Barnes in this match revealed himself once more as one of the most remarkable bowlers that this country has ever produced. He has a positively wonderful command of the leg break.... His great height makes it difficult for the batsman to follow the flight of the ball. He is useful on every kind of wicket, whereas few bowlers of his pace are able to bowl on a sticky wicket. - JACK HOBBS, 'My Cricket Memories' (1924)

Kind of fitting that the quality of posts so far in this thread is similar to the quality of Australia's current top order.
Mine would be:
Clarke (no one is going to argue this surely?)
Rogers (of the available guys is so far and away the most consistent fc run scorer)
Warner (can destroy an opposition, but needs to learn to make more ugly runs when conditions don't suit)
Hughes (the fact that he dominated the Shield when he went back shows both that he should be perservered with and that no one else in the Shield is challenging for his spot)
Cowan (which says much more about what we have to choose from than his ability, solid but extremely limited)
take your pick for 6 from a big bag of ordinary. At a pinch I'd go Cosgrove but wouldn't fight anyone over it.
How many times do I have to say this.
Hog the glory lol.
But yeah the views of adub and Jono has made me change my mind.
So everyone, your best 6 bats? List in best order not batting order - adub is the only vote I've counted so far.
