    patto can barely make it through two fc games in a row without reaching his limit. he's not even remotely close to test match ready.
    citoyens, vouliez-vous une révolution sans révolution?

    cummins should be like tenth in line for a test spot. it's not like he's set the world on fire in the cricket he's actually played this summer.

    Surely Siddle's a lock based on his experience in England? Johnson sucks with the Duke, Harris has no knees and everyone else is inexperienced.

    yeah but he didn't set the world on fire prior to his debut either.Just think he is the sort of bloke you'd pick if fit and play

    i'd rather him actually prove himself in fc cricket first, especially when we're not exactly short on bowlers.

    Future people are going to be so confused when they look up Siddle 5fers on youtube and read his cricinfo profile about as to why he was so disliked during his career and always being dropped from fans' teams.

    I don't really like Burns being dropped for seemingly no reason. He looked okay in his two Tests, went back and averaged 58 in the Shield games between those Tests and the end of the season.

    I've always liked Voges and I really hope he does well if he plays, but I just buy into the idea that someone who has been playing Shield cricket for 13 years without ever putting back to back seasons together before now should leapfrog an incumbent just because he's seeing it well.

    Picking a 35 year old journeyman who has never produced the consistency required to knock on the door, over a young guy who has just peeled off two 50s in his last Test and has the ability to bat anywhere in the order...

    Is quite shocking
