Moeen is a perfectly fine bowler FFS
Squad for the first two T20 matches:
Bailey (C), Cutting, Doherty, Faulkner, Finch, Laughlin, Marsh, Maxwell, Starc, Voges, Wade, Warner.
I rate this squad. Pleased for Faulkner and its good to see big bash form rewarded. Rohrer slightly unlucky to be edged out by Voges.
What I don't really get is that Bailey batted at 4 in the first ODI and scored an excellent 89, with Hussey coming in after the platform had been set and creamed them. Next game with Khawaja unfairly dropped Bailey batted 3, Hussey 4 with no success.
So why did Dussey remain at 4 and Bailey moved to 5 when Clarke returned. Seems odd.
great, we've picked Faulkner the choker

Will say this once and then nothing else. Defamation laws quite clear in Aus.be careful.
gonna be a struggle to get 20 overs out of that group btw
i'd probably leave faulkner out of that
although yeah getting 4 overs from maxwell/voges/finch will be tricky. maybe faulkner in for maxwell to bat at 7

I hope for Bailey's sake the lack of Shield opportunity isn't going to hurt him for the Test squad. I'm not absolutely 100% convinced that he is the best option for our Test team by the way.
