I hope he plays in the Ashes to see how he goes. Just read a story on him where he says he enjoys playing the moving ball.

It's good to see a young player talk like that tbh, too many modern batsmen don't fancy it when it's moving around

Good pick by the selectors aswell considering he wasnt in the original squad. Get the man in form in.

With the 3 centurions in this test and 3 banned players soon to be available what will the aussie top 6 be for the 1st Ashes test?

Bancroft is already available, anyway I think he is as I saw him in the BBL.

The logical selections will be Warner and Smith replace Khawaja and Marnus.

Yes he has been scoring some runs in the Bash. Might be a struggle to see him and Warner back in the same side in any case

Khawaja has had a lean run after that knock vrs Pakistan. Does have previous experience of England though which could be valuable.

Harris fellow has looked decent without making a big score. I think Burns and Patterson are now certain to play though. Can't see Paine leaving out Warner, however much he dislikes him, as he averages 47 and only Smith can boast better than that.

Khawaja unless he gets a hundred in the second innings will struggle to get into the XI. Anyway that's my thinking but my thinking don't really count

Selectors have made it clear they want warner back. Bancroft has had to come out and try and mend bridges with him given the selectors views on warner if hes going to have any chance of playing for aus.

Difficult to see Bancroft being selected over warner

I really feel the Smith/Bancroft interviews with Gilchrist where staged to make the Australian public feel sorry for Warner. It's pretty unAustralian to throw each other under the bus, but since those interviews it seems like Warner isn't as hated by the Australians.

Scary stuff watching the Sri Lankans try and play the short stuff from the Aussies, they just look completely incompetent, thank goodness for helmets.

I'd say Warner and Smith come straight back, between Harris and burns, I just don't think there is room for Bancroft in an ashes squad, unless he has a pretty remarkable finish to the shield season. Through the whole saga, I think the experience that some of these fringe players now have in Burns, Harris, Labuschagne, Head, Patterson and Richardson is incredibly invaluable when it comes time for the ashes. This team now has tangible depth, which is something I'm not sure can be said about England after the performances in the Caribbean.

Something like this maybe?

Joe Burns
David Warner
Usman Khawaja
Steve Smith
Marnus Labuschagne
Kurtis Patterson
Travis Head
Tim Paine (c/wk)
Pat Cummins
Mitchell Starc
Jhye Richardson
Nathan Lyon
Marcus Stoinis

I'd imagine Hazelwood will be there as well, and they will take either Wade or Carey as a reserve keeper

Australia crushed Sri Lanka to win the series 2-0. Mitchell Starc bulldozerd them again to finish the match 5-54 and 5-46.

The beleaguered tourists now go to South Africa and will cop more fast bowling hostility from Steyn and co.
