    Interesting idea but it's not just the balls. You can't make it cloudy
    Did the Poms want to use the Kookaburras back home after their last tour here ?

    Have always said the Dukes should be used in all Test Matches. The Windies have started using it which is good even if its a cheaper version that what's used in England (different lacquer)

    Kookaburra seem to think it would put them out of business tho which means I can't see it happening in Aus.

    ^Aside from Khawaja that looks a pretty solid line up already. Surely Starc is a shoe in still?

    so did the team they were putting out in england though... Judging the Australian batting line-up on paper is the issue.

    Starc and Johnson should never be in the same team imo. starc shouldn't be playing tests at all, really.

    So your best bowler on this tour shouldn't be playing tests but a bloke who looks miles off the required standard (Hazlewood) should?

    Hazelwood has taken 16 wickets in 4 tests...

    He hasn't been as good as some of us expected tbf. Hasn't been tight and has been letting the pressure off with 4 balls. I think the main reason has been just not bowling normally. His best bet is to settle into accurate top of off stump spells but the small totals and conditions have him looking for wicket balls. Has been poor with his line to the lefties also. Seems to have been on Cooks pads a bit.

    You have to learn to bowl in English conditions and that's true for him. Decent return given his bowling imo.

    Yeah, and his worst performances have been on the two pitches we've needed his skills the most (Edgbaston and TB); hitting the seam and extracting movement, something you can't rely on Johnson and Starc to do.

    If he just ran in all day and bowled the channel getting nibble on a length that would be perfect. It's what McGrath was brilliant at. It shouldn't be surprising that it's harder than it looks. Having the potential to be like McGrath and doing it consistently under pressure is a huge gap. I think he's good enough to close that gap.

    So? He has bowled well once and Starc has looked miles better.
