    Good decision really, gives Cullen a chance to show what he can do on possibly some helpful conditions. This is probably his last chance of international cricket for a little while, atleast until Hogg or Warne retires so he should really make the most of it.

    Meh...Cullen is not a very good bowler. If he gets a game I will be surprised, I'll be even more surprised if he does well.

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

    I think he is a decent long term prospect but it is a waste of time taking him to India. They should have picked Hayden or Jaques to keep the heat on Katich, the opening position is about the only debatable one left to fill for the WC.

    It's simple. He struggles to take wickets, why is he even in the Australian frame? It is ridiculous.

    Yeah, pretty much completely agreed.

    The way people go out of their way to support these young guys just because they are young borders on ridiculous. Good to know there are some out there who still value players on their performances and not their age.

    So all of last season when he wasn't getting wickets against the top order and had to wait until about his 30th over and then took cheap tailend wickets he was bowling without luck?

    I would have preffered if they took a development player like moises henriques.

    No offense to Moises Henriques but I know that Australia do really want to win the Champions Trophy and by taking somebody like Henriques they would be weakening their chances. This is not the time to blood an Under 19 player at International level, they need to pick a player who could really perform for them and not someone as untested as Henriques.

    James Hopes or Cameron could have been called up instead.

    make it three here, i hope he comes good and i'm sure you do as well since when Warne, MacGill & Hogg goes Australia's spin resources will be very limitied at both levels of the game.

    TBH looking at Cullen bowl he doesn't look too much better than Nathan Hauritz who everyone seems to think was crap.

    He definately seem to be a young prodigy in the making but unlike some of the Asian countries especially Australia wont normally expose such players that early.

    If he has good season this year & next I expect to see Henriques pretty close to international selection by the end of 2007.
