    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.
    So you think if Copeland, Starc and Cummins all play in the same team, Copeland will bat below the other two. No chance.

    NSW are playing QLD - in an ideal world Copes plays and goes for 0/100, but with the bunch of Nufs in the QLD lineup, its not realistic.

    You do realise Starc averages 20 plus with the bat and Cummins recently is batting above Starc at 8 or 9 for Australia and the Sixers. Both played as bowling all rounders in juniors and bat higher then Copeland at grade level as well.

    IIRC Pattinson batted decently against the India in their latest series.

    Copeland was a batsman at junior level if you're going to bring that into it.

    Should probably have clarified that as Australian/NSW youth levels, not Grade youth levels.

    Predicitng this will be Australia's next Test Team

    1. Cowan
    2. Warner
    3. Watson
    4. Ponting
    5. Clarke
    6. Hussey
    7. Wade
    8. Siddle
    9. Pattinson
    10. Hilfenhaus
    11. Lyon
    12. Starc

    Possible issues....

    Cowan has only scored 118 runs @ 23.60 this season with HS of 42 (3 games)
    Watson, Hussey & Warner haven't played a FC game since the last Test (april)
    Starc yet to play a FC game this season

    Agree with all that

    Cowan is a concern fullstop

    He's an absolute journeyman

    I don't blame him though as his performance in the international theatre to date is just a reflection of his FC career

    That top 3 doesnt inspire confidence, shaky to say the least. Not convinced Watson is a long term test player anymore, just cant bat long enough to be a regular in the top or middle order, no other place for him atm i guess, Hussey aint going anywhere, unless clarke moves to 3 and Watson to 5 or 6, not gonna happen though. Outside chance of Ponting going back to 3, in dominant form right now.

    Hussey has a very poor record against the South African attack so I wouldn't bank on him too much this series. Ponting, Clarke and Wade could be the mainstay of our batting lineup this series with odd contributions from the rest.

    I do think Cowan is a good choice to have against Philander though. More likely to leave those deliveries that have been getting a lot of left handers out over the past year. Warner could really be in trouble this series although I'd be happy to be proven wrong.

    It isn't one respect though - conversion rate. I think he was 15/15 or something before the test debut, and is currently 0/3.

    probably not a big deal though
    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

    Hussey's been shocking against Steyn/Morkel, hasn't he?

    EDIT: http://stats.espncricinfo.com/ci/eng...s;type=batting

    Cowans 74 (73 balls) off the Vics making me feel a bit better since its against Pattinson & McKay as well as the Aussie A attack of Hastings, McDonald and Maxwell

    It is against Darren Pattinson not James. Still decent knock, though it is on a road, but runs are runs.
