    Australia joins Zimbabwe

    In the list of test nations not featuring a single player averaging above 40 with the bat (based on last XI featured)

    Seriously, what's happening to this once great team? Whatever be the circumstances, not a single player other than poor old Clarke who's capable of delivering it with the bat?

    Should've picked Dane Tilse tbh. Starceh proving height gives you the hitting power to survive, so it seems the logical next step.

    Tilse clearly the answer.

    Wouldn't play a reverse sweep early in his innings, that's for sure.

    Not to mention he's the right side of 30, and his FC average isn't sitting in the 30s.

    Dunno if he'd look at home at international level though.

    Yeah Nasir actually averages over 40 in both Tests and ODIs I think. Hasn't played a lot yet though.

    No room for Tilse in the Australian top order.

    Couldn't possibly replace someone who did this
