Interesting. I hadn't thought about the length of time before they would next play shield cricket.
I suppose Warner, Smith and Starc won't be in the NSW squad either.
That's up to them but those guys are current test players- Finch and Maxwell aren't. Dropping Smith out of your squad is a bit different to Finch.
But I don't know why they bother naming them in State Squads and pretending they play a part.
