    I really feel sorry for Jaques. He was good for so long when Hayden/Langer were incumbents, when Langer retired he had a very good start to tests, he gets injured and loses his place, and now he's even lost his contract.

    Well there you go, Manou's going to England. Have been saying it for ages but this surely confirms it.

    Good. Glad the selectors weren't fooled by Wade and Hartley's late-season batting form.

    Looks that way, definitely. It's quite good for him to have a contract on top of that though, isn't it?

    Yeah I must say, I didn't really expect this. I do think he's the best candidate for a one-off game if Haddin goes down, but I thought they'd be looking to groom a younger player like Wade or Paine given Haddin's age.

    I'm not criticising the decision as such but it has come as a surprise to me TBH.

    Jaques losing his contract is a disgrace.

    Yeah, agreed (although he didn't actually lose his place to injury; he was dropped for Katich before it was confirmed he was out injured).

    I'd have definitely preferred him getting a contract to Marsh, David Hussey or even Ferguson.

    Interesting that they gave Hodge a contract as well when they don't show much intention of playing him ever again.

    Haha, I actually didn't even notice Hodge's name.

    Yeah, thought that was a little strange. Agree re: Jaques though, shocker.

    Well yeah, he was dropped, but he had been suffering with the injury before he was dropped, so I wonder if it had any bearing on it. And it was about the unlukiest dropping ever.

    I didn't even notice he was there. Wow, quite surprising.

    Especially when Warner didn't get one, he'll certainly be playing heaps of Twenty20 matches throughout the year and isn't too far off the one-day side.

    Perhaps Hodge is closer to being in the Test team than we realise, and has only been blacklisted from limited overs cricket.
