    You may find that they give out fewer this time, just the established test players and give incremental contracts to a batch of others. It will certainly be an interesting announcement, for example what will happen with Hussey?

    Beer and kregja done nothing(kregja awful in india),would give spinners spots to o'keefe,hauritz and doherty.
    Copeland instead of mckay he no good in tests,and too many one day bowlers otherwise.

    Watson Katich Ponting Clarke MHussey Khawaja Smith Haddin White DHussey Johnson Siddle Bollinger Harris Lee Tait Hastings McKay Hauritz Beer Paine Voges Marsh Ferguson Copeland.

    No room for Hilfenhaus. I've picked Beer because I think it would defy logic now demoting him. Krejza and O'Keefe are definitely outside chances of picking up a contract though.

    Copeland gets my final spot ahead of Mitchell Starc. The selectors obviously like Starc, but I think he needs to get back into the NSW team and be bowling well before he should be awarded a contract.

    Hughes cut from the contract list, a simple case of not making enough runs.

    There are rumours katich maybe retired off.
    Will be interested if starc,hazelwood or pattinson get contracts.
    Hardest picks ever.
    Future after the ashes and world cup.
    The team picked for the bangladesh tour may indicate who gets a contract.
    Question will lee get a contract.

    Unless Lee quits, he's very likely to do so. He's still seen as a vital cog in the OD team.
    5-0

    Depends if CA wants to build for the future of the past,lee won't play the next 20/20 cup or the next world cup.
    So whats the point?
    If they sack hussey and katich but keep lee it will make no sense.

    Australian teams never build for a World Cup four years in advance. You pick the best players available and the team will eventually transform into a World Cup side over the four year period.

    Brett Lee should be retained as he is a great leader of the bowling attack. If Starc or Pattinson deserve selection in two years time they will get that chance. Pointless to push players out at this point.

    Yeh but it rumoured simon katich is gone,and why keep lee he will be 36 when the 20/20 world cup is on,and he never has been any good at 20/20 anyway.
    Thats unless he makes himself for tests then all is forgiven.

    I would give o'keefe,doherty and hauritz the spinners contracts,and hand 1 to smith as the allrounder,even tho he has lost confidence under ponting.
