    MMarsh drafted into the squad, talk of him replacing Handscomb.

    Like SMarsh, MMarsh has been really good with the bat this season domestically so hopefully he can kick start his test career like his older brother, plus his bowling will be very handy. Perth, MCG and SCG are expecting to be batting decks

    Bayliss mentions that poms will be unchanged

    Proof that Australia are obsessed with trying to find an all rounder

    Called it. Was a shoe in from the moment Lehmann endorsed him in public.

    Not a real Mitch Marsh hater. Just hate the morons running the show.

    Couldn’t wait to get Darsh Jr back in.


    Absolutely laughable these selectors are, bloke averages 21 after over 20 tests let’s get him straight back in FFS!!

    Should be Maxwell if they’re going to bring someone in for Handscombe.

    Marsh is a bit of a joke, but Handscomb was always going to be found out in test cricket - he's talking a big game though, is he also smashing it in the nets?

    No doubt we'll see countless articles this week with Australians going on about how great sledging is. A more immature team I've never seen.

    The selectors will find any way to get little Marsh back in the side. In form or not. He must have nude pics of Lehmann.

    Would anyone here honestly be surprised if the one they dump for Darsh II is Uzzie?

    I'd be a little surprised. Would completely screw around with the batting order.

    If someone is to be dropped its Handscomb. Marsh brothers at 5 or 6 and they get their extra bowler.

    With that said, its the Australian selectors we are talking about here. Maybe they'll bat Mitch Marsh at 3...

    Matt Wade should have taken Handscombs place

    Yup.

    At least Maxwell has scored a Test tonne.

    Hmmmm...

    What would you call the way Broad carries on when he takes a wicket, practically dancing down the pitch to get in the dismissed batsman's face?

    Passion, sure - but ridiculously immature, imo.

    Awesome move by the selectors to bring Shitchell back to reinvigorate the series. CA will be counting the $'s when the Marshtards level the series at 2-all. Move over Gary, The COAT (crappiest-of-all-time) is back!

    Wade couldn't even hit them in nets.

    Handscomb will be left out I predict...

    S.Marsh to move up to 5.......

    Double Darsh failures shouldn't surprise.....
