As Centurymaker showed it is hard to cover all bases in a squad of 16.
And even with all the combination he posted of 17 players if 2 spinners get injured you are screwed.
No, you just have to suck it up and pick the best you've got.
Australia didn't moan to the ICC during the Ashes when they were left with no decent spinners.
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!

Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
Australia have no decent spinners.
But i am sure if any team was going to go on a 30 test match tour they would pick a squad bigger than 16.

Yeah, surely trades should just be for between seasons?
I've consciously picked a few batsmen who can bowl a bit of spin, as well as players like Flintoff, Colly, Rashid to cover different eventualities as I assumed all along we would have injuries.
Well technically this is "in between" seasons as we haven't started yet. I'm not completely decided either way, although I agree that in-season trading is a no.
Can I suggest that we refuse to do anything Prince **** suggests?
The morale thing is stupid and I'm resetting that, but is the form that comes from ratings etc reasonable?
