    Why couldn't we have Ponting as our coach

    Agree with Ponting here, though objectively it is good to see Victorians getting screwed over in general. That's what makes Siddle's recall so much harder to take.

    I'd take Victorians in our team over Western Australians and Queenslanders any day.

    Good to see me and Ponting having the same opinion.

    Potential to do an adequate job at test level for a reasonable amount of time: Uzi, Lyon, Renshaw & Starc

    Jury is out on Agar but I suspect that we'll see continued improvement as he's undoubtedly talented and relatively young

    Have to dramatically improve on career performances at either fc or test level: MMarsh, Head & Finch

    Totally unproven at basically any level: Doggett, Neser & Labu

    Making up the numbers are Paine, Siddle, Holland (might be unfair but I suspect that Agar will generally be preferred) & SMarsh

    Good times

    Fortunately, the team can be readily improved with the return of Smith, Cummins & Haze but it wouldn't surprise me if Warner has had his cards marked

    Desperately need a wk/batsman and a captain worth his place in the team to come through plus continued development of guys like Doran

    A selection panel with a ****ing clue would be handy as well

    I can't stomach ****ing Tim Paine as captain of the test side. He should be in ****ing park cricket.

    Not too unpleasant odds on Marsh becoming the next captain before Smith and Warner return imo.

    The trouble with Marsh is his lack of performances

    Averaging 27 is simply not acceptable when you're not really contributing anything with the ball

    I'll be interested to see how MMarsh goes when not batting against a toothless attack on near-perfect batting pitches.

    I'm not optimistic on MMarsh, tend to think his Ashes success was as much down to the toothless English attack than his own batting. Broad was especially insipid in Perth, more pies than a bakery

    I think Uzi should be next in line for the captaincy. After all he's done well as Queensland's captain and is the closest we have to a certain pick.

    Yeah.Fair. But on the other hand he'll have to start showing he can play spin. Otherwise he's not a certain choice.

    I actually think he'll do OK here. UAE pitches aren't that bowler-friendly and he's fared OK in Asia before.

    England will be a huge stretch though. Shame about the timing of his injury, a season in county cricket could've worked wonders for him.
