    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 if all the switches get stuck on 'destroy'?

    whilst i admit he wont be dropped, the other batsmen bar warner will never play test cricket again.

    What's his record for the U19 team this season? But Aussies are not really known for handing debuts to youngsters.

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

    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
