    Agreed, seeing as they are the best side in the world facing a team that look like they have some problems at present it looks even better.

    I think people just want him to remain at 5 where he has done so well. I can't say I disagree with them.

    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.

    I agree, but I'm looking at it from a Cricket Australia viewpoint. Yes, every man and his dog knows how well he's done at 5 - but Quiney or whoever won't bat before him. Maybe if Watson's fit he'll be 3.

    If Watson and Ponting are out, should just go in with a team of allrounders lol.

    Warner
    Cowan
    Dussey
    Hussey
    Clarke
    Wade
    Smith
    Maxwell
    McDonald
    Henriques
    Butterworth

    Just look at the depth!

    Reckon it would be a terrible move making Clarke bat ahead of Quiney personally. Quiney is an opening bat and recently both Cowan and Khawaja have debuted in front of Clarke so it has been done in the past.

    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.

    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.

    Because Quiney has performed at a decent level for 3 seasons, not just half a season.

    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.

    With a new ball being used at either end in test matches now, it's important to have three openers in your side.
