    It’s both their fault, if I had my way Swepson would play in Brisbane

    Swenson would get smacked around if anything he should have bowled in Sydney.

    Wade averages less than one run more than Head this series even though Head has a career average far better than Wade. But Wade offered to open it's ok if your No.5 averages 30 with the bat.

    dont know if you caught the shield game early in the season between Qld and the Bloooos

    Swepson took 10 wickets I think it was and looked pretty good, Lyon may have taken one or two but even the lowly Queensland batting line never looked in any danger.

    When they played side by side its chalk and cheese

    Can use stats to manipulate debates till the cows come home..

    for eg.

    Wades overall average includes when he was keeping in his previous life.

    No5?
    Leading into the 3rd test match Wade averaged 45.00 at no5

    Heads average ballooned up significantly when we played SL in 2 tests at home this time last year.

    Having said that Wade should be punted. I’d give Henriques a crack as he is the only logical one in the squad bubble, for no other reason than we have no one else, and I refuse to believe he will do as badly as either Wade/Head

    We can’t win at the Gabba then we need some series changes to the coaching staff, playing roster, captaincy etc...

    India decimated by injuries and no Kholi

    Pucovski is a very possible out for us.

    If so does Wade open again?

    If India win the toss and bat I feel like they could break us given the big innings late in Sydney. Have concerns being able to bowl them out twice but we will bounce back.

    We’ll be sweet. It’s very rare our bowlers let us down. I can’t see it happening 2 Tests in a row.
