Nah, they're suggesting dropping Xavier because:
- He'd be trash on English pitches because they don't skid like Aussie ones
- They reckon playing 4 quality seamers > 3 seamers and a paceman
- Maxwell can bowl a few overs of gash offies, be equally ineffective with the ball and let the pacemen do the bulk of the work, plus bats & fields better than X.
Anywhere but England, Doherty is far and away our best ODI spinner. Tests are a completely different prospect.
