Was a shame about Reid. Never really thought our mainstays around that time, big Merv and McDermott, were all that good.

Patto took player of the series against the Kiwis shortly before the Indians toured. The wickets were bowler friendly from memory (unusually for Aus). Hope he gets through all right, it looks unlikely now that our other young bowler, Cummins will ever have a test career.

.... and from what I've seen he looks the best of the lot.

You have real issues with the fitness of your quick men, Starc, Pattinson and Cummins all crocked (Siddle too). I can't believe that the back ups will be potentially as good as that trio. Certainly Hazelwood and Bird are steady but not special.

In test cricket Hazlewood will be the best of the lot by some way. Bird is an Aussie Sidearse. Neither Pattinson nor Cummins will have long international careers. Not sure on Starc either.

Long in terms of number of matches. Both will probably be in and out of the side over many years. Is Cooley still around the Aussie set up? Didn't he **** over a generation of English bowlers through remodeling their actions? Is he doing the same for his home nation?

I liked Merv a lot, I mean who couldn't like a man who shouts "tickets please" not long after being called being called a fat bus conductor by Javed Miandad and then getting him out! He got a lot of his wickets on bluster rather than ability. McDermott was a better bowler, especially later in his career but I'm not sure that he was necessarily that quick from recollection.

Australia's handling of Cummins as a youngster was a joke, when they shunted him around t20 matches and gave him a test match way before he was ready physically. It is quite tragic.

The Kookaburra ball was always being changed in the recent Tests, sometimes three or four times. Good news for Dukes. Far better ball and I am sure the bowlers will prefer it.

'It is possible also that a white Dukes ball will be used in the Matador Cup domestic one-day tournament at the start of each season'.

Maybe one day we will see a white Dukes ball in ODI's and 20/20s.

Remember Mark Butcher on the verdict once. He said he took a Duke ball to Australia for practice and found out it fell apart on Aussie pitches.

It won't be the same as used in England. Dukes looking to make it more durable. Can't expect the same results as you get in England. I think we found the ones used in the WI much better than the Kookaburra.

ODI squad for WI - Steven Smith (capt), David Warner (vice-capt), George Bailey, Nathan Coulter-Nile, James Faulkner, Aaron Finch, John Hastings, Josh Hazlewood, Travis Head, Usman Khawaja, Nathan Lyon, Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Mitchell Starc, Matthew Wade, Adam Zampa.

Lyon has only played 10 ODIs so he will want to nail down a place.
Glad to see there is no Richardson, Boland, Tye. They didn't look like they were international class.

Not sure why Hastings keeps being picked, he should be playing rugby.

how does nathan coulter nile get paid to play cricket for Australia? almost as confounding as two marsh brothers (the anti-Waughs) getting contracted.

Siddle is lucky, but I guess he's a good guy to have around the squad. Odd that Victorias two stars of the Shield final didnt get a look in (travis dean and peter hascomb) performing in the final (the closest thing approaching test level cricket in the world) used to count for alot, now it seems you just have to have the last name Marsh and you're set.

Quite a few injury prone players in that list; Starc, Siddle, Pattinson and Cummins. Haven't seen anything of Shaun Marsh to suggest he should be in the side but Mitchell Marsh looks good enough.

Can't help feeling 20 players getting central contracts is about 4 too many. Especially when Hastings can get one.

Imagine 4 or so of the England contracts had been given to bowlers like Alex Tudor, Chris Tremlett, Simon Jones and Steve Finn and then think whether 16 would be enough.

Scott Boland (27) replaces Hastings in the ODI tri series tour of the WI.

6 ODIs 5 wickets at 75.80 econ 6.53 s/r 69.6

Hastings isn't that hot either.
