We are massive fans of cricket and love making dream teams. We also love challenging each other to see who can make the best team. Barry is more of an expert on test cricket and Australian and English domestic leagues whereas Zac is more of an expert on cricket in Asia and Africa.

I don’t, it is just some of the opinions are pretty rough and i am defending myself and the team that i have selected

Ask barry mate

Lyon is the best spinner in the world ATM

Fawad recently retired so therefore is out of consideration, thank you for being at least half positive

FAULKNER is trash

IPL, sure a T20 comp is what you base him on, what happened to when he was the best thing ever in the tri series hazlewood is the frontline bowler in our side

he is getting on in years and will not be a permanent option o]for the crucial number 3 spot

I have, they only score at around 100 s/r

Australia's ideal ODI squad

he is not a frontline bowler, he is jostling for a spot in the starting XI

We said we were being bias to young players because we are trying to give them some experience leading up to the 2019 WC

Australia's ideal ODI squad

Yeah but we couldnt think of a backup allrounder that can bowl pace

Australia's ideal ODI squad

Carey is much better with the bat and is the obvious choice because having our keeper at 7 is not working

Khawaja never showed that much form there are better, younger openers and middle order batsmen out there

Australia's ideal ODI squad

A few bad overs… here are their stats: Starc (4 matches) has no maidens 7 wickets for 256 runs and Cummins has slightly better figures of (3 matches) 7 wickets for 154 runs with 3 maidens

This is an ODI side, you are not gonna be 0 for 60 very often at all, that is plain suicide even in T20 you rarely lose 0 wickets in the powerplay, if you overpitch or bowl short to Hughes he puts it away for 4

That is because of the selectors not choosing batsmen that contribute to the balance, all our bats either hit out or get out. I am also a Vic so why would i be biased to NSW with my selections?

Australia's ideal ODI squad

And who would you suggest to go in place of them mate

Australia's ideal ODI squad

Fit but not firing, in case you didnt watch the 5 match ODI series against England. Starc and Cummins allowed Buttler to score a ton in 10 overs

Australia's ideal ODI squad

Yeah because he only has the best ever career batting figures in List A for an Aussie batsman, better than Bevan who is second best

Australia's ideal ODI squad

Dont ask me, Barry just ripped into me about giving him better picks. He had his heart set on cook and paine

Sorry my side wasnt up to your standards but in case you havent noticed anything over 35 is pretty much the equivalent of 40-45 in Australia, Monimul was considered but lacks experience, Jadeja is batting at 7 and 8 in the ROW so his average doesnt really matter.

I dropped Shah for the ROW, and brought in Mathews, Ashwin is highly overrated in my opinion, all he does is clean up tails and maybe one top order batsman.

Also in case you didnt read my paragraph introducing my team, I hate leaving Shakib out but Jadeja is just harder to face so his bowling makes up for his batting
