    Ah I see. Quite.

    For a moment I thought you meant for Australia and I was going to rain down on you so hard you'd need reassembling by air carsh investigators.

    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

    Allows them to play four bowlers, and use Smith as a second spinner without relying on Clarke, I guess.

    Same spot that Maxwell was probably being groomed for, but might've gone cold on him?

    reserve batsman. i'm assuming that means one of the doolan/bailey etc group are better than that....(edit oh wait. they say Usman. hmmm. i have my doubts. about that being true)

    i think Smith being almost the only young-ish guy in domestic cricket to be sorta consistent over the past 24 months plays a part here. he's not doing this hot/cold **** like doolan/forrest etc. he's been fairly consistent, he's lost his conversion rate a bit which has hurt the bottom line, but he's stayed in the aus a teams, performed in them once or twice. it kinda makes sense on that level

    i don't think they would pick both of usman/smith. that seems really odd. i could understand usman/bailey or maybe bailey/smith but usman/smith...just seems weird.

    Yeah, Smith's bowling is the reason why they're considering him. No other way.

    I'm sure I read an article saying he hardly bowls anymore. So have a spot and start rolling your arm over son?

    My Squad of 15

    1st Test
    Cowan
    Warner
    Hughes
    Watson
    Clarke
    Haddin
    Wade
    Lyon
    Pattinson
    Siddle
    Bird/Starc

    Reserves
    Usman
    O’Keefe
    Starc/Bird
    Johnson

    I just think, for this tour, Haddin is the most likely player to score runs at number six – depressing that we have to go back to a 36 year old, but meh

    Harris, if fit, would be a monty

    Apparently he's dedicating his entire off-season to bowling.

    Definitely taking the Maxwell spot IMO. His batting isn't necessarily any better (he makes more runs, but his technique is more ****), but his temperament is way ahead of Maxwell's, not to mention the impact of their bowling is equally non-existent at Test level so isn't really a justifiable selection factor.

    And if the bowlers aren't taking wickets, at least we can field.

    Cribb to tear me apart.
