    To be fair the more Starc bowls this season the more it looks like he should be at least in the frame. It's only Twenty20 obviously but there's no doubting he's in form. He shouldn't make it in over Hilf/Siddle/Pattinson, but if for some reason we decided to play four fast bowlers or one of those three went down, I'd definitely have him next in line while Harris is still out.

    Watson should not be saying, with regards to Haddin, "I have my fingers crossed for him, and I certainly think he deserves a chance to be able to take on the South Africans."

    Vice Captain shouldn't be saying that I reckon, wouldn't exactly make Wade feel loved. Needed to flat bat any question about the keeper position like Clarke and Ponting did. Just praise the both of them, say whoever is selected will be the right choice, both are capable of playing their role well vs. South Africa etc.

    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

    Who says Watson doesn't want Wade in the team too? There have been articles floating around suggesting both play. Definitely not something I would do though.

    Haddin does seem to be very popular with his teammates..

    You can buy Shane Watson for 3 quid?

    How much if you chuck in Mitch Johnson and Andrew Symonds as well?

    Why do any one want to buy a Aussie man whore that is worth less than the 3 quid medal around his neck?

    Should not be in a position of leadership, should not comment on team selections.

    If Clarke is injured and Watson captains Australia (for even one test), the whole thing has become a ****ing joke.
