After the Perth match I pointed out that the Aussies are still a weak team and that has once again been shown at the MCG.
The selectors committed suicide by retaining Hughes and not selecting a spinner given the 4 seamers as a group are at best average.
But the Aussie batting is not only the worst in the history of Australian cricket but easily the worst in the whole of current test cricket. Even without 2 first choice bowlers England still run through the Aussie batting with consumate ease.
Watson is NOT an opening batsman and never will be - ever. Move him to number 6.
Smith is way out of his depth at this level.
Hughes should never wear a baggy green again absolutely hopeless.
Clarke is not fit mentally or physically fit and 100% out of form -drop him too.
Ponting a great player gone to seed must be dropped as soon as possible.
Hussey will have to pay another year given he's shown plenty form but must move to 4 or even 3.
Haddin a godd player in a hopeless team - it would be unfair to blame him for the inability of the batters to score runs.
Harris is okay but hardly the future of Australian cricket at his age.
The other 3 are largely hopeless unless the the wicket is entirely bowler friendly.
