    The Australian Selectors

    Are the most biased, most useless selectors in the world. How on earth Nathan Hauritz got picked ahead of Cameron White is absolutely beyond me. Oh, wait, I remember why now. Cam White comes from VICTORIA. They wouldn't DARE pick a Victorian other than Warnie would they.

    maybe they think that Hauritz wont go for as many runs, 3/16 isn't too bad a start though

    Explain this to me:

    Season 2003/04
    Bowling
    Cameron White: 35 wickets at 37.80
    Nathan Hauritz: 16 wickets at 63.93
    Batting
    Cameron White: 522 runs at 40.15
    Nathan Hauritz: 196 runs at 28.00

    Now, from those statistics can u tell me which had the better season?

    i think it was more or less judged on how they were bowling in the nets in india, apparently cameron white was shocking.

    Apparently the Indian conditions suited Cam Whites bowling beautifully.

    apparently the selectors and punter who are there think otherwise. White might well have taken a few wickets, but he would have gone for alot more runs per over. in some ways im surprised they bothered with either of them and didn't play 4 quicks and have a few overs from Katich and/or clarke to fill the gaps, but the quicks are bowling so well at the moment we dont really need a spinner.

    I can't disagree with you there, I thought White deserved selection ahead of Hauritz, the only thing I can think of is that he was bowling better on tour. Apparently he has had a lot of coaching on his action, and is getting the ball to flight more, and using his wrist better to get more turn. I didn't see him bowl today, but they said he bowled very well on the radio.

    I don't wanna argue with you, just so you know. But Adam Gilchrist could've spun it on that pitch.

    No surprise Hauritz got special treatment, he's from the selectors 2nd favourite state.

    That would be the logical conclusion, but some people don't like to use logic clearly.

    Going on the performances so far they have got it right.
    Only two states to be in - Queensland and drunk.

    Perhaps the worst thread ever dedicated to Australian cricket in the history of this forum. White is bloody lucky to be in the country - had Warne not been injured, he was on the plane home, so IMO it's pretty clear that Hauritz was ahead in the pecking order...

    Oh, and btw, I think they are both rubbish and shouldn't be in the squad when we have MacGill and Hogg taking wickets in the Pura Cup at home.

    Bring on Stuart MacGill against New Zealand.

    I'm sure many selectors from other countries wouldn't mind being as useless as Australia's since they win all the time.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...
