    Whatever happened to just dropping someone though? So many players pick up injuries that no one seems to know about these days from all teams. Just think everyone hates to admit when someone is dropped.
    yeah, pretty sure he was really just injured. It's not some conspiracy to hide the fact that he was actually dropped

    yeah guess it seems legit in this instance but I just see this thing happening all the time with all players across the world.
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    If they're flying someone out it really should be Henriques. He's in incredible touch right now with the bat and being a dubber he's playing on the flattest, spinniest wicket we have.

    Would probably rather him than Maxwell if we are going to play two spinners.

    Such as? I'm genuinely interested, I don't follow much overseas cricket, as you well know.

    Last few years Australian selectors have been brutal with guys like Haddin and Watson

    I just find it odd that many guys lose form and are suddenly injured. In India at least I recall Dhawan and Rahul and now Vijay seemingly injured out of nowhere. Too lazy to recollect and list all instances but its way too many times now I read that so and so is injured without anyone knowing and I go "wow, that's convenient, as we all thought he will get dropped"... Might just be me building sand castles here but its been curious.

    I think it's probably a bit of both. They're dropping him for the next test, his injury probably means they're not picking him again for the fourth test no matter what happens in the third, so get a replacement over.

    Wouldn't surprise me. Maybe if he hadn't have been so useless they would have kept him on tour.

    Stoinis, really haven't watched him enough. When I have he's gone ok, and he's surely a better bat than MMarsh

    Often times elite athletes carry injuries and it's only when they can't handle it any more that they announce it. Happens all the time.

    I don't actually know that he is tbh. Henriques is a better bat than both.

    Stoinis has been in shocking form with the bat this summer, his 46 against WA yesterday is his highest score, the 140odd against NZ was the exception which proved the rule.

    Even with the 46 included he still only averaging 15 for the season in the Shield.

    Could be a certainty then ?
