Strange selections for the One day matches. I feel like Pucovski and Patterson are wasted in that format when we could have sent guys like Heazlett, Mcdermott or Weatherald who have all had really promising starts to their List A careers. Need kids like that playing as much 50 over cricket as possible seeing as they get **** all chances outside of a handful of JLT matches every Spring.

The opener spot is difficult, my only concern with Patterson is he isn't going to be opening in the tests so seems a waste him playing there

Wades not a first class opener I agree, but of the options, there isn't a perfect solution

For those 2 its more about being around the squad for the entire trip I'd imagine and CA limiting how many people they have to drag out there.

Seems pretty pointless picking Wade for the ODI A side now. Didn't give him a chance leading up to the WC so at his age what's the point. Is he going to be around for the next WC? Pretty doubtful.

I mean, who else would they pick? Inglis, Whiteman and Bancroft are average in the format, Peirson hasn't made a run in any format this year, Nevill and Paine are a similar age and Gotch struggled in the JLT this year

I assume all of Burns, Labuschagne and Siddle weren't considered for the A team as they have county deals so will already be playing over there.
Among others, yes
“We have Joe Burns, Cameron Bancroft, Marnus Labuschagne, Matthew Renshaw, Peter Siddle and Daniel Worrall in our sights but they have not been included in the squad and will continue to play through this period with their county teams," Hohns said.

I'd have liked to see Josh Phillipe get a go in the 50 over side personally.
