    Probably resting.

    I think they would rest almost all of them for WI ODI Series since it ends it's like a week or 10 days before 1st test against India.

    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    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

    The sad reality is that this is closer to the Australian best team compared to what people realize.

    The ODI team hardly covered themselves in glory last year and looking at the player stats it is hard to pick a definite 11 that would be considered our definite 'best' team. In 25 games, the only players to score centuries were Clarke (1), Warner (2) and Forrest (1). No other batsman managed a score of more than 75.

    Only 3 bowlers averaged under 30 with the ball - McKay (27 wickets at 23.88), Watson (17 @ 23.05) and Starc (18 @ 21.27).

    Given how unsettled the ODI team is and their mediocre performances last year, I don't see an issue with including the four highest run getters in the Ryobi Cup (Finch/Hughes/Khawaja/Dussey)

    Watson is one of the best odi all rounders and Clarke is a quality player.These two players should no doubt strenthen the team.The team pick has Maxwell and Dussey as the fifth bowler. When Watson comes back he automatically adds greater strength to the attack.My best possible odi team has
    1.Watson
    2.Finch
    3.Hughes
    4.Clarke
    5.Warner
    6.Maxwell/Dussey
    7.Wade
    8.Johnson/ Hazelwood
    9.Starc
    10.Mckay
    11. Doherty/O"Keefe

    I know number 5 will be a new role for Warner but I think he"s a quality player and he"ll make that position his own.Thoughts?

    the rendition in either the Sydney or Melbourne test (I can't remember which one) was hilarious

    I remember in the world cup in 2011 where they had recordings of the anthems it sounded like it was from Mario Kart or something
