Some people are just biased. It doesn’t matter how much runs Lab and Burns score,they will keep decrying their contributions.

I remember everyone devaluing Lab’s efforts in county cricket for Glamorgan citing it was in divison 2. Then when he performed against Archer,Broad and co in English condition,they were pointing out to his moderate shield average and basically called his efforts a fluke.Now he dominated this domestic season and has just scored 185,they will devalue this effort by saying it’s against a weak Pakistan attack. Three quicks bowling 140 plus and a high class spinner becomes a weak attack to them!!!

Burns must finally be respected by Test selectors

I think Paine’s captaincy and some bad bowling also contributed to that. And Stokes is no saint either. He sledges others profusingly as well. His sledging directed to Samuels during the 2016 t20 wc final is well documented.
Re pattinson;this is his third breach of conduct within last six shield matches.Hence he has been punished.Rules are there for a reason,mate. Pattinson has been punished for his own behaviour,it has nothing to do with Warner.

'Doesn't sit with our values': Tim Paine on James Pattinson's Shield breach

Not surprised at all.He has always been a dumb head. One more minor breach of conduct within next 10 months,he will be out for 6 tests or 12 limited overs matches or combination of those.

Pattinson suspended from first Test following 'serious slur'

Very strange,isn’t it?

Burns, Head and Neser deserved their Test call ups

I did Jeff.How can you compare him to Bancroft? Players should be picked on recent form but that doesn’t mean the latest match only. Burns is averaging 40 compared to Bancroft’s 11 in this shield season. Burns played most of his games at the Gabba which is arguably the trickiest pitch right now in Australia( along Hobart )where the first test is going to be played.

Burns is street ahead of Bancroft. some meaningless stats doesn’t change that.But if Bancroft can improve his technique,he has a future in test cricket.

Burns, Head and Neser deserved their Test call ups

Why would you take out his test numbers? It’s not like it was given to him for free? He had to earn those runs. I have never understood the logic of taking out someone’s best performances and then talking about their credentials.

Burns, Head and Neser deserved their Test call ups

Bird and Sayers aren’t anywhere near the level of Hazelwood.

Why Starc should stick to white-ball cricket

No surprise at all. He has always been an awful fielder.

Marcus Harris kicks off the Aus A game by dropping a sitter

Didn’t you watch any cricket when Wade was the Aussie keeper? He almost ended Lyon’s career with his pathetic keeping. And his batting was poor as well(avg of 28)

Australia needs to plan for its wicketkeeping future

Wade was and is an awful keeper. His keeping days for Australia is over.

Australia needs to plan for its wicketkeeping future

I wish they invited Bangladesh rather than Srilanka for this 3 match t20 series. Bangladesh has been a tremendous limited overs side over the past decade.

Shakib Al Hasan ban creates opportunity for Australia

You already criticize them buddy.i.e Alex Carey. I seriously rate him.

Warner and Maxwell demolish Sri Lanka

Now I know why you love Paine so much. Seriously I want to know,did you play with Paine at any level mate?

Warner and Maxwell demolish Sri Lanka

Spot on. He hasn’t scored enough runs in the ongoing Marsh oneday cup either. T20 is the only format that his temperament suits imo. You have two fine odi players in Handscomb and Head waiting for their opportunities.And then the likes of Turner,Short,Phillipe, McDermott and the ever improving Labuschagne in the queue.

Glenn Maxwell and Billy Stanlake in the spotlight against Sri Lanka

Good point. I don’t know why people keep mentioning him as a death over specialist. Everytime he was under pressure for Australia at the death,he choked.Such an overrated cricketer!

Australia begin journey to T20 World Cup

And also the fact he has hardly set the stage on fire since coming back. Both Richardson and Neser have done more than Pattinson in my opinion and should be ahead in the queue.

Who's knocking on the Test selection door?

Stoinis is having a great start in this season so far,Don. Three 50s from four innings and an impressive bowling performance with the ball taking three wickets in the second inning against Victoria.

Why Australia should look beyond Shaun Marsh

You are being too much pessimistic about Pucovski,Jeff? He is a great talent and scoring runs. So why so much doubt and uncertainty?

Why Australia should look beyond Shaun Marsh

I think selectors will only play an allrounder when they feel the need of it for the team balance. And that allrounder will be either Marsh or Stoinis whether anyone likes it or not.And selectors would pick someone who bowls seam up not spin. And you already have Lab to do that.

The 10 guys I was talking about are mainly batsman. After all batting is the fundamental job of the position Maxwell is vying for.

I will give you a list: Wade,Head,Pucovski,Stoinis,Patterson,Maddinson,Carey,Hughes,Khawaja, Harris,Handscomb. All of these guys have scored more runs than Maxwell over the past couple of years.

Starc flops and Carey shines in Sheffield Shield

Maxwell scored 43,so not a fifty. And his wickets were meaningless since S.Australia already piled up big runs. His economy was nearly 4 too. So hardly an inspiring performance.

Stoinis got two 50s and also took couple of wickets on a more sporting wicket. So I guess you get the point. There are atleast 10 guys ahead of Maxwell for test selection. Maxwell won’t be in the test team near future.

Starc flops and Carey shines in Sheffield Shield

Lab is Australia’s Joe Root. Not bad considering Australia has Smith in the side.

Warner and Pucovski ton up in Sheffield Shield

Harris is not an excellent first class cricketer. He averages less than 40. He has had one excellent last shield season. But it’s not like he churns out 40 plus shield season every year. Langer labelled him as a mediocre player only 2 or 3 years ago.

Warner and Pucovski ton up in Sheffield Shield

Alex Carey probably,just got a century. I know he doesn’t open in the shield but can do no worse than flakey guys like Bancroft or Harris. Or you can go with a proven performer like Burns who has 4 test hundreds to his name. It’s hard to believe how badly he has been treated by the selectors considering the amount of leeway offered to the Marsh bros,Bancroft,Harris .

Warner and Pucovski ton up in Sheffield Shield

Ben Dunk as well

Marsh Cup form could decide Australian T20I spots

Langer was right about Harris all those years ago. He is a mediocre batsman and an awful fielder.

Archer and Curran rip through Australia
