If Adelaide ends up being a green pitch to preserve the pink ball, I would like to see Lyon sit out that test . If Maxwell plays at 6 he can bowl a few overs of offies and James Pattinson can come into the side , so oz can have a crack using all of the 'big four'. It would be exciting to see Starc , Hazlewood,  Cummins,  Pattinson all in the same attack .

Based on past records surely one of them is bound to end up crocked before then ;)

Yeah , you're right about that..... even a.t.m only Cummins , of the four , is fit.

I think Westley and Dawson are a waste of the cost of airline tickets ! Make them sit at home and pay for a Sky Sports subscription!

Won't they then need to buy a BT Sports subscription?!  :D :(

BT went behind Sky's back and did a deal direct with Cricket Australia to have the exclusive rights to all of Australia's home tests & BBL. This deal then effects Sky's deal with the ECB to show all England tests as BT Sport have the exclusive rights with the host broadcaster.

Im not sure it really counts as "going behind Sky's backs" there are usually invitation to tender notices sent out for things like this, i suspect BT offered more money than Sky did presumably off the back of trying to disrupt the next domestic cricket rights bidding too. Not sure how long BT's deal is for but will be interesting to see if they try to retain these rights if they havent cracked the domestic market.

Does make me wonder how Sky think they can fill an entire cricket channel throughout the winter, i know they have a raft of their own produced content with the masterclasses and what not but can see the cricket channel being very repetitive over the next few months!

From memory the BT deal is for 4 years (about 60m) and includes exclusive live access to the 2017/18 Ashes, Big Bash plus the women's Ashes and T20 comp. It was an open tender and BT bid more than Sky who had just committed a ridiculous amount for the football.
