    Cutting has a lot of experience rescuing collapsing teams.

    watson, hughes, clarke, bailey, smith, voges, rad haddin, johnson, starc, mckay, some spinner

    idk i put no real thought into this. if you don't open with watson, obviously an opener comes in for smith (also: someone could just come in at 5 instead of smith), voges could be replaced by maxwell or someone, question marks over keeper and spinner. harris comes in for mckay if harris intends to push for the 2015 WC.
    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

    When do Australia go to SA?

    Guess their one day side may depend on who rests up for that.

    Early February. Advance squad leaves at about the same time as the last of the internationals against England and the end of the BBL, I think.

    Australian squad announced:
    Clarke, Bailey, NCN, Doherty, Faulkner, Finch, Haddin, Johnson, SMarsh, Maxwell, McKay, Pattinson, Warner, Watson.

    Finch picked against quality opposition, essentially in place of Hughes. Also we have no middle order batsmen whatsoever. Get Horsehead in there and rest Clarke's back.

    No place for anyone from the reigning Ryobi Cup champions.

    Kinda shocked to see no Hughes in the squad. Wonder who doesn't rate him? Instinctively, I'd say he doesn't see like Lehmann's sorta guy but it would be **** if he's been dumped because of that, particularly considering who he's been replaced by.

    If I were picking an Australian ODI XI tomorrow, with an eye on the 2015 World Cup, I'd be going with a Clarke-less top 7 of:

    1. Warner
    2. Hughes
    3. Watson
    4. Bailey
    5. Smith
    6. Maxwell (or a promising young batsman we want to blood - Lynn/Burns/Maddinson probably the three uncapped blokes I can think of)
    7. Haddin

    Smith's continued omission is puzzling as well. Gunned the Ryobi Cup, has a game suited pretty well to ODIs (especially as a Clarke replacement: runs hard and rotates the strike, good in the field, bowls well enough to make up overs if a bowler doesn't fire) and has been considered a future leader. Get him in there and VC him under Bailey when Clarke has a rest.

    Maxwell's bowling becomes surplus to requirements if Smith slots in for Clarke, so then his place should be taken by the best young middle order batsman available. Which could well be him anyway.

    Or we can get Hughes to do a Watling and give Haddin a rest from ODIs until the lead-up to the World Cup, with another batsman coming in at 6 and Maxwell as a finisher at 7
