    Australian news: Stress fracture forces Clint McKay out of World Cup | Australia Cricket News | ESPN Cricinfo

    Clint out as well. Clearing the way for Binga to slide back in, I reckon.

    (and siddle in the squad...)

    Concerning reports coming out that Marsh and Fergusion will both be missing meaning Dussey will be the spare bat.

    Harris
    Mckay
    Ferguson
    Marsh

    Man o man Australia can't afford to many more injuries. Maybe D Hussey, Hodge and Lee will get closer to the team now.

    Marsh and Ferguson aren't injured; they're just not likely to be picked.

    **** David Hussey is an over rated cricketer IMO.

    'rushes through his overs'....too bad he bowls pies. Clarke a much better part time spin option.

    With the selectors looking more and more reluctant to pick the best hitter in Australia atm to bat 7 (Christian) I'm leaning more and more towards either Hodge or Marsh opening the batting with Watto and moving Haddin down. Reckon Smith is genuinely too much a bits and pieces player to be at number 7 in such an important tournament.

    Hodge
    Watson
    Ponting
    Clarke
    White
    Hussey
    Haddin
    Hauritz
    Lee
    Tait/Johnson
    Bollinger
    _______
    Doherty/Smith/O'Keefe

    imo.

    The best way to get people to pump up your bowling as a part-timer is not to bowl much.

    Ref: Katich, Clarke.

    Clarke simply cannot be considered a viable bowler anymore. Far too much risk with his back.

    I've always liked Clarke as a one day bowler. As Noble One pointed out though, he's probably not going to bowl.

    A bits and pieces player at 7 is perfect if you have a world class opening keeper-bat in Haddin. Being able to smash 30(15) at the death and take a wicket or two, not to mention his fielding, is exactly what you want.

    Talk about a jinx. Ferguson has a broken nose now. I would have Marsh in the squad at least tbh.

    I stand by this statement. Finch is a really handy batsman to have in our setup and should have been named in our 30 man squad!

    If M Clarke was to get dropped from the ODI team, I think A Finch would be a very solid replacement.

    Finch is a player Australia will be looking at for the World Cup after this one, but if we had a stack of batting injuries suddenly I'd be much more inclined to call up Voges than Finch of the 2011 WC.

    I would have Hopes and Hodge in my squad, although clearly the selectors are not going to go for either.

    This whole 'building for the future' crap shouldn't apply to selecting a World Cup squad which is where we should be seeing the end product of four years' ODI development; we should be taking away an experienced squad.

    In my view we can only take a maximum of three of Lee, Bollinger, Tait, Johnson. At least one of them has to miss out, most likely Tait.
