    Australian test selection 2019-2020

    Time for this I guess. This could be moved into CC after the Ashes maybe.

    Don't think I can remember a time when so many spots were questionable/up for grabs/no idea who the selectors will pick.

    What I'd like to see (assuming Khawaja is fit):

    Khawaja
    Warner
    Smith
    Patterson
    Pukovski
    Wade
    Paine +
    Pattinson
    Starc
    Cummins
    Lyon


    What I think the selectors will do:

    Bancroft
    Warner
    Khawaja
    Smith
    Head/Labuschagne
    M.Marsh
    Paine
    Starc
    Cummins
    Hazelwood
    Lyon


    I get that Pukovski probably shouldn't be thrown into the team here, but I rate the kid that highly.

    Khawaja is not good enough to just auto walk back into the side. Cummins + Patto have to play and I think Labuschagne over Head.

    Personally I absolutely loathe this line of thinking. All this "next big thing" hype is doing nothing but putting undue pressure on his shoulders. Never been a fan of picking batsman with very little FC experience, would much rather rely on tried and tested options in the Ashes, throwing Pucovski in the deep end is really a risk not worth taking.

    He absolutely is good enough to walk back into this side, and I don't even rate him.

    Perhaps I missed Khawaja’s incredible away record and the fact that he’s 100% match fit. Whoops, silly me! Then again, I forgot opinions are banned here.

    He’s good enough to walk into this side because he’s a test class batsman in a side which only has two others.

    You can have as many opinions as you like. Just think that particular one is uneducated.

    You need better opinions. Maybe they sell them at Northland.

    Maybe I am wrong - but you don’t need to be like that. Is that what you do all day in your sad little life? Be a dick to new members who have different views to you? Are you Piers Morgan?

    Dude I've fed you mostly compliments. I asked you to post more and liked most of your posts. I make one joke about an opinion you have and all of a sudden I'm being "a dick to new members" and have a "sad little life"?

    I don't think I'm the one coming across as having issues here tbf

    Won't be a member for long with an attitude like this.

    You know as well as I that was a sarcastic comment. Saying ‘Francis pls post more’. Jokes are when two people laugh, if you don’t like or agree with what I say, great. That’s why I joined - for differences of opinion. New members should feel welcome instead of abused or needlessly provoked.
