West Indies: Jason Holder (c), Sulieman Benn, Carlos Brathwaite, Darren Bravo, Jonathan Carter, Johnson Charles, Andre Fletcher, Shannon Gabriel, Sunil Narine, Ashley Nurse, Kieron Pollard, Denesh Ramdin, Marlon Samuels, Jerome Taylor

The form: Australia’s last hit-out in the 50-over format was in early February, when the No.1 ranked ODI side suffered a 2-1 Chappell-Hadlee series loss to New Zealand in Hamilton. The Black Caps won the first match of the series by a whopping 159 runs, before Australia bounced back courtesy of an unbeaten 69 from Mitch Marsh and an impressive debut for Adam Zampa to level the series in Wellington. But the hosts reigned supreme in a gripping final contest in Hamilton, winning by 55 runs amid high drama. South Africa’s last 50-over outing was also in February, when the Proteas bounced back after losing their first two matches to England to take a 3-2 series victory. Centuries to Quinton de Kock and Hashim Amla helped South Africa chase down 318 in Centurion, before a four-wicket haul from Kagiso Rabada levelled the series in Johannesburg. An unbeaten ton from skipper AB de Villiers was then enough to clinch the series in Cape Town. The Windies haven’t played an ODI since early November last year, when they were whitewashed 3-0 in Sri Lanka. The bright spot for the Windies in that series was the form of veteran batsman Marlon Samuels, who scored fifty in the second match before compiling an unbeaten century in the third ODI.

What they said? "I hate the word 'rotation' but we have to manage it really well” – stand-in coach Justin Langer intimating that there will be plenty of changes in the Australia XI during the series with multiple players returning from injury or long lay-offs.


So ye think the start of these games combined with it being an ODI series and Scott Boland featuring yet again will have many of us checking the scores in the morning. It's probably going to be pointless attempting to pick our XI but I'll give it a shot.

Fat boy

Only change I'd like off the top of my head would be Usman in anywhere, guess he could play instead of Bailey and push Smith down to four. With so many guys returning from IPL commitments it should be fun to watch guys struggle with timing, placement and everything else you lose after playing see ball hit ball.

Usman must play, Bailey out, Smith to bat at 4 - simples.

So Narine huh? 6/27 just to kick things off. Rip us if he's going to go ham.

AUSTRALIA'S 12-MAN SQUAD (final XI TBA):*Aaron Finch, David Warner, Usman Khawaja, Steve Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Mitchell Marsh, Matthew Wade, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood, Scott Boland, Nathan Lyon.

Seems to be written in starting order. Get ready boys, Scott Boland gets another shot.

Fuck it's refreshing to see ball dominate bat. Our ability to get stuck in is still non existent.

8th June 2016, 12:53 PM
Big show's last 5 international innings :- 0, 6, 0, 0 & 3.


8th June 2016, 02:12 PM
3 blokes hit double figures, including number 10 and 11

67m straight boundaries tonight should provide those underperforming batsman with some extra incentive to not be dumb mutts.

Inb4 they're worse.

12th June 2016, 11:27 AM
Saffers more or less on track to get this done

12th June 2016, 12:30 PM
Soft as fuck from Duminy.

12th June 2016, 12:51 PM
Ughhhh go away Wade. Just cost Zampa his 4th.

12th June 2016, 12:59 PM
Lol at losing 7-42 at the back end. Pea hearts. Good win for us.
