Warners becoming very unreliable.
If I'm not wrong, he JUST made both the Test and ODI TotYs. The ICC clearly doesn't see it your way.

I didnt see myself talking for the ICC, where was that?
Another pathetic attempt today from Dave.

Are you stating that he doesnt have technical and mental issues at the crease?

If so youve got NFI.

My point was that your opinion that Warner is somehow not good enough is statistically inaccurate given that he was good enough to get into both Team of the Years and at the end of the day, that is what matters. Smith, by any and all accounts, SHOULD be deemed to have horrible technique as did Chanderpaul but that didn't matter at the end of the day. It's just the runs that you make that matters and in that sense Warner is doing fine.

AUSTRALIA SQUAD FOR SOUTH AFRICA TESTS:

Steve Smith (c), David Warner, Cameron Bancroft, Usman Khawaja, Peter Handscomb, Shaun Marsh, Mitchell Marsh, Tim Paine (wk), Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins, Nathan Lyon, Jackson Bird, Jon Holland, Jhye Richardson

So pleased that Richardson is in the squad. Lovely bowler to watch. 21 years of age. That's the ideal age to bring into Tests. Hope he gets to play but has only played 5 f/c games.

Surely the most surprising picks there are Bancroft and Handscomb. Whilst the latter is probably backup, Bancroft looks set to open against whatever Safa quartet they put out. I doubt that will end well.

I think the Aussie batting line-up now compared to 4 years ago when they last toured South Africa is a bit weaker as a unit. They had Rogers at the time as an opener, Michael Clarke as well. That said Smith is a better player now than then and he was bloody good then!

If anything SA has a stronger bowling attack now but weaker batting and quite markedly so.

Chad Sayers unhappy that 5-match Richardson was selected ahead of him.
He should be upset that Bird was selected instead of him. Bird, the Aussie bowlers said, was faster than any of the England bowlers and ended up bowling at 80mph and wicketless.

Australia coach Darren Lehmann described Sayer's as the 'logical choice' to replace Bird who injured his hamstring during Tasmania's Sheffield Shield clash with Queensland at the Gabba.

Bird will not tour if he is unlikely to be fit for the first warmup game of the tour which gets underway on February 22nd at Willowmoore Park in Benoni.

Was wondering if Sayers did play for Australia then he would be eligible for county cricket and Sussex are interested in signing him. Experience for the Ashes next summer?
