WOW! Australia comes from 2 nil down to win the ODI series v India, world cup here we come.
Very entertaining series. Not usually a fan of the ODI but I’ll be tuning in now for sure come the World Cup. Be interesting what they do with Warner and smith

They simply have to be in the squad, they are 2 of the best batsmen in world cricket.

Looking solely at the squad for the Pakistan series I'd be going-

In- David Warner, Steve Smith.
Outs- Shaun Marsh, Ashton Turner.

Never been a fan of Marsh, and unless Turner tears up the Pakistan series one great innings isn't enough IMO.

No, they don't.

Quite frankly, I'd be happy if they were never picked for Australia again.

I think they have paid their penance. IMO the penalty was appropriate although completely out of proportion to the precedent set in other cases of ball tampering that have occurred over the last decade or so.

The penalty was harsh which was fine with me but I don't believe in condemning and punishing them for the rest of their sporting life.

So would 10, but I’m trying to be measured.

In related news, Williams are a dumpster fire. Might see the 107 percent rule discussed a bit this year.
Better in fp2. They will improve this year, two inexperienced drivers killed them last year. Kubica hopefully can be competitive and develop the car, Russell is a real talent.

Kimi going well.

You never issued a retraction on your claims that Kubica will never get a seat again ;)

Yeah well, probably more a product of where Williams are at. Russell seems a lot quicker, Kubica is there to develop the car, I hope he can be competitive. I hope Wiliams can be competitive they are really scrambling.
