You talking about Mitch Marsh or Maxwell?
Both, neither are up to it.

At least when fit, Marsh's bowling is passable. Maxwell's bowling is pus.

Rather than bring in Lambuschagne or Maxwell to be the 2nd spinner they may as well use Head and bring in a recognised batsman at 6.

Pfffft, as if!

Fair enough, I'm just pointing out that Maxwell is a better bet than the current all rounder.

He would have been curly on the tracks in Perth & Adelaide in tandem with Lyon.

Alex Carey and Darcy Short are becoming my favourite cricketers. Mind you, haven't had a favourite cricketer since Martin Crowe and the wonderfully fantastic David Hookes. Well, except for Hodgey :) Oh and D. Gough.

Wonder how many people here realise that Alex Carey was a GWS Giants formation player. Captaining them and winning a b@f in the TAC.

Sheffield Shield career averages:

View attachment 600696

Just puttin' it out there.

Finch and Marsh have been given the arse. Going back to Handscomb after 1 Mickey Mouse big bash game. Ussie is going to open and Labuschagne is going to bat 3.

Let that sink in, a bloke with a 1st class ave of 33 is going to bat 3 whilst we have a bloke in Burns that has averaged over 50 in the last 2 years as an opener on the bowler friendly Gabba not able to get a gig.
