    Bring Dan Christian back into the Australian ODI AND 20/20 teams. He is a champion cricketer and deserves to be in these teams. He doesn’t need to be punished for things that other cricketers have done and they make the teams.. Bring DAN CHRISTIAN back and give this CHAMPION a go!!!!!

    The success if the bug bash us astonishing but would be even better if they alternated teams after 10 overs . It would be fairer and even more exciting. Each team has two ten innings

    Dan Christian in the Australian side? Are you South Australian?
    He is a fine cricketer, but I think there is a few blokes that should be there first.
    Cutting should be there first, and I am a South Australian.
    One thing I will say with all my conviction is that Tait should never play for Australia. Doesn’t matter how fast you can bowl, if you have no line or length, you can do the job. And he is not even good for 5 runs with the bat. The most overrated player in bbl
    Brett Lee would be a better choice than Tait, even when Lee is 50!
