Hughes needs more time, plus Cowan should stay for now imo. Unless it's for a really good reason (like Marsh's obvious downfall), we can't just keep dropping players after 5 or 6 matches. It's a bit ridiculous. The fact is Cowan hasn't been great by any means, but he has shown some potential and doesn't deserve to be dropped yet. It sounds as though Hughes hasn't really corrected his old problems, so if he can't handle Chris Martin, then I think he could get pretty owned by a metronome like Philander. If Cowan continues to fail, then I'd think about giving Khawaja another go, or maybe someone like Cosgrove (fat chance of that though). On bowling, it's pretty simple if it's 3 pace bowlers...has to be Siddle, Hilf, Pattinson. If 4 then it's more up in the air. I'd personally go Cummins before Starc, but wouldn't really mind either way if Starc has allegedly improved so much.
