Who should be the unlucky one to miss out in Brisbane. It seems certain selectors want to bring back Symonds, and early betting was on Watto unfairly missing. Now with the weather in Brisbane, the money has moved somewhat for Krejza, with the more unlikely scenario being that one of the three quicks makes way, with Haddin dropping down to 8.
I say Krejza should miss - while there should be some extra bounce for him in Brisbane, and spinners have got results there, it should be more helpful for the quicks, and they're all better bowlers than Jason, his debut notwithstanding. Krejza did enough to merit first go when a specialist spinner is selected, in this case however, I think we're better going with Symonds/Clarke/Katich to bowl spin if necessary. Doubt we'll be in the field for a whole day at any time anyway, so the overrate thing becomes a bit moot.
If it were one of the quicks, I'd guess it would be Clark on the pecking order that was established in India, although dropping him to accomodate a spinner with a FC average of 50, and one test, and an average of 30 would be a baffling decision IMO - on the proviso he's fully fit.
