RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012
Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.
the usual bowling attack
don't really like watson at 3 but I can't put Trott there.

Will say this once and then nothing else. Defamation laws quite clear in Aus.be careful.
Anderson put in the best bowling performance of the series, IMO. Same reason why I didn't have to think much about putting Clarke in there.
Agar put in the finest batting performance ****
Think Clarke/KP at #4, perming 2/3 of Broad, Anderson and Siddle for the two seamers who aren't Harris & ditto Cook, Rogers and Root for the two opening spots are the only serious discussion points.

Surely Rogers place isn't up for discussion?
This isn't a "pick some guys who you think have had good series" exercise, it's a "pick the best XI" exercise. None of the openers are really crying out to be picked, but you still have to select two.

I meant pick the best XI of the series. You still have to pick two opening batsman. You can't say Cook's been rubbish, then say Root's been rubbish and you can't pick Warner for one fifty.
Yeah but Root and Rogers have been pretty crappy too

Daniel Brettig: "Siddle is the vital glue for a bowling attack that needs experience and consistency to balance the talent of Hazlewood, Starc, James Pattinson and Pat Cummins. Hopefully Lehmann and company will now remember this"
