    I have 9 players locked in which means there are 16 from the initial 25 man squad battling it out for 2 spots.

    My locks:
    Warner Harris Smith Head Paine Cummins Starc Lyon plus Khawaja if fit.

    If Usman isnt fit, I think Patterson is very likely which probably shows he is a favourite for the last batting spot regardless, but not 100% certain.

    The last bowling spot appears to be out of Hazlewood, Pattinson or perhaps the bjg hearted Siddle or Bird.

    I have seen a few teams not want Starc or Harris or Head, I think theyve all done enough.

    Warner
    Harris
    Khawaja
    Smith
    Patterson
    Wade
    Paine
    Pattinson
    Cummins
    Lyon
    Hazlewood/Starc

    Only issue is there's a lot of lefties but that might suit us against the pom quicks who bowl a lot of outswing

    Foakes is batting 3 (ahead of Bracey who bats 3 for glos) in this lions game which suggests the selectors are at least considering him as an option at 3 in test side. Don't think he's good enough tbh, but you could say that of everyone they are liekly to try.

    Not got many runs has he this season.

    Denly has scored a lot of runs over the last couple of weeks. Always assumed he was one of those gets picked at the end of a bad winter never to be seen again players but maybe they will actually stick with him.

    There are reports emerging that Siddle is being considered as Pattinsons replacement for the second Test of a back to back. Pattinsons body cannot withstand 5 Tests but they want him there on the first day.

    The whole Australia v Australia A "trial" smacks of more over-thinking by Langer

    The same over-thinking that lead to Hazlewood and Wade not playing in the World Cup and, in Wade's case, the Semi Final in particular

    JL will desperately want to pick Bangers, for a redemption story (despite averaging 30.92 in Tests, and 40.21 in FC cricket)

    How exactly would Wade have played the Final? You got totally and utterly thrashed in the semi final.
