|1. If you've decided Wade and Nevill are history, why go to 34 y.o. Paine ? He's not even keeping for Tasmania and he's not in particularly good batting form.
Alex Carey was a few pundits' choice and is 8 years younger than Paine.
2. Shaun Marsh at #6 ?? Again, if you reckon Maxwell, Henriques and Cartwright weren't up to it, why not go for 25 y.o. Jake Lehmann, instead of the 34 y.o. Marsh - who opens for WA ? Boof's son young and in form. Has a century, this season.
This will be Marsh's 8th. recall to the Test team.
Bancroft was a cert, given his form and Renshaw's.
It's a game. Enjoy it.
