    Not at all arrogant a view that there...
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Not seriously has that ever been mentioned over here.

    If people are missing it'll be owing to the fact they're injured.

    I read a report where a former player proposed the idea. I just don't think it's fair to say it is an arrogant comment (and IMO is not a remark that is necessary). I don't think social was implying that Australia would win the comp without the test players. Although it would never happen because country cricket boards are expected to select the best players available for every tournament they are involved in, it isn't that bad of an idea. I dobut Australia nor England would send a 2nd string side.

    i though he was doing a bit better thats why i mentioned him, thats why i mentioned him.

    He had a reasonable first class season (flash in the pan kind of stuff). However, he's never done much of anything in the one day game, except a few good run outs.

    I wasnt implying that Aus would win (given how they've treated Champions Trophy tourneys before, theyre at long odds no matter who they send) but that it's ludicrous to send your top players to the delibilitating heat of India for a meaningless tourney before the start of a packed season.

    Let's face it, it wasnt long ago that the hosts themselves were considering pulling out.

    So Flintoff, Jones, etc are fit enough to bowl 20 - 30 overs a day by the seaside in OZ grade cricket but not fit enough to bowl 10 overs in India?

    Wasn't there a report on Cricinfo that Flintoff won't be playing any club cricket in Sydney?

    Yeah, the club cricket thing has been pulled. Just a massive overreaction to a suggestion by Graveney (sp), that's all.

    They wouldn't be bowling that many overs.

    There's a difference between being fit enough to bowl in grade cricket and International match fit.

    Granted, there's a huge difference.

    However, if paid, they would be expected to bowl a huge no. of overs.

    Unlike county cricket, it's not a retirement home

    With Australia's 18-man squad having to be trimmed to 14 before the start, which 4 will be cut?

    I'm thinking the following ten will definitely play:

    Ricky Ponting (capt)
    Andrew Symonds
    Michael Hussey (vc)
    Michael Clarke
    Shane Watson
    Brad Haddin (wk)
    Brett Lee
    Brad Hogg
    Nathan Bracken
    Glenn McGrath

    Which leaves 4 to be cut from the following:

    Damien Martyn
    Matthew Hayden
    Simon Katich
    Mark Cosgrove
    Phil Jaques
    Daniel Cullen
    Mitchell Johnson
    Stuart Clark
