    Selectors will consider switching him for Starc on an Adelaide track on which he could take advantage of the rough produced by a busy spinner, Nathan Lyon.
    itstl. starceh to bowl some chinaman?
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    What's also interesting, how is Lyon going to produce the rough? Is "busy" meant to mean something?

    Around the wicket can be pretty effective with the older ball if you can get a bit of off-cut going, which is a pretty natural variation for an inswing bowler like Starc.

    Having said that, the rationale for most here advocating for him seems to be
    "I'm not saying he should be picked based on his ODI form, but we should definitely pick him based on his ODI form."

    This is a great umpires' truism, though oddly enough it's never stopped the ****s firing me, a leftie, when a right armer goes around the wicket.

    That's because they're arseholes.

    So Quiney is a better bat than Watson?

    WTF?

    That's crazy!

    I thought Watson was injured and that is why he wasn't selected?

    He was for the 1st Test mate.

    However, they are saying that, to get back into the team, he must bowl.

    Implying that he's not in the best six batsmen in the country

    I would back him over Warner and Quiney in the top three any day

    I have never seen Quiney, but I'd have him over Warner.

    Sourcing Dorries now? Have we really fallen that far?

    Absolutely none of what Dorries says matches up with what anyone else has said about Watson. He won't play as a bat only, not because his batting isn't good enough but because if he's not fit to bowl, he's probably not fit enough to bat either. He injured his calf, that stuff usually stops people from doing stuff sorta integral to batting. Usual rubbish from Dorries.

    That makes more sense.

    Yep. If Watson isn't fit to bowl then he's not fit overall, and while he may be able to bat he'd risk injuring it to a worse degree if he played. If a fit Watson decided to give up bowling he'd still be picked I imagine but they don't want to risk the whole package long-term for the possibility of half of it at half capacity right now.
