    I hope we bring in Ferguson, Coulter-Nile and Henriques for Voges, Mckay/Johnson and Haddin next game.

    Better to come in at 1-170 odd than 1-40. Probably the best opening partnership India have ever had in ODIs. I was convinced they had it won with 200 to go, unless by some miracle McKay could get a hat-trick. The chase looked easy because it was. Even Maxwell got a 50 (would of got more except for a dumb run-out).

    If you do the run rates for both teams: Australia last 20 overs: 9.7
    India last 20 overs: 9.6

    No point taking over the young guys if we aren't going to play them in ODIs.

    1. Hughes (wk) 2. Finch 3. Watson 4. Bailey 5. Ferguson 6. Maxwell 7 Henriques 8 Faulkner 9 Coulter-Nile 10. Mckay 11. Doherty

    Yessssss, intent. #neverenoughbowlers

    Yes there is; sometimes players on tour get injured.

    Yeah obviously we need to have a squad but I don't see what the problem is about giving squad members an opportunity instead of sitting on the sidelines when domestic cricket is taking place at home. We just conceded a **** load of runs last night so there is nothing wrong with changing the bowling unit a bit. Haddin isn't anything special in ODIs, giving Ferguson another opportunity would be good to see and as you pointed out, Voges would make way for Clarke's return. Also, I don't want Johnson and McKay sharing the new ball every single game only to get injured just before the World Cup and our alternatives are very inexperienced.

    These are just changes I would like to see for a game but understand that it is unlikely all 3 would happen at once. I honestly think though that Henriques would be one of the better bowlers in Indian conditions and would like him in our XI next game.

    So silly. Heaps of big chases look on after a big partnership and then a couple of wickets screw up the chase. Kohli didn't let that happen, and he also didn't bog down the team.

    Basically he was awesome. The idea that he wasn't under pressure when he came in is pretty crazy.

    I've been loving the policy of actually selecting the best side available for each game (or at least what they think is the best side available). If they want to manage the workload of the young bowlers or look after Clarke's back I can get behind that but making three random changes for the sake of giving everyone in the squad a game would be a terrible decision. There is no way Ferguson is a better batsman than Voges IMO and he's hardly had a decent hit anyway, bringing in Henriques for Haddin would significantly weaken both the batting and the wicket keeping for the sake of having five seamers for an ODI in India, and as much as I hate Johnson and McKay they're both better OD bowlers NCN at present. If you think Henriques is one of Australia's better bowlers in these conditions (which I massively, massively disagree with FTR, but anyway) then drop a bowler for him; not the wicket keeper.

    Lets win the series eh.

    Hughes could take over the wk role, although I don't think they will go down that route, specialist job and all.
