He was just highlighting the hypocrisy of the statement when Marsh is a proven ODI performer and Handscomb isn't. Both deserve their recall due to ODI/List A form
A fun fact about the current top 10 ODI all rounder rankings. Mitch Marsh has a comfortably superior record than all bar 2 in batting and/or bowling. The two in question are Shakib Al Hasan and Angelo Mathews.
Fair to say I am not impressed. As a Melbourne Stars foundation member this happens to us every year. We lose 4 players this year our best 4 players in the team and we have to play the top of the ladder Hurricanes too which HAVE NO PLAYERS SELECTED. This is ridiculous. They take our captain and vice captain we have no other leader in our team so what are we going to do now??? I am so angry with the selectors and this decision that they have made.
Can they just leave Glenn Maxwell out of all these 1 day teams and T20 and give him a decent go of playing the longer version of the game which includes test cricket.Potential test cricket wise the selectors have stuffed him up but perhaps I am showing my love of the" longer version of the game" instead of this short term stuff.
That's fair. It will be much harder to narrow it down once Smith and Warner come back in.
Also going to be interesting to see who gets the nod for the bowlers spots given the selectors hard on for the big three quicks
e best off-spin bowler in the world and we've noted how successful teams around the world have been using a two pronged spin attack in the right conditions in white ball cricket, something we are very mindful of heading to the World Cup," Hohns said.
Not even close, they always pick random selections before a WC before seemingly changing tack and going back to what they had wanted the last 4 years. The fact is 1/3 of the final squad isn’t playing this series
Good to see Lynn dropped, such a myth at international level
