    long term Australian XI

    long term aus XI.

    pretty much all the current batters are clueless against swing, that includes smith.

    All we need is application, patience and basics as we will go up against good teams often.

    we need to think next 3-4 years.

    Warner
    Klinger(like for like with Rogers, need some experience)
    Ferguson
    Cowan (slow, but improved his scoring rate, good defender)
    Khawaja/Burns
    Stoinis
    Wade(best imho, way better bat than neville)
    Starc
    Sandhu
    Hazlewood
    Lyon/O'keefe

    If 'not currently being in the team' is the only criterion for selection, I'd probably pick Burgey.

    What's his record for the U19 team this season? But Aussies are not really known for handing debuts to youngsters.
    "This is a clash of strategy. And of methods, culture and politics. This is a new-era rivalry. Not as ancient as the Ashes, or as passionate as India-Pakistan. Two countries that are so different, yet share rampant egotism, high self-opinion and a belief that being born in their country is superior to other births. This brings together a belligerent bunch of brats, bullies and braggers."- Jarrod Kimber

    So NZers should be supporting England if they want to beat Australia themselves this year.
    It begins

    Ashton takes a step closer to recall, I wish he hadn't been dropped in the first place, but Lyon will have to up his practice hours
