    Henriques to get picked in the squad, infuriating almost all of us
    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

    Id be pretty disappointed if he didn't make the squad - that is the Australia A squad for the lead up game.

    aus a will be easy enough for them to pick...

    1. cowan
    2. nevill
    3. bailey
    4. christian
    5. henriques
    6. m. marsh
    7. wade
    8. lyon
    9. cummins
    10. starc
    11. pattinson

    (I'm only half joking)

    where do stand on the bowling line-up? i'm pretty sure they'll pick lyon in the aus a game and if he doesn't impress, 4 seamers could be on. but otherwise i expect it'll be siddle/hilf/patto

    Yeah, I'd go with Hilf/Siddle/Patto

    Give Starc, Lyon and perhaps Cummins a go in the Aus A game. Cummins definitely doesn't play enough FC cricket IMO.

    All 6 states play Shield matches starting Nov 1 or Nov 2, so I expect a few surprise inclusions in the A team to ensure no state side is completely screwed through missing players.

    The domestic scheduling hasn't been great then surely? If its the 'A' team they should have ensured there were no Shield games on to actually get the 'A' side out.

    Big test for the Saffies, to see how long they can hold this burden of becoming no.1

    Think Australia have to fit Starc in personally. Yeah, he's only done it at T20/ODI level, but the way he's bowling he'd take poles in the longer format no doubt - especially that the majority of the Saffie top order are RHB with Starc's strength being bringing the ball back in.

    Starc is Lyon's footmarks. That's all I ask; wickets are a bonus.

    Reckon you are basing your decision from a South African POV.

    Watson, Warner, Hussey, Clarke, Hilfenhaus, Starc could all do with the state game leading up to the Test match.

    The A team will still be competitive.

    If Starc plays I hope they don't leave Patto out, much as Hilf and Siddle have bowled well the past year. Can't see four quicks playing, because that would make five with Watson, a ridiculous over-reach you'd think.

    They might not Watson to bowl though

    Agree that Starc playing has obvious benefits for Lyon that are well worth considering
