    Is this CricketWeb's greatest poster in the short history of the forum?

    If they select Watson as a batsman alone, which I am in favour of completely, he must open.

    In the next 6-12 months, Alex Doolan should make his way into the middle order.

    Yeah I think Doolan very much looks the goods. Hope he kicks on.

    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    New role for Shane Watson - retired Test cricketer.

    Watson may quit Test cricket after axing

    Shane Watson is contemplating his future in the game after being axed from the squad for the Mohali Test on disciplinary grounds and then leaving the tour to be with his pregnant wife. Watson was one of four players punished by the team management for ignoring team orders.....

    Of course, now he's "contemplating his future".

    Guy is such a massive soft cock.

    EITHER SAY YOU WANT TO PLAY TESTS FOR AUSTRALIA, OR SAY YOU'RE RETIRING.

    Weak as piss is Watson.

    Pretty certain he's just waiting for Arthur to resign, and remaining non-committal till then. Rare strategic nous from our Shane.

    Among all the reasons to bag Watson, the questions he gets asked aren't one of them.
    You are the word, the word is 'destroy' - I break this bottle and think of you fondly

    Australia Cricket News: Shane Watson wishes to open across formats | ESPN Cricinfo

    "I have had my best success opening in all formats," Watson told the Sydney radio station 2GB on Tuesday. "I love going in knowing I can just take on the game and not worry about the consequences, which is when I am batting at my best.

    "The biggest challenge for me when I am batting down the order is assessing the situation of the game and also trying not to worry about getting out and that's normally when I get into a slightly negative mindset, which can affect my performance at times."

    Lol.
