    Yeah, it's terrible.

    Will still be a far better boxing day than last year. What a farce that was.

    Yeah, South Africa played New Zealand in a T20. It was particularly annoying because SA's tour of Australia was shortened and moved forward so that they could have the festive period for their own tests. Then they played a T20 game against New Zealand.

    So it not only meant no boxing day test in SA, but it meant the boxing day test in Aus wasn't as good.

    If we hadn't lost Trott I would be fairly confident about winning this series. I still think England will win but will be interesting to see how the England team develops without Trott. He was a damn infuriating player to watch at times but he was damn good at what he did and his effect on the team was definitely +ve.

    Yeah, he was a better ODI player than test player in the last year or two. Will be missed greater in this format.

    Guess they'll probably bump Bell down to three and use Carberry as opener alongside Cook.

    Surely England can take a lot of hope about this on the basis that the team that loses the Ashes always seems to win these?

    Yes! I mentioned this somewhere once we went 2-0 down. It's in the bag.

    I'd take you up on that cept my Avatar is already spoken for.

    Spark is right......this has traditionally been a consolation prise for the losing Ashes team in recent times.

    What are everyone's thoughts on the best possible ODI lineup for Australia as it stands? It's a bit hard to know without much consistency in the ODI lineups over the past few years...

    I'd have thought it was something like this:
    Warner, <Hughes?>, Watson, Clarke, Bailey, <Voges?>, Haddin, Johnson, Harris, McKay, <Doherty?>

    These players appear to be at the forefront of the selectors' ODI minds: Faulkner, Maxwell, Finch, Marsh, Wade

    Players like Lynn, Steve Smith, Cutting, Coulter-Nile, Maddinson are also probably in the mix for getting a run this summer while they rotate the players through the games. My issue with Faulkner and Maxwell is the same as Cutting, all players who can throw the bat but are a question mark as a 4th bowling option because of their economy rates and as a number 6 batsman if/when the top order collapses in the way it was doing last summer.
