.Let’s not forget the main concern . His test form abroad is hideous and we have a tour of India and Pakistan next year. Off the back of any Australian form he still shouldn’t tour abroad next year. Uk ashes worst opening series average in cricket history of any player of any country in 109 years

This Ashes series will be closer than you think

Dtm street and whiteman are two very interesting candidates . I’d really like the selectors to take a view on which one may be able to handle subcontinent pitches this coming year too . Green and head to start down at 4 and 5 I still also don’t think it’s ridiculous to start with Labuschagne if we are really stuck at top . I’d almost prefer to shuffle order up and get Carey in their batting at 6 for stability before Paine at 7 as the transition begins on home soil for the tours ahewd this year . Pucovksi and Labuschagne could open in the subcontinent . Inglis is another intersting candidate to replace Paine bitnwe can’t get him playing red ball with all this t20 cricket . India tour this coming year and Pakistan we need to be ready with red ball experience and there is not much of it tongo on

Just happy with green down the order and hoping this last shield match of double lbw is an anomoly

Dtm I like this idea of whiteman . Considering we have little form to go on whiteman has looked very interesting last summer and this summer opening

This Ashes series will be closer than you think

Matt agree just a very concerning shield match from green this week. I’vr Been a Big fan though . Hopefully he smashed it next shield match

This Ashes series will be closer than you think

I noticed two single digit lbw in shield this week not good for green on a true ashes pitch really . Let’s hope it’s just a bad shield match but it was concerning

A reminder on why warner should never be selected for a foreign tour again. The question is if we select him this ashes will they be strong enough tod top him for foreign tours next year where he does not deserve to tour. www.abc.net.au/news/2019-09-08/david-warner-admits-stuart-broad-ashes-struggles/11490064

Aj73 spot on analysis and your being kind not noting Warner’s losest ashes series average in uk of 7 in 100 years of test cricket history in a series anywhere . One other issue is the only form he has in three years is against Pakistan where all our players made big runs batting first on concrete pitches in searing heat with Pakistan absolutely broken in the heat and field . All the Aussies made runs m then nz of you take the dead rubber match out the average is around 34 for warner where the kiwis got on top of him with a weakened bowling attack boult was put a test and hamstring and Ferguson broke down missing a second innings so the bowling struggled as the kiwis were in field in heat a few times as well . The warner form is pretty questionable since 2018

Not surprised . Not sure when our selectors will acknowledge he shouldn’t go on tour with red ball for aus again

WATCH: Dave Warner falls for a golden duck after an absolute screamer from Martin Guptill

Just continining to add to that post oz . I think Aus needs to be careful after a year away from any red ball cricket this shield form is really important . McDermott and phillipe are making runs . Khawaja racked up a huge century when everyone was failing in this shield match . Carey can be a steadying influence with bat and totally different to head who can change a match but also be so streaky outside off stump.
Sadly oz you are right about Carey not playing until Paine moves on or fails again. We are wasting time and probably runs for me not playing him instead of Paine now as the later has played no red ball cricket and is 36 and ageing . One thing about subcontinent next year is khwaja may be worth another look . He had a tricky run with family matters and then a hard uk ashes where he wasn’t allowed to open after good subcontinent form just previous to that where he had a run as opener. I’m really wondering if it is time to move on from warner as he shouldn’t tour abroad again next year . Alot of time out of red ball cricket and some of them getting on in age .

It’s very a tricky lead up for Australia with some candidates that could be playing shield cricket playing t20 cup abroad . Smith has been hitting it ok with t20 but warner is hideously out of form and was dropped in India all be it both aren’t playing red ball cricket . Nsw and Vic shield is on standbye and it seems the first true set of matches were last two matches with one at Adelaide oval .
There’s been a stand out performance with ball by steketee in shield but the batting is hard to read with two states missing and few matches at the ashes venues.
Head match this week at Adelaide oval match was a little more challenging scoring 55 and 23 I think . Carey 35 and 66* very telling and well as many know I’d be getting him in there in front of Paine at Carey’s age asap. Inglis smacked some good runs in t20 against kiwis but is missing red ball lead up
Otherwise khawaja made a very good century . I think khawaja head and Carey are batsmen to consider. Carey’s selection may be inevitable next year coming up. Whiteman is an interesting opener . He just opened with a solid 49 second innings In a tough low scoring match at waca . Phillpe and McDermott continue to pile up some good runs with half centuries . I’m not sure there are many others to consider beside the perennial shield form of marsh who I still think probably should have been selected against India as he was clocking up huge shield runs last year and now again but he’s no long term touring prospect . Inglis may be interesting but t20 is not helping to get a read on hisbred ball form . Moreover warner is dire at present in the short form with no lead up red ball form after injuries last year . Cameron greens single digit fails were surpising in this current shield match

Jeff intersting with Queensland putting up hard quarentine for foreigners until 17 Dec there are calls to do exactly what I anticipated fly England in to Sydney no quarentine much like family in to Vic no quarentine a bit later . Brendan Julian suggested if Queensland and wa make it difficult to have multi tests in Vic and nsw which is what I was getting at . I thought this was a bit predictable when we were talking about this a few weeks ago . I’m sure tests will go ahead but Sydney and melbourne have dropped quarentine as I anticipated and become the natural fly in go to and it’s was all about obvious given zero covid in Queensland and wa and the protection of community with slower roll out there . Nsw and Vic will satisfy the concerns of the poms although I hope we get Gabba , Perth and SA off smoothly as they are the grounds Australia should get results at

'Mental health has suffered': England puts doubt on Ashes tour, will decide in next few days

Ohpontong progeny this is great news . His dad wasn’t a great captain but. But for a long while the best first drop since bradman

Ricky Ponting's son has first ever net session and he's already better than you

Hahaha Timmy stop no more your playing they won’t sack you even if you fail.!!!

'He's only 23': Tim Paine backs in Will Pucovski to bounce back from latest concussion

Streetspunds intersting . Whiteman ? Need a balance for ambiguous warner

LISTEN: Michael Clarke's surprise choices for Will Pucovski's Ashes opener replacement

Ashes is still 8 weeks . Pucovski should get scans in a few weeks before this talk all sets in
Head is hitting big but he’s flashy . Warner and head flashing outside off to open are both similar . No thanks . Khawaja could be fine on Aussie wickets but perhaps an opportunity to look to future and aubcontinent tours next year . A few other candidates. Alot of the side already chosen . Head should start at 5 given his form . Forget wade .
Labs smith Green and potentially head now seem a lock if head can keep replicating in shield. See today . Paine is well a selectors CA darling so he is in as captain , as is warner who is ambiguous at his age but will start until they realise they need to look at others next year for sub continent tours or until it costs us again . Doesn’t leave many selections if pucovski recovers. Not my ideal team but selectors are stubborn . Whiteman may be interesting if he can hold form to open ? Someone suggested street? Be interesting to see if the Tassie kid Tim ward can repeat his first shield game performance opening well next few shield games.

Alot of draws in recent years solid wins before that

How this 'battle hardened' England squad can reclaim the Ashes down under

Australia will certainly want a healthy Gabba Adelaide and Perth performance where they are strongest . Mcg and scg performances have been dire in recent years as they stick with the same non performers at those grounds time after time outside of the dire nz tour pre bushfires heat where Aussies batted first . It’s been a disaster either side of that for aussies as they refused to change bowling line up at mcg and scg

How this 'battle hardened' England squad can reclaim the Ashes down under

He certainly got good guarentrees out of Queensland and Victoria with a golf resort and outdoors quarnetine and no quarentine for the families regionally . Australia gave way to English demands really

Joe Root hailed for Ashes leadership

Jeff there are already huge questions on paines captaincy both on and off the field and many commentators held their toungue after starting to lay in to him during the indian series for inept decision making let alone key moments in the UK ashes . Respectively I have to agree Paine has severely contributed In costing Australia key results in series against India at home and england abroad and many will agree with that assessment as per this article including Australian test players who progress carefully with PC stances around their commentating duties . Healy warne border have all made comment about paines poor decision making at times only to then make neutral comments after . Paine has made careless to dangerous comments off field against Afghanistan and now England during the pandemic

Michael Vaughan slams Tim Paine for 'lack of class', forecasts dire Ashes tour for England

Spot on micko I can list more Paine mistakes at lord’s final day and at mcg against India but he was dire as captain at headingly . Not to mention sending England in to bat at the oval first (after we had just been out in the field bowling the test previous ) . Mistake after mistake as captain and we drew and lost key series that we could have won and or drawn respectively . Alot was down to paines inept decision making tactically , so many poor drs decisions and crumbling under pressure with panic decisions. He took way to long to bowl labuschsnge too at the Manchester win from memory where the ball was turning

Michael Vaughan slams Tim Paine for 'lack of class', forecasts dire Ashes tour for England

Micko I made the calls about starc lyon going in to Sydney and Melbourne tests but got lambasted after I said they are weaker grounds at times for both and that they hadn’t fared well against quality teams at mcg and scg (their averages are much worst at both grounds and got bolstered by Pakistan white wash.
their averages at those grounds were nowhere near as good as Adelaide Perth and Gabba where bounce deck and movement suits both . Pink ball really suits starc in evenings . They refused to bring Pattinson at mcg who is a machine there and we lost there and refused to bring neser in to the mix at scg and Gabba in particular . As for paines captaincy the decisions and results speak for themselves

Michael Vaughan slams Tim Paine for 'lack of class', forecasts dire Ashes tour for England

Never should have been played Gabba, Pattinson mcg where his record is insane. Starc pink ball specialist now and loves the evening conditions. Selectors need to wake up to key rotations and ground condition changes

Promising Ward shows Hayden-like qualities against star-studded Queensland attack

I was there one of the greatest days in Australian cricket despite losing the match . Amazing innings the poms got very nervous thinking the game was dusted and were humiliated with agars innings

'Proud I got to share it with him': Ashton Agar's incredible Ashes debut and his bond with 'Hughesy'

Maybe the new opener to join pucovski if not whiteman . Will need quite a few more but a promising start . McDermott adding to his case for middle order start . I’m guessing the pitch is a bit of a road and will wait to see Queensland bat . More shield games can’t come soon enough with Victoria and nsw watching paint dry for several weeks
