Test: Siddle, Hilf, Patto
ODI/T20: Starc, Cummins, ??? (given we're playing Watson, Christian, Hogg/Doherty and Maxwell as bowlers too)

Starc Mckay Watson then its a bit up in the air. (Johnson, Hilf, Cummins, 20 overs from part timers ect.)
Don't watch enough t20 to comment on that but iirc Mckay was less than amazing and Cummins has been a bit better in the shorter format.
Now that Lee's gone, Cummins' only competition comes from Hilf, Pattinson, Harris, Siddle and McKay (in terms of capped specialists). Hilf, Pattinson and Siddle aren't very good ODI bowlers in my book. Harris rarely plays ODIs now (despite his gun record) because of his less-than-gun injury record, and McKay is prone to brain explosions and overs full of waist high full tosses.
Starc --> Cummins/Harris --> McKay as the order, IMO. Would like to see Alister McDermott get a crack, however.
The test line up has to be Siddle, Hilf and Pattinson (assuming Harris is injured, otherwise he should be first pick imo). Have a bad feeling though that Hilf won't continue his good form against India, and will end up being a bit of a liability again. If that ends up being the case then the order for me would be Cummins and then Starc.

Harris just ruled himself out of the SA tests, I believe

Can we not do the stupid of picking Test teams on ODI form
you can do it sometimes if you keep things in perspective.
27 wickets @ 34 last year in the Shield.
7 wickets @ 21 in the CC.
If he performs in the first handful of Shield games he plays, coupled with the way he's improved over the last few months and the swing he's getting, I wouldn't be surprised if he gets into the Test XI.
Bowling beautifully, but I agree he needs some FC numbers to back him up first.
Pattinson is one of the first picked in the test team, not even a question.
