    Head a smokey to replace Handscombe, personally. Think the selectors will put a lot of stock in his ton the other day, even if it was against a threadbare QLD.

    Maxwell is the only decent choice from the shield at the moment. He should never have been dropped and now should be picked over Handscomb.

    Burns is another player who is in good touch at the moment but he shouldn't be near the side without being in good touch for longer.

    If Haze hadn't come out this arvo bowling like Haze I'd have been tempted to give Bird a crack in his place but the Haze I saw today was the Haze I remember from the last three summers.

    I could handle Travis Head. Would rather Maxwell of course. But no more Marshes. I know I sound insane but Shaun Marsh looked like he was back to the same old **** in the second innings. Looked hopeless when he got dismissed. Anyway I'm not suggesting we drop Smarsh but he is 34 and like I dunno, I don't expect a second ton from him this series

    They all bowled perfectly this afternoon IMO

    Easy the best time wise IMO, well suppose Adelaide was slightly better.

    Yeah I found the Perth test and d/n Odis the easiest to catch a good chunk of rather than matches which started at 1am or whatever it was. Those were close to impossible unless I ****ed up my whole sleeping schedule

    Marsh has looked the best batsman in the series tbh. Just been so calm and like he belongs. Got to give the selectors credit.

    haha i know. But i will definitely eat my words if he gets a second ton this series. I'm just too used to his moments of greatness being followed by periods of mediocrity. Maybe it'l be different this time, maybe not

    Maybe focus on his batting isn't the worst idea. It will probably be a while before he can take the gloves off Nevill.

    And that has been the story of SMarsh's career. Even those Asian runs he scored he made it look easy when others struggled. Odd career really when you take into account injuries , style when scoring runs and poor dismissals when on his lean trot.

    He was going to try to play as a batsman this year at Parra and recruit or promote a keeper, but CNSW told him hes a keeper-batsman.

    Yeah, should be in unless he loses a lot of form tbh.
