    I rate Carey, but his record for the Redbacks hardly warrants these calls for him to play as a specialist bat.

    Ok but who is he up against at six? Maybe Travis if you want to play Harris or Burns in the middle order. Or maybe one of the Marsh’s? How long is S Marsh out for? He’d probably the one Carey would have to beat.

    Patterson, Pucovski, Labuschagne, Wade, M Marsh...all would be a better #6 than Carey

    Dropping Head would be properly harsh. Dropping him for a kid with so little first class experience would be the worst selection call possible.

    The media hype is doing Pucovski no favours at all. This whole "next big thing" talk is really just a millstone around his neck as far as I am concerned

    Have you seen him (WP) bat? He's got the best technique I've seen come thru Shield in years. I can see the sense in not selecting him until our home summer but it's a matter of when rather that if with him. Will be batting at #3 in our test team in 3 years.

    I feel like Head's technique is too flawed for English conditions but if he plays and I'm wrong I wont be disappointed, obviously.

    Yeah I have seen a bit of him, agree that he has the game to succeed at in Tests but the Ashes is the absolute worst place, bar none, to blood somebody at Test level. Post Ashes he will definitely be in the picture but I believe people need to temper their expectations of him in the short term

    Probably reasonable tbh. Home tests against Pakistan would be a much better debut, next summer.
