    Seems a confused contracted selection. I'd be tearing my hair out if I was an Aussie looking at how the selectors have worked in the last 6 months.

    Interesting that he should take over from Henriques so quickly though.
    I'm not convinced he can bat 7 in a Test side though. Averages a touch under 30, which could be worse I guess, but he has yet to register a ton in FC cricket.

    Even Moey, Maxwell and Tim Paine had done that.

    I dont have a problem with Faulkner being in the T20 and ODI squads but the way Invers has been gushing, you'd have to assume that he is going to be picked for the Ashes tour as an all-rounder

    I'll be generous and say that he is as good with the bat as Starc and he is not considered an all-rounder

    His bowling is promising but he will struggle at the top level until he learns to move the ball as back of the hand slower ball bouncers wont get many people out at test level

    "George Bailey has been one of our most successful ODI batsmen since he debuted in that format in March 2012. Clint McKay's success as an ODI player was reflected in him being awarded Australia's One Day Player of The Year at the Allan Border Medal.

    "The National Selection Panel is very impressed by the manner in which James Faulkner has been performing and developing. He is a very competitive young man who consistently manages to have an impact on games with both bat and ball. Glenn Maxwell is a talented young player who has had opportunity invested in him. He is very aware that he needs to tighten his game and perform with greater impact and consistency."
    I would also much prefer they gave the Test players preference of the shorter stuff that I don't give a **** about. I dont mind Baily as he is seen as a potential test bat but not at the expense of Uzi and Smith. Same with McKay over Bird and Faulkner over Bird and Henriques.

    The way Invers gushes over Maxwell and Faulkner I think we can expect both in the Ashes squad. Which just makes me think that they didnt leave the funky squad selections back in India. My biggest concern for the Ashes is the NSP and which project player will get ram rodded into the test team next. Maybe Maxwell and Faulkner to play the first test. Will have to stock up on Rum for that.

    So I decided to go: 25x5,24x5-1x5 for the best 25 test players and then times by 3 for ODIs and by 1 for t20 to work out who I expected to make the list of 20.

    I had 2 changes to the official list. Out goes Hilfenhaus and Cummins (who finished 21 and 22) and in comes Bird and Smith.

    Harris, Faulkner and Haddin now appear locks for the Ashes tour

    I would be surprised if Bird went - mainly because he's played no cricket since being injured

    I think Hilfenhaus will edge out Bird for the final pacers spot

    Good thing that Haddin is going. Just need someone to finish the job with Wade and leave some training balls out or something

    James Pattinson, the Australia fast bowler, is out of the IPL and may also miss the Champions Trophy that precedes the Ashes after he was compelled to have surgery on what Cricket Australia has described as "a non-cricket related medical condition in his lower abdominal region."

    Pattinson shouldn't be in the ODI team anyway.
