So the squad has been selected and I'm not impressed. Squad David Warner, Ed Cowan, Phillip Hughes, Shane Watson, Michael Clarke (capt), Usman Khawaja, Steven Smith, Matthew Wade (wk), Glenn Maxwell, Moises Henriques, Mitchell Johnson, James Pattinson, Mitchell Starc, Peter Siddle, Jackson Bird, Xavier Doherty, Nathan Lyon. 1. Warner has a broken thumb yet we've only selected 6 specialist batsmen in a squad of 17 (which now days is a large squad for a test series). 2. Doherty is the second specialist spinner. The guy average over 44 in first class cricket and has always struggled to be successful in long form cricket. 3. Why pick Steve Smith and Moises Henriques? Surely they're at long odds to play. Steve O'Keefe would be a much better selection and should have been the second spinner on the tour with Beer injured. 4. Why pick 5 pace bowlers? It reeks of not wanting to upset anyone. Given that we should be playing two seamers and two specialist spinners, that's a lot of players who should be back in Australia playing first class cricket in preparation for the Ashes. My bet is that we'll pick three pace bowlers for the first test and Maxwell as an all-rounder and second spin option and it will backfire heavily.
