    The 'unfairly shafted by Australian selectors' XI

    We may have enough for eleven now. Let me check:

    1. Simon Katich
    2.
    3. Rob Quiney
    4. Brad Hodge
    5.
    6. David Hussey
    7. Brad Haddin
    8. Stuart Clark
    9. Nathan Hauritz
    10. Steve O'Keefe
    11. Nathan Bracken

    Almost. Can anyone fill in the gaps?

    David Hussey hardly a worthy inclusion.
    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

    If you are going for a currently playing XI then your other opener has to be Rogers as for number 5 I would move Hussey up and put McDonald in there at 6. Though to be fair if he was fit I think he would be playing this test so it is debatable currently if he has been shafted.

    Why was Phil Jaques dropped?
    I'm always suspicious of shops that sell bait.

    He did his back, was out injured for ages, and never really scored enough runs once he came back. It was more unfortunate than it was harsh, especially since Hayden retired right as he was just coming back from that injury.
