He decided four years is too short for Joe Carter to address his defensive footwork probs and make it 8/11.
He's calling it pretty straight lately, Howsie. We all thought Carl Cachopa had some stodgy valour about him, but Howsie was right, he was just a wallflower who dreamed of loosening up a bit and getting into agribusiness, but at that stage didn't know how.
Nic Maddinson currently has Shaun Marsh Syndrome. Looks great, but really doesn't inspire that much confidence at Test level. I suspect he'll get a go around 2016 or 2017, be dropped for a couple of years, and then hopefully come back and make the 5000 Test runs I had him nailed on for. All the talent in the world; he just has to use it.
Jake Doran will still be very young. Big call to pick him for a Test gig this early, even if the signs are good. A lot can happen in 4 years for a prodigy.
Zampa/Boyce may come along nicely, but Gazza will be hitting his prime IMO.
Phil Hughes is currently in the selectors sight and quite rightly so. He has scored heaps in the Sheffield Shield.He will replace Rogers one feels when Rogers retire.Maddinson is still quite young and has all the talent in the world.I think we're entering into an exciting period in Aussie cricket sure the Cameron White ,Ferguson , Marsh generation have failed but we are now booming with young talents.I said it before and I"ll say it again Australia will be a force because of their pace prospects.
Something about Warner and Hughes just doesn't feel right to me.
