Remember Archer isn't English and has only been there a few years, he knows Australian conditions well and has played well here. I think he would be looking forward to a trip here and more bounce and pace.

I don't know what else they have coming though, but I don't think Archer will suffer here. he's proven he can bowl fast here and is a good fielder off his own bowling- His Cutting catch was great.
Maybe. I'm not really fussed about Big Bash form or fielding off his own bowling tbh. I think they'll find things can get a lot worse than a mid 30's average.

Curran is quite promising. A couple of fast guys are also there but usually injured and not really that good yet.

Yeah Sam is a gun, but Tom is my favourite. He got 20 wickets in BBL08 and averaged 30 with the bat which is very good for a bowler batting at 7. But when he plays for England everything goes bad lol

Haha what a joke. The top 2 have sucked all series so you drop your number 5...and for Marsh nonetheless.

Head had it coming, he's done nothing to keep his spot. The only reason that Warner & Harris have survived is lack of alternatives.

Australia are just rubbing it in that we can't lose the series now... Look at the quality of the player we put in, we can't lose!

Not a lot to right home about with our top 3 (ML aside) but Usi is the best performed and he is the one who gets punted for Harris then we decide to give Marsh another go. Coach is W.A. both those guys are W.A.
I wonder if Marnus would have been selected if not for Smiths injury and forcing his way in.

Warner 4 matches avge 9.9 Balls faced 162
Harris 2 matches avge 11.5 BF 91
Bancroft 2 matches avge 11 BF 162
Khawaja matches 3 avge 20.3 BF 188

Yep and then they will use Bancroft to say there is no favouritism. This even despite the fact that even at domestic level, I'm pretty sure Neser has been a far better performed all-rounder than Marsh over the last 12-18 months.

Meanwhile Joe Burns has 4 centuries from his 16 matches and averages 40, compared to Harris/Bancroft's combined 0 centuries from 18 matches at a 26 avg.
