    Very good game and great to see March in the runs. What do the selectors do about Finch? Just can't keep carrying a flop at the top of the innings. But I guess 'rotation' Hohns will keep on keeping on.

    I think Finch needs to be dropped so he can go back the big bash to regain some form.

    That right there is the real problem in Australian cricket. Going back to the hit and giggle sh*t to try and find form.

    Absolute joke that this format takes up as much time that it does over the course of summer.

    P*ss it off and get back to proper cricket. If the players are mercenaries and go after the money they can go play it in other countries domestic comps.

    He was tried this year as a test player and failed. All that is left for him is the hit and giggle cricket.

    Or go back and work on proper cricket playing proper shots?

    For mine the hit and giggle crap ruins concentration, timing and patience. Our batsmen get a start and then play the silly big shot. Sure switch from Tests to ODI, but T20 is a different kettle of fish and avoid cross pollination.

    Exactly. Basically none of our players could last multiple sessions at the crease. It’s an embarrassment. That Indian bowling line up was ok but if they played 10,15,20 years ago they would of been carted all over the park. We made them look world class.

    Hopefully that will be the end of Finch. His footwork is non existent and he cannot get his bat into position to hit a ball on the stumps, in defence or attack.

    And the end of Hohns and Chappell. Last century's men.

    Finch's batting is a liability, hopefully he never plays for Australia again.

    It's time for Messrs Hohns and Chappell to become amateur selectors like the rest of us.
