    Did it start out like the XI you posted and finish up like Burgeys? I know Stoinis record has been horrible, but when he is up against MMarsh..

    I don't follow Warne on Twitter so I never actually saw the Burgey version. I just got sent the version I posted. I suspect he may have made a few chances as the criticisms came in though.

    I don't think anything that happens in the UAE will affect selections for the next home test. The marshes are locks till they repeatedly fail at home in prime viewing. Only Head and Marnus are vulnerable to a shield bat piling up runs. Which still won't help Renshaw. They can still say he's a specialist and have him wait behind Uzi and Arun. Expecting mega flat decks to make our batting look better, as usual.

    Iíve got a real issue with Finch opening at home, even against India. But I do think he should be in the side atm. Given I also want Khawaja at three, we need two openers. One is Renshaw but the other is problematic tstl.

    Renshaw
    ?
    Khawaja
    Head (also problematic imo but as worthy of a spot after the first test as most going around atm)
    Finch
    Maxwell
    Paine
    Cummins
    Starc
    Lyon
    Haze

    is probably the best I can come up with. I think Stoinisí bowling is trashier than either of the other all rounders and iirc his FC stats are even worse than theirs.

    Finch and Maxwell at five and six could do some serious damage at home.

    The other option is someone like Ferguson or whoever has a big Shield start to the season bats four in place of Head. But I suspect Maxwell wonít get a game and MMarsh will bat six

    Yeah I think Burns as well, primarily given he was the incumbent and top scored last innings he played, but itís really going to come down to who scores heavy in the Shield. Be a good time for Dan Hughes to start scoring big tons.

    Smarsh last 10 innings
    4, 3, 0, 7, 7, 16, 0, 26, 1, 24

    No 30's in there so must be dropped under new 30 policy

    I don't see any issue with Finch opening in Aus. Maybe in England I wouldn't feel confident.

    Burns deserves a shot in the team. Is Head, Finch, Maxwell the best order for them?

    Apart from the captaincy selection Warney's XI is actually sensible. Presuming Maxie's absence from this round of the shield isn't related to injury the odds of him making the side are even longer. If you want Finch down the order then I think you're looking for a no.3 as Usman would stay opener with Renshaw. Given the bowlers are a lock if fit the top 7 could either be Usman, Renshaw, Ferguson, Finch, Head, Stoinis, Paine or Finch, Renshaw, Usman, Ferguson, Head, Stoinis, Paine.

    You'd be a pretty wary buyer of Stoinis but if M Marsh can't bowl the overs required then he's preferred. Besides he doesn't bring any more technical deficiencies with the bat. If Ferguson doesn't take his chance would be looking for Lehmann instead. Anyway I'd like to lock in Renshaw, Usman, Finch, Head and Paine for the top 7 which means Stoinis and Ferguson will be competing with Lehmann, Hughes, Weatherald and Burns for the other two spots.

    EDIT. I guess I can't rule out M Marsh or Labuschagne but not consider S Marsh.

    I pray Lehmann doesn't get a debut before he learns he can use his feet against pace.
