    Yes we can point fingers at Mitch Dud Marsh but when does this flat track bully get questioned?

    Has the bloke made an overseas score outside of South Africa?

    And he's our VC somehow

    He's utterly useless when the ball does something and he keeps playing the same shots and getting out...

    He hasnt scored an overseas test century since the uae tour 2.5 years ago

    I think that is starting to become an issue

    Massive issue- Renshaw has shown you can stay in and score runs...what dies Warner do? Blind dumb slogging..."oh it's the way he plays". Stuff that he should know better by now.

    Warner is such a flat track bully it's not funny

    He is definitely and issue on overseas tours. But the other issue is that he is still the best we've got. There are not many state cricketers that are demanding a spot in the Test team.

    One problem is we don't have a 6 or 7. For the next test I would try Warner at number 6. Elevate S Marsh to opener and put Khawaja at 3.

    At 35 years old?

    I would prefer to invest in Joe Burns.

    Rogers was well over 30 when he came back into the side. Cowan is in awesome form....as a short term thing we could do worse.

    for 1 or 2 tests if we were desperate, a bit tongue in cheek because his current form is pretty good

    can you imagine Joe Burns defence in India ? he cant defend a straight ball on our pitches

    His fielding has been horrible, has dropped some dollies

    Needs to pull his finger out and contribute in the 3rd test

    Wasn't Bancroft's name being thrown around pre Renshaw?

    How's his form been?

    I don't think he should be dropped but he really needs to score an overseas test century.

    He needs a kick in the arse. His attitude to batting stinks at the moment, zero application IMO. He needs to demonstrate more than one gear...his ton vs NZ at Hobart all those years ago was an excellent knock, so he does have application in him.

    He's always been a ridiculously overrated fielder IMO. Good on the ground but can't throw for shit and hit and miss hands.

    It's not great that Cowan is one of our better options, shows our stocks aren't too healthy.

    Burns would be great in India...a play and miss in Australia is coming off the middle in India.

    I didn't realise it was that long since his last overseas ton.

    I hope he does get a big score in the next test and a quick scoring one like he usually does.

    Ed Cowan for David Warner? The Australian selectors aren't THAT stupid boys. Cowan and Renshaw as a combination is way too stifling.

    Look over Warner's dismissals on this tour. I wouldn't put it all down to blind slogging. If anything Warner has been very subdued on this tour.

    I'll back him for a big one.

    FYI, Shaun Marsh can open...
