Completely agree. I never understood their selection, very ordinary for Test cricket.

Swepson is a leg spinner with potential. Picked up a bag of wickets mid 2016 against SA A and India A

The Aussie obsession with agar continues. Hasn't shown any potential with the ball

What's with Aussies one shot selection policy for newbies.


Chris Lynn, steve smith said in the build up "Lynn has a license to thrill" ". dropped after 1 game.


Test squad announced, 16man, no hilton Cartwright, no nic Maddison, no callum ferguson. But both marsh brother are back in there!!

Lynns injured, Maddison didn't show enough, Ferguson was a bandaid attempt. Shaun Marsh should ne there, Mitch Marsh's se;ection baffles me.

Didn't know Lynn was innired(I should research more)

Agree on Maddison and both marsh brothers. Just think fergusons and cartwright(among a few others) should have a decent run, they chop and change too much.

And seem to go back one decisions("maxwell hasn't scored enough runs and no shield century in years" a month later maxwell in squad with out playing any shield cricket since).

Shaun marsh is an opener, shouldn't get a game with renshaw and warner opening, even if an injury occurs I'd rather have khawaja move up(as he has been doing) than marsh getting a game.

All baffling, but then Aussies aren't the only ones hat do it.

If maxwell and the marsh brothers are back in there cannot be enough quality in the state game, or the selectors have got a bit mixed up. There does seem some odd decisions made selection wise lately for Australia.

Coming off the back of a couple of series wins they may well do better than us in India. A lot rests of Warner and smith thou for runs

Mitchell Marsh has reinjured his bowling shoulder and is a doubt for the Indian tour. They really should take Faulkner his style is good for Indian pitches

On the money @ppccopener ! If the Indians work out Smith and Warner early, we are in trouble!

I can't understand why they gave Cartwright a game in Sydney, without bothering to take him to India.
Think ahead and put in a guy you want to take on tour.

I'm ok with them dropping players back to state cricket to build their technique. But they have to knock on the door to get back in.
From memory, Matt Hayden made over 1000 runs in three consecutive seasons before being put back into the test team.
After the 2005 Ashes, Michael Clarke got dropped but runs and a double century at state level and heavy runs in ODI's kept him in contention. It was only Watson's injury that got him into the team for the 2006/7 Ashes. Once back though, he made two hundreds in two games and the rest is history as they say.

These guys need consistency. Maxwell has one good innings for Australia in 10. Sure on that day he is a match winner, but you can't be in an international team at the prospect of being a hero, but ending up being a zero most of the time.

Shaun Marsh can't stay fit.

Sorry, why was Mitch Marsh in the team in the first place? As someone that likes to call themselves an all-rounder, i support there being one in the team. But the selectors need to set a criteria and stick to it.
An all-rounder must be able to be picked on one discipline alone. Meaning they should be able to be picked in the team as either a batsmen or a bowler and just happen to do the other pretty well. Mitchell Marsh doesn't fit this criteria.
