I still can't believe Dussey never played tests for Aus. SMarsh needs to be dropped, he should have been three years ago.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+?
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.This would be my side for the first test in Aus:
6. (Really no idea who should go here)
7. Paine (c)
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.Should Pucovski be fast-tracked?
