    Nah. Justin Langer syndrome IMO; willing to bet that the guy will never play limited overs cricket for Australia again. If Hodge won't get picked, Katich doesn't stand a chance.

    Yea, i was saying him batting so well in CL makes Clarke continous selection & rise to the captaincy look even worse.

    On Hodge although his chances of not playing for AUS are veryyyy slim, i would still hold out hope for him if he has good domestic T20 season for victoria.

    Nope, Hodge's international days are over. No matter how much he averages for the rest of his domestic career.
    Inappropriate signature.

    Yep can't see our selectors picking Katich. Hodge is obviously no shot, if he can't get in on the form hes displayed in the past seasons well there isn't much higher he can go.

    Why the hell does Brad Hodge have a Cricket Australia Contract if he is 'no hope'.

    I would think Henriques is a MUST pick in the squad at least, but Hopes nah. The final ? position should be Marsh.

    Have not seen christian so cant comment, but i reckon the WC or upcoming T20 fixtures may be too soon for him if he really is potential talent.

    Well he made some comments in recent months towards the selectors, since the last CA contracts where handed out that may have certainly hindered his chances of being picked ever again.

    But as i said b4 i cant rule him totally especially with Ferguson out & no Symo anymore if he has a soild domestic T20 season for Victoria.

    Well short of international class. One of the more useful domestic cricketers at the very moment, but watching him play you will understand he doesn't have the ability to play at the international level.

    Hopes should be nowhere near an Australian T20 side.

    He's the perfect example of a bowler who can be useful in ODIs but who will get smashed in T20s.

    Yeah he definitely would, not only for this format but also the OD format, he should have been the second spinner ahead of Holland for the Indian tour.
    1.Brad Hodge
    2.Shane Watson
    3.Brad Haddin
    4.Cameron White
    5.David Hussey
    6.Mike Hussey
    7.Moises Henriques

    10.Nathan Hauritz
    11.Dirk Nannes
    12.David Warner
    13.Xavier Doherty
    14.Nathan Bracken
    15. Adam Voges/ Travis Birt

    This is the best possible squad that one can pick on current form and circumstances, but a lot can change of the basis of how some blokes perform, during the big bash and the T20 games leading into the WC.
