    A left field suggestion is to pick someone who has played all their tests in India. Peter George has had a consistent if not outstanding season.

    But expect Cummins to be picked

    Given that they will probably be just the net bowler, I say give to Sayers

    George getting a game because he played in India previously would be a surprising selection to say the least.

    Maxwell at 6 and Pattinson/Cummins at 8 would give our team the best opportunity to win. However, I definitely think both Cummins and Pattinson would benefit from playing in the final round and most likely the Shield final too.

    We will probably end up going Stoinis at 6 and Agar at 8 which is about as like for like you can get batting wise, but the drop in bowling is massive between Starc and Agar.

    Is this the first time a selector has been dropped?

    Perhaps Stoinis selection is part of a longer term play to create a super Henriques. Now he knows nothing less than doing a Smith will get him picked.

    Has Mark Waugh been demoted? Good.

    Hohns is still there and has been there for Wade, Mmarsh, Agar and Stoinis. Him, Chappell and Boof doesn't inspire confidence.

    So it's Cummins in for Starc,

    Despite having only one 4 day game in the last 6 years it is no surprise .

    Jimmy Pattinson not quick enough for the task? He gets overlooked all the time these days.

    It's incredible tbh. He's got plenty of ability, I seriously hope he's playing in the side by the time the Ashes roll around.

    Ugh. I knew they wouldn't be able to resist. Pray he doesn't break down.

    Most of that is because he's been breaking down heaps too tbf.

    Still there's evidence that Cummins is a bit of a golden child, they plumped for him when Harris retired in the 2015 Ashes. Granted a lot of that is for good reason....

    The fact that so many books still name the Beatles as "the greatest or most significant or most influential" rock band ever only tells you how far rock music still is from becoming a serious art.
