johnson or starc to miss for mine. which one is anyones guess
Clarke basically flat-out confirmed Starc, didn't he?
+ time's fickle card game ~ with you and i +
I agree AT that we will end up seeing that team.
You know if there was ever a time to 'rest' Clarke this would be the perfect opportunity. It gives Khawaja AND Maxwell an opportunity against lets face it an easier opponent. Huss to captain! This is all assuming Clarke isn't 100% fit, if he is there is no question that he plays.
I'd like to see
Tail isn't as strong but I'm a lot more confident of that bowling attack.
I would like to see:
1. Cowan 2. Warner 3. Hughes 4. Khawaja 5. Clarke 6. Hussey 7. Wade 8. Siddle 9. Starc 10. Lyon 11. Bird but I think AT's team is more likely.
Don't like Starc and Johnson in the same team, but reckon it will happen in Sydney.
Means more footmarks for Lyon though, so I don't have that much of a problem with it.

Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.
Can't wait for Berry's next press conference. First he'll go on and on about Lyon, and then he'll go on and on about Muirhead

Selectors were due for a phone hook-up with the Cricket Australia board before the New Year's Test to sign off on a back-up for Clarke if he went down at any stage at the SCG and they will also present contingency plans for the ODI series. Among the possible stand-in ODI skippers in the absence of Clarke and Watson are Australia's Twenty20 leader, George Bailey, and the retiring Mike Hussey.
Another player discussed has been NSW all-rounder Steve Smith, who presided over the Sydney Sixers' win in the inaugural T20 Big Bash League but who did not feature in Australia's most recent ODIs, against Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates. Opener David Warner is seen as a leader of the future but is not expected to come into captaincy calculations this summe
