Well there you go. The selectors bit the bullet and dropped him.
My take? I think it's grossly unfair considering his form in the Test series wasn't THAT bad. Other than the hundred, Steve Waugh's form was much worse. Plus I don't like the idea of changing a winning combination, especially a change of the magnitude of dropping a senior player.
As I've said on numerous occasions, I think Damien Martyn will now move up to number 4 and they'll slot Lehmann in at 6. With a change like this, it wouldn't surprise me if they then drop Brett Lee for Bichel, if Jason Gillespie doesn't play.
