    Remember when Bobby Simpson made a comeback at such a fucking ancient age, because WSC?

    I want Mark Taylor to do the same.

    Finch survives, somehow. Looks as if he's going to open too. Lambo the only addition to the squad.

    Labuschagne has been added to Aussie Test squad. that is all, which is not a shock.

    Not really expecting him to do anything with ball and bat.

    If we're gonna stick with Finch surely we bat him down the order. It is clear he technically cannot cope with opening.

    Raises more questions than it answers. Khawaja opens? Shaun Marsh then bats three? Who benefits from that?

    Should have never been moved from opening to 3 in the first place.

    Our captain couldnt get a game for tassie either. Our domestic setup is very questionable.

    Somewhat a myth. He was playing but Wade was taking the gloves. His glovework for Hobart Hurricanes got him into the national T20 side and they were so impressed with that he got the Test gig.

    As far as Tasmania were aware at the time, Wade was closer to selection.

    I wonder if there's some merit to having all keepers put into a central pool, if they're picked by their home state, great, if not, they're open to any other Shield team throughout the year?

    Ensures the best 6 keepers are playing constantly, and are keeping in a wide variety of conditions to a wide variety of bowlers?

    Based on what Mark Waugh said it wasn't even on the t20 form.

    Bit of a joke that tas don't even know he's in the mix though. You'd think there'd be pretty open lines of communication but with CA nothing surprises

    Paine was just coming back into the squad under Griff. He missed the first game as Paine had just come back from a T20 series in Pakistan and being the captain for the PMXI. Wade was the keeper because he was the Aussie Keeper. Bails must have known something was up as we batted far too long against Victoria so Paine could make some big runs to get the call-up. Wade at this stage, needed to be dropped as his confidence was shot and mind all over the place.

    The years before, under Coach Dan Marsh, he wasn't part of the team. But Dan Marsh, for whatever reason, disliked Paine and was trying to get rid of him. Paines form was worthy of being dropped mind you. He wasn't the keeper, as we had Dunk and Doran as keepers. IIRC, it was an intervention from Ponting which saved Paine's Tas contract from being cut.

    I reckon you can find posts by me, calling for Paine to be cut. But players get better and players get worst. It's called form. It is why the selectors annoy me when they keep someone in the team for far too long. Finch is as bad as Handscomb atm. Finch needs to be dropped(my call) or at least move down the order to where Victoria play him.

    I was at that Shield game - it was as flat a road as possible, even by MCG standards. Paine only made about 38 I think? And batted too long to try to get Doolan to....250 I think?

    CA communicate? This is an organisation that barred James Faulkner from accepting a county deal in England on the basis of keeping him fresh for national duty, and then didn't even offer him said central contract.

    Then, they cracked the shits at him for being pissed off about it.

    checked scorecard. 71 n.o for Paine and 247 for Doolan, Paine came in 4 ahead of Wade, Faulkner, McDermott etc so I think you were right.

    Should open with Cummins, at least it means he'll get more of a rest between the batting and bowling innings.

    Do agree with what Warne said today about MCG tests for next few years while curators prepare new pitches.

    Day night tests. Will at least allow more movement from bowlers.

    Do recall hearing/ reading all the MCG pitches are in the process of being destroyed as the curator opts for a restart. Not sure why this wasn't the plan from last year but right decision finally made.
