    Squad Tim Paine (capt), Cameron Bancroft, Pat Cummins, Marcus Harris, Josh Hazlewood, Travis Head, Usman Khawaja, Marnus Labuschagne, Nathan Lyon, Mitchell Marsh, Michael Neser, James Pattinson, Peter Siddle, Steven Smith, Mitchell Starc, Matthew Wade, David Warner

    Haha, both Siddle and Neser. No KP.

    M8, pay close attention here for a moment. That was not a sarcastic comment. I thought the fact that I "liked" your post before hand would have made that obvious. I was a big fan of your attitude at first and having a go at the poms was hilarious, but now you're just coming across as being a bit unstable and having a victim complex.

    Is this the first time in history that two incumbent Test bats that scored a century in their last Test were dropped....Burns and K'Pat we remember you

    Wait, they picked 9 batsmen, but K'Pat and Burns aren't good enough...

    Burns deserved to be picked ahead of Labuschagne at least. And Mitch Marsh. Those 2 are the ones who really don't deserve it.

    Mark Waugh having a tizzy over Carey's non selection a highlight.

    Yeah this squad is almost as bullshit as it could possibly be. Dropping two incumbents who are coming off a test century is ridiculous. Not even dropping them from the side butt the entire squad.

    And then picking useless shits like Mitchell Marsh and Cameron Bancroft. The former continuously puts his hand up for selection and flops on the big stage, the second who did exactly the same thing and managed to take down the Australian captain and vice captain in the process.

    The thinking around the national setup is so mixed up, short sighted and nervy it's no wonder we're underperforming as a side. When half the batting line-up are dropped from the test squad after scoring hundreds because a guy shows a small but of county form you get these ridiculous situations where we end up churning and burning our players.

    I don't even think he's much good but I sure as hell hope Harris plays over Bancroft.

    And don't even get me started on Siddle over Bird. Ridiculous.

    Salvaging the squad XI:

    Harris
    Warner
    Khawaja
    Smith
    Head
    Wade
    Paine
    Pattinson
    Cummins
    Hazelwood
    Lyon

    Good to see they found room in the squad for both Siddle and his massive Aorta. #GreatAustralian.

    MMarsh again. Fmd. Itís like when youíve tried to jump start your car 85 times but you think youíll give it one more crack before you decide to replace the battery. A selection which is the epitome of stupidity.

    Harris is redundant, will do no better than Bancroft while not being as versatile as Burns, Siddle is bullshit and symptomatic of the 'pick-and-stick' theory's ultimate conclusion, that you keep recycling has-beens and failures because you never tried anyone else to see how they went (plus Bird was just... better) but Mitchell Marsh is the most bullshit of all. 31 tests for a batting average of 25, a bowling average of 44 (with endless breakdowns). FMD, the only top ten sides he'd get into as an allrounder or batsman are Sri Lanka (maybe) and Zimbabwe.

    Assuming they're picking Neser as an all rounder and not a bowler.

    Marsh is the worst selection of the lot. He's completely superfluous to our needs. Our weakness is batting, not bowling and he can't strengthen that unless he bats at 8 and bowls 25 overs a day (not going to happen).

    Siddle over Bird is bad but not disastrous. At least Siddle will at worst be a change bowler. Feel for Bird who is easily test quality.

    Wade over Carey as backup keeper is fine. Hopefully he'll never be needed.

    Can't believe they sent Patterson and Burns home. Utterly unbelievable that they're going but proven test failures Harris, Bancroft and Labaschagne are still there. Handscomb can rightly feel annoyed that he's not there ahead of them, given he's a better batsman when playing for Victoria than Harris.

    Just all round terrible to drop Burns and Patterson. Neser and Marsh are ****ing pointless selections.
