    Australia name Chappell-Hadlee Trophy squad

    Australian squad:
    Matthew Hayden, Adam Gilchrist, Ricky Ponting (capt), Damien Martyn, Darren Lehmann, Simon Katich, Michael Clarke, Andrew Symonds, Shane Watson, Brad Hogg, Brett Lee, Jason Gillespie, Michael Kasprowicz, Glenn McGrath.

    Interesting to see no Ian Harvey, and Simon Katich in the squad ahead of Michael Hussey who i think is a better OD player then Katich

    The test series is called The Trans-Tasman Trophy

    Seems a bit odd to name the One Day cup after two legends . Should have named the test trophy after them.

    Bevan was not really a possibility, but am unsure whether he is in retirement from internationals or has been forced into retirement.

    Well the last time they played a one-day series was 1999\2000 - and I guess The Trans-Tasman Trophy has become engrained, and since 1999\2000 they wanted another Trophy.
    Makes sense to me.

    Forced into exile, maybe - but not forced into retirement. AFAIK he's certainly not retired from ODIs.

    Another issue is who will be left out. It is a 14 man squad, 3 of them will be left out. Who do you think those players will be?

    They will either go with their strongest possible side and play Gillespie, McGrath, Kasprowicz and Lee, meaning Hogg, Watson and Katich will be left out, then hope they win and the can rest a few.

    Or they will rest in the first match, probably Gillespie & Kasprowicz, meaning Watson & Hogg will play and Katich will join Dizzy & Kaspa on the bench.

On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    well our strongest team is

    gilchrist +
    hayden
    ponting
    martyn
    lehmann
    symonds
    clarke
    hogg
    kasprowicz
    gillespie
    mcgrath

    which means lee, watson and katich miss out, but im sure they will all get a game at some stage, we may decide 4 quicks, with hogg missing out, or symonds or clarke rest for watson, and one of the batsman has a rest for kato to play...

    So it finally looks as if Harvey is gone for good. Good riddance.

    I dispute Hogg playing in the strongest side. Surely 10 overs of spin can be covered by Symonds, Lehmann & Clarke. Symonds alone is better spinner than Hogg.

    Yes, thank God! That guy got a free run for years (ala Brett Lee in the test team). Watson is in amazing form and Lee is a better batsman than Harvey (down the order in one dayers) anyway.
