    Hardly the New Years test when it starts on the 3rd is it. I remember watching it on the 1st when I lived in Sydney.

    What year was that? I don't think its true as I doubt we'd schedule Boxing Day from Dec 26-30 one day rest and then straight onto the next Test.

    Not that surprising, honestly; wristies always get special attention if they break through to Shield cricket. Christ, there was a couldashoulda Cricinfo retrospective on Craig Howard. Nice guy and all but the obsession with unearthing another leggie is and has always been ridiculous in this country.

    Spins up? 1st-3rd grade. Gets drift? "GET HIM IN THE TEST SIDE!" Let's just forget about the bloke currently chipping in and doing exactly what's asked of him.

    Australian Test team for SCG: Clarke, Bird, Cowan, Hughes, Hussey, Johnson, Lyon, Siddle, Starc, Wade, Warner, Maxwell (12th man)
    Big call. Don't mind it though.

    As much as I found the Sydney test quite painful to watch, I think Australia would benefit from really ****ing Sri Lanka up here and developing somewhat of a ruthless streak heading into India.

    I mind it a little because we are only picking four batsman who will (or should) lineup in the top 6 against India in our next Test. Giving another bat a chance at Test Cricket could potentially be more beneficial to the team.

    In saying that, Starc, Johnson and Bird are bowling off for a spot in our strongest XI so that's something too I guess.

    nah bad call. wade hasn't justified a promotion and one innings against a depleted minnow level attack doesn't make johnson a number 7. more bowling than we will need, usman should have come in.

    If its green Lyon wont be needed and if it turns of of the pace bowlers will be under bowled. Bad call indeed.

    Nah the pacers won't be underbowled because of Lyon, they'll be underbowled because SL will be rolled out for <250 twice.

    Lyon will probably be used sparingly until SL is about 8 down before being brought in to grab the prized wickets of Shaminda Eranga and Nuwan Pradeep to end up with figures of 2-40.

    Dire call IMO. Should've gone for Uzzie (or even Maxwell FFS) really.
