Will say this once and then nothing else. Defamation laws quite clear in Aus.be careful.
People are weird, all our seamers break down and people are all like 'Manage them properly ffs!' then when management decide to take a cautious approach and not run them into the ground it's all like 'they need to bowl more!!!'.

yeah but even if injury strikes Cummins isn't the 5th best ODI bowler in the country is he? He might not even be the 5th best ODI in the state. Now I'm not all against it - means we won't be forced to play Cummins for awhile yet - but I just don't understand why we're bothering. I'm just sick of rewarding these hot young players with squad places after a couple good matches. Remember when we did that to Moises? And look how that's helped him...
Personally my bigger problem is Warner. I mean that ton in the A tour final was probably his first good OD knock since those two tons against Tassie years ago!

we made them wait a couple of seasons at least!
'least we didn't pick harris.
Just on Cummins, who is to say that he would make the NSW Shield team? Copeland plus Starc, Clark and Hazlewood could all potentially be playing, I don't have a problem at all with him playing T20, but the ODI selection is a little left-field, same with Dave Warner.
It's pretty hard for the selectors to balance who stays at home for Shield or who goes on overseas tours, perhaps the selectors want Ferguson scoring runs for SACA, because I would have picked him and not Warner for the ODIs.
Happy for Bollinger too.
Cummins has played 12 games for NSW, most of them T20s, he's taken 21 wickets.
Completely agree with Benchy, it's different for bowlers. Young quick with potential who's a strong chance to play for Australia in the future, getting him in the set-up early is unlikely to be anything other than beneficial. Jason Gillespie went to a World Cup and was never in with a chance of playing. Was just as much a left-field selection but it only helped him.

Surely better keepers than Haddin around in ANY form of the game. Waste of space as a keeper.Would be lucky to rank him in the top 100 of all time.

Stick to pre 1960's imo.
we don't pick keepers on keeping anymore
in any case he had a really good tour of SL on that front. In the tests anyway. Only one drop iirc, when he was standing up to copeland with a tailender in
So looks like de Villiers will at least miss the limited overs matches. SA captains don't have much luck with their hands.
So looks like de Villiers has already got the curse of South African captains and broken fingers. Graeme Smith had the most fragile fingers ever and lets hope de Villiers hasn't got the same problem.
