    I think Harris is average, but I sympathise with him here. He's come up against some shit hot bowling attacks his whole test career and now the lesser attacks come round and it's Plodcroft and Burns getting first crack.

    I agree, but so is Bancroft, Oozie, Burns, Wade, Handscomb et al yet they have all been rotated in and out of the team, and when one gets dropped they bring one of the other nuffies back in

    its just sign of the times, cupboard is bare and clueless selectors

    Paine is another average performer, although he can keep but he is only in the team because he is skipper, Carey's form has been very good with the bat but if we drop Paine for Carey then there really in no one else to skipper the team till Smith's suspension is served.

    Its a pretty poor situation but hey, we are doing very well in the T20 world rankings

    I’d pick Paul Hauff after 1991.

    careful what you wish for Darsh is close to a return

    Tougher to rort when it's a like for like replacement and the match referee had to approve the substitution.

    So you can't replace a quick with a spinner on a turning deck for eg. Nor can you bring in an extra bat.

    Of course it means you've basically got 15 man sides...

    I can't see it being rorted.

    NRL has a ton of incidental contact to the head which can be used to fake an HIA test and sub a tired player off.

    It's pretty rare for a batsman to get sconned which is what it would require to bring in the concussion sub.

    The only way I can possibly see it being rorted is head on ground or collision issues... IE replacing an injured but not concussed player by dodgying up the HIA somehow. "Yeah, Billy has torn his ACL but he's also got concussion so therefore we can replace him" kind of thing

    And that's going to be so rare as to be meaningless in a game like cricket

    Can we get a sub for Hohns? He's gotta be concussed given the stuff he's dribbled in the last couple of days

    James Pattinson may not contest his charge.

    Hoping Neser gets a test debut, he’s perfect for the Gabba.

    Starc
    Cummins
    Hazelwood
    Lyon

    It's pretty simple. Starc has 17 wickets @ 17 in the shield.

    Starc would have been picked anyway, Nesser should but it won’t happen

    Starc should be picked anyway. Lyon is more effective when he plays as well.

    Soft suspension though.
