    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    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

    Lyon had a good Australia A tour under his belt though and, more importantly, was a much better bowler for the conditions than Zampa will be.

    Plus I don't think I'll be able to convince anyone that he really is only the second best spin bowler from NSW to... if he gets picked in a Test squad, so we've gotta keep him outta there.

    Shock Hauritz recall?

    The cupboard's pretty bare and Invers doesn't like Beer much.

    England Lions are playing a few matches here next month #zampatoshine

    i don't necessarily think zampa or boyce should tour, but they've clearly gone off Beer, he's not even the first choice leftie anymore. he went from playing a test match to not being good enough to play for australia a in the space of like 3 months. it wouldn't surprise me to see them look elsewhere for that back-up spinner and well the two leggies seem the obvious direction.

    wouldn't make sense unless they pick 3 spinners for the tour. lyon and hauritz are basically the same person remember.

    I think the second spinner should really on be there as a backup in case Lyon gets injured tbh.

    Disagree on Lyon and Hauritz being the same person too obviously but we don't need to go there again.

    That and the fact that Lyon bowls a far better off break are two most obvious differences between the two people.

    just on lyon and the growing chat about him, given he got into the team more on bowling a certain style rather than wickets, surely all he has to do to keep his spot is to bowl that style. (which he hasn't been doing)

    I believe we'll see this squad:
    Clarke (c) Watson (vc) Warner Cowan Hughes Bailey Wade Siddle Starc Pattinson Lyon Johnson Bird DHussey Beer
    I'm pretty sure Maxwell will be in the squad, FTR. Hussey and Bailey probably fighting for one spot.
