No wicket keeper

There are some truly funny selections in that group, but for mine the one that tops it off is Shaun Marsh. Lehmann himself said if he performs well in this current BBL he'll find himself on the Tour.

Shaun Marsh -

Balls faced: 80
Runs: 67
Dismissals: 6
Average: 11.16
Strike rate: 83.75

I mean what's the point?

Probably a bit early to get this up but with the squad released today lets get the salt flowing. Awful squad, but I guess they feel why try when you're going to get fisted anyway.

What the fuck is Lehmo doing selecting a test team on T20 form?
We've done it for a few years now. Maxwell averages 13 in Shield this year, made a bbl 50 though.

wolfgang
15th January 2017, 11:53 AM
This squad tells me is that Lehmo still has no fucking idea what to do at 6

Renshaw
Warner
Khwaja
Smith
Handjob
S.Marsh/M.Marsh/Maxwell...Agar???
Wade
Starc
Hazelwood
O'Keefe
Lyon

I don't think Bird is going to get a game this tour. In india we're pretty guaranteed to go with 2 spinners every match. Hazelgod is Mr. Consistent and Starc is a wicket taker. O'Keefe and Lyon will be the first choice spinners.

6 is still the big problem. I don't know why we went with M. Marsh as a bowling all rounder though. The reasoning was if there's a bit in the deck it will be nice to have him in the side... When was the last time there was anything in a deck for mediocre pace bowlers in India? Maybe they took Agar as a spinning all rounder, but he has a first class average of 40!! Indians have a history of feasting on any spinner that's anything other than world class. We can't rely on him to have significant overs without being super expensive.

Can we not play Wade, put Handscomb behind the stumps and have S. Marsh at 6 followed by an all rounder at 7? I mean it's not going to make us a worse team.

I really hope Smith has been rolling the shoulder over in the nets because he's probably going to end up being needed.

Yep, has looked awful throughout the BBL.

Agar looks in much better form with the bat & bowling has been decent - I would much prefer him over Marsh currently.

SMarsh, Warner, Khawaja, Smith, Handscomb, Maxwell, Wade, Starc, SOK, Hazlewood, Lyon.

15th January 2017, 02:20 PM
There was a good point - maybe just stick to our strength of quick bowlers rathey than three shit spinners.

I hate Wade getting selected.

With a 16 man squad i assume head and swepson will be more development and dont expect them to play.

I hope its
Renshaw
Warner
Khawaja
Smith
Handscombeeee
Smarsh
Wade
Okeefe
Starc
Haze
Lyon

From that. Mmarsh for smarsh if need be. Bird a possibility only if Maxwell plays i suspect.

Fuck maxwell.

Swepson: "Ok, explain this to me one more time. Where are we going?"

Selectors: "We're going to the sub-continent to play a test series against India!"

Swepson: "So why am I here?"

Selectors: "Because India is no place for three, unaccompanied pace bowlers."

Swepson: "Then why is Maxwell here?"

Selectors: "Because we need someone who can bowl and make runs."

Swepson: "Then why is Mitch Marsh here???"

Mitch Marsh: "Because Shaun didn't want to come alone!"

Rumblah
15th January 2017, 02:37 PM
I reckon Swepson plays once the series is over to be honest. Can see Maxwell playing all four. Probably get a 50 in one of the innings and send his fanboi's into meltdown.

Also I forget who said it but when Cartwright was picked a journo mentioned there's a view around the domestic scene that pathway players are being prioritised due to CA needing it to look good. Cartwright was one, Swepson is another.

We are fucked. Questionable if the batting can make enough runs away from home (particularly in India/subcontinent), but at least there is plenty of promise there. Bowling is going to fucking struggle to take 20 wickets though, with Lyon/O'Keefe expected to do the bulk of that. Going to be some loooong days in the field (made longer by the keeper and Smitty dropping catches), which is why they'll play an allrounder. Going off that list though most of them are pretty non-threatening at both disciplines.

Keeper, spinners, allrounder :vomit:. Batting and Hazlestarc :approve:

Rumblah
15th January 2017, 07:28 PM
Let's be honest, we could all agree on the perfect squad and it still gets fisted by India in India. Selecting garbage and others on hunches obviously doesn't help though.

wolfgang
15th January 2017, 10:13 PM
There's really only two bowlers we need to be worried about. Jadeja and Ashwin; get through those two we're facing off against Sharma, Mishra and Yadav on batting wickets. As unsuited to subcontinental conditions as our bowling line up is, India are relying on the above to get 5 wickets and innings each. Provided we don't completely collapse, these tests are almost certainly going to be decided by declarations.

Virat Kohli hits double hundred as India complies record total against Bangladesh after declaring at 6-687 (http://www.news.com.au/sport/cricket/virat-kohli-hits-double-hundred-as-india-complies-record-total-against-bangladesh-after-declaring-at-6687/news-story/fad50963cf76e5e9211eb1d848fe6078)

Kohli became the first batsman to score double centuries in four consecutive series as he reached 204, the standout performance in India’s 6-687 declared which featured three centuries.
The hosts became the first international team to record three successive scores of more than 600 after posting totals of 631 in Mumbai and 5-759 in Chennai against England last year.

Australia have dropped Usman Khawaja from the Test team with Shaun and Mitchell Marsh recalled to the XI for the first Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy series against India in Pune.

Australia captain Steve Smith won the toss and elected to bat first on a wicket that has observers commenting on its dryness, with Matthew Renshaw to continue his opening partnership with David Warner

The seam-bowling allrounder Mitchell Marsh comes into the side for Hilton Cartwright, who made his Test debut in Sydney against Pakistan, but was not selected for the Qantas Tour of India. The replacement of Khawaja for the elder Marsh brother, Shaun, is symptomatic of the "horses for courses" selection policy Australia first raised following last winter's Test series defeat in Sri Lanka. Marsh has an impressive record in Asia, with three previous Tests – all in Sri Lanka – yielding two centuries, one fifty and an average of 78.6.

Starc mainly went the tonk yesterday. It was effective, sure but just look at Maxxy if you want to see how that goes long term.

As for Marsh, he's not a 6. Trouble is Wade is trash and can't bat 6 either so the problem grows. When Lyon is going for 6 an over today and it's too hot for Starc to churn out a fifth over, we're going to be happy Mitch is there.

Brett Geeves goes Bang at Warne & the selectors :-

Shane Warne has been whipping Steve O’Keefe with a big ol' cat o nine tails for as long as I can remember. During this Test, he called him the weakest bowler in the group. That Ashton Agar and Mitchell Swepson would have been more threatening options. He wouldn’t bowl too much garbage, but couldn’t be relied upon as a wicket-taker.

Prior to this tour, and the most recent opinion, Warne branded O’Keefe a limited overs specialist and not a red ball player.

These are his stats for both — 67 games producing 237 wickets at an average of 22 vs. 48 games producing 29 wickets at an average of 55.

Now you might assume that O’Keefe’s red ball numbers are the 55 average. Well, you’d be as wrong as Shane Warne.

O’Keefe has been winning games of cricket for NSW for the last six years. And when I read on social media that the selectors have masterminded the development and green light of one of the great Test bolters of all time, I throw up all over the place.

Because the selectors have actually done themselves, O’Keefe and the performance of the country a disservice by not picking the best performed spinner in domestic cricket the last time we toured India and for any more than one game at a time since his Test debut against Pakistan in 2014, where he was the best performed spinner in the first Test of that series and then not seen again.
