The Aussies are acting like a hybrid of Small Heath/Bitters/Doghead fan saltiness at England's good fortune and the fact that NZ got robbed and it was a tie.  The main point of contention being around the count back not being on wickets lost but boundaries scored.   

Their outrage is absolutely brilliant.

Seemed like some fair comments to me. Not really much outrage.

Yeah you probably need to look at the ABC facebook page and had some of the conversations I've had at work for that in fairness.  I'd share the link but i'm IT illiterate in that sort of thing im afraid.

Dom Sibley might be in with a shout over Roy.

I suspect he'll be the next one to get a chance but that they'll go with Roy for the world cup 'feel good' factor.

As I understand the rules, It's not an overthrow, till it's "mis-fielded". so the original throw was going to the bowlers end, once it hit the batsmen, it was then an overthrow. The ball was being fielded to the bowler and would have been fielded by him, plus there was a kiwi backing up the bowler.

I would be tempted to get Mark Wood in ahead of Curran.

He's shown good fitness during the WC and if it doesn't swing then Curran is cannon fodder.

He went off with a side strain after his spell in the final, I donít know how serious it was.

I like Curran. He feels like the forgotten man, but heís class and heís put in a great showing for the Lions.

It does generally swing in England though. He was excellent last summer.

I think he was good at the start of the India series, then became less effective as the summer went on. His batting is his stronger suit in my opinion, but possibly not strong enough alone to warrant inclusion.

He's a talented cricketer no doubt who should continue to improve, but I'd look at the side with Anderson, Woakes and even Stokes who can be very effective when its swinging, and want an extra strike bowler for when its flat.

I think pace will be important on pitches with no ICC interference and a red Dukes ball. So Archer and Wood must play as long as Wood stays fit.

I like Woakes and I think Curran has that X Factor which he showed last season. So if Woods comes in then itís a choice between Woakes and Curran.

Nice selection headaches to have though.

I left wood out because this is the 4th or 5th bowler so it needs someone who can get runs. I think Wood can only come in as 10 or 11 and he's behind Archer and Jimmy.

Not sure that they need five seamers.

Foakes might play instead of Curran

Foakes batted three for the Lions, which is interesting.
