    or even smith at 8 with mcgain dropping out but I don't think smith can be the top spinner maybe with clarke and white giving him a hand?

    Mcgain has 1 match and figures of 1/117 this season.

    He has worse figures than beer

    Ponting's ruled out so Clark will be captain. It may be the shake up he needs. I'd move him up to three or down to five as well.

    Why the anti-Hughes sentiment? He was our best batsman last innings until Runny McRunout did his trick. Hughes was unfairly dumped once, why do it again when so many others have failed.

    I'm not sure about Khawaja. He has great figures but from what I've seen of him, doesn't tend to be at his best in big games. Ferguson might be the safer bet & give Usman a run through the 20 & 50 over stuff to see how he handles internationals.

    Smith needs to persisted with. No point destroying his confidence now. There's only one test left before a big break. Playing Sydney will be a good experience for him & may be what he needs. It can't hurt playing on a ground he knows.

    Watson
    Hughes
    Hussey
    Khawaja
    Clarke
    Ferguson
    Haddin
    Smith (I would prefer O'Keefe but agree that dropping him now achieves nothing beneficial)
    Johnson
    Siddle
    Cameron
    12th Beer (so he can pick up his automatic $200k+ per year CA contract and highlight the selectors stupidity)

    If we were picking on form look no further than Damien wright He missed the first half of last season with a persistent calf injury, but enjoyed an extraordinary finish to the season, claiming 35 wickets from six matches at 14.34.

    People want a ground up rebuild,without Ponting might as well go like this

    Hughes is agressive but bad,why not give a go to a noted slogger much like they do in the west indies (Dont tell me you dont love Gaile)?

    Maybe replace Nannes with Alister McDermott and yeah,White in for Jacques so the side looks like

    1  Watson
    2  Warner
    3  Khawja
    4  White
    5  Hussey Capt
    6  Haddin  VC
    7  Hauritz (Better spinner,better batsman than Smith)
    8  Johnson
    9  Siddle
    10 Bolinger
    11 McDermott (like father like son? if he's half as good as craig was his better than we have got)

    And make the pitch a road for sydney,hopefully a Queensland road,NSW roads have way to many potholes,in theory we could be on 350 by the end of day one,if we get all out at say day 2 lunch,we'll be over 600

    Australia would get investigated for match fixing if they picked Shane's team.
