    Brad Hogg ?!?!?

    Why did they pick Brad Hogg to play as the spinner for the WACA ODI?

    He certainly wouldn't be good enough in my books to hold his place as a batsman or a bowler in any ODI team. Maybe the selectors intend on playing the four quicks, or dropping Watson for Hogg?

    Where does that leave MacGill and Hauritz especially?

    Its a decision from left-field that the Channel 9 commentators weren't really in favour of yesterday.

    Hogg is decent, i mean MacGill or Hauritz are better choices but maybe they were thinking about the batting side of things and the gap Warne leaves there.

    What a joke. Hauritz needs all the experience he can get before the World Cup. He should have been picked. He is a fair enough bat to replace Warne. The only thinking I can come up with is the home ground advantage for Hogg and that Hauritz will play in the new year.

    I dont think that would be right, they will play Hogg in the rest of series if he plays well, however if he doesnt i suggest Higgs replace him.

    Hogg was a standout in the Australia 'A' Match against England whilst Hauritz was average against SL...

    So its sounds as if you are implying that the selectors based their selection on one performance.

    I apologze it was not last week

    but i read this from Nov 13 2002

    Hauritz bowled flat and lacked invention in taking just three wickets for Queensland in the Pura Cup match against Victoria this week.

    This was from the theage.com.au

    I don't know why they have picked Brad Hogg either...he's an average Chinaman bowler and an average batsman, and if he was in England which his FC Averages like that he wouldn't be in a County Team let alone the ODI one...30 with the Bat and 40 Odd with the ball...oh yes...that's great :rolleyes: and 33 with the ball in Domestic One Day? I just don't know :rolleyes:
