    Haven't seen much of Mitch Marsh. While I don't think much (read- anything) of Maxwell as a test player, there's something I like about him in the ODI set up. Bit of Andy Symonds x-factor that we've missed the last few years.

    I'm imagining the pitches are going to favour the quicks more than the spinners so that will probably help Marsh.

    We could always* get rid of Doherty and play both Max and Marsh which would be a very aggressive move batting wise.

    * if Watson can bowl 10

    That's what I would do

    Doherty was useless in England last year and I cant see him being any better this time around

    Warner
    Watson
    Hughes
    Clarke
    Bailey
    Wade +
    Marsh (hell, might bat Marsh higher than Wade)
    Johnson
    Starc
    McKay
    Doherty

    Faulkner replaces Doherty if suited

    also now that warner is back to his old bad self in ODers, he'll pull a ton out of his arse

    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

    I'd argue that if Maxwell has the x-factor, Marsh has it in greater quantities.

    Absolutely gun prospect, if he can get some FC consistency with the bat.

    I think the one thing that might work in Maxwell's favour is the impotency of Doherty on the last trip, and they will be tempted to play him at 7 with four quicks.

    Not what I'd do, but I think they'll definitely see it as an option.

    Unless things have changed a lot, I reckon that England is the easiest place to play bowlers of Doherty's type as there isn't a great deal of pace, irregular bounce or spin in the pitches so he effectively becomes a slow-medium left-armer bowling on a belter

    Furthermore, an X1 such as below has very good batsmen down to 10 (assuming McKay is 11) and numerous bowling options including a spinner

    Warner
    Watson (b)
    Hughes
    Clarke
    Bailey/Voges (b)
    Wade +
    Marsh (b)
    Maxwell (b)
    3 of Johnson/Starc/Faulkner/McKay/NCN (3B)

    Maybe I am still hungover from the thrashing in India but I really don't want to see Doherty on the field again for Australia anytime soon

    Yeah, reckon he's just not suited to those sort of pitches at all. Skiddier things in Australia, where can be difficult to get under, see him go OK, but that little bit less pace in the pitches derives him of his main danger - skidding the ball into the pads for LBW.

    I really rate Doherty as an ODI bowler.

    If Watson's bowling I don't really see the necessity of playing Faulkner as an allrounder, weakens the batting. To everyone saying Maxwell should take the spin duties from Doherty is ridiculous, did you see him bowl in the Oz summer? Shocker. It's a tight competition and we need to play our best team if you want to advance, by best I mean our most experienced, at least in terms of bowlers.

    Warner
    Watson
    Hughes
    Clarke
    Bailey
    Voges/Maxwell
    Wade
    Starc
    Johnson
    McKay
    Doherty

    Probably best to go Maxwell over Voges only because Watto can't bowl 10 and will need someone to split it with (as we don't want to risk anything with Clarke).

    To all the Doherty haters he is on the verge of a take over from Agar so this might be his swansong.
