I'll take Cameron White since he seems to be the only leggie there.
Will Quinn's the name.
ITSTL, good concept.
I'll take Nick Jewell.

LEECA! Lock it in, Eddie.
Stedders' Supported XI
Tamim Iqbal, DA Warner, CA Lynn, *MEK Hussey, Shakib Al Hasan, JP Faulkner, +Mushfiqur Rahim, AC Agar, Mashrafe Mortaza, Taskin Ahmed, JP Behrendorff.
RIP Fardin. RIP Craigos. RIP Prince.
Are the sides going to be selected on a rotational basis or by who is in form?
If the latter, make sure anyone who isn't playing in the First XI gets a go in all the tour matches.
The primary aim as I said in the OP is to win. I want the best XI in the side. Again though, most if not all players with a really high skill level are not available, making us all on a really even skill level.
In other words, expect a lot of shuffling around while we figure out who will be representing Australia/Nixonia.
There will of course also be a weighting to people who are active in the thread.

New look Australia's first stop - England

Australia win the toss and bat.
Happy to do a live sim btw. Let me know if you're interested. nnanden_6 @ hotmail dot com
Australia's struggle commences
Australia's toothless bowling has lead to their first defeat as a reformed side. Mawk, McDonald, Quinn and Patrick fought hard, but when Greg Thomas dropped Mongia off the bowling of Patrick early on, the game was as good as over.
Coach's Call -
"Pretty horrible start that. The deck was pretty slow and hard to get in on. Our bowlers really should've done better. McNamara, Smith and Somerset were pretty damn hopeless. Reddapalli kept really well and we'll fix up his first name. Next match is a 20/20 against the Poms. Expect some changes."

when you're winning, you have friends
scores and dozens, real friends
when you're winning, never lonely
when you keep winning
Changes ring for 20/20
Just like a typical Australian side, players have been rotated for the hit and giggle against the Poms. I mean, what could possibly go wrong?
