Australian test selection 2020/21

Flem274*

123/5
has patterson had a decent hit recently? someone end the wade thing already. patterson is obviously better and i think i've seen him like twice.

where does the wonderkid pucovski like to bat btw? is he actually an opener or are you guys just pushing him there because burns exists?

Yeah Patto's form this season has been terrible, alas. The injuries haven't helped either but I think he's blown his chance.

Pucovski was opening in his most recent Shield matches where he scored back-to-back double centuries. He wasn't an opener before this season but even then he was generally batting 3 for Victoria, he's a specialist Top 3 bat AFAIK.

He's had a few decent hits, just been unlucky with injury, has had a few bad runs of form since he got dropped from the test team and keeps getting injured when he's looking back to his best. Also what has wade realistically done wrong? Hit 2 hundreds in an away ashes where none aside from smith and marnus could put bat on the ball and averaged 40 last summer.

Burns is vulnerable and I think he'll get two tests before we see Pucocski replace him (if he doesn't score).

It's nice to finally have some non **** domestic batsmen knocking on the door.

Has wade done enough in the past year and a bit to secure his spot in the test team? I know everyone is talking about pucovski the opener but if burns and puc both show up for aus A and make some runs how likely is it that we see in the first test?
1.Warner
2.Burns
3.Labs
4.TPC
5.Concrete feet
6.Puc

Waugh as captain instead of TOTAB is the truly controversial selection there
Arguably Waugh would be the better captain in this side because he had the stronger team in real life. AB had rubbish to work with and turned them to diamonds. Waugh took those diamonds and landed a supermodel with them. This side is starting with diamonds.
