    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    There is one massive hole in the team and it's either at 3 or 5 depending on where you bat Williamson, so who do they bring in as cover? Nicol and Ellis. WTF. Nicol isn't the worst bloke to be putting at 3 and probably the best option in the country for the position until Flynn proves himself again. But will he be good enough to push Williamson to 5? No.

    Ellis at 5? Talk about nose bleeds, he'd bat 7 if he played so what's the point. Brownlie or Ryder would obviously be the first choice guys for that 5 spot but as they are out I'd have half a dozen guys in there ahead of Ellis and Nicol. Also surprising to see Kruger not getting a call up considering there were some questions about Watling's fitness. Krugs probably deserving a call up on batting merit alone.

    Long story short. Where is Franklin????
    Good post - apart from Franklin who else would you pick ahead of Nicol.

    Not too sure what people think of the guys who taunted Ryder and Bracewell but reading some of the comments from people on news sites I'm surprised no one has yet to give the cafe owners some **** on their facebook page.

    As if it wasn't important enough already that we bowl first, we could easily lose overs in this match and that makes it quadrupally important.

    CDG for Ryder made up for somewhat by having NcCullum back but still, we are relying on being 162/2 again and this time not stuffing it up.

    Long story short - we will get rolled.

    There doesn't seem to be any demons in the pitch- but we are making hard work of this inning.

    Nicol and McCullum too afraid to take any risks because if they get out we'll collapse.
