    The guy is an insane athlete, really is. Belting some good attacks (not just accumulating runs, spanking the **** out of them) and was bouncing around in the field today like he wasn't a day over 21. Hoping he gives Morkel, et al a touch-up.

    He bloody well better, because no selector will have the requisite balls to drop him until next year's Sydney Test.

    So Haddin or Wade chaps ? What is looking more likely? It seemed Wade was in the driving seat a couple of weeks ago.

    Has to be Wade IMO. Nothing between them on glovework really, and Haddin's Shield season has constituted one big knock on a road, and even then he didn't look hugely convincing to start. Wade's 80-odd when nobody else passed 20 (or whatever it was) has to be worth more.


    One of the guys at my club maintains Hazelwood wasn't picked in the A side because he'll get a debut at the Gabba. Because he's obviously jumped ahead of Starc, Pattinson, Siddle, Hilfenhaus or whoever else is in contention on T20 form..

    Maybe this question would be better off in the domestic thread, but I wonder what bowling attack NSW will go with against the bulls, considering Henriques was their only bowler to be selected for Australia A, and there aren't any internationals.

    Has to be Watto, O'Kefee and 3 of: Starc, Cummins, Bollinger, Hazelwood, Copeland?

    depends on what players the selectors tell us to play
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Yep, and that's why I reckon it'll be Starc, Cummins and Hazelwood.

    NSW will play Haddin at 6, SOK at 7, the 3 young quicks and Copeland at 8. Copes probably to play to help the batting over Bollinger.

    Starc and Cummins are better batsmen, then Copeland.

    The fact that Copeland captained the 2nd XI side, tells me he will be the one that misses out. Normally captaining 2nd XI usually means you going to have a stint in until a spot opens up.
