    Australia Contracts 2016/17

    George Bailey
    Joe Burns
    Nathan Coulter-Nile
    Pat Cummins
    James Faulkner
    Aaron Finch
    John Hastings
    Josh Hazlewood
    Usman Khawaja
    Nathan Lyon
    Mitchell Marsh
    Shaun Marsh
    Glenn Maxwell
    Peter Nevill
    James Pattinson
    Adam Voges
    Peter Siddle
    Steven Smith
    Mitchell Starc
    David Warner

    Hastings the only surprising inclusion for me, while Shaun Marsh is there annoyingly. I reckon if Voges chucks it in he'll move into his spot.
    Not surprised they picked Cummins even though he barely seems to be able to get on the field.
    No idea why they bothered with Siddle. Bird would be a much better choice for a back up, but I suppose Siddle has 'experience'.
    Don't know who our limited overs wicketkeeper or spinner is going to be.

    Bird is alright but Siddle is clearly a better bowler and fits much better into that attack they have atm. A transition player for the new generation who puts out consistent performance and gives it everything. This is from a Siddle hater ftr.

    Would have been correct a couple of years ago

    Siddle is ****ed now. I can't see him getting even as good as Bird is now, even before his latest career-threatening injury.

    Shaun Marsh baffling for me. Good ODI bat but Aus can surely find someone his equal in that regard who isn't abject at T20 and so inconsistent in Tests. He also isn't young.

    You won't find a bigger Siddle hater than me but he was pretty bloody good over the last year in his small sample of matches. Don't think he's great or anything but I'd deffo take him over Bird who just looks uninspired as a bowler these days.

    Guessing you saw him in the 1st Test v NZ, where granted he bowled **** but since then:

    2/66 & 5/59 v NZ 2nd Test (bowled very well)
    7/45 & 3/47 v NSW in Hobart (didn't see)
    5/81 v SA in Adelaide (didn't see but impressive figures)

    Siddle has genuinely looked very ordinary 80% of the times he's bowled over the last year or so, just lucky he's was at his best in a couple of high profile matches (specifically that Ashes Test)

    Think them wanting control over his rehab might well play a role in this.
