    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.

    Likely Test Side: Warner, Cowan, Watson, Ponting, Clarke, Hussey, Wade, Siddle, Pattinson, Hilfenhaus, Lyon/Starc
    This B Team is better than the selected A team. Certainly has a better balance to it.

    No point selecting guys that are in bad form. Cutting has been woeful this season, so has Khawaja.

    Personally I'd take out both Cummins and Hazlewood from this side. IMO both need to get some shield cricket under their belts before further higher honors. As good as Cummins was last year he has bowled some dross this year(albeit in 20-20 games). I'd replace them with any two of Bird, McDermott and Butterworth.

    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.

    1. Cosgrove
    2. Klinger
    3. Khawaja
    4. Bailey/Ferguson
    5. Burns
    6. Christian
    7. Nev/Hartley +
    8. O'Keefe
    9. Cutting
    10. Butterworth/McDermott
    11. Bird

    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

    Cutting has not been woeful.

    He's been reasonable to good with the ball and terrific with the bat.

    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.
