It pretty much has to be this XI, nobody has even come close to demanding selection.

Might be the side named but I'd have Bancroft in for the hopeless Harris and S Marsh instead of Head.

Harris is hopeless, I kind of named him out of sheer disappointment in everyone. He is useless against good pace bowling.

What's plan B if a bowler got hurt leading into the test?

Harris is coming off a 1200 shield run season and Head has 7 50's in 12 Tests and most runs for Australia In the last 18 months.

Pattinson is plan B but I named Green because you know I rate him extremely highly. He won’t play, there for camp experience.

Harris seems one of those blokes who is decent at the next level down, horribly exposed at the top level.

Why reward Green over Neser? Neser has been the form bowler and he deserves to be next.

I have no problem with that. However, it is a choice I would make and that's why I would do it, obviously. I think Green has the potential to be something we haven't seen in a long, long time. He could also end up being overhyped by me but he has whatever it is.

Marsh has had more starts than Phar Lap. He doesn't deserve another chance and needs to be firmly placed in the scrap heap where he belongs. Usman Khawaja can join him in the scrap heap. Blood some rookies if you have to while you have Smith there to pretty much save everyone's ass. Agreed with Harris, don't think he has that next level step in him

Surely Burns gets first shot. He has a couple of 50's so far this season and has a good Test record, Bancroft has no 50's this season and a poor test record.

Yeah I agree but you know, Bancroft = WA = Langer's love child.

Cmon pick Neser for the Gabba Test. Make up for snubbing Cutting back when he was actually a good long-form bowler

Heard Trevor Hohns saying on the ABC time to give Joe Burns another go at opening .
LH / RHB and he is good buddies with Warner .
Golden duck in 2nd innings Aus A vs Pak . Obviously pushed his cause . lol .

He also got dropped like the ball before getting out in the other innings.

That Pakistani 16 year old looks like he has one of the best actions I've ever seen, like Younis and Lillee had a baby.

Green is also injured and is picked fo WA as a specialist bat

Specialist bat? He's bowled in every single FC game he's played in except for the one that was just finished, and the only reason he didn't bowl is workload management after he pulled up sore bowling 16 overs vs NSW. He's absolutely an all-rounder.
