Seems, as per usual, number 6 is a big issue for the team again. Bairstow or Balance aren't good enough to bat their in my opinion.
The Onions and Taylor omissions are weird.
I personally don't understand how Onions can have fallen so far out of favour. They never gave him any games ffs.
Horses-for-courses is fine and all, but Australia is not all the same course, and they have three seven foot horses. One of whom would be a debutant, another who's recovering from injury, and another who's recently been dropped from the starting side. Simply put, they all have bigger question marks over them than the question of whether Onions' skills would be effective in Australian conditions.

That's an absolutely horrible squad.
We know most of the side anyway and I don't really have a problem with Ballance being picked, that number 6 spot is wide open.
Tremlett, Finn and Rankin is certainly overkill, would probably have left Finn at home to be honest.
Looks like England have simply been suckered in by the pace and bounce stereotype of Australian pitches.
One and a half swing bowlers (depending on which Broad turns up) may yet bite them in the behind.
Onions is 6'2 ffs. That's not even short in Sweden.
6'2 is tiny on cricsim
Not being picked for England will do so much more for Onions' reputation than playing for them ever did, that's for sure.
