    The only problem with benchy's argument - which I mostly agree with - is that it doesn't actually look like there's an imminent injury to Starc since they tossed up resting him for Sydney instead of here. Otherwise, yeah, we've got long-term considerations with such a talented but young bowler.

    not quite getting this. he's in the danger zone. there's not up for debate. so the debate is 'rest him or take the risk?". and they thought about taking the risk of playing him here, and resting him for sydney, but decided, probably because of pattinson last season, to not take the risk. simple as

    Starc and Johnson can be better than each other on their day, or worse. I really don't have a problem with this rotation on that basis. If we had 3 pace bowlers who were clearly fit and our best options, then yes they should be playing each test.

    Sorry, what's he in the danger zone for? Sounds like the Top Gun soundtrack.

    Why don't we just admit we don't rate SL and we're giving a few blokes a run for the Ashes?

    Sri Lanka looks like a beautiful country. Hoping to go there next year.


    Anything to get away from Burgey.

    And I'm lead to believe they're all small. So those little Sri Lankans should look up to me like a god with my 6 foot frame.

    Yeah, it is not like you need to play a full strength side against the minnows. Should just play an Australia A against them. The match would be over in three days, they can rest the players during the two days off.

    I mean, they trusted the science and rested Hilf didn't they? That worked well.

    I think it's time we got a full blown explanation as to what "the science" is, frankly. Because ATM the only science in play is the wonder of how a bloke like Pat Howard:
    a. Walks around with his head up his own arse; and
    b. Seems to be dictating to the selectors and captain who plays and when, based on what a bloke tells him when he gives him a call and asks how he feels.

    Thought the science of the telephone was pretty well settled tbh.
