There’s a difference between US and them.

Though half of them,reckon Willie has “sources” :roll: ,that believe he can get out of his self confessed mess!

Could it lead to a brand new Free Willy campaign?Movie?Sequel?

I said at the start of this test not picking Starc was dumb.

Keeping Warner was just as bad.

Bowling first on a dry deck with the worlds best offie on hand...

All conspired to stuff us up this game.

Paine is an average captain at best...
Australia have NFC when to review a having 4 Watson’s in the team...
It’s a bloody conundrum. What to do with Paine? I’d rather see Alex Carey in the team - excellent bat, and very good keeper. But who will captain the side???

We lack decent leaders outside of Smudge.

As bonkers as this may sound, I would consider bringing in Aaron Finch as captain (I think he’s a good one) and bat him in the middle order. A possible team for our summer...

D. Warner
U. Khawaja
M. Labuschagne
S. Smith
A. Finch (c)
M. Wade / M. Marsh
A. Carey
P. Cummins
M. Starc / J. Pattinson
N. Lyon
J. Hazlewood
TBH at the moment I’d drop Warner for Bancroft. Bancroft hasn’t set the world on fire, but gives us left right option...

If Marsh is in, has to be as a batsman that bowls not a bowler that bats, therefore I wouldn’t have him.

Other than those 2 changes, pretty reasonable...
