No bigger fan of the Aussie cricket team in the world than me !!

The all-rounder tag scares me. If we only get a top 6 test batter out of Greenie i will be more than happy

Young gun Cameron Green stars for Western Australia with unbeaten ton

Agar will be a major pain point going into the world cup..not a great bowler, not a great batsman. Replace him with Maxi , Wade by Wells/Cooper and we’ll have a chance

Ashton Agar and Adam Zampa are driving Australia's T20I resurgence

Finch in , Fraser-Mcgurk out 😱

Pucovski, Maddinson recalled for Sheffield Shield

In the long run Head , Pucovski and Patterson should be fighting for 2 places when Wade is gone.

Sad that Pucovski opted out – I can see him and Marnus forming a long-term backbone of the batting unit

Burns, Head and Neser deserved their Test call ups

Many reporting that Puckovski is in the 12 for Gabba !! Would be wonderful that. Hoping he succeeds so that he and Marnus would form the long term backbone of the team

Australian Test candidates flop against Pakistan

Eighteen months in: How is Justin Langer really going?

i can think/rethink what i want .. no need of your advice. Langer is the subject of discussion here not me – so keep the discussion to him

Eighteen months in: How is Justin Langer really going?

Forgot to add i never thought he was a legitimate choice in the first place. Legend of a player but as a coach ? i doubt

Eighteen months in: How is Justin Langer really going?

He has not formed the base for a new batting order – my biggest complaint. Far too long been circling around SMarsh , MMarsh and Khawaja , Wade.

Sometimes you just need to hit the reboot button and then stick with it.

Eighteen months in: How is Justin Langer really going?

“Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, James Pattinson and Jhye Richardson”

Add a certain Riley Meredith to that list – fast and wicket-taking

Should Cricket Australia adopt the seven 'P’s instead of a bowling rotation policy?

If Smith and Warner are back , Harris Burns Patterson and Head should be the other 4 batsmen

Unfortunately Khawaja misses out but thats the correct decision imo currently

Renshaw and Patterson playing for Ashes spots in Sheffield Shield

Would make only 1 change to that 11 Chris (which I feel will come as it is by the 3rd Test)

Warner
Harris
Burns
Smith
Head
Patterson
Paine
Cummins
Starc
Lyon
Hazlewood / Richardson

Think the 4 to 8 in Smith , Head , Patterson , Paine and Cummins look much much better than the teams of recent past to absorb the shocks of early wickets and rebuild the innings

Four frantic rounds to book your ticket to England

Is there a chance to change the squad now ? If Renshaw is going to bat middle order we might as well play a proper middle-order batter in Patterson

Patterson ton versus Sri Lanka upstages Test rivals

My ideal batting group though

Warner
Harris
Burns
Smith
Patterson
Head
Labuschagne

Pick them and give them 10 tests

VOTE: Pick your Australian XI to play Sri Lanka

Look at the batting pool

Warner , Khawaja, Harris , Head , SMarsh , Renshaw

Smith , Burns , Labuschagne , Handscomb , Maxwell

First 6 lefties , next 5 righties .. if you have to pick 8 batsmen( there is no all-rounder currently in Australia) – i would leave out Marsh and Renshaw 🙁 from the lefties and Handscomb from righties

VOTE: Pick your Australian XI to play Sri Lanka

James i think Head has also done reasonably ok given the circumstances. Marnus has looked ok in all his innings so far (except his first).One big score -100+ by any of these newcomers would have set this team on its way .. too bad that so many starts were wasted collectively

Aussie team battling internal enemies

Can be given benefit of doubt since he is only in his first season. Though his appointment as such typifies the selections and decisions of the Sutherland era. Scary when one and only one person is considered for the job overlooking others completely

Aussie team battling internal enemies

I predict that in a couple of years Khawaja would be the new Shaun Marsh – someone we will be wondering how he is keeping his spot inspite of non-performance !!! lol

Khawaja has failed Australia when they needed him most

Said this already here – https://www.theroar.com.au/2018/11/29/why-australia-needs-some-new-selectors/
Right from the end of the domination era to now , the selectors have been in bad form. Right from Hohns to Hilditch to Inverarity to Hohns again – if we can solve this 1 puzzle the team will start performing much better

Another Test selection embarrassment after Australia's Melbourne meltdown

#Flintoff05 still haunts these selectors !!

If Finch’s finger is not right , i would say go for Geoff Marsh to open with Harris. lol

Marsh in, Handscomb out of Boxing Day Test

Tremain should be the next cab in the bowling ranks surely. What speeds is he bowling this season any idea ?

It is also time for Jhye Richardson , Matthew Kelly , Gabe Bell and Biy Stanlake to feature regularly in and around the squad. Else again we will be left in a situation like there was nobody to replace McGrath , Gillespie , Lee and Warne

Where is Doggett btw ?

Mitchell Starc must be dropped for the second Test against India

Finch
Harris
Head
Khawaja
SMarsh
Handscomb
Cummins
Paine
Starc
Lyon
Haz

Batting order for me for Adelaide

India face unprecedented pressure in Australia

Anyways with the current selection of the current selectors :

Harris
Finch
Head
Khawaja
SMarsh
Handscomb
Cummins
Paine
Starc
Lyon
Hoff

will be my batting order for Adelaide

When does Chapell’s contract end ? Read somewhere Hohns is in till Feb 2020

Why Australia needs some new selectors

The overhaul will be complete with selectors and Graham Hick being given a farewell !!!

Why Australia needs some new selectors

Agree with you PJ .. pick and stick for reasonable amount of time
