    I pretty much agree with "Henry" Lawson on selection. Stuff this picking on potential crap. Pick the ones getting runs and wickets. The shield is the place for turning potential into performance. By either measure Shaun Marsh misses out.

    They might pick SSOS (second son of swampy!) He just missed out on 100 today and Bancroft did his chances no harm with 150no

    That's what you call stating your case.

    The Aussie selectors have lost their minds.

    Saw Brett Lee on telly tonight. Said selectors have gone with picking players in form. I agree with that. Bancroft, obvious and I suppose the argument could be made for Paine - even though he hasn't had the gloves. SoS has also been scoring well but how many chances do you get before your shield form doesn't win the argument any more?

    my club back in NZ kept on picking me through thick and thin-they had to-bar takings were the selection criteria!

    The selectors are idiots

    I saw Trevor Hohns on TV last week crapping in about how they’ve gone for best wicket keeper in Australia. He doesn’t even keep wickets for his state anymore! Darren Lehmann has scored a more recent Shield 100 than Tim Paine.

    Hilton Cartwright should feel dudded missing out to that imposter Shaun Marsh.

    TWF is a PG rated space. Jarg’s and I have discussed SMarsh at length via email though, those chats are not TWF friendly

    Seeya later Cooky - England 1/10.

    I got Starc @ $16 to take 10 wickets for the match. 1 down, 9 to go.
