Never in a pink fit.
The fact that Mitch Marsh gets a look ahead of Maxwell is deplorable. It won't matter anyway as its just 12th man but still its a joke that they would pick mitch ahead of MAXY.
They will use excuses such as Perth is a bouncy wicket so they are going with the extra pace buts that is all just BS.
They picked Mitch because they like him as a person and left Maxwell out because they don't.
So with Mitch Marsh likely to get the nod over Handscome does that mean that Marsh plays the rest of the series now and Handscome is gone? Geez its tough being an aussie batsman. Poor bloke fails in 2 tests and he's hooked. And he's failed under difficult batting conditions. Watch Mitch now come in on a road in Perth where everyone makes bucket loads of runs. And its his home pitch.
Ask Callum Ferguson what it's like trying to make a good impression under difficult conditions; he only received a single opportunity in Hobart last year.
Handscomb's deficiencies were ALWAYS going to let him down. He shouldn't have been picked in the first place.
Since THAT Test at Bellerive Oval:
It makes a mockery of the selectors' alleged desire of shaking things up.
