aussie one day squad

International Captain
James Hopes Cricket Australia’s National Selection Panel (NSP) has today announced 12-man squads for Australia’s opening two matches of the Commonwealth Bank Series against Pakistan.

The squads are:

Australia v Pakistan, Gabba, 22 January
Ricky Ponting (c) TAS
Michael Clarke (vc) NSW
Doug Bollinger NSW
Brad Haddin NSW
Nathan Hauritz NSW
James Hopes QLD
Mike Hussey WA
Shaun Marsh WA
Clint McKay VIC
Peter Siddle VIC
Shane Watson NSW
Cameron White VIC

Australia v Pakistan, Sydney, 24 January
Ricky Ponting (c) TAS
Michael Clarke (vc) NSW
Doug Bollinger NSW
Brad Haddin NSW
Nathan Hauritz NSW
Mike Hussey WA
Shaun Marsh WA
Clint McKay VIC
Peter Siddle VIC
Adam Voges WA
Shane Watson NSW
Cameron White VIC

NSP Chairman Andrew Hilditch said:

“The NSP has rewarded those players who have performed so well for Australia in one-day international cricket over the last six months. This period has included impressive series wins in England and India, as well as an ICC Champions Trophy victory in South Africa. This summer’s Commonwealth Bank Series against Pakistan and West Indies is a chance for the team to continue that form as we move towards the ICC World Cup in 12 months’ time.”

“The squads for the first two matches of the Commonwealth Bank Series against Pakistan have been selected to ensure that as many players are available for the KFC Twenty Big Bash Preliminary Final on 19 January and Final on 23 January, whilst not compromising the performance and preparation of the Australian team.

“As a result, the NSP has selected a different squad for both games to try and provide the best possible coverage for the start of the Commonwealth Bank Series, with squads of 12 players chosen for these two matches.

“Mitchell Johnson is having his workload managed for the first three matches of the Commonwealth Bank Series and will rejoin the squad in time for the two ODIs against Pakistan in Perth.

“James Hopes has been selected for the Brisbane match with Adam Voges replacing him for Sydney. This selection has been made with a view to ensuring we have flexibility within the squad of 12 players to accommodate the different conditions at each venue.

With Johnson being rested, Lee injured & Bracken now returning from injury. It would have been good to give Nannes a go in the ODI team, unfortunately it seems as if he still seen as a T20 specialist.

But then again i guess Nannes himself has just returned from injury..

He has represented Netherlands already. I dont think he is eligible now for a certain no. of years.

He actually played for Australia in a T20 game a few months back. The 4 year waiting period doesn't happen for Associates.

EDIT: Dammit aussie

Looking forward to seeing what Mackay can do. Interesting that they are resting Johnson and not Watson. I reakon Johnson bowls better and better the more cricket he plays, from memory he has taken a game or 2 to get back into it after being rested in the past.

Perhaps Watson is going to rest from bowling in the first match, and that's why Hopes is in there.

From what I can tell from reading that article, the only reason Hopes isn't there for the second game is to ensure he can play the Big Bash final the day before if Queensland make it. It does seem odd though because Voges is his replacement and WA can make the final as well...

I don't think that's really the case, I just think that the squad is only 12 and not say 14 because of the Big Bash.

Could have even gone Tait, hes in form and we may as well get him while hes hot. Plus he adds pace and takes out the need for Siddle.

Would be a terrible decision. Yes he has shown form, but only a couple of T20 games. His fitness is still terrible, I very much doubt he could bowl ten decent overs at ODI level.

Not really. Some of you here have stereotyped me as a "Nannes fan" though.

I'm just as i always say disappointed that he is been seen as a T20 specialist only. Clearly he is good enough to be involved in all 3 formats even if its last for a year or two only given his age.

Nah, you are. If you rate someone more highly than the rest of the population and think he should be picked for higher honours, then you're a fan. Nothing wrong with that of course but it's true.
Nah, don't agree. You might support a player's abilities but not necessarily be a fan of his. For instance, I might think x is an excellent batsman but may not be in the fan bracket.

I think you become a fan when it's evident you think x is a much better batsman than most other people seem to.
