So hmm.

Labuschagne, Neser likely to be among four debutants for Australia - ESPNcricinfo (http://www.espncricinfo.com/story/_/id/24899738/marnus-labuschagne-michael-neser-likely-four-debutants-australia)

Really not what I was expecting.

Finch, Khawaja, SMarsh, MMarsh, Head, Lamborghini, Paine, Starc, Neser, Lyon, Holland.

What a time to be alive.

Khawaja and Finch posting fifties in both innings tells you how much of a joke the rest of the order is.

Slide Shaun and Mitch back to 5 and 6, bat Head at 4 and open with Renners. Uz back to three and drop Lamborghini. (won't happen because no lead up cricket for Renners)

still a pretty woeful performance all round considering. actually impressed at some final innings determination though.

remember the days of Clarke/Hadds where they would be chasing 400, get bowled out for 120, and still be happy with the big L because they played 'attacking cricket' to get that 120 and 'gave themselves a chance to win'

Paine GOAT leader, no one is allowed to critisize his captaincy or leadership every again. Usman was fucking immense too.

Does this XI bat out a full day plus under Lehmann? I really don't think it evens gets close. Very happy with Langer to date.

That was very Langer-esque that innings. Considering we had 3-4 players who did crap all, all test match, the rest did bloody well. Heads and GOAT's knocks were is important as well.

God, I am so proud of Tim Paine. I was so so so wrong about him. This will shut everyone up about his captaincy for a while.

We're genuinely horrible away from home with our best side, let alone one that's been gutted. To post just 200 in the first innings and bring it back to a draw is a fantastic effort, and as I touched on earlier it doesn't happen under the previous coach.

LC
16th October 2018, 11:27 AM
I have this feeling that selection will be in part dictated by a slight pull away from giving away one-off baggy greens.

Whether that's justified as being a player welfare thing and wanting to avoid someone going through their career remembered as a Bryce McGain "got smashed in his one test" type player, or that's just purely ex-test players being selective about who they welcome into that fold, I don't know.

But feel like if the selection conundrum was "Hazlewood, Starc, and then do we pick Peter Siddle?", it's far more likely than "Starc, Siddle, and then do we give Michael Neser or Brendan Doggett a test cap?"

I'd play Agar anyway...

Assuming Khawaja unavailable? (In which case Renshaw to 3, Khawaja back opening).

Rumblah
20th October 2018, 04:05 PM
Would be incredibly unlikely Uz would be available. I think best case scenario is six weeks recovery and that's if everything goes perfectly, not to mention Langer prefers players who are at the very least playing cricket as we've seen with Renshaw this series.

Other one I'll throw back in the mix is Bird. Ten wicket match against Queensland this week, I'd have him comfortably in front of Siddle but stuck in that unfortunate spot of being better than the rest but not quite as good as Hazlewood.

Bancroft is another that will come into calculations, with his suspension up late December I think? Langer is a huge fan and will be keen to re-establish him I think. Huge huge huge opportunity for state batsman this Shield season.
