiling, even though it says as much about how sceptical I am about his bowling as it does about his batting. I wouldn't be that surprised if he scored a 50 here and surprised some people with how neat his technique looked which is partly why I think his selection is actually so dangerous; if he does something like that he could retain his spot for the live matches coming up, which would be disastrous.

    This is interesting, although no indication of whether Woakes is in for Bairstow or they're resting Jimmy.

    said it before, i'll say it again: Warne will throw Quiney's name out there as an option at some point in this test match.

    It is all really strange. Not going a massive problem with it or anything it just odd.
