    They've even made up an Aus vs Aus-A 4 day game just to give him practice

    If they really wanted to give him practice they could have, like, not banned him for a year

    Hohns: "So we've got to make sure in Australia A we've got players playing who are contenders for the Ashes squad, also have some in there that are potential cover for any injuries that may occur in the World Cup. It's a very interesting exercise."

    I am very interested to see what teams they come up with. Obviously we will know more by April 23 when the World Cup 15 man squad has to be submitted.

    Potential World Cup Squad:
    Finch Warner Khawaja Smith SMarsh Stoinis Maxwell Handscomb Carey Richardson Starc Cummins Zampa Hazlewood Coulter-Nile (Im least certain about NCN).

    My attempt at an Australia A squad:
    Joe Burns, Marcus Harris, Kurtis Patterson, Travis Head, Matthew Wade, Ashton Turner, Cameron Bancroft, Mitch Marsh, Tim Paine, James Pattinson, Peter Siddle, Nathan Lyon, Jason Behrendorff, Billy Stanlake, Jackson Bird.

    EDIT: Will Pucovski unlucky.

    Not sure about Stanlake in the A squad when Qld are picking ****ing Cameron Gannon over him. Also Dorff hasn't played FC for ages.

    Did you read the Hohns quote at the start of my post? I took that to mean the A squad will include guys who just missed out on the WC squad. So having Behrendorff, Stanlake, Turner etc in England is going to happen as opposed to having just the 15 or so next best Test options.

    I wouldn't interpret it as strictly as you have.

    The Cricket Australia website article backs up what NUFAN is saying

    I agree with those selection, with maybe K Richardson replacing Stanlake as WC cover. Holland or O'Keefe coming over with the Aus Squad and shifting teams for the tour match. Labuschagne probably being added to the A squad at some stage, because of course he will

    Australia A are playing 5 50 over matches in England. The first one is on the same day as we play Bangladesh in the World Cup which would be our 6th game. We then have potentially very important matches against England, New Zealand and South Africa while our A team is in England.

    I think (and after reading the CA article) it definitely means that for at least the first portion of the A tour, there will be some ODI squad back ups playing. Not a massive deal, just thought I would point this out.

    My interpretation of what Hohn's has said is that those who just miss out on the WC squad are highly likely to be picked in the A squad.
    Langer has said recently that he thinks there are 19 or 20 players who deserve to be in the WC squad. I take that to be the current 15 plus Smith, Warner, Starc, Hazlewood and maybe D'Arcy Short. Hazlewood is unlikely to be fit enough for the WC squad but maybe given the A tour to prove his fitness for a possible Ashes squad position. So possibly 5 of that 20 will be in the A squad.

    One thing I’ve noticed with you Daniel is your a good judge after the ball has bounced. I’m pretty sure we won the last World Cup. Leave the selecting up to the experts.
