    Australian Batting Line-Up

    In the limited overs leg of the home summer there were alot of good performances and it will be hard to decide on a top six for the champions trophy out of:

    David Warner
    Shane Watson
    Philip Hughes
    Shaun Marsh
    George Bailey
    Michael Clarke
    Adam Voges
    Glenn Maxwell
    Steve Smith
    Moises Henriques
    ________________________
    Personally I would go:

    David Warner
    Shane Watson (fifth bowler)
    Philip Hughes
    Michael Clarke
    Adam Voges
    George Bailey
    Matthew Wade

    If Watson is not bowling (or playing) then I guess one of the other allrounders will need to be slotted in (Henriques, Maxwell, Smith)

    Very amusing.

    I would include Mitch Marsh too tbh. Clarke is out of this, isn't he?

    With that in mind my batting lineup includes:
    1 Watson 2 Warner 3 Hughes 4 Bailey 5 Voges 6 Wade 7 MMarsh 8 Faulkner 9 Starc + 2 others.

    Edit: McKay very likely and the last spot could be a hack like Doherty or perhaps a young quick like Hazlewood or Pattinson (yes I know he's better at long form Cricket).

    Isn't the CC in June or something? Clarke's out for up to 10 weeks, so should probably be fit for at least some of the tournament.

    I have a feeling Starc may be out though? Which would be a massive loss as he's the best one day fast bowler in the world.

    Is Shane Watson Australia's ODI vice captain or is it Bailey. Surely they wouldn't pick Watson over Bailey as captain if Clarke isn't fit.

    EDIT: Also do you think they would put Mitch Marsh straight into the side? I have a feeling they might wait until the home summer.

    Warner
    Watson
    Hughes
    (clarke?)
    Bailey
    (voges?)
    Wade
    MJ
    Starc
    McKay
    Doherty

    however expecting 10 overs out of Watson is risky, so remove Voges for Mitch Marsh and there
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Warner
    Watson
    Hughes
    Clarke
    Bailey
    Smith

    maybe mix it up and put Clarke at 3 for a bit of left-hand right-hand combo **** just to confuse ****s like dernbach

    Just quietly, Watson seemed to get his troops quite gee'd up in that last game. I don't agree with sledging for no reason (that too mouthing obscene words than taking decently funny barbs at the opposition) but he did seem to rally his guys together and push them for a big effort, which is one thing you do want in a captaincy candidate.
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    i know enough to know that there's no real big story here. they just cbf releasing the 30 man squad and facing the inevitable 'why is (player with no hope of being in the 15 man squad) in there but not (another player with no hope bring in the 15 man squad)???' crap. they've got their 20 or so players in contention (hell, they've probably got the 15 man squad all but picked).

    also it'd be amazing if Finch's bowling gets him the reserve batting spot.
