    Maybe you are talking about me. I still think Blewett is a better bowler than Watson at the moment atleast in International cricket and he is bowling regularly this season. Watson bowls most of the time when the other side is in big trouble and playing to survive the 50 overs and still he goes at 5 an over. I still don't know why Harvey was dropped when he just beginning to bowl well in International Cricket. My order of allrounders of AUS will be Harvey,Symonds,Blewett and Watson.

    Harvey was the most overrated player, someone to have been described as the best oneday bowler in the game ( by Waugh) was hardly that impressive with the ball, nor was he that good with the bat.Symonds isn't much of a bowler , but he can bat and is a superb fielder.Watson is a the best among them all, his oneday bowling stats might not be great, but he has all the potential to develop into a fine allrounder.

    I agree that he is the most talented of them all. But there are many talented players in the world who have failed. If you go by talent then Laxman should not be dropped at all.

    Watson is good, so what if he gets hit occasionally, BUT HE DOES NOT GO FOR MANY WHEN THE OTHER TEAMS ARE IN TROUBLE


    also, at least he can bat unlike Harvey and Symonds

    AUS doesn't require a big innings from Watson. He is expected to score some quick runs in the last overs which i think Harvey and Symonds do better than him.

    No your wrong we need an allrounder who can actualy bat when the pressure is on like Watson did with his 77* erlyer this year.

    Symmonds and Harvey both never played a good innings once when the team actualy needed it. also Watson is pritty decent Hitter when he decides to go I mean not many batsman can clear the straigh boundry at the Adelade ovel by more than 5 meaters and Watson did it 3 times in a OD match.

    Also If Watson has any talent at all you can trust me he will make the most of it he probably works harder on his game than any other player in the Australian squad thats pritty impresive for a 21 year old.

    That's not entirely true.

    He's only really had 2 innings in ODI when he's bowled tightly.

    3-13 off 7 and a bit overs against Kenya and 10 overs for 26 against Pakistan.

    The rest of his performances have been average or worse, and he currently averages 56.42 against Test playing Nations with the ball, at a run rate of just under 5 per over.

    So far he's done nothing with the ball that makes him stand out as a great talent to me.

    And his State one day figures are worse than his National ones!

    Yeah Neil why did u try and convince everyone he was a certainty????

    But Seriously
    Just look at the bowling figures from last nights game...

    Symonds bowled like a park cricketer and Blewy bowled well...

    Also why has Symonds changed to off spin. He used to pick up a lot of wickets with medium pace.
