i meant for themselves, you damien martyn
With the tests locations switching around, it will depend whether I still go to Chennai or Hyderabad and just head there earlier for the 1st or 2nd tests, or alternatively stick with my original timeline, and go to the Mohali or Delhi test.
If Sachin could hurry up and announce this as his last series it would make my decision easier, as I'll just choose Delhi and tell the family to **** off I won't be visiting. :ph34r:
But if Lyon gets dropped, who will lead out team song!
I believe we'll see this squad:
Clarke (c) Watson (vc) Warner Cowan Hughes Bailey Wade Siddle Starc Pattinson Lyon Johnson Bird DHussey Beer
yeah I think sadly beer is the best option. perhaps raddin instead of dussey
I'd be surprised if Hilf missed the touring party. Not that I think he should absolutely be there, but I'd be surprised.
I would rather have SoK, Boyce or Zampa in there ahead of Beer.
With SoK you have the same bowler, but he can bat. Boyce and Zampa are at least promising talents, which is more than we can say for any other spinners around the place.
It isn't because I rate them at all - I definitely don't. It's more about how little I rate Michael Beer.
I would seriously consider picking Krejza as a specialist for the conditions if he wasn't in career-worst form; he's become a complete parody of himself though. It has to be Beer; it's not a good situation but it is what it is.
remember though, they decided beer wasn't better than holland 6 months ago #anythingcanhappen
zampa would be lunacy
