    As has been said, Symonds bats at number five. And why wouldn't Marsh get a go opening the batting? He was picked in the squad. There's a vacancy for the position with no other really suitable candiates. Would be silly not to pick him IMO. Quite a lot of uneducated posts cropping up.

    Hayden
    Marsh
    Ponting
    Clarke
    Symonds
    Hussey
    Haddin

    should be the order, no question. IMO, Clarke to open the batting with Watson slotting in at four when Hayden departs, but a lot can happen in that time.

    Get the feeling that Jakester thought that you had meant that Martyn is still in the race for that spot....

    Has Clarke opened for NSW for an extended period of time? I know he's had the odd crack at ODI level, with limited success, but I'd far prefer to see him at #4 with Watson opening.

    Also, with regards to Marsh, he had a superb IPL and should definitely be in contention for an openers spot, but is he ready for ODI cricket? I'm not sure how he went in the FR Cup last season, but maybe his chance will come when Hayden retires and he's got a few more runs under his belt.

    I would suggest the opening spot would be a tussle between Watto and Hopes with Marsh brought in to experiment later in the series if needed. No way will Marsh get a start, as well as he played in India.
    Who do you suggest will open at the start of the series if Marsh dosent....

    Given that Haydens out and Clarke hasnt been too good opening in ODI's lately (altthough he did it very well early in his career)...

    It's almost certain that Marsh and Hopes will be the openers, unless Australia want to give Michael Clarke another go and to also add some experience at the top of the order. However, I had thought they had given up on Clarke opening as it hasn't come off and he hasn't looked suited to the role.

    Pretty reasonably without being outstanding.

    If I was an Australian fan, this is the team I'd want in a do-or-die ODI:

    Hayden
    Watson
    Ponting
    Clarke
    Symonds
    Hussey
    Haddin

    Hopes is stiff, but I reckon Watson is better, and Marsh's time will come once Hayden goes (or when he's out injured).

    You can argue though that Marsh is so clearly in form, that they should capitalise now.

    Is Hayden in or out of the ODIs currently? If he's out, it'd seem pretty straightforward case of Marsh replaces him, Hopes opens in place of Watson, then the middle-order of Ponting-Clarke-Symonds-Hussey stays the same.

    Haydos the gun, can retire from ODIs, a side like this would be great, especially for Watto.

    1 Marsh
    2 Clarke
    3 Ponting
    4 Watson
    5 Symonds
    6 Haddin [switch with hussey if you like]
    7 Hussey
    Marsh
    Watson
    Ponting
    Clarke
    Symonds
    Hussey
    Haddin
    Or something.
