What has Hazelwood done in 4 day cricket to be even remotely considered for test selection? When has he played three 4 day games in a row?

To be fair, even Starc, as Noble One mentioned, hasn't been lighting up the world in FC cricket recently, and he's with a huge shout of playing the firs test.
Sadly, and I really hate saying this, but I reckon the selectors have to think about more than just FC when selecting players. T20 form is a factor.

Still no room for McDermott?
No point selecting guys that are in bad form. Cutting has been woeful this season, so has Khawaja.
The only other concerns I would have are Khawaja opening(since he doesn't open atm), Ferguson at 3 and Haddin. If this side is based around building experience(which it should be) at a higher level then better someone else as keeper IMO(Nev, Hartley, Ludemen and even Triffit have all got something going for them TBH). As far as the rest of the order goes I'd bring in Klinger to open alongside Cosgrove, push Khawaja to 3 and drop one of Bailey or Ferguson depending on whether the selections are based on overall career stats or recent form. Captaincy may also be considered for Bailey.
7. Nev/Hartley +

Will say this once and then nothing else. Defamation laws quite clear in Aus.be careful.
he bowled like tripe in Adelaide, no penetration or control, was comfortably outbowled by Hopes. looked to have zero confidence after his appalling bowling vs Victoria in the one dayer.
Lucky for Cutting the First Class season is not just one game in Adelaide.
