    Interesting to see how Zimbabweans will cope with Johnson. These triangular series is what Cricket really needs instead of these unnecessary bilateral series. I'm not talking about commonwealth tri series like you have or use to have in Australia but normal short tri series.

    Absolute disgrace not selecting Hughes....australia deserve to get a scare with Faulkner and Marsh batting 6-7 (assume Haddin will open)

    Finch
    Haddin
    Smith
    Bailey
    Maxwell
    Marsh
    Faulkner
    Johnson
    Starc
    Richardson
    Lyon


    Given TPC has apparently been asked to bowl more, Boof's gone full NSW with his selection here. 9 bowlers in that XI.

    What in the world does Hughes have to do to get a place in the XI? If there is so much talk about getting TPC to bowl more, and playing and all-rounder at 7, what exactly is Mitch Marsh's role in the side? If he didn't bowl we wouldn't pick him, yet the way the side is shaping up he looks like ending up bowling 3-4 overs at best. As there is the is already 5 'true' bowlers in the side, it leaves very few overs to toss up between TPC, Marsh and Maxwell.

    Yeah, it's NSW syndrome:

    "Well we've got Forkers, Richardson, a returning Starc and Lyon who could all **** up, so let's pick two all-rounders to offset their potential to be ****. Oh and Mitch Marsh could break if we ask him to bowl, so Smitteh has to be prepared to bowl again."

    Yeah it is.
    The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

    Oh wow, that really surprises me. Tried to look it up after making the post and the Fox Sports website refused to work.

    Fox Sports has a strong commitment so cover all Australia's away internationals. Their commitment to showing other things that probably rate better at times like the English summer and the New Zealand summer is iffy but they were always going to show this IMO.

    I thought they said they were scaling back coverage of Australian stuff too, the UAE tour in particular.

    Well, that's awkward.

    Off to Somalia for you, so I don't have to admit being wrong in public
