    Test Squad

    Australia Test squad: Michael Clarke, Adam Gilchrist (vice captain), Matthew Hayden, Brad Hodge, Simon Katich, Justin Langer, Brett Lee, Stuart MacGill, Glenn McGrath, Ricky Ponting (captain), Shaun Tait, Shane Warne, Shane Watson.

    Martyn is gooorrrnnn, replaced by Hodge. Kaspa and Dizzy axed as well after disappointing Ashes series. I'd leave Hodge out and make Watson 12th Man, running with twin spin attack of Warney and MacGill, as it is at SCG. However knowing the selectors hell bent desire to find an Aussie equivalent of Flintoff, they'll give Watson a run and probably leave Tait out.

    One Day Squad

    Australia one-day squad: Nathan Bracken, Michael Clarke, Adam Gilchrist, Brad Hogg, James Hopes, Michael Hussey, Simon Katich, Brett Lee, Damien Martyn, Glenn McGrath, Ricky Ponting (c), Andrew Symonds, Shaun Tait, Shane Watson.

    Tait would be fruit for the sightboard at the SCG against that batting line up. I would like to see Hodge get a run, see new new blood in the batting lineup. But I agree more than likely Watson will play with Gilly moving to 6.

    I agree that Tait hasn't sold me yet, but Watson isn't a test class bowler either. We either run with 4 bowlers (Pigeon, Binga, Warney and MacGilla) and bring in Hodge, or we have to pick one of Watson or Tait.

    I notice that Tendulkar has pulled out of the World XI as his elbow still isn't right. Possibly Vaughan or Inzy Pie Eater to replace him.

    I don't know why they bothered with Martyn in the one day squad, don't think he will play.

    Surely they could have come up with a better pace attack than that for the Test side.

    On recent form, picking Harmison ahead of Jones is a joke.

    And Akhtar is streaky at best.

    Hogg is out of 1 Day squad, replaced by Cameron White. Tait is also gone, with Stuart Clark called into one day squad to replace him.

    No decision on who will replace Tait in Test side yet. Could be a reprieve for Kaspa or Dizzy, or hopefully they might give Bracken a go on his home turf.

    Well the ashes loss might just have motivated us to play our best cricket - dominating play in a team display.

    Watson very impressive taking 2 MOM awards
