    IMO it would be better to replace Martyn with say Jaques or Cosgrove. Two specialist batsmen rather than one decent batsmen who can bowl.
    Haha, nothing with the bat? Series vs the World XI?

    its debatable if he would make the ideal #4 but that where he bats for Queensland & most of the time last season for the victorious Hampshire & has made runs so thats sufficeint enough to prove that he can make runs againts the new ball. For Australia he bats at #7 & 8 cleary out of position since he is not your Flintoff, Afridi, Razzaq, Pollock type all-rounder who can smoke it in the late overs thus one could not expect him to display the best of his batting abilities. If he bats in the top 5 at least i would expect him to do well

    yea Watson would make a good 4th seamer since, on occassion we see the team dropping Hogg for another fast bowler. If Watson plays that won't be necessary at all since the bowling will have much variety.

    Hussey is a better no. 4 than Watson. He's also a better no. 6 than Watson.

    Watson will end up playing a similar role to Katich - he's too mechanical to really fly off the mark and get going straight away. He might catch up to run a ball if he plays a long innings, but if he gets out for 10-40, then it will be a pretty ordinary strike rate.

    Regardless, he played an excellent innings and that is just one example.

    Australia were in trouble at 5/148, he and Hussey came back strongly. Four wickets and a run-out isn`t too bad either.

    That for me would be reason enough to consider ending one or two international careers if it were true.
