    Isn't England's ODI side good these days? Ours certainly isn't.
    do you think people will be allowed to make violins?
    who's going to make the violins?

    I hope it's more competitive that the past couple of series between these two down here. They were awful.

    ****s post the squad

    Steve Smith (capt), David Warner, Pat Cummins, Aaron Finch, Josh Hazlewood, Travis Head, Chris Lynn, Mitchell Marsh, Tim Paine, Jhye Richardson, Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis, Andrew Tye, Adam Zampa

    Maxwell's dropping (both on form and team balance) is fine but TPC absolutely didn't need to say anything about how Maxwell trains
    Lynn shouldn't be there either if, presumably, he's still not gonna dive in the field and his throwing is gonna be very limited. it seems a weird selection partiucally when you consider the times he didn't get picked for the OD team
    Pleased Zampa didn't get dropped for Agar or something
    Tye is a good selection. Richardson isn't really.

    Will say this once and then nothing else. Defamation laws quite clear in Aus.be careful.

    Yeah, I don't think this will be one-sided as Oz/England ODIs in Oz usually are.

    Australia's still been very strong in home ODIs recently but I reckon they're a fair way off the team they had at the last World Cup. Strange how Cummins has become a mandatory selection in the ODI side; don't think he's been particularly great in that format as his record shows (both average and economy).

    Yeah, but Australia have barely lost more than 2-3 ODIs at home over the last 4 years or so. They tend to win bilateral ODI series against England home and away. England's ODI bowling still sucks.

    I like the squad overall. I thought Richardson would get selected, both he and Tye did well in the domestic one dayers and both (Tye especially)have done well in the Bash.

    Lynn is the one selection I dont get. Everything about him screams T20 Cricket and he just doesnt seem match fit. Should have been added once the T20s started.

    The main thing going for him is that England's bowling should suit his batting quite well.

    I mean it's also kind of unclear how we should best use him? I guess they'll bat him at 4 or something but I would consider opening and basically use him as a free wicket, just to add as many as possible as quickly as possible before the "real" batting order starts

    I like Maxwell and I'm a bit surprised the Aussie team hasn't found some way to work with him, tbh. He's that lone wolf type, like Pietersen was but until recently with a tighter leash on him when it doesn't come off. Maybe the selectors feel he's not reigning it in when appropriate any more, his out cricket in India wasn't pretty. Who knows how he's responding at training, etc.

    Either way, it's kinda incredible how quickly his stock has fallen. A couple months ago he was the new Test number 6. Now he's totally on the outs and might be struggling to make the T20I side even.

    I think you're probably right that he'll bat four. I think it's faintly possible that they'll bung him in at three like the last time he played, but now that Smith's moved up there I don't see him moving down.

    At least England won't have an accurate finger spinner, especially a leftie. I think he'll find Ali easier to get away than he normally does against spin. And he should be licking his lips at England's pace bowling.

    I'm more worried about him in the field. He doesn't look anywhere near fit enough to field for 50 overs, is barely bending to pick up the ball, barely moving and is underarming it in. He's obviously worried about that shoulder and could be a big liability.

    Lynn will probably be on the bench to start the series and will come into the XI when Smith and Warner are rested.

    He'll definitely play. He'll come in for Handcomb, and MMarsh will play over Stoinis.

    What's the point though? To throw Maxwell under the bus, again? I'm sure that will improve whatever issues they have with him. Do it behind close doors. His recent OD numbers speak for itself.
