An average of 25 with the bat, and 44 with the ball.

He doesn’t deserve a spot in the team as a batsman. He doesn’t deserve a spot in the team as a bowler.

He isn’t an all rounder.

Head has 3rd highest average for the team in the series, it’s not great but still miles better than Warner

So, both teams have dropped a batsman for an allrounder which means both batting line ups will be weaker .... strange
Marsh for Head means Australia will have Warner opening, Wade at 5 and Marsh at 6 .... puts even more pressure on Labuschagne and Smith. Pommy bowlers will be smiling.
Woakes for Roy means England have Stokes, Bairstow and Butler at 4, 5 & 6 .... all batting 1 spot too high. Butler just started to show something at 7, but might struggle back at 6.

“It was a really tough call on Travis Head … we felt like we needed some extra bowling,” Tim Paine said.

“(Need) to look after our big fast bowlers.

“It’s not necessarily Travis being dropped. We’ve been really clear with Travis on why he isn’t playing this game.

“We had to make a really tough call on someone and it happened to be Travis.”

Oh **** off Paine you dud, we know Mitch is getting a game because Langer is looking after his WA buddies

Pretty common sense decision imo.

The selectors were always going to bring in an all rounder for the fifth test. They have made absolutely no secret they are going to manage the bowlers work loads this tour. In particular Cummins must be getting starting to get tired so really there was two options rest Cummins and bring Siddle/Pattinson in or play Cummins but bring the all rounder in. With no dead rubbers now they wanted to keep their star bowler in the side.

There was never going to be a complete reshuffle in the batting line up nor should there be. Labuschagne opening would have been a disastrous move. It was always going to be either Wade or Head to make way for the all rounder and Wade pips him this tour. Heads second innings in the last test was horrible, played 3-4 massive cover drives outside off he missed by a mile before eventually being bowled going for one to many.

Last two test innings, remembering Wade also has a ton in the first test.

Wade- 34, 16, 33, 0
Head 12, 19, 25, 0

Warner surviving is no surprise he is one of the very few world class batters we have at their best, the only other being Smith. With no real better option to replace him Langer wants to give him every single chance to succeed. Smith has made coming back to test cricket after a year off look easy. Smith is a freak, not the norm. If Warner fails in the early shield games and some other opener bangs the door down im sure he will be out the side.

Head will get back in the side and tbh if he wasn't from SA there would hardly be a fuss made on here.

Realistically we should be up 3-0 in this series, the selectors have got pretty much everything right this tour.

Isn't that the opposite. Now Marsh is in they can play Cummins because he wont be needed to bowl as many overs.

Would have thought that meant the extra bowling option if required but it could be looked at both ways

Looking forward to a solid 7 overs from Marsh to cap off his single digit score with the bat

Not agreeing at all with Marsh selection as going over old ground that simply has not worked but Travis Head,for all the potential he shows, needs to nail his position for keeps.

Think it’s more the fact he is being replaced by Mitch **** Marsh!
Would rather see Pattinson get a game as he can bat and bowl better than Marsh

Exactly right Jimbo, I understand why Head has been dropped but the fact that Marsh replaces him just shits me.

Head's technique this series has been terrible. Plants his front foot straight down the pitch against right armers bowling around the wicket, leaving a huge gap between bat and pad. I watched him the other night and thought it was only time before he got given out LBW, inside edge/bowled or bowled. I was right.
