    If not. I'd go Jaques, Rodgers & Huges in that order.
    If Hussey does move to open, who will take the middle order spot? Between D. Hussey, North and wh o else?

    Not sure. Probably North. Another candidate? Maybe White could come back into calculations, as a batting all-rounder rather than a bowling one.

On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    I'd really doubt White will get a guernsey, unless it's in place of McDonald (going from the last Test). Can't see them going with White and Symonds/Watson/McDonald.

    Jaques if he is fit and scoring runs for Blues, otherwise it has to be Hughes, Rogers is 32 and i really don't think he is a long term option, feel bad for him though as he has been a consistent performer but i think he has missed the bus.

    Shaun Marsh seriously doesn't have the technique to be a test opener, so he should stop trying to convert himself into one, he should rather concentrate of getting into the middle-order of the Aussie test side.

    Why so little vote of confidence for Marsh ? Looking at his performances in recent times, I think he should be the first one in the consideration Q.

    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Warner offering more bowling depth, IMO.

    Warner's leg spin is probably at about the same level as White's...

    :facepalm:

    Why oh why would they move Hussey when he's in the middle of his first serious form slump and they have Jaques, Hughes and Rogers to choose from. If the selectors do that they're even more stupid that the selection of White in India suggests. Who are the middle order batsmen who are making a better case for inclusion at the minute than Hughes and Rogers?

    Klinger arguably. Otherwise, AWTA.
