    Yeah he didn't have a good game, but I've definitely seen worse debuts.

    has anyone thrown out a shaun marsh-aaron finch comparison. in that everyone goes on about marsh in domestic t20's (with reason) but he always looked pathetic at international level, and man, finch, he looked like marsh in those two games

    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.

    Well I wasn't really, but even so, Warner was a bit different because he just couldn't get a crack in the Shield at all. Finch has played a stack of games now and been a failure to the point of not playing unless they have injuries. Once Warner actually got a proper crack in the Shield side he never looked back; it's likely IMO that if Warner was playing Shield cricket around the time of his ODI debut he would've been going pretty well.

    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

    My biggest problem with Finch is/was that he has technical deficiencies around off stump that have obviously been exploited at Shield level and it was a big stretch to think that it wasnt going to happen at ODI level

    Much bigger punt than Warner IMO

On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Well he isn't really. He made way for Johnson and/or Starc.

    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,
