    I’ve seen enough of us bowling...and look at his figures especially this series. It’s time to move on and give some others a chance.

    2 spinners. I’d play a second spinner in t20’s. Not fussed whether that’s an Agar type or a genuine front liner.

    A bit harsh on Laxman. He averaged at least 37 against everyone bar England. Saved his side a match they had no right to save in NZ where they batted out 180 overs, made a century to chase 258 in the last innings against Sri Lanka after India were 5-70, kept them in a match against the WI in 06 when he made a fighting century at 3 after WI made 550 and allowed them to draw, 104 with his side 5-97 against SL on day one of a test which they ultimately won, 104 not out batting 5 - nobody below him passed 20 - against NZ after they made 630, 154 vs the WI in 2002 with his side 4-80, still 70 short Of making WI bat again.

    Not as prolific as Sachin, but when he scored runs - regardless of the opposition - it was usually when it counted.

    I reckon if he can score a triple ton this summer, he may even leapfrog the trio you mentioned in terms of acclaim within Australia.

    Lol I got here in time.. Mr Kohli is my all time ripper and he ain't stopping now..
    Finchy should just watch his back and get on board with treating Kohli with a bit of reasonable contempt..

    that is to be tough without being rude and knocking everyone in to the nether regions...

    giving everyone a chance means that you have kind of given up but then again it also can mean that you wash out the rubbish
    and then lash the 'flag to the mast' and just go for it..

    I've given up with our t20 or ODI sides being consistently good as we continually pick the same guys who shock horror keep failing. If someone isn't getting runs or bowling well, try someone else, especially this year when lets face it we aren't expected to win many.

    yeah but how many times to bring someone in every time. have at least four or five players and stick with them and then have another ten who you raffle each
    game. .. no matter whether you win or lose. stick with those five players and then muck around

    Look you don't chop and change 1 game in, 1 game out, but if you give someone 5 or so games, surely you can expect some performances. Now you don't expect someone to come in and be consistent every game but surely there has to be a line drawn somewhere. My main issue is our structure. 2 spinners just works in t20's, why we think we are better than anyone else and just play 1 and sometimes none is beyond me. Work your side around 2 spinners.

    two spinners is something that Shane Warne would ask for and yet there has to be the batsmen as well.

    just get a bit of agro without being stupid. ..

    That I agree with in terms of the batsmen- I wouldn't have Short or McDermott in the side, and Lynn is on very thin ice. I'd give Lynn one more series. I'd play SMarsh as opener, I don't like him in a test side, but he's probably the best t20 opener in the country- he should be in the side. I'd probably lean towards Ashton Agar as the second spinner/bat. It strengthens our batting as well.

    the point about the batsmen is that they either aren't given time in the middle or else that they are scared stiff of what they are trying to do, and they can't play
    to the level that they were chosen for. get some gravity and play to the crowd who are all behind the aussie players.. the bowlers aren't doing badly, I might say.

    it just needs a bit of cruising and Justin needs to level the fear about playing the opposition or else I haven't been doing my work well enough...

    Handling requires a bit more than just batting a few flies and bowling a few tropical red cats.....

    Could also help that we don't pick more than 2 opening bats- at the moment we have about 5 in our top order, all of whom struggle against spin first up. I'm still scratching my head over how McDermott is near a side? Exactly how did he earn this position? There has got to be a better option than him, his shot last night is exactly what I expected, out of his depth at this stage. Our selections need to be a bit smarter, SMarsh would solidify the top order, he's solid, and he can score big runs in t20's. Need a middle order bat, someone like an Aston Turner could be an option among others.

    3 spinners, Zampa, Maxwell, only leftie is Agar, play these guys together in t20 . until
    the world cup. At least they do not go 25 run per overs

    That's the way I'd be going as well, 2 front line spinners personally should be he backbone. Then you have Starc + use a Mitch Marsh (as much as I don't rate him one bit in a test match he's a good option in t20's) as your A/R. That's 2 quicks, plus 3 spinners including Maxwell. That's enough. You don't need 3-4 quicks in a t20.

    I'd argue khawaja is underrated in the t20 format. Everytime I've watched him play he has carved the bowling all over the place. Don't see why we can't go with marsh and khawaja at the top, finch @ 3 and than we go with the designated hitters in the middle order a choice of mcdermott, Maxwell or Lynn. Lynn shouldn't be anywhere near the top 3 imo. His role should be to plonk 40 off 20 late in the innings.
