    Yes our odi side is dire but we have to start thinking about selections a bit better. Replace Wade with Hughes behind the stumps. That way we can play Hughes out of position and give us another useless bowling option at 6th change in Wade.

    G Bailey - has to be one of the most underrated going around. Has a great calming presense at the wicket and a steady head on his shoulders. Would have no qualms about him batting 6 in the Test side.

    At this rate he'll need until 10:15 tonight to do it.

    A lot of these new blokes to the odi side seem incapable of rotating strike and having any tempo to an innings.

    He's taking a lot of time himself.

    I've never really rated him at all but is under-rated about him is how he's performed so far in the ODI side. Say what you like about whether he should've been picked in the first place but he's been very good since it happened. The talk of him being a "specialist captain" annoys me; Australian cricket is an absolutely no shape to be leaving out a batsman who has performed so decently in his role so far.

    This is exactly where I thought we'd miss Clarke badly. Just not pacing the innings at all.

    Nah... run rate not an issue...

    Batsmen just gotta stay patient and keep reminding themselves that at some point Perrera is likely to have a bowl...

    Since Australia have picked Henriques they should not only give him an extended run in the odi team but bat him at 6.The kid is good enough to bat at 6.
    You must be basing this on a hunch because there is absolutely no evidence whatsoever that he's capable of even doing up his own pad straps, let alone bat six at any form of the game for Australia.

    bailey's gotta miss the T20's. his batting doesn't like right at all and it's probably fair to say the injured wrist is playing it's part
