it's mainly to do with being insanely talented
How strange is it that the least experienced of this Aussie batting line up are batting in the top 3? That just sounds like something the Windies or the Pak team of the last 15 years or so would do... I always believe the most experienced guys must bat as high as possible in the batting line up. Just feels strange that guys with the pedigree of Ponting, Clarke and Hussey have to bat 4,5 and 6 when relative newbies are batting 1,2 and 3.

I totally get that.. but I just feel at least one out of Huss, Punter and Clarke should be batting #3 and ease the pressure on some of these youngsters. Watson esp. should be batting at 4 long term, IMO...
Firmly believe that the batting lineup should be set on technical capabilities and mental comfort first, experience second. Cowan, Warner and Quiney are all opening batsmen; I'm sure they'd rather bat where they are than further down and they'll score more runs as a result. If they're not good enough then they're not good enough but they're batting in the right spots. Different to what Pakistan have done in the past by actually elevating young domestic #4/5 batsmen to #3 at Test level.

what are the CW bookies paying for warner to pass 50 in either innings
