Looks like we were all wrong about the keeper and #6.

I think Renshaw has been treated poorly given how well he's done in his test career to date. Having said that Bancroft deserves his opportunity given he was picked to tour Bangers two years ago and then that tour was cancelled for security reasons.

Surely this must be Marsh's final chance? If he fails in Brisbane, then I imagine it's between Maxwell/Lehmann/Cartwright. But what happens if Renshaw gets a mountain of runs in the next Shield game, and Bancroft goes well in Brissy?

Paine is a surprise - I really thought they would go with Neville. I'm happy for Sayers to be named in the squad - he's worked hard and put up great numbers for several seasons now.

David Warner, Cameron Bancroft, Usman Khawaja, Steve Smith (c), Peter Handscomb, Shaun Marsh, Tim Paine, Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins, Nathan Lyon, Josh Hazlewood, Jackson Bird, Chadd Sayers.

How many "last chances" is that for Shaun Marsh now? 6, maybe more? C'mon seriously, he must have some dirt on one of the selectors or something because he's proved over and over he's not international material? I wouldn't worry about Renshaw, he' be back once Shaun Marsh fails once again!

Paine at keeper?? You could knock me over with a feather over that one. I don't know that you can call him the best glove-man in the country when he wasn't even keeping wickets for his state? Let's call a spade a spade - the selectors value batting over keeping. The Gilly legacy lives on.

Good to see Bancroft get a go, best of luck to him. Same for Sayers. The bowling line-up looks very strong actually! They can all move the ball around, but there's also plenty of fire and pace.

all these great young players like Lehman,and what do they do? recall Shaun Marsh for the EIGhTH TIME ffs.

give us a break.

how many chances for him? ffs he has compromising photos of G Chappell surely.

and a keeper who can't even make the Tassie team as keeper....

oi vay

why do they do these things.

Still wondering what Ferguson did wrong to only get ONE game where the whole team failed,compared to Shaun mr 8 times

OK you know what's really pissing me off today? All the references to Shaun Marsh being a "Veteran" and "adding experience to the squad". Fair suck of the sauce bottle!

Gee... a lot of hate for Marsh. He's not that bad.
Remember guys, the reason he left the aussie team last time was due to injury, and bear in mind no one was consistently playing well over in India anyway, apart from GOAT. He's proven himself in county cricket against all the best English bowlers, maybe this was what got him the gig?
That said, I didn't think he'd get selected either. :shrug: I assumed #6 would be Bancroft TBH.

And Paine? Wow. A real surprise that one. I have no idea what they were thinking there.

The bowling line-up look very very good.

Shaun Marsh only scores test runs when it's his absolute last chance to keep his place. He had his chances. Wetherald, Ferguson, Lehman to name just 3 from just SA that deserve a call up before him

And if Warner misses this test due to his injured neck, guess who his replacement will be?

If you guessed one of these guys, you guessed wrong. They've called up Glen Maxwell.

That is so scary it is funny.. Is he serious with this line -

"Mate, if we’re suddenly going to start picking players based on actual fitness and performances that have already happened then we may as well throw our entire selection policy out the window."

WTF is their policy ?

Jeremy I think you may have missed that the article is satire :) But the situation is such that the reality is in danger of overtaking the satire. The article is only slightly exaggerated ....

I used think I stood some chance of picking the test squad the selectors came up with each season, or at least if I got it wrong, I could understand what they were doing. I have no idea what is going on.

This is typical.
They say they go for youth- OK, so we pick Renshaw (age 21) over Ed Cowan (age 35 but stacks of runs)- but chuck Renshaw when he struggles a bit.
Bring in Bancroft (age 25) OK., I guess.
But Cowan doesn't even get a look in as a reserve/ replacement when Warner gets a neck injury. Bloody Glen Maxwell (age 29) does. Obviously, a mountain of runs doesn't matter. Seriously, calls the purpose of the Sheffield Shield into question BTW.

Shaun Marsh is 34. Ed Cowan is 35.

So why do we repeatedly look past the top run scorer in the shield because of his age and then resurrect a guy who is almost as old at every opportunity?

Don't even start me on the keeper.

Look, I hope these guys do well. I just don't understand any of it.
Happiness is .......a Telebass and 500W.

Jarryd Hayne's latest dream is to bat at #6 for Australia. It's probably his most realistic dream so far!

It's far too political. Cowan scores runs but his style and technique is deemed boring, so he gets overlooked. Yet they were ok with Chris Rogers for years?

The Marsh boys are living off their dad's political pull. End of story! Which is ironically now probably working against young Lehman.

It's all academic anyway . If we win the ashes, it'll be on the strength of our bowling attack.
