Australia tour of UAE (v Pakistan)

Piss both Mash brothers off for life honestly, I'm so sick of watching them average 10-20 overseas and then come home and score just enough runs to retain their spots, fuck off, you need to score runs everywhere.

What's it going to take for the Marshes to get dropped? Serious question. I can't believe that Mitch has played 30 test matches...

EDIT: Remember when Smarsh first came into the side averaging about 35 in FC cricket instead of D.Hussey who was averaging 55+?

I still can't believe Dussey never played tests for Aus. SMarsh needs to be dropped, he should have been three years ago.

MMarsh won't be dropped now he is somehow VC.

Should Pucovski be fast-tracked?

This would be my side for the first test in Aus:

1. Finch
2. Renshaw
3. Khawaja
4. Head
5. Lehmann
6. (Really no idea who should go here)
7. Paine (c)
8. Cummins
9. Starc
10. Hazlewood
11. Lyon

Not sure Lehmann has done enough, I'd say Maxwell at 5, with the 6th spot to go to the highest scorer in shield at the time of selecting the first test, ideally someone who can bowl, but at this point we need an extra specialist batsman more than we need a 5th bowler.

If he scores another ton or two before the first test, yes. The Australian selectors usually don't like fast tracking people with actual talent though, so we'll probably have to wait a few years to see him and Pope regardless of their averages.
 

Think I might agree with Warney, that's pretty much my ideal team at the moment.. Excluding the (c) on Finch which is obviously Warne's Victoria bias, Usman should be captain.

Tweaked a knee in warm-up and didn't field, isn't allowed to bat for ~2 hours, give or take, at this rate I probably wouldn't even bat him, waste of time & not worth risking further injury.
Or five down- which might come before two hours.
 
Team against India with no Khawaja? Guess what that means boys.. Shaun Marsh!

1. Finch
2. Renshaw
3. S.Marsh
4. Head
5. Maxwell
6. M.Marsh
7. Paine
8. Starc
9. Cummins
10. Lyon
11. Hazlewood

That's totally what the team is going to be, isn't it.
