    Picking Hilfenhaus in the ashes squad wouldn"t be the worst selection at all. The last time he played the ashes in England he was by far the best Oz bowler.The condition does suit his bowling.Pattinson Starc Siddle Harris Hilfenhaus ( ofcourse Bird may beat him into the squad).Depends on the number of pacers they decide to take though.Faulkner despite being a very good short form option shouldn"t be anywhere near the test team.Henriques should be ahead of Faulkner as the test all rounder( if an all rounder is needed in England).Smith should have been given a contract on the basis that he will be in the first ashes test, and his improvement in his batting should mean he"ll be in the short formats as well.Khawaja and. Smith should have been given contracts.Nice to see Cummins on that list too, easily the most exciting prospect in Australia since Glenn Mc Grath.

    i don't see why Smith will be in the 1st Ashes test. He's a shot sure, but he got picked for India because he can play, he can be dropped from England because he's not as flash against seam
    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

    It's an ok selection if Bird is unfit and he is nothing more than a backup seamer who doesnt come into consideration except for injuries

    If Hilf is preferred over a fit Bird, then it's a joke and England will be pissing themselves

    I had 2 changes to the official list. Out goes Hilfenhaus and Cummins (who finished 21 and 22) and in comes Bird and Smith.
    Lies. Henriques and Smith in, Cummins (22), Hilf (23) didn't make my top 20. Bird was 21st.

    Personally think if ODIs are worth 3, T20 1, tests should be rated an 8 or 10.

    As long as Johnson isn't picked ahead of either you are ok.

    Dunno if it's just the way it's been written up but the text barely sounds like stuff AB would say.

    There's not much I'd prefer over a fit bird tbh.

    In England I can see a situation where Faulkner could be an option to bat at 8 and be the fourth seamer. Might never happen but say if Starc isn't fit and it's a pitch similar to Hobart, he'd be very useful.
