    Indeed. Quiney isn't the best leaver in the world, especially early, so I think Philander will probably be his biggest worry. If they try and pepper him with Morkel bouncers he will hammer him IMO.

    Reminds me of Donald vs Elliott in 97, MCG. Donald was all talk leading up to the test, how he'd bounce Elliott out, then comes day 1, Elliott caught hooking. Elliott didnt make a single score in the whole series. Which was weird, because Elliott played Donald well in the series earlier in 97, and who can forget THIS shot

    Why did Hazlewood get a call up? I think the guy looks really promising, but there have been plenty of others that surely should be ahead of him at this stage. If was he was picked to balance out the attack or something as well, half of the more worthy options like Butterworth, Bird, McDermott etc. could have provided that as well. Don't know what someone like Butterworth has to do, especially given he can provide a decent amount with the bat as well...pretty bull**** really.

    I'm happy for Quiney, hope he can make the most of this opportunity.

    Certainly no mug with the bat.

    This is a more confusing decision to me though, given that one was pretty obvious as to why they fast tracked those two (and a good part of the reason behind Starc too, really) - pace. I'm pretty sure Hazlewood is quicker than the other options, but I wouldn't think so much so that he'd stand out because of it...what does he bowl, like 130-140 or something?

    why wouldn't he get the same treatment as starc, cummins and pattinson? He was the one for whom the treatment was created!

    Nah, both were fast-tracked because they're quality, not because they're quick. Same with Hazlewood. He's a bowler more likely to take Test wickets than Butterworth and McDermott even if he's not as credentialled as Butterworth yet. I'm coming around to Bird but can definitely see why the selectors would be pretty keen to give Hazlewood more of a go than the others.
