The allrounder requirement is the great myth of Australian cricket.

No one has filled the role adequately, ie without weakening the team, since Alan Davidson

Marsh injury could bring Stoinis into Test frame

This summer we confront one opponent who has won one test match here in the last 34 years (New Zealand) and another who has not won a test here since December 1995 (Pakistan). What team do we want to put up against that quality of opposition given their past performance here?

Do the selectors, who have given us more changes to the top 6 than can be easily remembered (and it is still a mess), keep pushing Wade whose batting performances have a little bit of the Marcus North about them (centuries here and there and not much else in between) or should we be doing everything to identify the best young batsmen in this country (who will be able to play against the top teams) and present them with their opportunity ie Patterson and Pucovski?

Aussies should be disappointed with underwhelming Ashes

Worried that Wade will be the new Marcus North. Just when he is out the door a hundred etc.

Also need to be vigilant against WA allrounders given we have tried Agar, Cartwright, Marsh, Stoinis and Turner at international level in the last few years.

Who should the Test selectors look at for the summer?
