    you can hook balls down to fine leg at 1, 5 or 11
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    I think the more important point is keeping Clarke and Hussey where they are, and just happens to mean Quiney (or whoever) will be at 3. They clearly like making runs there, so keep them there. It's one of the few things in our batting order which actually works and we know is dependable, so why change it. In any case Quiney is likely a very short term stop-gap, so we really don't even know how Watson will fare there yet.

    There's a fair chance both will play; Duminy's out afterall. Faf and Tsolekile both playing is pretty unlikely IMO.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    i'd consider stupid bowler out and silly tahir in (such an obvious change it hardly counts as a change), xmas horse out for the keeper and the faf duminy swap. so


    smitteh
    virus
    the great man
    the great man
    ab
    faf
    the keeper

    like i dunno know, at adelaide do you really wanna risk a ****ty keeper? or the ****ty keeper's well known **** back? plus at adl if you do actually get yourself in trouble, you don't want your number 5 batsman to be a 40 and out guy....

    I mean i won't be upset if he doesn't play - Firdose Moonda can suck it - but you know I'd support it if they went that way.

    also would I be right in saying that the argument for the 7 batsmen structure has lost a bit of weight simply because the new #7 won't be a useful spinner? (read: not a leg spinner)

    I really don't buy that

    Look at his injury history - it's always arisen when he is bowling

    Just look at AB Field in his last FC game

    He batted fine in the first innings, then was injured after bowling one over

    He doesn't have a history at all of getting injured while batting

    how do you know he didn't pull it while batting, felt it was ok to keep playing, then when trying to bowl went ahh **** nah

    Which doesn't address that now that he is injured, he cant run properly which was my point.

    From all reports in the newspapers today, apparently he can run properly
