Surely they should ask Ponting to make a comeback. Hes clearly
still the best batsman apart from Clarke. The team would be
much stronger if he and Hussey were still playing for Oz.

Is SOK out of favour for non cricketing reasons? Its hard to see why
Doherty gets a central contract unless its for loyalty or essay
I was hoping they might pick Cosgrove, but apparently no one likes

Pattinson, Siddle, Hilf & 1 of Bird Starc or MJ would still on paper
be a reasonable pace attack. Pattinson seems to have some real pace,
and Englands batters certainly didnt enjoy facing Steyn last year.
Hasnt Cummins got a back problem which means he cant bowl?
