Australia captain George Bailey has said it is "ridiculous" for him to think about an Ashes spot in the Australian summer on the basis of his one-day form in India - 318 runs in four innings. He also said he felt "frustrated" during his 98 against India in the washed-out Ranchi ODI and said Glenn Maxwell took the pressure off him in cracking 92 off 77 deliveries.

Although he's played 33 ODIs and 19 T20Is, Bailey has not made it to the Test side, and has a first-class average of 38.29 from 96 matches. His scores so far this series have been 85, 92*, 43 and 98 but he denied having one eye on an Ashes berth. "No, both eyes on the ball. That's very important. I think there's probably eight guys who have got a chance of playing in that Ashes team. It's so far away. It's just ridiculous to look at it. There's guys who will be at home playing Shield cricket, we've got Australia A games when we get back. It's a completely different format. Completely different surface. I don't think there's anyone out playing in these games thinking about that series."

Despite his superb ODI form, Bailey said he didn't feel at his best in Ranchi."I was dropped twice. I was a bit frustrated out there and found it quite difficult," Bailey said. "I think Maxy's innings was absolutely superb. We've seen his hitting before and we've seen how he can take games away late in an innings. But to come in with the team under pressure, with the ball still doing a little bit, I thought he summed it up. He still hit the boundaries and sixes but he hit them off the balls that he needed to hit. He didn't take any risks. They were smart shots in his areas. He took the pressure off me. When you've got someone scoring at the pace he was, it put the pressure right back on India. It was a great knock."

Bailey and Maxwell - who was put down twice as well, though off difficult chances - put on 153 in 22.4 overs after Australia had been reduced to 32 for 3 at one stage by Mohammed Shami. The fast bowler got the new ball to move around initially, but Bailey said Maxwell's arrival changed things. "I thought Maxwell found it conducive to strokeplay. It was still a good batting wicket. Probably what it did that the other wickets haven't done is it swung and seamed and spat a little bit, particularly at the start. From the moment Maxwell strode to the crease he made it look like a different wicket."

Maxwell hit 11 boundaries in his innings, two of them reverse-swept to the deep -cover boundary off R Ashwin. Bailey said he had no reason to ask his partner to take it easy as Maxwell had worked on the shot in the nets. "He practises that as much as I've ever seen anyone practise it. No more so than I see Shane Watson practising the straight drive. If that's a shot he's put the time into - and we've seen him put that time into it - then he has absolutely every right to play it. As long as the circumstances are right. I think the field that he had and the plan that he had was spot on. And he executed them both very well."

Australia were positive about defending 295 before the rain came down with India 27 for 0 in 4.1 overs, Bailey said. "We were confident but I'm sure India probably were as well. Given the way the series has gone... strong batting line-up, I'm sure they would've been. We just felt there was enough movement in the wicket, particularly early on. Looking at our scorecard it would suggest that new batters found it difficult at the wicket. It was hard to get started. We were hoping if we could get a couple of wickets you could make that quite challenging. And certainly the pace that Mitch (Johnson) was getting it through early on, it looked like that was going to be quite difficult to play at different stages at the game.

"Certainly 50 overs we were confident and happy to back. I think the way Duckworth-Lewis is set up, I think if it had become a 20-over game it probably would've suited India quite a bit."

test cricket's unique I think as mental strength and the ability to convert that to runs is what it is all about.

Posted by indicricket on (October 28, 2013, 9:34 GMT)

It is not just the number of runs, it is the way he has scored the runs that calls for a test cap. Not only the runs, the way he has carried his team on and equally importantly, off the field is commendable. You almost like the team from OZ. :)

Posted by   on (October 27, 2013, 16:34 GMT)

he & Maxwell are performing very well in India...

Posted by Timmuh on (October 27, 2013, 1:03 GMT)

He needs First Class runs. Only if he can be among the better First Class players should his ability to step from dometic to internataional in another game make any difference. His most recenbt First Class form is a while back now, but dismal. Unfortunately for him, thans to the ineptitude of CA, he will only have one game before the Brisbane squad is announced. He could well force his way in by the third Test but until then its hard to build a case based on multiday cricket. I suspect he will be picked, and if so I hope his form doies translate across games, but picking Test teams on short-game form is fraught with danger. For example, it is how Xavier Doherty has played Test matches.

The Selectors would be foolish to ignore George Bailey's solidity, maturity, leadership, seniority and consistent contributions in runs - both as Captain of Tassie who won the Sheffield Shield, and as ODI Captain. He is the RIGHT choice for the Number 4 or Number 6 Test spot. My Team for the Gabba Test IN BATTING ORDER would be: Ed Cowan, Chris Rogers, Shane Watson, George Bailey, Michael Clarke, Steve Smith, Brad Haddin, Peter Siddle, Mitchell Johnson, Ryan Harris, Nathan Lyon. WE'LL WIN THE ASHES WITH THIS TEAM. GO, AUSSIES, GO!

berly should play in the 1st test i think he will bat at no 6 and i seriously think berly should lead aus in the odis becoz i think clarke at the moment not like playing odis .last one year he rested from several odi series in 2015 in mind aus selector should give berly captainship job and give him backing .

Posted by cnksnk on (October 25, 2013, 9:22 GMT)

I am surprised that Bailey is only on the fringes of selection. May be he is scoring runs in ODI, but he seems to be doing it consistently and under pressure. These are international and even India's bowling must be on par or better than some of some of the domestic bowling. He is playing in front of hugh crowds and playing proper cricket shots. No harm in giving it a shot. He may be late bloomer. And any way it is not like there is a surfeit of talent and Bailey is being picked in place of Michel Hussey or some one of his caliber. To me he is a straight shoo in and can also handle the captaincy in case Clark does not last the full series as seems likely at this point in time.

Posted by Vilander on (October 25, 2013, 8:21 GMT)

Bailey is a gun, strong willed cricketer. Reminds me of a certain P Collingwood. Respect. 'two eyes on the ball', the way he said ' do you think so' when Sashtri said the flat pitch was a beauty was epic. Like the guy, cheers from India.

Posted by   on (October 25, 2013, 7:35 GMT)

I don't think there is any doubt Bailey should be in the test team.

Posted by   on (October 25, 2013, 4:21 GMT)

Give him the captiaincy in world cup with this team and add cummins,helfinhous,siddle to the team,he will give you a world cup,he is a born leader and just a tiger

my batting order for Brisbane test: warner rogers watson clarke bailey smith haddin siddle pattinson(if fit) harrris lyon

Posted by   on (October 25, 2013, 3:26 GMT)

Don't count Mark Cosgrove out either. He has lost 16kg and counting, which is great to see. Better late than never.

Posted by ShutTheGate on (October 24, 2013, 23:02 GMT)

@ James Knott as much as I'd like to see Katich back in the test side I can't see it happening. We'd have a better chance of Hussey or Ponting coming back IMO.

My 11 for Brisbane:

1: Rogers 2: Warner 3: Watson 4: Clarke 5: Smith 6:Bailey 7: Haddin 8: Johnson 9: Siddle 10: Harris 11: Lyon

I agree with @ Jimbond who else is there for number 6? Faulkner perhaps but he's a strong ODI player like Bailey. Kawajha perhaps? But like Bairstow for England I think he needs more time in first class cricket before stepping up.

Posted by Mary_786 on (October 24, 2013, 22:39 GMT)

Edwards that's a very good point, i didn't realise that all the selectors are at the Ryobi games, that in itself is a gread indication of where their priorities lie(i.e domestic cricket) and the fact that they know that you can't pick ashes batsman based on runs in the Indian pitches.(completely different conditions)

Posted by   on (October 24, 2013, 21:35 GMT)

Dont look into first class averages, u look Bailey's oneday international average, it is 53 plus. Maintaining average 50 + after playing 33 matches with strike rate around 90 is not an easy thing and it shows the talent of the cricketer. Adam Gilchrist is basically a specialist oneday batsman and without much techniques he was a superb test batsman averaging 47 and Australia got lots of victories through his speed batting. So without second thinking australia should give a chance to Bailey in No.6 position in test cricket

Posted by Ozcricketwriter on (October 24, 2013, 21:22 GMT)

A chase of 300 off 50 overs is pretty tough, but a chase of 150 off 20 overs is very easy. This, if nothing else, highlights that Duckworth-Lewis needs some new figures. 160 in T20s is considered to be par, an average score, whereas in ODIs that figure is about 250. Using that as a basis, 300 off 50 should equate to about 170-175 off 20. That would have been fair and would have made for an exciting match. Thankfully the rain washed out the game rather than reducing it to a 20 over absurdity that would have handed India the win. On the other hand, had India been chasing 170-175 off 20 and got there, then they would have probably deserved it. It is high time that they get rid of D/W and replace it with something better. As for Bailey, he is a certainty for the 1st test.

Posted by Nampally on (October 24, 2013, 20:37 GMT)

It is strange that Bailey's ODI performance is being used to consider him for the tests. In India Pujara, is considered unsuitable for ODI based on his astounding success in the Tests with a batting average of 65!. Hopefully the Australians consider the ODI & the Test versions are not so different. ODI should only be considered a faster version of Tests with odds in ODI's heavily in favour of batsmen, especially so Vs. India. I wonder whether the success of Maxwell & Bailey can be equated to Tests in Ashes series with much better England seamers than Indian seamers. Even in ODI 4, the Australians were lucky due to the fact that B.Kumar - the best swing bowler in India today- was dropped. Had B.Kumar & Shami operated in pair, the OZ batting woes would have doubled. Even with Shami on his own, had the chances offered by Bailey & Maxwell were taken both would have been dismissed cheaply. However,If they are selected for Ashes series against England, I wish them both Best of Luck!

If they aren't going to play as the all-rounder as they did in the last test of the Ashes in England, bring Bailey in for sure. He does have a fine temperament, and he has scored ODI runs in different conditions against quality attacks on a consistent basis. His first class average of 38 isn't the greatest, but then the likes of Hughes who averages a bit more, isn't really test class and Khawaja's temperament is suspect, and Australia are not really in the era wher the likes of Michael Hussey had to wait up to the age of 31 to get a test call up. Bailey should certainly be in the squad, and if they are going with 4 bowlers and Watson, then he should most certainly play as well.

Posted by   on (October 24, 2013, 11:41 GMT)

1: Rogers 2: Warner 3: Watson 4: Katich 5: Clarke 6: Smith 7: Haddin 8: Siddle 9: Harris 10: Stark 11: Lyon

CA have just admitted a mistake in dropping Katich. Time to ask him if he would be willing to play again. This would allow Clarke to return to his favoured number 5 position. There is enough depth in this batting line up to post big scores against England.

CA should encourage the groundsman to prepare as good as surface as they can and not the green tops of the last series as this will put both the batters and the bowlers under more pressure and didn't work in 2011/11.

Stark is a wicket taker and troubles Cook, Trott and Pieterson. He will have some off moments, but will get big wickets and score useful runs.

Watson, Siddle and Lyon can provide control and if Harris stays fit for the whole series he will probably be the leading wicket taker on either side.

Hughes, Kawaja and Johnson have too much baggage against England to be effective. Bailey in if Katich not selected.

Posted by Edwards_Anderson on (October 24, 2013, 10:25 GMT)

Stop picking ODI players for test positions, we have to focus on runs in our conditions on pitches where 360 is not being scored in 40 overs. Warner and Khawaja are a must in the lineup as they are doing it in domestic cricket(Ryobi) and i am predicting they will take this form into shield and will be key for the ashes as they both plays pace and swing bowling very well and our pitches will be pacy to ensure Swann doesn't do the same thing to us that he did in England. If Bailey scores in the return shield game then select him but you can't pick for the ashes based on ODI conditions in India otherwise why have shield cricket and the fact that Rod Marsh, Inevarity and boof are at the Ryobi games is indicative that selectors know as much.

Posted by   on (October 24, 2013, 10:25 GMT)

Considering much of his FC career has been played on green-tops, Bailey's 38 average is probably more like an English 45-odd (which is probably an Indian 60! :P). Remember that the season before last he played pretty darn well - one bad summer should not tar him as a one-day specialist.

Posted by Amith_S on (October 24, 2013, 10:07 GMT)

I think the number 6 spot will be either Bailey, Khawaja or Hughes. Based on early domestic form on our ptiches i am tipping Khawaja as he has been the best batsman for top of the table bulls in Ryobi and i think he will take this into the shield games and ultimately selectors will pick on shield form not on form on dusty bowling graveyards in India.

Posted by Mary_786 on (October 24, 2013, 10:00 GMT)

Warner, Rogers, Watson, Khawaja, Clarke, Smith, Haddin, Johnson, Siddle, Harris, Lyon.I think Bailey, Khawaja and Hughes will fight out for the 6 spot, Bailey has been in good form in India, Khawaja has been in good form in Ryobi but ultimately it will be up to the shield performances and may the best man get the final spot. My tip is that Khawaja will take his ryob form into early shield games and get the number 6 spot.

Posted by jimbond on (October 24, 2013, 9:56 GMT)

Normally he wouldn't stand a chance. But then right now, who would be better than Bailey at No. 6? The only other name could be Watson, but then he also fits in at No. 3. Smith at 4 and Clarke at 5 are settled options. Therefore, if Mike Hussey doesnt agree to come back, Bailey can stay on at No. 6 for the tests.

Posted by   on (October 24, 2013, 9:54 GMT)

Ofcourse . He is an impact player . Can play shots and Can emerge an inns too . Aus need sm1 like him to win the ashes at home ..

Posted by PrasPunter on (October 24, 2013, 6:59 GMT)

I believe Bailey should be the one for WC 2015. Given the Ryobi cup performances, we have enough cover for Pup.

Posted by   on (October 24, 2013, 6:42 GMT)

Bailey is a gutsy cricketer. He may have a medicore record in First Class cricket but he surely has the courage to gut it out at the highest level. Bailey brings discipline and tenacity to the table. Aussies can certainly do with these qualities at the moment. Remember, Michael Vaughan had a similar First Class average, yet he emerged as one of the most successful batsman for England, especially between 2001 to 2003. (He could have done better had it not been for the chronic knee injury and the pressures of captaincy.)

Posted by   on (October 24, 2013, 6:37 GMT)

Yes, George Bailey deserves a chance. he reminds me of Paul Collingwood and Paul was branded as more of a ODI player than a test match player and did not too bad in tests!

Posted by Biso on (October 24, 2013, 6:12 GMT)

Bhuvi would have been effective on that surface. I doubt Australia would have scored beyond 220 if both Shami and Bhuvi had bowled (with Vinay dropped ). Time for selectors to see off Vinay for good. He was pathetic on that sporting wicket. it seemed Shami and Vinay were bowling on pitches 100 miles apart. Unadkat doesn't look like a bowler at all. He runs in faster than he can bowl.

Posted by sachin_vvsfan on (October 24, 2013, 5:50 GMT)

I think Faulkner also deserves(as allrounder) one shot in ashes along with bailey

Posted by   on (October 24, 2013, 5:48 GMT)

Bailey is one of the few on field gambles Aust cricket have taken recently that has actually worked. He seems to have the man management skills that Clarke doesnt seem to have and his batting under pressure over the last year has been invaluable. Adding him to the Aust test team as a future (if not present) vice captain could strengthen the team as a unit. The big question is his ability to face the red ball. Lets hope he can get back to Aust soon and get into Shield cricket and the Aust A side to strengthen his case.

Posted by siddhartha87 on (October 24, 2013, 5:43 GMT)

@tram not sure why are you blaming Dhoni for Bhuvanshawar exclusion.FYI your " one man wrecking machine" took just 1 wicket in 1st 3 matches.

bailey deserves spot in ashes ahead of khwaja

Posted by Beertjie on (October 24, 2013, 5:41 GMT)

"I think there's probably eight guys who have got a chance of playing in that Ashes team. It's so far away. It's just ridiculous to look at it. There's guys who will be at home playing Shield cricket, we've got Australia A games when we get back." Very apt indeed, George. Now who should play for Aus A and be among the 8 players? Well first those who do not need to play because we "know them": Khawaja, Hughes and David Hussey (just watch them in Shield games instead). As for Aus A I'd have Maddinson, Marsh, Doolan, Ferguson, Bailey and Voges in that team to see how they shape up against England. Thereafter sit down and make as good a selection as possible of two guys for your squad of 13.

george bailey deserves ashes spot

Posted by landl47 on (October 24, 2013, 4:02 GMT)

Sensible words from Bailey and typical of him to give the credit to Maxwell instead of talking about how well he is playing. It's hard to judge how well he's captaining the side; this was the lowest Australian innings at 295, due to a combination of some decent batting, poor Indian bowling and very flat wickets, which is always going to give you a chance to win. However, they do appear to be enjoying themselves, which is good.

He's certainly doing himself no harm when it comes to the last Ashes batting spot.

Posted by CrICkeeet on (October 24, 2013, 3:37 GMT)

George really dsevrs a chance, if u look at the last ashes per4mnc of d batsmen

Posted by   on (October 24, 2013, 3:32 GMT)

Indian bowling is very much different from England bowling. India always have a heritage of making zeros and out of form batsmen champs. Any out of form batsman will always return with success after the India tour and again will miserably fail outside. We can't judge this lot of Bailey & Maxwell to perform the same way against a quality attack comprising of Anderson, Finn & Broad. We can easily see how Aus struggle against quality bowling when the ball swings at 140 KPH. Looking forward to another 5-0 or 4-1 thrashing by England on Australian soil. Looking at how injury prone Clarke is Bailey could be taken to back him up for the Ashes.

Posted by Neela80 on (October 24, 2013, 2:50 GMT)

Well Done Bailey and Maxwell. No one can/should make it to Ashes Squad based on performances on flat Indian tracks. It rather should be the other way round. If you cant bat/score big like Watson, Haddin or Voges on flat tracks against a poor bowling unit, you cannot claim spot in the Ashes Squad.

Although Watson has about three more innings more to go, if he does not score a century, he should loose his place to who ever performs well in Shield and Aus.-A Cricket.

For bowlers, though, it is different, Aussies have missed Mitch so very much in England, if he can bowl quick, bounce, swing, take wickets on Indian pitches why not on Ashes pitches. Hope the Aus Selectors are listening. Although, I am not a big fan of Aus-Ashes-Squad, I would like to watch good competitive Ashes Test Matches and for that the need Mitch and probably Faulkner.

Posted by RaadQ on (October 24, 2013, 2:49 GMT)

ODI performances on flat pitches aren't always the best indicators for test selection, look at players like eoin morgan. Then again, Australia don't have that many quality test batsmen and Bailey could succeed down the order where the ball isn't moving. He should definitely be given a shot, but if he is going to be a long term prospect, I would bring him in after the Ashes. I still regard him highly as a limited overs player, but as his domestic FC average shows, limited overs isn't test cricket!

Posted by   on (October 24, 2013, 2:37 GMT)

Bailey has proved his leadership skills more than Micheal Clarke !

Posted by SamRoy on (October 24, 2013, 2:33 GMT)

People forget how much his record has been hampered in the last 3-4 years by extremely green seaming pitches in Bellerive Oval, Hobart. Some of those pitches have been ridiculous and made bowlers like Faulkner and Jackson Bird look much better than they actually are. We all saw that in the Ashes. Any way, the best possible top 7 is Rogers, Maddinson (the most talented young batsman in the country), Watson(as an all-rounder), Steve Smith, Michael Clarke, George Bailey and Chris Hartley (somebody pick a decent keeper, if top 6 can't do a job a half-batsman disguised as a keeper can't as well). Since Gilchrist's retirement this relentless quest to find the next Gilchrist has lead to Australia bringing to international cricket one good one - Manou (for 1 test), one bad one - Haddin and one pathetic one (and easily the worst in the world) - Wade.

Posted by TRAM on (October 24, 2013, 1:01 GMT)

Cant believe Dhoni dropped Bhuvaneshwar. If he had bowled at the other end Aus would have been 40 for 5 or 6. Dhoni has no cricketing reason to drop Bhuvaneshwar. You dont drop your only "early wkt taking" bowler. Atrociously he also commented negative about Bhuvi's death bowling when no one was bowling well at the death - especially the 'pace bowling spear head'.

Posted by azzaman333 on (October 24, 2013, 0:36 GMT)

Bailey, Faulkner, Watson, Hughes, Johnson and Haddin should all come home and prepare for the Ashes in the Shield. Give Henriques, Ferguson, Coulter-Nile a game, and send over Maddinson, Paine and Cutting who aren't quite in contention for the Gabba test.

Posted by passionate_cricket_follower on (October 24, 2013, 0:36 GMT)

I'd definitely have Bailey in the Ashes team as Clarke's deputy. He is an natural leader who leads from the front. He can be at number 3, or number 5 in the lineup with Clarke at number 4. Both #3 and #5 have been vulnerabilities in the Oz lineup at the last Ashes.

Posted by hmmmmm... on (October 23, 2013, 23:29 GMT)

I would normally not suggest selecting someone on their ODI performances (as has been our problem of late) but if Aaron Finch is thinking he could play a test then George Bailey should have been in the team a long time ago - definitely before Maxwell, Warner, Smith...

Have to admit that I had originally doubted his selection as T20 captain and then to the ODI side but he has really shown that he has the temperament to bat in all conditions and he has proven himself a very good leader. I think what makes him perfect for Hussey's old spot is that he can graft and build an innings under pressure but has also developed an ability to go hard and hit out when the situation requires/allows...you need both when you find yourself either 4/not much on a regular basis! The other under estimated part to this is the ability to bat with others - look at Hussey's role in getting Clarke to his double/triple tons.

Posted by Naresh28 on (October 23, 2013, 22:03 GMT)

Bailey should be giving Oz new hope - Clarke having back problems. He seems to be a good leader and thinks well. The only worry is his age - blossoming late? I see Oz giving him more chances to play Hussey type role.

Posted by Gaswell on (October 23, 2013, 21:49 GMT)

I agree with uyou mredz84. After all, Micheal Clark had a fairly unspectacular 1st class average when he was first selected. AS did Shane Warne. There is something sure and steady about the way he bats and a slight indication his game may be well suited to the longer format. Add to that the fact that Australia doesn`t have an obvious successor to Clark. He could be a sensible choice.

Posted by emceedrive on (October 23, 2013, 21:30 GMT)

If Bailey were maybe 26-28 instead of 31, I'd say he should be playing all 3 formats of the game just for his ability to be a future captain. As it stands, I still think he might deserve a look in for the test squad, but the Oz selectors operate by their own standards. About as kooky as their Indian counterparts. Giving Khawaja a good, solid run of tests at a consistent place in the line-up instead of experimenting with guys averaging around 30 in shield cricket is a good place to start. Stopping the merry-go-round of spinners is another good idea. I still can't figure out what Nathan Hauritz did exactly wrong (who doesn't get thrashed in India); but Lyon is the guy they've got, so let'em bowl will ya?

But back to topic, yeah, I can see Bailey coming into the test side if he conks out a few good innings in A cricket and in the Shield. It doesn't really matter much though; England are pretty well going to win this series unless they choke mightily.

Posted by   on (October 23, 2013, 20:05 GMT)

So what's wrong even if the Test selection is on Bailey's mind? He deserves a place in the side to be honest. He's much better than Khawaja and Steve Smith

Posted by   on (October 23, 2013, 18:31 GMT)

Australia needs someone like George Bailey both as a Batsman & deputy of Clarke....It's very pathetic to see Australia's batting line-up fighting hard..The way Bailey leads Australia is very encouraging ..Bailey is a natural leader..His smile & appearance on the field has great impact on his team..Whatever his first class record is, he should be given chance on Ashes...he is a different player with Aussies cap
