    Who, Siddle? If Hazelwood is bowling well I'd have him ahead of Siddle fo' sho. Starc only comes in when Pattinson needs a rest imo.

    Head and Khawaja getting runs with Manus and Marsh failing is pretty ideal

    Don't squander the gold of your days making a shrine of cricket videos, trying to improve the hopeless failure, giving your life away to the Blockys, the Devciches and the Weerasundaras! Surrender your devout little cricketing heart to the inured agribusinessman.

    Yeah Siddle.

    I think Patto plays Lords if heís fit. 10 days off is a good rest period. That being so, and assuming Cummins is ok after he got better as the first test went on, it leaves one spot. And I reckon that spot is between Siddle and Haze, because I canít see them playing Patto, Cummins and Starc. Theyíll want someone in that holding role in s four man attack. Haze picking a good time to be taking poles

    Why was Hazelwood dropped? Wouldn't say he dined out v India last summer but he was hardly rubbish. Do they prefer a few more runs from Siddle (which in hindsight was crucial in the 1st Test win)?

    Hazelwood had been average for a little while with injuries not really helping. I'm hoping that him being dropped will give him a bit of a kick up the bum after becoming a little complacent

    Agreed with all of it. Would rather have Haze as the holding bowler too. Looks like Starc served up some total dross in that tour game. Good signs.

    5 Bowlers, with two of them being worth one batsman and one tailender. How would you bowl them? Who opens? I'd start with Starc and Pattinson. I think Cummins is better as first change.
    I can't see it ever happening. We don't need 5 bowlers, we need batsmen. Leaving out a batsman to play a 4th unnecessary seamer? nah

    He wasn't. He got injured and is only just coming back to full strength.

    Not very often the 4 test players all outscore the 3 bats trying to make the team.

    I absolutely believe Haze can play the Siddle type role in this side better than Siddle myself, get him back in. Harsh on Siddle I know but ultimately we have better and quicker options.

    Patto must stay in the XI if fit to do so

    Though I do agree Haze > Siddle I'm not sure I'd be prepared to drop Siddle after that performance. Having him take poles is a good sign though.

    Starc I wouldn't bother with unless we get a Brum-like pitch with England picking Archer and Curran.
