And Cummins has to slow his approach down at the point of delivery to potentially minimise the likelihood of injury. I don't think it's so much his age or lack of experience - he literally charges in to the crease so he's isn't balanced when he releases the ball.
He should look to Lee as an example of a bowler who can bowl 150+ by having a run-up and action that is smooth and repeatable - as well as maintaining pace near enough 15 years.

If Watson and Ponting are out, should just go in with a team of allrounders lol.
Just look at the depth!
Ah, thought Quiney was a middle-order batsman for some reason...

If Watson's out they will play a specialist batsmen like last season. They won't be picking an all rounder unless they are justifying a spot as specialist batsmen or bowler and 2nd skill is bonus.
Did they play Dan Christian last season for the sake of playing an all rounder.
Quiney is probably your best as he can slot into 3 and put pressure on Cowan if it is short term injury.
If Pointing is out they will probably play Quiney as well, but Watson at 4.
If both are out Bailey will come in down the order.
Personally think Cosgrove and Dave Hussey are the players you pick against the SA, rather then mediocre FC cricketers. But that will never happen.
The man, the mountain, the Mathews. The greatest all rounder since Keith Miller. (Y)

Why give Quiney a go when Doolan has made more runs this season, and SA couldnt even dismiss him? its not like Quiney averages 50+ at FC level.
Meanwhile, Smith bowling absolute rubbish.....long hop after full toss, total filth.
I'm not following why either Doolan or Quiney should be in the picture at all. Yeah sure they just both scored well against SA, but if you look at the bigger picture you can't get past the fact these guys average 36 ffs. If it's only meant to be a short term solution, then you have to get someone like Dussey. And if it's meant to be potentially for a longer period, then the usual suspects (Hughes, Khawaja etc.) have to be the first options, surely.
well they're going to name two backups tonight, gonna be interesting
anyone but forrest please invers
it'll be bailey and klinger obv

Will say this once and then nothing else. Defamation laws quite clear in Aus.be careful.
With a new ball being used at either end in test matches now, it's important to have three openers in your side.
