    Wastemen etc

    To play test cricket for Australia, ive never heard of him but his stats look impressive, career average in first class cricket is 44 with the bat, 2010/11 season he is averaging 56 with the bat.

    I think he's the guy that the selectors think has an attitude (and weight) problem.

    Yes I think he;s good enough. Very nice technique, way more settled outside off stump than Hughes. Marsh too is a lot like Usman- uncomplicated technique, and is very sound.

    Reckon he's good enough, won't play until he's fit enough though....

    He is good enough but the reason he isn't playing is the rest of the team want something to eat at lunch.

    Don't think the Australian's can afford to be so picky about weight issues at the moment.

    If he is good enough they should pick him as a batsmen.

    Their selectors won't have picked Inzamam,Ranatunga or Aravinda at the moment if they had the chance? Hell,i think they would have picked Ramesh Powar too by now .

    And is he fatter than Warne,btw?

    Would want him in the team just to see the comedy value of him batting with Watson.

    cosgrove use to play for south australia but lost his contract with them due to discipline problems and weight issues, he even payed a few 1di games for australia, and did ok.

    he pretty much playes like a darren lehman with his ablity to hit the ball and control the tempo of the game.

    its a pitty he is a talented player with a few issues but surly has to be up there for a run i in the australian side, but pitty the slim to stuff all chance for him because he is from NSW

    Australia need to select someone that can get big runs consistently, forget about weight issues they have had a few large blokes in the past like Boon and Hayden,

    I think comparing Cosgrove to Hayden as a 'large bloke' is a bit insulting to Hayden tbh.

    Cosgrove was squeezed into his uniform last night like a stuffed lemon and was nearly run out several times before his eventual dismissal. I'd consider him for tests but we can't afford two poor runners between the wickets in our ODI batting line up.

    Definitely good enough, good fielder too despite weight. Great hands.

    Won't be a guy who gets big tons unless he does it at a run-a-ball, though. Gets out a lot between 50 and 80 too, conversion rate sucks. In the current line-up, that could be a real liability.
