    Sounds like half of CW.

    But seriously though, that's not what I was laughing at. More the weed and dad's clothing bit. He's married to Lee Furlong ffs.

    I can't remember ever thinking Watson was a quality test cricketer, and even before the first game as an England fan was delighted to see him batting at 6, him and Haddin are clear weak links. If I was going into that first test I'd of played a proper number 6 batsman, as the batting is a major issue, and had Marsh at 7, with Haddin 8, and if a bowling attack of Hazelwood, Starc and Lyon, with Steve Smith and Marsh as back up bowlers isn't enough then Watson was never going to make any difference. I just don't see why hes in the squad, there must be better players than Shane Watson sat on the sidelines in Australia

    Has to be Mitchell Marsh.

    Watson was picked over Marsh for his bowling, but he's only bowling 10-15 overs in a match, so I'm not convinced that his tight line and length merits inclusion over Marsh, who is all-round the much better option. Yeah he bowls a few bad balls, but he also consistently looks more like taking wickets. On top of that, Marsh has a regular sized front pad, not one of those novelty sized ones that Shane Watson seems to wear.

    Not to be 'that guy' and obviously he's not Cricket Australia's best buddy right now, but James Faulkner has a better first class record than Marsh, and has been playing his cricket in England for the last few months...

    I would not be at all surprised if it turned out that Faulkner would have been the one called up rather than Cummins if not for the incident.
