He's a number 7, if he could bowl he might be an asset in that position but he's not.Come to think of it i think thats the best way to describe the Australian batting at the moment, they are all number 7s. Head, Stoinis, Maxwell and Carey, prove me wrong!!

Spot on. We have a heap of number 6-7 jobbers. The lack of quality batsman in the country is a massive concern.

Our lack of batting depth is the main problem in Australian cricket and has been for awhile.

4/146, Stoinis gone FFS, he was playing well. We won't win from here now.

Pretorious is that puss medium pacer who get wickets because everyone goes after him but is too slow for a batsman to really get ahold of him.

Tahir is an absolute crab, I took great enjoyment seeing Stoinis dispatch him. Even if we lose I would to see him go for 80 plus off his 10 overs.

So moving to the T20 games now I wonder if the selectors have learnt anything?

Aaron Finch (c)
Alex Carey (vc)
Ashton Agar
Jason Behrendorff
Nathan Coulter-Nile
Chris Lynn
Glenn Maxwell
Ben McDermott
D’Arcy Short
Billy Stanlake
Marcus Stoinis
Andrew Tye
Adam Zampa

There's a few names in there that I wouldn't expect to see for too long.

It's hard to even do a line up, not enough batsmen, I'd leave Zampa out along with Agar but one of them would have to play, there's a bit overkill with the medium pacers but none of our top 3 frontline quicks got a gig.

I can see Maxwell batting at 4 or 5, Tye would be the quick I'd leave out, wont really matter though as his one of his other two WA quicks are likely to snap something in the opening game, 4 overs is a lot to get through.

5 opening batsman, is there even 1 brain between all the selectors? To answer your 1st question LM, no absolutely not

The way our top order crumble you're basically an opener batting 5 anyway.

You watch them open with Agar now.

That was the best I've seen him bat in terms of stroke play I reckon. Obviously the situation demanded him to score quickly from the outset and it seemed as though that pressure to score quickly helped and stopped him from mucking around looking to get 'in'. His driving was the feature.

One of the few good things he has done since obligingly trotting over from square leg to sign the nurses outfit adorned by a very intoxicated and slightly less embarrassed Valleys07 on my bucks show on day 3 of the 4th test against India in 2012.

Later in the day he was trapped LBW to Khan for a duck. 3 times. It may have been my vision by that point. I got the best of Shaun Marsh that day, much like the Tassie crowd did last night.

Hopefully it is the start of a good summer for him.

Am I the only one who thinks Tye is overrated and tries too much. he has just gone for 55 off 4 overs and i can not remember a game (internationally) where he has done what he does in BBL.

I just don't rate him.

I've never rated him, he looks awkward when he bowls.

Right, let's get serious now. Great t oknsee some 4 day cricket around the place at the moment as the first test is only a matter of weeks away now. From what I can see this is not going to be an enjoyable summer of cricket for us, so buckle up everyone.

The batting looks thin, I mean real thin. Bowling still looks ok and they'll probably hold there own. But geez have we got enough runs in us?

Quite simply, no we don’t.

May as well prepare a few green tops. Our blokes will get knocked over if we dish up roads at any rate. We ain’t getting Kohli out on a road, so let’s get him ducking & diving.
