    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Yeah I said that to my dad a couple of days back when he asked me what his action was like. He had mixed emotions about the news.

    looks like watto's out of the odi... that probably means either smith or mmarsh at 6, and either way leaves the batting looking a tad thin when you consider that hussey used to constantly bail us out/boost us from there.

    It will be a shock if they leave out Smith. He's just... there.

    Would explain why Cummins is able to swing it both ways at his pace not to mention has good control for a quick.

    I would say Mitch Marsh or Smith would be at 7.

    Australia (probable) 1 Shaun Marsh, 2 David Warner, 3 Ricky Ponting, 4 Michael Clarke (capt), 5 Michael Hussey, 6 Mitchell Marsh, 7 Brad Haddin (wk), 8 Mitchell Johnson, 9 Pat Cummins, 10 Xavier Doherty, 11 Doug Bollinger.

    Happy with that team

    I'm honestly not convinced at all that MMarsh > Smith ats. In any discipline.

    Nice to have something to look forward to in our ODI side. Warner, one of Cummins/Pattinson and possible Mitch Marsh.

    AWTA. Probably suits the conditions and the balance of the team a little better though, especially if Haddin bats 6.

    perhaps, but surely the fact that smith is, at this stage, a much better cricketer should be a more important consideration. dunno.
