Been a lot of speculation as to who should stay and who should go. So this is my turn.Team,in batting order, should be as follows
Watson....Proven opener at this level,brings experience, and if his Captain only uses him as a "change" bowler ala Mackay/Walters will not have fitness problems.
Warner....You can't dislodge an opener who has batted through his team,remains not out and who scores his maiden Test Century
Kwajah....This young man continues to impress and #3 is his rightful place and will only benefit from playing at this level
Clarke.... He seems to be a better player when he comes in higher in the order
Ponting.... While not going at his best at present I am of the opinion he still has some good innings left in him.His relegation down the order takes alot of pressure off.Remember Border made a similar transition and it did not hurt his career.
Christian....Proven "All rounder" at FC level and I believe unlucky,or lucky depending on how you look at it,not to have made the team for Hobart
Ronchi/Wade.....Hard to split these two as keeper.If selectors are looking for a batsman/stumper then Ronchi is the man.If,on the other hand they want a good keeper who can occasionally score some valuable runs then Wade is the answer.Personally I prefer Wade but then I may be biased.
Pattinson....2 five fors in his first 2 Tests speak volumes of this player.Will only get better and will trouble some very good Indian batsmen on the harder Aussie wicket.
R,Harris....Providing he can keep his fitness this young man will bear the brunt of the Indian batting attack with the other 2 being used as "strike"
Siddle....He is the most experienced of the specialist bowlers I have selected and will do "a job".I must admit if Cummins had been fit the Siddle would have no place in this team.
Lyon....This young man has both the temperament and ability to last along time in this game providing his skipper does not overbowl him. Clarke should remember he himself is a fair finger spinner and Warner is also a "leggie" who has bowled at FC level.
There you have it.It,s now open for discussion but please try and justify whatever changes you would make to make it lively
