IIRC Pattinson batted decently against the India in their latest series.
If Haddin is named tomorrow, then the selectors have no testicles

Predicitng this will be Australia's next Test Team
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.

Will say this once and then nothing else. Defamation laws quite clear in Aus.be careful.
Hussey's been shocking against Steyn/Morkel, hasn't he?
Ouch. Averages <19.
