Shaun Marsh won’t be dropped and nor should he be. Finch, Mitch and Harris would all go first - none of these guys will ever be test cricketers.

Harris will last because he’s played three games but he’s slightly above average at best at shield level. Ni more, no less.

Yea I’ve seen enough if him before hand to say confidently he won’t make as a test cricketer. Smith, Warner and Bancroft will all be in the team by the start of the Ashes.

We need Smith. Not fussed about Bancroft and sincerely hope we’ve seen the last of Warner.

Harris will play in Sydney and in the Sri Lankan tests as well.He is being groomed to open for a long time.
Shaun MArsh will play without doubt.I heard one of the commentators say they should open with him.I don't agree.Leave him settle where he is.He has been the shunting tool for a long time.He has batted anywhere from opener to number seven.No wonder he is a bit rattled.
Finch will play but not open.
Laberchagne.... not sure what he has done to be named in the squad.
A big effort is needed from the boys to stop the Indians from winning the series.A draw is no good, we have to win.
Did any one hear Warnie have a crack at our quicks after the game today.He gave out figures that were quite damning.

Have often thought that our quicks (starc and hazel) need as much of a rev up as our batsmen.

Some interesting facts and figure handed out on our bowlers by Shane Warne after the third test. As another poster said here, the bowlers need a rev up as well.
