    Thanks BAD

    Really happy to see Henry Hunt added to the A team.
    Looks to be a fine player and very sharp in the field.

    Decent test squad. Khawaja deserves the chance after his start in shield cricket.

    Can see Starc not playing every test and possible Lyon making way

    I think the possiblity is Starc not playing any test. He needs conditions to really suit to offer anything and I feel it is time for someone else to follow Cummings and Hazelwood, rather than a guaranteed lift in the run rate to relieve any pressure on England.

    Starc is a lock for the Adelaide day-night test. He is comfortably the best pink ball pace bowler in the world.
    We are the goon squad and we're coming to town. Beep Beep.

    I think his best is past.

    The fact that I have posted this should guarantee that he takes 10 wickets at least in Adelaide.

    Hopefully we get to see Jhye Richardson get a chance to deliver on his potential, at least in 1 or 2 tests.

    Do you think he is next in line or would it be Neser?

    Close call I would think. I would prefer Richardson being younger and quicker, but Neser couldn’t have done much more to get his chance.

    He is no automatic selection for mine in any other test this summer except for Adelaide D/N

    Looks like we will need a new captain and possibly new keeper?

    I think the band-aid needs to be ripped off. Paine isn't the best gloveman in Australia, and its really been his role as captain that has seen him retain his position in the team. Now that he's stepped down as captain, I think we need to replace him with Alex Carey immediately.

    At times both are also handy late order batsman as well.

    What did Paine do? What was his text about?
