    Should be great. Looking forward to the tests of course. Hopefully we can put in some better performances. I'm sure our ODI team will be very competitive and perhaps come away with a series win. Halsey will go a long way to securing himself as a permanent fixture in the ODI side while Dauth should impress in his debut series if given the chance IMO...

    Personally I've always done reasonably well against Austraia and hopefully I can continue that.

    Hoping for a shot at the ODI side, given how close I was last time, and that I had another solid season with the bat.

    From the Blues, Liam should be a pushover for both sides, as should Goff, and Cloete in tests. Dinu a fair chance at retaining his spot in the ODI team.

    Interesting looking at those stats, Towns, that Goff has actually been one of the solid performers. Has been unfairly criticised, I'll admit.

    Halsey should make it to the OD team. I'm not sure about my spot though. I have been crap this season.

    there's no question about Goff's batting abilities, it's his captaincy that is under threat.

    Towns has an extremely long tail there...

    But I think Geg has done a great job. His SR this season was out of this world.

    It's not that long. Wright and Thomas aren't too far off each other with their batting ability, so it's not that big a change, either. Hoy is certainly not a tailender, and we all know that Kennett can at least hang around for long periods. Also, I think the batsmen are capable enough to back up their 'tail' - Camps averaging 50 with the bat at #7 says enough for me.
    REMEMBER: A couple of years in therapy, you'll get over it.

    What drugs are you on?
    Both "first team regulars" in Watt and Demeza took just a handful FC wickets less than Thomas this season..... which I might add was more than the 'first team regular' Hancock took.
    I will not make a comparision against Kennett, as he played less games, and I think if he actually played all 16 he would have a handful more wickets than Thomas.

    No you weren't, you were talking about total wickets taken. ie: it is his speciality.
