AUSTRALIA'S new Twenty20 skipper George Bailey has been a surprise inclusion in the one-day squad to tour the West Indies, along with spinner Nathan Lyon.

Both have been rewarded for their good form across all forms of the game.
 
Brad Haddin has also been chosen as the reserve wicket-keeper in the 16-man squad.

James Pattinson has also been included after his return from injury but fellow fast bowlers Ryan Harris and Mitchell Starc have been overlooked.
 
Harris, who has struggled with knee and shoulder injuries during the one-day series, remains in contention for the Test squad to be named within the next fortnight.
 
And Starc will travel with the one-day squad to continue his development.
 
Brad Hogg has been left out of the 13-man Twenty20 squad but chairman of selectors John Inverarity claimed the reborn veteran was still in contention for the T20 World Cup in Sri Lanka during September.

"The ODI squad is the same as the squad for the one-day finals series beginning next week with the addition of three players in Brad Haddin, Nathan Lyon and George Bailey," Inverarity said.

"This completes a well-balanced squad and it is anticipated that most players will receive good opportunities to show their worth.
 
"Shane Watson and Mike Hussey come back into the T20 squad to provide a great deal of experience and power to the batting line-up.
 
"If we were to select our best T20 team to play next week the top seven in order would be Watson, Warner, Mike Hussey, David Hussey, Bailey, Wade and Christian.

"Hence, there was simply no room on this occasion for Shaun Marsh, Travis Birt and Aaron Finch.
 
"Though Peter Forrest is in the T20 squad, it is not anticipated he will be in the team and is there as back-up.
 
"As was stated in January, Brad Hogg was not considered for this tour. However, he remains in strong contention to be a member of our ICC World Twenty20 squad which is likely to include three spin bowlers.
 
"Additionally, Mitchell Starc has not been selected as a member of this squad. However, Mitchell will travel with this group as a further development opportunity and spend valuable time around the Australian squad in the West Indies."

Hopefully Pattinson and Cummins can get up for that. Would be good for them to get experience on England's wickets before the ashes next year.

Thought it may have been that...

Good win by the Aussies. But what has to be taken from the series is that our batsmen, on the whole, failed to stand up. Apart from Wade, did any other of our batsmen score centuries? Whilst scoring half centuries will keep you in the game, they will not necessarily translate into victory being had.



Yeah agreed, that's where I think we need to see some major improvement ahead of the Ashes next year. I think our bowlers (ie. Pattinson, Cummins, Harris, Hilfenhaus, Siddle, Lyon etc) can go head-to-head with the Poms, but I think they have the better batting side at the moment.

I still think Watson needs to bat at 6... I just don't think he's a top order batter in Tests. He's much better suited down the order, without the pressure of batting at the top. My batting order would be:

Warner, Cowan, Clarke, Ponting, Hussey, Watson, Wade etc etc.





Yeah you can't easily get back on the train in terms of facing the new ball if you have been out because of injury...6th would be much better, suits a more aggresive batsman anyway...time for Clarke to step up into that no.3 spot me thinks

@ HDT - not sure

Great job by the Aussies on the win and series win, great job by Clarke getting 5 Wickets!



Yeah it was a great effort by the team. Sammy & Shillingford had me worried at the end there though...

Still need lots of improvement ahead of the Ashes next year though, but if we keep heading in this direction I think we'll be pretty right.

Good job by the boys last night... Chanderpaul had me worried for a while until Clarkey got him in the last over. Looking good.

Geez that Chanderpaul is a good player through isn't he... He's a proper Test batsman. Unfortunately he's apart of a dying breed of batsmen (with Rahul Dravid retiring this year). It's alittle sad that with the rise of T20, his kind of batting is deemed "boring". Very sad.

Good job by the Aussies, and Warner did get a wicket, yes!
But as for Haddin, Clarke has his back, he's going through a tough time with his daughter, I just wish his family the best.

But I think Wade is doing fine. Haddin needs a little time off. (for family reasons)

However, he is not the number 1 gloveman in the country anymore. He is 3 at best. And his reckless batting has cost us too many times over the years.



I agree. He is no longer the player he once was...

Brad Who?



Yeah... There's no way that Haddin can come straight back into the team. As much as I admire loyalty in sport, the fact is that Wade is the better player currently and deserves to be in the team. Brilliant knock by him!

And we're looking good with the WI @ 8/165 (although they are getting away alittle from us at the end there).



Good job Australia.

But its NSW loyalty right there. He and Clarke go right back to when they were playing shield cricket together in 2002/2003...but sometimes you just have to see the writing on the wall and realise that there is a better player out there...
