Will say this once and then nothing else. Defamation laws quite clear in Aus.be careful.
Marsh didn't always look pathetic in international cricket itbt. At times looked brilliant.
It's just he often was dog ****.

The side they've picked for the next two games has better balance, though let's hope they don't play both Maxwell and Henriques in the same game.

Said it before, but I don't think someone who can't even get a game regularly in Shield cricket should be playing ODIs as a top order batsman. Bowling's a bit different because of what the respective pitches are like, but for mine Finch's failures as a Shield cricketer so far foretold him failing against decent international bowling in ODIs. I don't think everyone quite realises exactly how flat the Ryobi Cup wickets have been this season either.
I think Finch will probably eventually turn out to decent Shield batsman, but I find it pretty unlikely that he'll be a good ODI batsman first. I've always been an advocate of treating the forms of the game separately, but I struggle to believe they are so different as to have a player failing in Shield cricket regularly to the point of being dropped at the same time as he's forcing his way into the ODI side as a quality performer. Especially if he's not playing for NSW.

If Callum Ferguson was playing for another state there'd be a high chance he'd be dropped from the FC game, but there's no doubting his one day credentials. I know he's not as bad at FC cricket as Finch but it's another example.
Personally I had no problem with Finch being selected because his form warranted, no matter how flat the pitches in Ryobi cup are. He's been the in form player and deserved a shot at it.
given it came with the first two opening choices out of the team, i didn't mind it that much (non Richardson), but that he failed wasn't a surprise
Can't believe Cutting makes way for a nuffie like Maxwell.

I wonder if the success/failure of Big Bash teams has impacted on Australian selection? Like would Cutting had stayed in te squad for the GABBA match if the Heat were knocked out? Is Henriques playing due to sixers failure? I guess Smith would have stayed in the squad if that was the case.
I'm happy that Cutting didn't disgrace himself like he could have and then ruined his chances for a test call up in the future. Definitely not suited to the one day game,
