    What next, one of Haddin and Paine will keep in every game as well.

    Your cricketing knowledge knows no bounds, who'd have thougth the only specialist spinner picked would play in India.....

    Not at all, just wondering when you will actually make a post on cricket which shows you have 1% of a clue as to what you are talking about.

    Oh sorry I didn't realise David Hussey was in there too.  According to Shane he is our specialist test spinner.

    **** these selectors are dumb.  Hussey is out with a hamstring, so they call in Shaun Marsh to replace him. 

    Having just named the world cup squad, wouldn't you pick someone actually in the squad as the replacement, so they can play as much as possible before the tournament? Picking Tim Paine to play as a batsman seems to sensible thing to do.

    Im just hoping Tait can get 2-3 wickets in his first 4 overs because he will be useless after that

    I stand corrected that there are no people dumber than the selectors.  Paine has been picked as a back up batsman as well as a keeper.  He usually opens in one dayers.

    I'd rather Tait than Binga to be honest. I also quite like Hastings' selection, he's a pretty decent cricketer from what I've seen. Can't believe Hauritz has been "recalled".

    I hope our batsman are in form because I think our attack is going to leak some runs. If Tait and Lee don't get it coming down at around 160 they are going to go for 7+ an over, and we all know what Johnson's consistency has been like this summer.

    Bam??

    i know Hastings is from Sydney idiot.

    My point is Hauritz is from Qld, Watson is from Qld and moved to Tasmania, they both now play for NSW, it was a joke at lsz's comment.

    i'm sure he got it, unlike yourself who just has NFI.

    there are a heap of NSW "refugees" floating around other states, its simply because of the larger population.

    Krejza, Lockyear, Cowan from Tassie
    Obrien, Christian, Lang from SA
    Hastings has been mentioned.

    they all have them,

    please dont respond to my posts any more, you bore me as you have clearly no idea.

    as my Nanna used to tell me.

    "Dont argue with fools, they will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience"...
