Burgey

Ridiculously titled the "Haddin XI v Hick XI", presumably one side will try to bomb someone over long off with the score at 5/18 while the other will never reach its potential, but look a million bucks doing so.

Haddin definitely the more likely to succeed as Hick has to face a four-pronged pace attack of Cummins, Starc, Hazlewood and Siddle (should bring back some West Indies memories)

Hick XII: Joe Burns, Cameron Bancroft, Steve Smith, Peter Handscomb, Matthew Wade, Mitchell Marsh, Tim Paine (c, wk), Michael Neser, James Pattinson, Jackson Bird, Chris Tremain, Nathan Lyon

Haddin XII: David Warner, Marcus Harris, Kurtis Patterson, Travis Head (c), Marnus Labuschagne, Will Pucovski, Alex Carey (wk), Pat Cummins, Mitch Starc, Peter Siddle, Josh Hazlewood, Jon Holland.

Who do you think is the most likely to be omitted with a failure in this game?

Has to be Wade. Performs everywhere in every format over the last 12 months but will be omitted without a 2nd thought if he fails here, meanwhile Labuschagne and Marsh will get selected with a 30 and 1 wkt here

Oh, Burns as well, will be goneski if Harris outscores him (even by 5 runs).

Okay, Paine won the toss and decided to bowl, so it starts with Pattinson to Warner and Harris. Hoping for some Pattinson magic :)

Edit: scratch that, they opened with Neser

And Neser get Warner for 4. Labuschagne coming in at 3 instead of Petterson is interesting (probably to break up the left handers)

Now it's really become interesting with Head out to Bird for 1.

I predict Pucovski to go big
