What are the odds of-
It was announced that Katich would play (or was "extremely likely" to play) ahead of Jaques before he was ruled out with injury. I remember the debate about it.
^^ And on that basis, kinda hard to be too bent out of shape about it.
Maybe they should drop Hussey - he's gone anyway - play Haddin at six, Johnson at seven and include both McGain AND Hauritz!

TBH, have no problem with them taking over two spinners, because its the spot about which there is the most conjecture. And lets be honest, they'll play a spinner in each match on the balance of probabilities.
I do think both McGain and Hauritz should tour.
McGain looks the better bowler, but the reality is he's returning from injury, and more's the point, has never played a test. Hauritz at least has been steady. I'd rather they go over with a solid plan "B" rather than see Cameron White take another emergency trip to the airport to roll his arm over for Australia.
Maybe it's time to bring back Di Venuto to open for Australia.

Damn. I am not going to rest properly until this squad is picked. Extremely worries ATM.
Katich even played ahead of Jaques in the practice match in India which shows Katich had already been confirmed to open ahead of Jaques in the test series.
If i am not wrong, Jaques really never had an injury after that eiher, it was just that his back was bothering him for sometime, and that restricted his strokeplay through the off-side, especially his drives through the cover, and he decided to have a surgery to fix his back once he realised he is out of reckoning.
