Absolutely right. Warner/Hughes/Kawajah is the weakest top 3 Australia has had for 25 years and possibly the weakest since immediately after WSC. Why is Phil Jacques not in the team?

Ian chappell, you are kidding me right, dropping Khawaja doesn't make any sense, he is one of the few batsman with the technique to survive this form of the game, your brother as a selector knew this, he averages above 50 in shield cricket, you have no basis to make such a statement. Agree with you regards dropping Hughes

First drop Ponting dude.

This is beyond ridiculous now. Ian believes in Ricky to deliver despite being a passenger in the aussie side for the last 2 years, yet on the other hand he thinks the young 'uns deserve the boot for their failures.
