    Kane Richardson, I haven't watch much of the bash but the bits I did he wasn't much
    I quite like Henriques but has his form warranted his selection?
    Surely no Mitch Marsh is a sign that he's done, his form has been great.

    Mitch not picked - that is an odd one

    The only thing I can think of is that there will be an extended squad to tour Pakistan for the test series and Marsh is the back-up for Green.

    I think this is a strong possibility and with the additional burden of WA borders, Marsh is probably being given a chance for extended time at home prior to the Pakistan tour.

    Because of the Covid-19 challenge I think it will be an 18 man touring squad (perhaps 17) rather than the normal 15 man squad.
    Instead of taking 2 spin bowlers it will be 3, Marsh will back up Green, Inglis will come in as the understudy to Carey and someone like Holt and/or Renshaw will be added to the batting line-up.

    Warner
    Khawaja
    Labuschagne
    Smith
    Head
    Green
    Carey
    Cummins
    Starc
    Boland
    Lyon
    Hazelwood

    Renshaw
    Holt
    Marsh

    Swepson
    Agar/Kuhnemann

    Inglis

    Who is Holt?

    Surely they will need another fast bowler rather than an extra spinner? Pakistan pitches are nothing like India, fast bowling rather than spin is more effective there.

    Henry Holt, SA opening batsman. Great fieldsman as well.

    You might be right about an extra quick rather than a spin bowler.

    Ah, I think you find his name is Henry Hunt.

    There is a Holt that has played a handful of games for NSW. I mean I know a NSW cap = a baggy green but I thought you had gone crazy.

    Are there any other players you would suggest for the tour of Pakistan?
