Right I really need some middle order players and I've gone with a couple of test centurions:

Pick 30: Kurtis Patterson - The man with the test average of 144. Would still likely make an Aus A First class side so happy to pick him up with pick 30.

Pick 31: Glenn Maxwell - A bit of a forgotten man in the Shield but averages 44 in the comp combined with some handy offies. Also elite fielder, x-factor etc. etc.

1. Joe Burns

I’ll go Chadd Sayers in the hope that not every game is at Karen Rolton Oval. Plus he deserves to play in a team that can bat longe than 50 overs.

Will go the tactical selection and take my spinner, Jon Holland. Probably the best in the Shield after Swepson.

Tossing up between two options here, but I don't think there is a huge difference between my two options with the bat, whereas only one offers anything with the ball, so with that in mind I'll stock up on a second one and take Mitch Marsh.

Callum Ferguson.

Happy to send this one to the third umpire for adjudication, given he retired last week but has actually played Shield cricket this season, unlike a lot of others selected.

I mean he's played Shield games this year so it seems fair to me, unlike SO'K who retired over the off season
