Just give me Neser in a baggy green at the Gabba and I won't ask for anything from CA ever again*

Steketee is the best bowler currently in the Shield and has been great this season carrying an attack missing players and rookies and having played one game at home.

Nesser on current form and with an injury doesn't deserve to be considered for the Test.

I agree. Steketee has always been decent but he seems to have levelled up this season and last as well, he's become an absolute threat with the ball.

To be fair though, the guy who has been banging the door down long and hard for the longest time is probably Boland.

Hopefully Bryant scores some runs, he was exceptional in grade cricket a week or two ago. Watched the highlights the other day and he was striking them as well as I'd ever seen. The Heat desperately need him back to his best.

It can be a make up for not selecting him when he had his best Shield season (18-19 I think?)

They did the same to Cutting. Everyone talks about form demanding selection and people are always jizzing themselves over these young guys like Richardson and they’ll play for Australia for a decade, yet anytime we have a performing Qlder, they never get picked.

They've also kept picking Sweppo for tour squads and never playing him, stopping him from playing Shield.

I feel like every time they see a maroon cap they automatically think Andy Bichel. Not a knock on the great man, but we all know why I’m bringing him up

I didn’t want to turn this into a conspiracy thread as well but it’s no secret Qlders get fucked over in the selection room. If it’s, at best, a 50-50 decision, then we still know the outcome.

I’d put some good money on the odds they’ll do it to Steketee as well anyway

If the bowlers can give a handy 20 or so runs then bonus, we can’t select bowlers on their batting.

Id prefer a wicket taker who can hang around abit. We don’t need 4 pseudo all rounders

Labuschagne got picked with a Shield average of 29.

Fixed.

I'd also wager that this is Paine's last summer.

Warriors 361

Bulls 1/20

If Bulls lose another wicket in next ten overs they’ll collapse.

I must’ve edited that part out naming recent Bulls players, knowing it would get picked apart as I don’t have an encyclopaedic knowledge of every Bulls players career, and I had that he was an anomaly considering his circumstances.

I must say I love your single sentence ‘insert stat x’ replies that you feel shuts down discussions you don’t want to entertain any longer

I wasn’t shutting anything down; I just thought of Labuschagne straight away and he shouldn’t have been playing Tests.

I really hope the Australian selectors have given up on Carey's leadership potential and realised that Peirson is the best keeper/bat in Australia. Followed by Phillipe.

I don't even think there is any doubt, well at least that Carey has fallen down the pecking order. I'd say in the short-term future, it is likely Peirson against Inglis - both are pretty good but I agree Peirson is the best keeper-bat in the country at present. The selectors do love their next big thing though, so it wouldn't surprise me if Phillipe gets in on the back of the short patch of good form he is in currently. I do rate him too but not yet.
