I hope to be proved wrong, but I'm not entirely satisfied with the team.
Apart from Haddin, who I've argued for years should not be there, I'm not a fan of bringing Johnson back. Yes, he's been bowling faster than he has for a few years, but the guy is 32, and will be opening the bowling with a 34yo. It's a bandaid solution. Personally, I would have thought that Ben Cutting might have been seriously considered. Home ground, in form, also batting up a storm...
I have mixed emotions about Bailey. Based on ODI performances, and on Shield last year, yes. And, I think that, being picked, he should have been made VC straight away, as he's shown that he's an astute captain, and Clarke is no certainty to play the series. However, he is already 31, and I really can't see him still around when he's 35. Perhaps the selectors see him as a short-term fix like Johnson, and want to have a longer look at guys like Lynn, Doolan etc.
Glad to see Faulkner in the 12. He will be the star player in the Australian team in the not-too-distant future. He has the goods to be our Flintoff.
I don't get any older.... I just get better!
