Cricket

Written by Motts on November 12 2012

The Spring Carnival’s over so lets get onto the cricket.

Having watched over the weekend I’m starting to form some opinions about who should and shouldn’t be in the team. Punter and Lyon did themselves no favours while Cowan, Wade, and Pattinson should all be locked in for the summer.

On the sidelines you’ve got Mitch Starc who, as a southpaw quick, should definitely get a run at some point and Khawaja, who they were having trouble stopping down in Tassie.

You got any thoughts on the situation that might assist the selectors in picking the 2nd test side?

  2. 1. David Warner
    2. Ed Cowan
    3. Shane Watson
    4. Ponting only because the selectors are too scared to drop him if not Doolan or Quiney could come in here
    5. Michael Clarke
    6. Mike Hussey
    7. Matthew Wade
    8. Maxwell
    9. James Pattinson
    10. Peter Siddle
    11. Mitchell Starc

    Only included maxy as we have 4 quicks plus a spinner who can bowl better then their spinner as shown in the practice game

  3. It’s time to drop David Warner. The guy is quite simply not a test level player. His last 10 scores scores with the bat are: 180, 8, 28, 42, 22, 29, 17, 50, 11 and 4. Take out his 180 and his average drops to just under 22. Stick to pajama cricket with your reverse sweep.

  4. Adelaide Test team should read:

    1.Cowan (a lock in for the summer)
    2.Watson (if fit to bowl otherwise Warner in but on notice)
    3.Quiney (if 2 failures Khawaja replaces him for Perth as he’s 30 already)
    4.Ponting (needs to stay until return leg of Ashes then replaced with Khawaja)
    5.Clarke (turned a nation’s opinion around)
    6.Hussey (same as Punter but could go beyond Ashes)
    7.Wade (Careful mate Hads form is screaming at you)
    8.Pattinson (great to see accurate spearhead with attitude)
    9.Siddle (more vic attitude)
    10.Lyon (Pity about Holland and White told to pull finger out with his leggies pls)
    11.Starc (need the variety of left armer and his form can’t be ignored)
    12th man:M.Marsh (so he had a drink for his 21st get real..talent
    (Henriques on standby)

    By end of Ashes I’d expect Khawaja to be in team at 4, Holland as our spinner and Cummins if he can stay fit, don’t see who for though.
    Hughes and Johnson need to keep performing alot more to sway a recall
