    He's found some form and this is the perfect opportunity to get some more international experience under his belt.

    Your head is going to explode in a second...

    Steve Smith: 12 innings in 13 matches, 301 runs @ 37.62 at a strike rate of 142.62, scoring 2 half centuries.

    Even more astonishing

    Cameron White: 9 innings in 9 matches, 345 runs @ 43.12 at a strike rate of 150.00, scoring 3 half centuries.

    Steve Smith is a talent, always rated him and I fucking hate how people say his form didn't warrant test selection. He shat on everything Warner did at a younger age, yet he's better than Bradman and Smith is a potato?

    Lee and Johnson though.. England must be licking their lips because, lets face it, they'll both be picked.

    Taking 6 fast bowlers does give us options though.

    Cummins, Patto, Hilf, McKay, Lee and Johnson.

    At least we're not completely stuck with them when they bowl shit.

    Although, we're playing 1 game against Ireland, so maybe they can play that one.

    Have you seen his IPL form?

    Seems that the selectors have put a bit of stock (rightly or wrongly) in recent form.

    Well that explains Lee & Johnson's inclusion

    Johnson's inclusion is understandable, but Lee's IPL form has been the worst of all the Australian's over there.

    He couldn't hit the broad side of a barn with the ball.

    So yes, point taken.

    Although the selectors love him.

    Lee's "form" has been the same for 24 months. He's just fucking shit.
