I see we are going with the Finch and Carey at the top again because you know it’s been a real hit so far....

I would completely change up the order perhaps having Khawaja and Handscomb opening and Stoinis at 3 where I think his batting style is better suited in ODI.

I would open with Maxwell

Glad the Lyon experiment is over, he can't bowl in this format. Zampa is a decent ODI bowler. It's a decent team, our middle order is ok, lower order is fine, it's just that our openers haven't fired. Finch needs to go on the attack and be more positive. Carey looks a good player but tends to have a brainfade that gets him out. Good temperment though.

Not playing our best bowlers is stupid. No one else is doing it. We never did it when we were good. They are young professional athletes. They are either injured or they are fit and should be playing. Most ridiculous thing I've seen, Hazlewood and Starc are in poor form and should be playing. Cummings looks really fit. Why hold them back? There's no evidence that this does bowlers any good at all.

Less lose deliveries from the bowlers I hope.
