This is the worst Australian team Ive seen and Im sure others agree.

Starc nothing without the sandpaper.
Batting looks woeful - even worse with khawaja injured now
Embarassing recall of Siddle - surely aussies have other young quicks. Better hope Cummings and hazlewood are fit for the summer.

The marsh brothers really arent the saviours of Aussie cricket despite their ashes heroics

The home series vs India is going to be very interesting indeed. The India pace attack is very decent now with Yadav, Shami and Bumrah etc... it is one thing losing away on the sub continent but if they get turned over at home... hmmmmm

The thing I really don't get is why the Australians are shooting themselves in the foot quite so hard with selection. They'd probably have lost to Pakistan anyway, but surely their top 6 would look a lot better with Renshaw, Burns and Maxwell in place of the Marshes and Labuschagne. Keep Shaun Marsh at 5 if you want but sticking Mitchell in at 4 in a test series is criminal selection. Siddle's an honest bowler but there must have been a better option available for a subcontinent tour? Aussie members, tell me I'm wrong.

Whoever is selected you/we can level stuff at. Moeen vs leech, Compton being dropped.. name as many as you want

Fact is, Maxwell isnt a red ball player and siddle is at least supposed to be accurate unlike quicks (plus they are all broken). Renshaw, well something has happened behind the scenes... burns hasnt really shown much but like most, becomes a better player out of the team.

Maybe Aus like eng just dont have the talent pool for red ball (quality wise).

Is Callum Ferguson not going to be considered. He had a good county season and hes solid.

Was the next big thing in Aussie cricket before he was his injuries

Not sure where this notion that Maxwell isn't a red ball player. He averages over 40 in red ball cricket. More than M Marsh, Finch, Paine, Labushchagne, Head and Renshaw. Only ones with a better fc record are Smith, Warner and Khawaja so therefore Maxwell is fourth best batsman in Australia. Unless stats for selection are distorted whereby Maxwell needs to win a noble peace prize to get selected. Maxwell scored a brilliant hundred for Yorkshire on raging green top and he's actually got a test hundred in Asia.

Maxwell is a really good player, I think he ran over a selectors sheep in a previous life - big, big CA mistake!!!

As an england fan Renshaw, Maxwell and co can most definitely stay out of favour until this time next year. If a top order anything like the current one turns up next summer no bookie will even give you odds on an Oz win.

Maxwells the second best Aussie player of spin. Hes got runs on the sub continent and shown hes got the temperament.
Now I dont know how relevant the allegations in the spot fixing video are, but even mark W thought he shouldve been picked
