    Finch should be captain. In all formats.

    Only good thing CA have done was picking him. He better ****ing play.

    Just can't fathom their actions at all. First the Smith/Warner bans, then this Maxwell non-selection, it's like they're trying to kill cricket in Australia. Leave out the most popular (and one of the best) player isagreat way to alienate your audience. Wouldn't surprise me if they'd been secretly infiltrated by Baseball Australia or some competitor for cricket to run it into the ground.

    Speaking of which, the programming overhaul for cricket on tv couldn't come at a worse time. The ratings with everything moved and split between Fox and 7 will be interesting.

    I think it's fairly obvious. They're trying to pick the worst team possible for a flogging. The public will be crying out for Warner and Smith to be returned

    I still can't believe the Australian selectors think Siddle, Neser and Doggett are better options than Tremain and Richardson. Like what the hell. And that's not even talking about leaving our best available batsman at home.

    I can see the explanation already though - 'We're building a team for the future', 'Can't be chopping and changing every week' etc etc

    It's lose lose

    The continuing revelations of Maxwell's mistreatment are getting pretty tatty and showing the selectors up as deceitful and exploitative. Cricinfo says Maxwell was asked to forgo a county contract to rest up for the A tour. Then he was told he doesn't need to go on the A tour because he's a known quantity on those wickets. Then he was left out of the test squad because he supposedly doesn't make big scores consistently enough only to be overlooked for men with worse century to matches conversion rates. Langer and the selectors haven't just made an ordinary shocking decision. It looks like they were setting Maxwell up to fail. On top of the unjust penalties handed out to the sandpaper 3, CA's admin are doing great harm to Australian cricket.

    Heard a bit of Langer’s interview this morning; seems to be putting great weight on centuries scored in all forms of cricket which seemed to mean that the success Finch has had in ODIs/T20s in scoring tons compared with Maxwell (who has a much more difficult time trying to do that where he bats) was pretty decisive.

    Must have missed Maxwell's T20 ton last season against . . . whoever it was . . . NZ? I think it was at Hobart, or Adelaide. Ok I guess I've forgotten it as well. But I remember he brought it up with a slog over mid-wicket to win the game.

    Has batted 18 times in the top 3 out of 133 matches

    More often than not, he's asked to be a slogger and gets criticised for doing just that

    This is sounding worse and worse with everything I read, does this selection panel have any credibility at all?
