Stoinis played... so if you want the same side he will be there

One of the two is passable, thought he didn't play, although he didn't have to do anything so that's a positive. Enough teasing with Maxwell, in major events when does he actually turn up? He's old now too, Marsh is in way better form they are basically the same player albeit Marsh doesn't bowl much but neither was Maxwell. Green at 4/5. It's a nicely balanced side.

A" fully fit "Maxwell would be one of the first selected for white ball cricket still.

Which is ridiculous it's been YEARS since he's don't anything in a big tournament. Marsh won a t20 WC off his own bat recently. Marsh at 4 seems a logical compromise when Warner unfortunately comes back. One of Stoinis/Maxwell, and on form Stoinis has been way better. The rest pick themselves.

It seems you have a short memory.Before he broke his leg was one of the best fieldsman in the world,a handy part time spin bowler and as a batsman one of the most attacking batsman in the world who was required to play the big shots later in the innings.Most likely would have gone to India with the test squad if this accident had not happened.Test days most likely over but when fully fit will still be considered for white ball cricket for Australia again.

He’s done nothing in major tournaments in fact I’ll say he’s been close to our biggest disappointment when major events happen. Stoinis is a better bet and I’m hardly sold on the bloke would rather have Hardie in but they won’t this close to a WC.

Hardie done nothing of late and Stoinis is always out injured.

Short and Turner should be in the squad wc but don’t think they’re in the eleven.

Marsh should open if Davey isn’t playing and Green should bat 4 as he can play that anchor oel

Great calls here. The bloke averaged 38 with the bat at a T20-like strike rate of 138 against INDIA (not some minnow) across his entire ODI career, stupid call to say he doesn't show up. He'd be first picked if fit.

Not sure I am sold on the Matt Short hype yet, he has had a few good months but up until that has had 7 or 8 seasons of not much. Hopefully can kick on and continue as he is for a decent period of time.

Australia played at this ground in 2017 but were beaten in a rain reduced match. Were set a target of 161 in 21 overs but fell short.

India have also won 6 of their last 7 on this ground in ODIs. So it would be quite an achievement for Australia to win and clinch the series.

Would stick with Warner for the WC as much as I hate the campaigner he’s still probably in the best ODI opening combo, but then it’s goodbye. If he gets anymore test cricket I’ll spew, but I know they will pick him to go and embarrass himself in the Ashes and probably beyond. At least that might bring his average down to a level more reflective of his ability.

Interesting to see how they juggle the bowling attack for the WC. Starc and Zampa first picked. Abbott could be a wildcard with his as Mark Waugh says ‘clean hitting’. Would find it hard to leave a bowler the quality of Cummins out to pick Agar, these decks won’t be Indian test decks. Hoping Maxwell is fit to bowl, or Short out of left field. Definitely not as destructive a bat as Maxwell but better with the pill
