State of Origin Rep
Sandhu is a bowler not a batsmen. We needed another bowler to replace Johnson for the series so Sandhu got a run. Your argument would have more plausibility if they needed another batsmen for the ODIs. A batting lineup of Warner, Finch, Watson, Smith, Marsh/Maxwell, Bailey & Haddin was always going to make it harder for him to get into the team. All are well ahead on the pecking order for the Australia ODI side. Not sure why Maxwell is but it has been made quite clear he is from the selectors.Lynn could have been selected. Of course he didn't deserve to be on pure numbers, but we pick plenty of players who don't deserve to be there. More so in tests than anything, but Mitch Marsh is basically in the team on potential. I don't see why Lynn couldn't have been, particularly when Sandhu has been given a run this series and is not WC bound.
