Paine is the best keeper in the country bar none.

All depends on that bloody finger as to if its an inspired selection.
Interesting that they say that. Can they explain why Tassie consider Wade a better option as keeper than Paine?
I could spend hours over a beer with you explaining why sports administration at high levels in Tasmania is beyond f***** Benny.

Hilariously Tassie gave Wade the gloves to give him practice for the Ashes. Speaks volumes about his ability in comparison to Paine that the national selectors don't think Paine needed the game time.

Also this isn't totally out of the blue. Paine did keep very very well in the sub continet, albeit T20.

Let’s be honest about Paine. He hardly kept wicket over the last 2 years let alone this season so far. Doran was keeping for Tassie before Wade returned. In light of this, how do they say he is “the best keeper” in the country?

Coz his finger was stuffed. Its not anymore, if he was fit he'd have been in front of Doran no dramas.

Taken the first 4 balls nicely. :wink: :lol:

Not much action with the ball. Bounce seems low for a day one itch.

Benny listening to ABC the Paine selection has taken the guilt off Dirk for breaking his finger.

Good enough of a reason for me. :wink: :wink:

Sayers should play in Adelaide. At the expense of whom, I’ve got no idea. Gotta go in with Starc and Cummins. Hazlewood is a good option in the D/N test. Perhaps at the expense of Lyon, but the selectors won’t ever do that.

Listening to Kevin Pietersen commentate this summer is going to really test my patience.

Hazlewood gone 4 innings now without a wicket.

The problem is they're all similar. Good, but similar.

So when the pitch offers nothing we just have 3 x 140 km/h bowlers bowling straight up and down. Least Chad can swing the ball in any conditions, it seems anyway.

Yep, no argument from me.

Just think this dumb group of selectors won’t see it that way.
