Eyes not spreadsheets
As expected, no Steve Waugh, but Hogg in preference to Hauritz and Symonds ahead of Blewett surprise me!
probably Ponting. I reckon its a good choice if because they'll gain more by having a backup batsmen in Maher than a backup keeper in Campbell/Haddin.Rik said:Hang on...I just noticed that they picked 2 Keepers in the Provisional 30...and picked neither for the World Cup 15...who's the backup keeper? Langer could have been but he wasn't picked either...I knew something was missing...
Its a delema they face because there are soo many good players in the domestic set up who have been pusing there case for so long.chris.hinton said:The Aussies seem to not pick youngsters in the fifth test they pick Williams and not Rofe surely they should give a chance to some younger players
Yeah but picking Williams is quite odd, he hasn't really stood up and made people notice this season. Bracken or Noffke really should have been picked.Eclipse said:Its a delema they face because there are soo many good players in the domestic set up who have been pusing there case for so long.
For example its hard to say no to say somone like Maher and just give somone like Cark a go after one good season.
It hasn't hurt them of late, has it?chris.hinton said:The Aussies seem to not pick youngsters in the fifth test they pick Williams and not Rofe surely they should give a chance to some younger players
vishnureddy said:Maybe you are talking about me. I still think Blewett is a better bowler than Watson at the moment atleast in International cricket and he is bowling regularly this season. Watson bowls most of the time when the other side is in big trouble and playing to survive the 50 overs and still he goes at 5 an over. I still don't know why Harvey was dropped when he just beginning to bowl well in International Cricket. My order of allrounders of AUS will be Harvey,Symonds,Blewett and Watson.
