    With Ponting out til the start of the WC who bats at 3 in the ODIs?

    White who averaged 60 when replacing Ponting at 3 in England last tour?

    Or leave White in the middle order to prepare for WC and have Hodge slot straight in as a like-for-like replacement?

    This will be the true test of whether Hodge has been put into the never again basket.

    Yeah, probably the final test as far as he is concerned.

    If they aren't going to pick him with Ponting out for the whole series when he has scored hundreds galore at state OD level over the past 18 months then they never will.

    Fergusson and Marsh should be front of the line as a wings player, ahead of Smith Khawaja and Paine (especially Paine, f**king rubbish one day player)

    I'd rather him not play ODI cricket at all and keep him for the tests. We don't need our best prospect since Ricky Ponting to be burnt out inside 18 months by playing all the pyjama cricket along the way.

    Keep Clarke at 4 or 5 so he bats in the middle overs where he can work the ball around.

    Where would you put Hussey? After the 2 openers he would be the first player I'd pick in the ODI team.

    I'd play Khawaja just to get him more exsposure to international cricket.

    It wont hurt him. Used to be the done thing to give batsman a run in 50 over cricket before they played test cricket. PLaying 50 over cricket at the start of their test careers never hurt Mark Waugh and Ricky Ponting
