    Would prefer a non-bowling Watson at 3, rather than a non-bowling D00lan

    Would prefer D00lan to Baylee

    Faulkner for Bailey and C00lter Nile for Harris if reqd (but I'd still play Bolly ahead of him, 3 leftys and all).

    I think Doolan gets the nod over Bailey. The others are all based on fitness. Bailey's fielding has been sub-par to say the least, his batting style is another version of Watson and Warner. So IMO I'd like Doolan to be thrown in.
    Current Favourite XI 1. Cook 2. Gayle 3. Sangakarra 4. Clarke* 5. Chanderpaul 6. Rahane 7. De Kock+ 8.Johnson 9.Steyn 10. Herath 11. Roach

    I want West Indies to be competitive again

    I'm really not all that fussed at the moment which combination we end up with as I wouldn't mind seeing any of the three guys added to the XI from the last Test. I think George Bailey deserves one more opportunity but I realize that a poor performance at the SCG could mean he misses out on selection to South Africa for the Tests. I know Boof has said that he likes 5 bowlers, but it just might mean that Smith or Warner will have to get through a few more overs.

I get that NCN brings some batting but our tail's been fine so far.
    Think with Johnson doing so well, and bowling a lot of shorter spells, Bollinger (who has rarely bowled more than 5 overs in a spell this season) and Johnson in the same side wouldn't suit them either.

    I think what will happen is that D00lander gets a debut and Forkers comes in for his debut as well. Doolan for Watson, Forkers for Harris.
    I can definitely see this happening. And I don't like it.
    The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

    2 Tasmanians would be an outrage.

    Been out of touch with Australian Domestic for a while now; what's got D00lan in the squad? I see he had a great 12/13 season but has had fairly average returns otherwise. In form go-to player for 3? What's happening with Voges, Cowan, Hughes & Ferguson?

    Doolan has his fans because he has a pretty good technique, as well as recent form.

    Ferguson's just never consistently scored big runs at Shield level. I guess some of the elites don't rate Hughes or Cowan. Voges I can't say, probably pigeoned holed as a OD specialist.

    Really not keen on them playing Borthwick, I know he would play primarily as a batsman but we really don't want another Kerrigan. Monty can play this one.

    I understand the temptation to sack the lot but don't think this is a good situation for anyone to come into the side.

    It's my predicted side rather than what I would do, just to clarify.

    I've no ****ing idea what I would do mind you.

    I am sick of England picking bowlers based on their ability with the ****ing bat.

    Pisses me right off.

    Bresnan, Stokes, Borthwick lets just go back to the 90s.

    Bowlers bowl, batsmen bat. Space for one all rounder in the team MAX.
