    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Can't think Marsh or Bailey are a shot. They like Hughes so some runs on SS probably keep him in the squad. The other batsman spot is a lottery. Form in the SS should be the main factor but they could just use it for someone with ODI form.

    Wade will at least be part of the squad. For worse or worser.

    yeah, but I reckon they ought to get Nevill into the national set-up at Wade's expense
    There are two colours in my head

    Can't be that squad. I've heard of all of them.

    I think Boof will slot the best young batsman in at number 5 or 6, and at this stage I think that's Nic Maddinson. Alternatively he might go back to Phil Hughes.

    1.Warner
    2.Rogers
    3.Watson
    4.Clarke
    5.Smith
    6 Maddinson / Hughes
    7.Haddin
    8.Siddle
    9.Lyon
    10.Starc
    11.Harris

    Will have a look at the remaining 5 spots when I get chance.

    It's hard to believe we went over there thinking our bowling was up to it and our batting wasn't and yet we've come away with our top 5 batting positions as locks? If we can find an answer at 6 we look to be in good shape for the return series.

    To be fair, they're only locks for now. Smith only has the one ton, Warner is still hot and cold, Watson is still Watson, and Rogers is still 35.

England will win in Australia again this winter as they are a better side which they have shown this summer. 3-0 doesn't lie girls.

    Yup, it's as much to do with Cowan and Khawaja playing themselves out of contention as it is Rogers and Smith booking themselves in.
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    Absolutely. I recognise that, but the irony remains.
