I just hope Faulkner is playing, he usually brings the lulzI wish our blokes were back here preparing for the home season tbh. Different if it was another test series but cramming an ODI series in at this time of year isn't something I'm a fan of. I hope they leave out pretty much any bowler who's in contention for a home test place. I know that sort of thinking cheapens the series, but it's just the timing I don't like ahead of the home summer.
Aus/India series usually see some pretty strong sides, which I'm guessing is more of a money thing than a "they actually care about winning the series" thingI hope we get two second XIs playing
Nothing more amusing than millions of people tuning in to watch cricket featuring Scott Boland bowling to Manish Pandey
lmao don't forget South AfricaAus/India series usually see some pretty strong sides, which I'm guessing is more of a money thing than a "they actually care about winning the series" thing
It's usually series against minnows eg. Zim/Ban/WI/SL or NZ where they send 2nd XIs
But he's in the squad?ODI squad: Steven Smith (capt), David Warner, Ashton Agar, Hilton Cartwright, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Patrick Cummins, James Faulkner, Aaron Finch, Josh Hazlewood, Travis Head, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Matthew Wade (wk), Adam Zampa
T20 squad: Steven Smith (capt), David Warner (vice-capt), Jason Behrendorff, Dan Christian, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Patrick Cummins, Aaron Finch, Travis Head, Moises Henriques, Glenn Maxwell, Tim Paine (wk), Kane Richardson, Adam Zampa
That seems fine to me. Obviously Haze is out, no Cummins is the main (good) one.
